E115: Aeman Presley

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Aeman Lovel Presley, an aspiring actor in Atlanta Georgia, who began killing random people as his acting career floundered.

We begin by thanking our listeners (5:17).  We get to the stats (13:35) then we dive into the setting (15:45), the killers early life (28:44) and the timeline (30:55).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (45:37). We get into our Take Aways and what we think made the perp snap (52:20).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (59:55) and some shout outs (1:02:59).  

Thanks for listening! This is a weekly podcast and new episodes drop every Thursday, so until next time… look alive y’all, it’s crazy out there!
