This week Beth and Wendy talk about Somkid Pumpuang, a Thai serial killer who murdered 5 women, was sentenced to life, but released in 2019 for good behavior. This turned out to be not such a great idea.
(note: time stamps are without ads & may be off a little)
We thank our listeners and supporters (6:14). Subject intro and Stats (10:18) then we dive into the Setting (12:24), the killers early life (28:40) and the timeline (33:28). Then, we get into the Investigation & Arrest P.1 (39:38) and Investigation & Arrest P.2 (42:45) followed by “Where are they now?” (51:04). We get into our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (53:02).
As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (59:10) and shout outs (1:03:18).
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!
