E125: Mark Garfield Moore

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the Canadian rapper and serial killer, Mark Garfield Moore. Moore was an aspiring Toronto rapper who committed four killings in 75 days, between September and November 2010. Most of the victims were random strangers.

We dive into the setting (13:49), the killer’s early life (30:06) and the timeline (33:15).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (40:47) followed by “Where are they now?” (57:34 ). We get into our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (1:01:49). 

As usual we close out the show with tips on how not to get murdered (107:48) and finally our shoutouts for the week (1:10:04). 

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