E136: Thierry Paulin

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Thierry Paulin, aka The Monster of Montmartre, a French serial killer active from 1984-1987.

We dive into the setting (10:45), the killers early life (28:57) and the timeline (31:25).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (46:31), “Where are they now?” (48:38) followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (50:54).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered and our shout outs (54:14). 

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!
