E139: Jaylen Fryberg

(note: time stamps are without ads & may be off a little)

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Jaylen Fryberg, a 15 year old Native American boy who shot five classmates, two of whom were his cousins, in what was the deadliest school shooting in the US in 2014. 

We dive into the setting (15:40), the killers early life (25:51) and the timeline (29:58).  Then, we get into “Where are they now?” (42:41) followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (45:41).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (52:27) and our shout outs (53:36). 

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!
