E142: Yoo Young-chul Pt 1

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

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Yoo Young-chul aka The Raincoat Killer, South Korea’s most notorious serial killer.

This will be part one, please join us next week for part two. This subject was suggested to us by our Patreon Frances and was researched by Minnie.

We dive into the setting (12:54), the killers early life (22:47) and the timeline (28:40).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered and our shout outs (42:15). 

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!
