Wendy and Beth (and Minnie!) are at CrimeCon this week, so we are replaying our episode from CrimeCon 2021, when we discussed the case of Martin Gonzalez Escamilla, LIVE! Gonzalez is a serial killer who operated in Austin Texas. He killed women he was close to: his wife and his girlfriends.
We dive into the setting (5:22), the killers early life (9:45) and the timeline (12:54). Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (18:53), our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (29:45), followed by “Where are they now?” (26:11).
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!
