E160: The Legend of Queho LIVE at CrimeCon

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

At this CrimeCon live taping, Beth and Wendy talk about Queho, a Native American man from the Las Vegas area of Nevada. Queho has been credited with the deaths of 23 people in the early 20th century. He was declared Nevada’s “Public Enemy No. 1,” and the state’s first mass murderer. But was he really? 

First, we dive into the setting (05:55), the killers early life (16:37) and the timeline (20:16).  Then, we get into “Where are they now?” (30:36) followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (35:16).

We close out the show with some How Not to Get Murdered tips and listener questions(40:21). 

This episode was researched & scripted by Wendy & Beth Williams.

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!
