E167: Charles Lendelle Carter

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

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Charles Lendelle Carter, a serial killer from Atlanta, GA who murdered at least four people, one man and three women.

First, we dive into the setting (11:33), the killers early life (27:06) and the timeline (29:04).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (32:57), “Where are they now?” followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (01:00:17).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered and our shout outs (01:10:14). 

This episode was researched & scripted by Minnie 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!
