E168: Angel Maturino Reséndiz

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

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Angel Maturino Reséndiz aka The Railroad Killer, a Mexican serial killer suspected in as many as 23 murders across the United States and Mexico during the 1990s. 

First, we dive into the setting (09:47), the killers early life (20:57) and the timeline (25:00).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (41:37), “Where are they now?” followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (01:00:07).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered and our shout outs (01:11:05). 

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!
