E169: James Allen Red Dog

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

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of James Allen Red Dog, a Native American man from the Lakota tribe, who was convicted of murdering a man in Delaware in 1991, but who also participated in many other crimes… including murder.

First, we dive into the setting (06:51), the killers early life (21:09) and the timeline ().  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (43:00), “Where are they now?” followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (57:10).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered and our shout outs (01:06:45). 

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!
