E173: Robert Earnest Rozier Jr.

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

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Robert Earnest Rozier Jr., a black man who was convicted of four murders, but admitted to seven. This is not your typical serial killer story though, it’s about to get all culty up in this hizzle.

First, we dive into the setting (10:27), the killers early life (20:19) and the timeline (32:21).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (42:59), “Where are they now?” (51:08) followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (56:09).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered () and our shout outs (01:03:20). 

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!
