Kenyel William Brown was convicted on several charges including manslaughter and possession of a stolen handgun. While on parole after serving time, he failed drug tests, got arrested for drunken driving and missed mandatory meetings, among other violations, so he was arrested again. But he was released at the request of a federal law enforcement agency, because, as it turns out, he was a police informant. It was then, between 2019 and 2020, that a series of murders and other crimes in the Detroit area began.
(note: time stamps are without ads & may be off a little)
First, we dive into the setting (09:11), the killers early life (21:07) and the timeline (22:02). Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (36:40), “Where are they now?” followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (54:24).
As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered () and our shout outs (58:01).
This episode was researched & scripted by Minnie Williams.
