E191: MULTIPLE MURDERER – Junior Pashi Kabunda

E191: MULTIPLE MURDERER – Junior Pashi Kabunda

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Junior Pashi Kabunda, a Belgian man who was found guilty of murdering a 60 year old man, a 74 year old woman, an 18 month old little girl (his daughter) and the attempted murder of his ex-girlfriend. 

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

First, we dive into the setting (07:00), the killers early life  and the timeline (22:24).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (34:05), “Where are they now?” (39:25) followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (41:57).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered and our shout outs (47:11). 

This episode was researched & scripted by Wendy & Beth Williams and edited by Minnie Williams.

Carol Costello Present: Blind Rage. In this podcast, journalist Carol Costello revisits the first big assignment she covered as a 22-year-old, novice reporter: Phyllis Cottles’ brutal attack. Psychologists call them “Triumphant Survivors,” but Phyllis Cottle was more than a survivor, she used this crime to better herself and the world around her.
