    Introducing- Families Who Kill: The Donut Shop Murders

    In the era of some of the most heinous serial killers of all time, one murderous family went curiously unnoticed: The McCrarys. Led by a psychopathic patriarch and his cunning son-in-law, this Texas clan roamed the country robbing, kidnapping, and killing up to 20 people, most of them taken from donut shops.
    “Families Who Kill: The Donut Shop Murders” recounts the wild and deeply disturbing story of an unhinged American family and the terrible brutality they unleashed. The podcast features the taped confessions of one of the killers, given when he was serving a life term in Colorado.

Thanks Charlie

Thanks for giving a voice to those who have been robbed of theirs. You are always respectful and sensitive . Especially important with unsolved crimes to keep up awareness and to search for justice.
