    Tommy Lynn Sells

    Tommy Lynn Sells

    The last serial killer we cover may go down as the worst person in history (according to Cristy).  His crimes are among some of the most heinous to research.  He managed to evade police for many years because he committed his crimes in MULTIPLE states.  He is likely to have committed way more than can be proven.  Join us as we discuss Tommy Lynn Sells.

    Gary Michael Hilton, also known as the National Forest Killer, was convicted of 4 murders between 2007 and 2008, all taking place in National Forests.

Staying in my closet

These two moms do a great job of covering cases. I love their chemistry together! Although I do agree with them on staying in my closet, there’s nothing closeted about my feelings for this show. 5 stars!

Fun!

It’s kinda cool listening to 2 friends hang out in their closets talking true crime. You seem like lovely people and I enjoy hearing your take on the cases.
