    (note: time stamps are without ads & may be off a little)
    This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of James Cornelius Brown, aka the Backpage Killer, a black man convicted of killing four women in his home in Sterling Heights, Michigan. He is said to have lured the women to their deaths using the website Backpage.com.
    First, we dive into the setting (10:00), the killers early life (27:11) and the timeline (32:00).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (40:10), "Where are they now?" (57:18) followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (58:00).  
    As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered and our shout outs (01:02:02). 
    This episode was researched & scripted by Minnie 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!

Jen A all Day ,

White person here

For all of the reviewers that are reviewing anything other than the show; check your privilege. POC cannot be racist against white people. Anyone can be discriminated against for any reason. Racism is a different concept. Also, if you are preaching equality… news flash! 1987 called and they want their color blindness philosophy back where it belongs. Don’t get it twisted, equity and equality are not the same thing.

mycalavery ,

You guys are awesome !!!

I love love love you guys !! I’ve been listening non stop !! The banter between you guys is awesome makes me want to listen more , I feel like I’m right there in the conversation with you guys !! Imma true crime addict and you guys are my fix !! Keep up the good work !!!!

Enjoying it!

I’m a true crime addict. I love you both. Just had 3rd baby and on maternity and you 2 keep me entertained during these sleepless nights.

I’m still catching up and so happy I have a lot more to go! When I first started listening I would fast forward the pre-talk, now I can’t miss a thing.

Keep up the great work!
