The Laredo Serial Killer

If you’ve been immersed in the true crime world for some time, you’re likely aware of the unfortunate reality that perpetrators of violent crime disproportionately target specific groups in our society. Women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, drug users, and sex workers often find themselves facing violence at alarmingly higher rates than the general population. Tragically, the more these factors apply to an individual, the greater their vulnerability becomes to the darkest elements of society.

Thanks to Skip Hollandsworth of Texas Monthly, whose extensive coverage of this case made today’s episode possible.
