This week Beth and Wendy discuss an unidentified serial killer that the Brazilian press dubbed “The Rainbow Maniac”. This is due to the fact that the murders took place at Paturis Park, Carapicuíba, Brazil, a known meeting place for gay men. This episode was researched and scripted by Minnie.

First, we dive into the setting (07:36) and the timeline (29:26). Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (32:57), “Where are they now?” followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (54:34).

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered and our shout outs (01:01:50). 

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!
