So…Chili killed the wrong girl for a limping guy named Lucky?! A lingering mystery at Lake Waco, part 1
This week’s podcast episode finds Becky & Merie discussing the (solved? unsolved?) case of three teenagers, Jill Montgomery, Raylene Rice, and Kenneth Franks, who were murdered at Lake Waco in 1982. Along the way, they address the burning questions you didn’t know you had, like:
Will Merie EVER get the intro to this show correct the first time???!!! IS there such s thing as Hustler Forum? Just how terrifying are Becky’s Baby Jane floating red lips? (Hint: “subtle” isn’t her middle name.) Which of your pod-coasts has the balls to declare, “I’m a pretty handsome dude!” What lone wolf cop character will be played by Tommy Lee Jones in the movie version of this tragedy? Can your pod-coasts get through one episode without the magazine Texas Monthly? (hint: no!) Is being found immediately after you’re murdered in your home a good reason to…attend church? Would Becky rather face a serial killer in a dark alleyway or attend Scarborough Fair? (hint: bring on Bundy!) How long into this episode does it take before we finally land on blaming a devil cult for this horrible triple murder? Come for Becky’s brag about knowing “a lot about life insurance.” Stay for the poor imitations of a French accent.
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
