Episode 33 True Crime: The Black Widow of Sacramento and the Seal Beach Salon  Massacre

This was one of the first episodes we recorded, in a celebration of Clare Crawley who was announced as the Bachelorette for 2020… More info on that coming soon.

In case you forgot (I mean, how could you??), Megan and Clare are from Sacramento. So Megan covers the many crimes of Sacramento’s most infamous serial killer, Dorthea Puente, who was charged with 9 counts of murder. This case has a surprise personal twist for Megan! (Story starts at 7:08)

Clare is a hair stylist in California, so Danielle covers the Seal Beach Salon Meritage massacre. The shooting took the lives of 8 people and affected so many more, including the surviving victim (Story starts at 37:55).

Megan also mentioned the movie Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig’s love letter to Sacramento,  that everyone should watch. It’s available on Netflix! Check it out ASAP and send us an email with your thoughts.
