Ep. 161/162 The Prowler Parts 1&2

Updated: Oct 16, 2023


Part 1: "Extreme Personal Rage"


In the Summer of 1990, three women fell into the crosshairs of a dangerous man. They were regulars among Bellevue, Washington's vibrant, hard-partying nightlife, and they were murdered- their broken bodies violated and posed after death. Their killer's method linked them as a series, whose recurrences were growing nearer and nearer, but he'd left few clues aside from his violence. This is The Prowler, part one of two.


In part one of The Prowler, I told you about the murders of Mary Anne Pohlreich, Carol Beethe, and Randi Levine. Mary Anne was raped and killed in an unknown location, her body left posed after death. Carol and Randi were blitzed in their beds as they slept, beaten, raped, and mutilated. In part two, I'll tell you about the murderer of these women. A sinister man who began life as a lonely, unwanted child who would grow to become the first person ever tried for serial murder in King County, Washington.
