Episode 25: Junkyard Shoes

Updated: Jun 28, 2020


What started as affection for women’s shoes grew into a much darker fetish. While some boys dreamed of owning their own car and going to college, Jerry dreamed of torturing women. By 1968, his dreams would become reality when women began disappearing all over Oregon. Listen in  while Emily tells Alisha all about the life and crimes of Jerome Brudos, later known as ‘The Lust Killer’ and ‘The Shoe Fetish Slayer’.
