Episode 42: Wicked Part of Me

Updated: Oct 14

Since 1849 there have been 110 executions in Washington State. In recent years, capital punishment was abolished in the state, however, not in time to save the lives of the three men we’ll discuss today. In today’s case, Emily tells you the stories that resulted in the three most recent executions in Washington State. Three men who were deemed too monstrous to keep their lives; one child rapist, one violent repeat offender and one torturer.
