E42: Monster of Florence Pt. 2

The Monster of Florence shook the hills of Italy so strongly that two separate task forces were assigned to the case. Carter and Wenndy examine how the murderer affected local investigators as well as journalist Mario Spezi, who remained hot on the trail, even interviewing an anonymous source. Suspects ranged from a former convict with a suspicious painting, to practitioners of black magic to even Spezi himself.

E41 The Monster of Florence

When crime reporter Mario Spezi began a story on a murdered couple found in the Italian countryside, he had no idea what a wormhole this chilling tableau would open. The Monster of Florence shot couples and mutilated women, but were the related murders the work of a serial killer, copycat killings, or a member of the mafia gone rogue? Carter and Wenndy investigate the murders’ connections to a Sardinian clan, and discuss the life and theories of journalist Mario Spezi, who spent over 20 years writing about the crimes.
