In many years past, Native American women were told to stuff dirt inside themselves if they were captured by the military, in the hopes the men would just kill them…and not defile them…A sobering statistic provided by IndianLaw.org “More than 4 in 5 American Indian and Alaska Native women have experienced violence, and more than 1 in 2 have experienced sexual violence”. I’m afraid that these numbers aren’t even accurate, as we know, these crimes often go unreported by the victims and local/national media. Candi Rough Surface is not just another victim.

Dubbed the “Christmas Killings”, the murder rampage claimed the lives of six innocent victims, while injuring two more. What makes this story more tragic is that the killings, while completely random and senseless, were committed by a 19-year old named Marvallous Keene and three members of his teenage gang who called themselves the Downtown Posse.

Wondery: Anaheim investigator Julissa Trapp is not like other detectives. She’s the only woman on the homicide squad, and a skilled chameleon: undercover cop in vice stings, crime-scene commander, patient confidante of killers. A master interrogator, she invokes her personal experience – and deepest griefs — as a tool to elicit confessions. When a young woman’s body is found at a trash-sorting plant, Trapp learns the murder may be linked to the disappearance of three other women in nearby Santa Ana. Trapp embarks on a dark journey that brings her face to face with a man who takes “a little piece of her soul.” Listen now at Wondery.fm/tcfcDT

This “Killer Handyman” did everything he could to hide his true intentions when he entered the home of unsuspecting women seeking his assistance. He was seen by most as quiet, shy, and pleasant. He was anything but – underneath it all was a monster who did whatever he could to fly under the radar for his next kill.
P.S. Sorry for the pronunciations! My Canadian is not great lol
