Rank #8: Case File 1: Inside the mind of a killer

Podcast cover

Just a little bit of a warning this episode might get a little uncomfortable especially if you have been a victim of rape or abuse or if you are close to someone who has been Im going to touch upon scenarios that are downright disgusting Im going to explore sexual deviancy Some of the thoughts and images im going to describe can be very disturbing But in order to hunt a killer you have to think like a killer Its not going to be pretty or polite but i think it must be done My first thought diving into this psychopaths head is what does it feel like to stab someone For a normal person I cant imagine it would feel good to hurt someone But for a killer it has to be an enormous release All that rage and pent up aggression finally explodes out But what does it feel like to stab someone 61 times How long does that even take Just over a minute Basically One stab per second Or do you just do a couple fast stabs in the beginning and then slowly poke them after they are dead How tired would your arm get if you were stabbing someone 61 times in a row Id imagine it might cramp up a little bit eventually Perhaps youd have to switch hands I cant imagine it would be any easier if you used both hands Who knows maybe its way easier to stab someone then i thought For my first case file I do a test to see how easy it is to stab someone 61 times and how long it would actually take Also I do a test to see how easy it is to pick up and carry someone Tinas size completely limp and dead weight Todays episode is sponsored by Audible go to wwwaudibletrialcomclosure and sign up for a free month and get a free book This episode is also sponsored by Hunt a killer Go to wwwhuntakillercom and use promo code closure at check out to save 20 off your first box wwwsearchingforclosurecom
