Love the show. Lots of brilliant information. A quick note, G. R. wasn't quoted saying " I hate the whole damned human race, including myself." That quote was made by Carl Panzram. That aside, keep up the great work!

How can you say these crimes were committed when the court conspirators were tortured to get their confessions. It's been proven that under torture most people will tell you anything you want to know. There seems to be no proof or evidence except hearsay

The so called “forensic evidence” in Naming Jack the Ripper is highly questionable and has actually been disproved by several other forensic scientists. But I do think Kominsky is the best suspect

Hey. Again : You're doing so good. I've forgotten to write this: the killers are extremely scaring. 😱At the same time they were brutalized when they were only little, defenceless children. That is soo sad, and if course we cannot condone their brutalization of other children/male or female or adults.. I hope and wish (and think) , USA has taken this in consideration and act to prevent these horribly, tortured kids to not become torturers too. Greetings from Denmark 🙏🤗

This makes me sick on so many levels. Somehow the fact that children were murdered isn't even the worst thing in this story 😨

I can appreciate your desire and effort to back up your explanations of psychology, but I personally would enjoy it more if you didn't cite all the sources within the episode. Maybe in the description? Just my opinion

It's more accurate to say, "if there wasn't a serial killer murdering women, they wouldn't have died."

I would have taken advantage of Heath before he even realized his serial killer tendencies. He sounds like he wouldn't be against it lol
