Description

In 1983, Paladin Press, a fringe publisher, released a book called Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors. The author, who went by the pen name Rex Feral, offered very specific tips for the aspiring contract killer— where to find employment, how much to charge...and how to get away with murder. Ten years later, Tiffani Horn’s mother, 8-year-old brother, and a close family friend were found murdered. The exhaustive investigation involved multi-state surveillance and wiretaps, but it wasn’t until detectives stumbled upon Hit Man that they suddenly had what they called a blueprint for the murders. Hosted by journalist Jasmyn Morris.

This podcast has been incredibly informative, but the last couple of episodes makes me wonder if the production team has thought about the possibility that the girlfriend/fiance of "Rex" was not just physically abused, but also suffered severe emotional abuse while she was with him.

Dislike. Is it finished or on haiatus? Unsubscribed as it's not exactly rivetting/worth waiting for.

I feel so badly for the family members left behind, and the poor nurse who was just collateral damage. I hope Millie's daughters know what a fierce mother she was. It sounds like she was one in a million.
