Description

Our case this episode involves very graphic and disturbing information. We hope that listeners will use discretion while listening.


In the summer of 1990, the nightlife in the greater Seattle area was hot. Police would be run ragged when a string breaking and entering and theft crimes begin to be reported in several neighborhoods. Then, 3 women are violently murdered within weeks of one another and the connection is almost overlooked leaving a killer on the loose.

That killer was George Waterfield Russell, Jr.

George was as gifted a con artist as you might ever meet. From his pre-teen years on Mercer Island, until he was arrested at the age of 32, his criminal activity as a thief and burglar was constant. It wasn’t always about the crime, it was about getting away with it. But he always had a story and a smile to work his way out of trouble.

George was the man on the scene in Bellevue, Washington in the early 90’s; he was truly in his element. He was everywhere and nowhere all at once. It wouldn’t take long before his life of petty crime would progress into some of the most horrific murders to this day in the Pacific NorthWest.

Join us this episode as we discuss the murders of Mary Ann Pohlreich, Carol Beethe and Andrea Lavine and their sociopathic killer, George Russell, Jr.
