Description

We are starting off the new year with a wild story.


This episode came about when Jess began researching crimes in Australia. With Australia being 2nd to the US as far as listenership for weeks, it was interesting to search out some of the top crimes and criminals that were from that part of the world.


The case of the Wanda Beach Murders from the 1960’s stood apart from the rest, but it would lead to so much more.


Join us as we discuss cases and crimes that span over 2 decades, and 2 continents, that can all be linked to one disgusting man. Christopher Bernard Wilder.


Wilder had perfected his ways of luring beautiful, trusting young women from beaches and malls by presenting himself as a photographer on the hunt for the next big model. Because of this he was dubbed “The Beauty Queen Killer”.


His taste for sexual torture and perverted gratification quickly put him on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list in the spring of 1984 as he moved across state lines, abducting young women from mall after mall. The long line of victims would be unknown when all is said and done. The brave women who fought to survive have memories that will never go away of their time with him. The families of the victims he murdered may never have peace. His family, friends and even investigators will have to live with the knowledge that this monster slipped through the cracks and was able to carry on his deviant ways for years without capture.


The incredibly twisted story of Christopher Wilder came to an end when he was shot trying to evade capture on Friday, April 13,1984 in New Hampshire. He may be gone, but certainly will never be forgotten.
