Episode 027: Fred and Rosemary West, Part 4on April 29, 2011 in Podcast Episodes, Serial Killers by Brian Combs
For the last three weeks, we have explored the origins of Fred West, a sadistic pedophile and rapist. During this time, he killed at least one woman, and likely many more. He also liked to seduce or rape young girls. Either was fine with him, really. And dismembering the bodies, yeah, that was fun too.
The poets say we all have a soul mate, a person that compliments us perfectly. That person who, as Jerry McGuire said, completes us. For Fred, that person was Rosemary.
