The Serial Killer's Apprentice ////// 54 

TrueCrimeGarage.com 

In the early 80's, someone was killing little girls in northern Ohio. Between October 1981 and June of 1983 the bodies of three young girls had turned up. In the first case, 12 year old victim Tina Harmon was seen with a man in his early 20's shortly before she went missing. The next victim 11 year old Krista Harrison was abducted right in front of her friend. The friend described the kidnapper as a white man who looked to be about 25 to 35 years old. In 1983 police connected the crimes to a local serial rapist 43 year old Robert Buell. Robert quickly admits to the rapes of several grown women. He would claim his innocence regarding the deaths of the young girls for the next 18 years, including his last words before his execution. Tonight we are joined again by long time garage friend James Renner to discuss the possiblity of the second killer theory known as the serial killer's apprentice.

    Love the cut of your jib guys! So I was listening to the podcast yesterday and told my mom about it. We are from a town right outside of Doylestown, I asked if she remembered it and she said yes. She then goes on to tell me a story about her and my father having a first hand encounter with Buell. My mother used to work at the local ACE Hardware where Buell bought the Tape, Rope and Extension Cords. Guess who the cashier was when the items were bought? My Mother! She said when the news came out that he was arrested it made her sick to her stomach knowing he purchased the items from her. Also my father worked at the local Sparkle Market as a meat cutter, Buell frequented and ordered meat from my father on numerous occasions! Thanks for always having amazing episodes! P.S.- If you ever find yourselves in the Akron Area you need to get a few beers at R. Shea Brewing https://rsheabrewing.com/
