Betty Lou Beets had a rough childhood, married young, and suffered physical abuse from a series of husbands. Husband number 5, Doyle Barker, seemingly vanished. Husband number 6, Jimmy Don Beets, disappeared on supposed fishing trip. It would take a few years but eventually police would start to look at Betty Lou.
Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss the facts around Texas Black Widow killer Betty Lou Beets. Was she acting in self-defense as she would later claim or did she murder for money? Betty Lou would gain supporters who felt she did not deserve to face the death penalty.
