Episode 01: TRUE CRIME- James “Red” Hall

If you knew what was good for you, you wouldn’t be picking up hitchhikers. There have been an estimated 500 hitchhiking murders on the interstate since 1979 (https://wandrlymagazine.com/article/hitchhiking/). Imagine a more safe time though, suppose the 1940’s. Would you consider picking up a hitchhiker then? Well, if you answered yes, then you would’ve been at risk of picking up one of the deadliest murderers that Arkansas has ever produced. In this episode of Unnatural Acts in the Natural State, Trey Youngdahl explores the deadly history of James “Red” Hall, The Hitchhike Killer.
