This episode we discuss how 17 year old William Heirens escalated from burglary to murder, and left notes that led to him being called "The Lipstick Killer". He tried to blame the crimes on another personality named George, but had no diagnosis or evidence to back that up, so he ended up being the longest serving prisoner in his state's history.
