Angel Resendiz aka The Railroad Killer criss-crossed the US by freight train in the 80s and 90s, choosing his victims at random, before he was executed by the State of Texas in 2006. Before his death, Resendiz spoke to journalist Alex Hannaford and claimed, on tape, to have killed more than he had taken the blame for. The authorities said Angel Resendiz was lying in an attempt to delay his own death. But, haunted by the crackly interview tape, Alex is determined to investigate. Then a letter arrives from a woman serving life in prison for her husband’s murder — telling him that Resendiz once confessed to that killing too.

Customer Reviews

Interesting story, but sometimes repetitive and emphasis put on facts that seem questionable at best

The story is really interesting and I think the host has a great basis to do this research. It seems at times, however, he places emphasis on people and evidence suggesting Resendiz is guilty and brushing opposing suggestions to the side. I like investigative podcasts that consider both sides of the story and this seems pretty biased at times. The straw that broke the camels back between three and four stars for me was the interview with Louis’s sister Diane. I understand she is going to take her brothers side, but her description of the incident just seems incredibly vague. Additionally, I find it kind of suspicious there was some random “scrawny Mexican man” walking down the street mentioned by some stranger, but nobody else saw this individual nor did that person make a statement to police or anyone else. It was mentioned that Resendiz wouldn’t kill in a house with children... so did he change his methods and morals only for this incident? The problem with this account is that the host agrees with her description of the incident and brushes off any evidence to the contrary. Even when such does come up, he still says “oh well I still think he did it” but doesn’t give a good reason why. Like I mentioned, this is an interesting topic but hope the host can be a little less biased in future installments. If you set up the podcast saying “this is why he is guilty of more crimes” that is one thing, but this isn’t it boss.

Poor audio and the story moves like an epileptic snake.


I have zero complaints about this podcast. It’s highly intriguing!! Don’t sleep on this one
