On this week’s episode I tell Russ all about the case of the Gainesville Ripper. Danny Rolling was a serial killer who caused mass hysteria on the University of Florida college campus. He murdered multiple students in a matter of 72 hours. His crimes even inspired the revitalization of the slasher movie genre in the 90s! Moral of this story.... the truth isn’t just stranger but it's more horrific and disturbing than fiction.
