Episode 25: Danny Rolling: Part 1

EDanny Rolling, having been groomed as a menace to society from years of abuse at the hands of his father, would go on to murder five college students in Gainesville over a four-day period, causing students to flee the campus in terror and leaving a sleepy college town paralyzed. He mutilated the bodies, posed with them, and even dismembered some of them. After his capture from a botched robbery on September 8th, 1990, it would take another two years to link Rolling, who would become known as the Gainesville Ripper, to these murders. He would later be linked by DNA to the murders of three members of the Grissom family in his hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana. He would be charged and plead guilty to five murders, earning himself five death sentences. Rolling was executed by lethal injection at Florida State Prison on October 25th, 2006. In Part 1, Melanie takes you through Danny's childhood and early adulthood, his struggles with his mental health as well as his numerous run-ins with the law before he committed his first series of murders in Shreveport.Check out the Mask of Sanity Instagram (@maskofsanitythepodcast) and Twitter (@masksanitypod) for more updates on upcoming episodes.

Episode 24: Derrick Todd Lee

EDerrick Todd Lee, known as the Baton Rouge Serial Killer, stalked women. He watched them through the windows of their homes, where they felt safe. When the moment was right, he would either sneak in through an open window or charm his way into their homes by flashing his million-dollar smile and then forcing himself inside before he would assault and murder them. Lee crept under the radar as a suspect for over a decade as the Baton Rouge law enforcement community tried to solve these murders, despite years of building a rap sheet with countless other crimes including burglary and stalking. With the advancements of DNA technology, Lee would be linked to the murders of at least seven unsolved murders.

Episode 21: Herbert Mullin

EHerbert Mullin had everything going for him - he was smart, popular, and athletic. But when his best friend was killed in a car accident the summer after graduating high school, Mullin began to spiral. This traumatic incident is what many believe triggered his schizophrenia, which was then exacerbated by LSD and marijuana use. Mullin began hearing voices, including one from his father, telling him to kill because human sacrifices would be the only way to prevent a massive earthquake from devastating California. He would murder 13 people before he was eventually caught.Check out the Mask of Sanity Instagram (@maskofsanitythepodcast) and Twitter (@masksanitypod) for more updates on upcoming episodes.

Episode 20: Charles Schmid

ECharles Schmid was known as many things - a trickster, a liar, an egomaniac. He never worked and instead he survived off of handouts from his parents. He also thought himself to be quite the womanizer. Yet, standing at just 5 feet 3 inches tall, Schmid fit the colloquial idea of the “Napoleon Complex,” making up for his feelings of inferiority due to his height with boisterous, outrageous claims. One night he was on such a roll that he claimed he wanted to kill a girl. It wouldn’t be long until Schmid boasted about murdering 3 young girls and police would finally catch the Pied Piper of Tucson.

EDorothea Puente looked like the kind, neighborly grandmother anyone would want to live next door. The woman who had suffered through an abusive childhood was now in the business of helping those in the community who needed it. But what her neighbors didn’t know is that she was murdering tenants in her boarding house and then continuing to cash their social security checks. Eventually, she would be caught and charged with the murders of nine people and sentenced to a life behind bars.

Seinfeld also pokes fun of him in an episode when Elaine tries to convince her boyfriend to change his name from Joel Rifkin to...anything else - revenge is sweet.

Episode 18: Graham Young

EGraham Young, also known as The Teacup Poisoner, began his life with tragedy with his mother dying when he was just three months old. He would spend his early years with his aunt and uncle, forming a strong bond with them, only to have his life turned upside down when his father remarried and brought his children back home. From there, Graham became withdrawn and focused all his attention on learning as much as he could about science and chemistry, especially poisons and how they worked. He would soon begin testing his concoctions...on the people around him. By the time he was 14, he was arrested and sent to Broadmoor psychiatric hospital after he confessed to poisoning his father, sister, and a classmate. He also confessed to killing his stepmother by poisoning but because her body was cremated, there was no evidence to convict. Young would spend the next almost nine years before he’d be released back into society with deadly consequences.Check out the Mask of Sanity Instagram (@m...

Episode 21: Herbert Mullin

EHerbert Mullin had everything going for him - he was smart, popular, and athletic. But when his best friend was killed in a car accident the summer after graduating high school, Mullin began to spiral. This traumatic incident is what many believe triggered his schizophrenia, which was then exacerbated by LSD and marijuana use. Mullin began hearing voices, including one from his father, telling him to kill because human sacrifices would be the only way to prevent a massive earthquake from devastating California. He would murder 13 people before he was eventually caught.Check out the Mask of Sanity Instagram (@maskofsanitythepodcast) and Twitter (@masksanitypod) for more updates on upcoming episodes.

Episode 20: Charles Schmid

ECharles Schmid was known as many things - a trickster, a liar, an egomaniac. He never worked and instead he survived off of handouts from his parents. He also thought himself to be quite the womanizer. Yet, standing at just 5 feet 3 inches tall, Schmid fit the colloquial idea of the “Napoleon Complex,” making up for his feelings of inferiority due to his height with boisterous, outrageous claims. One night he was on such a roll that he claimed he wanted to kill a girl. It wouldn’t be long until Schmid boasted about murdering 3 young girls and police would finally catch the Pied Piper of Tucson.

Episode 19: Dorothea Puente

EDorothea Puente looked like the kind, neighborly grandmother anyone would want to live next door. The woman who had suffered through an abusive childhood was now in the business of helping those in the community who needed it. But what her neighbors didn’t know is that she was murdering tenants in her boarding house and then continuing to cash their social security checks. Eventually, she would be caught and charged with the murders of nine people and sentenced to a life behind bars. Until the day she died, Dorothea Puente insisted that she was innocent and that her murder victims died of natural causes.Check out the Mask of Sanity Instagram (@maskofsanitythepodcast) and Twitter (@masksanitypod) for more updates on upcoming episodes.

Patreon Exclusive: Joel Rifkin

EHere it is, friends! As a gift to all my listeners, I am releasing my second full-length Bonus Patreon episode covering the case of Joel Rifkin. He brutally murdered 17 women on Long Island and throughout the New York City area from 1989 to 1993. Seinfeld also pokes fun of him in an episode when Elaine tries to convince her boyfriend to change his name from Joel Rifkin to...anything else - revenge is sweet.

Episode 18: Graham Young

EGraham Young, also known as The Teacup Poisoner, began his life with tragedy with his mother dying when he was just three months old. He would spend his early years with his aunt and uncle, forming a strong bond with them, only to have his life turned upside down when his father remarried and brought his children back home. From there, Graham became withdrawn and focused all his attention on learning as much as he could about science and chemistry, especially poisons and how they worked. He would soon begin testing his concoctions...on the people around him. By the time he was 14, he was arrested and sent to Broadmoor psychiatric hospital after he confessed to poisoning his father, sister, and a classmate. He also confessed to killing his stepmother by poisoning but because her body was cremated, there was no evidence to convict. Young would spend the next almost nine years before he’d be released back into society with deadly consequences.Check out the Mask of Sanity Instagram (@m...
