Extra! Extra! We got together to record a short-shot follow-up about our experience talking to podcaster and author Mike Morford last week, and it ended up being a bit longer than we anticipated so here’s a rare full-length bonus episode from The Mugly Truth Podcast for your listening pleasure! Check out the links and clarifications below for more details about what we discuss:
- The 77 year old man back in jail after being released from prison because he was deemed “too old” to be a threat is named Albert Flick. He was originally served 25 years for fatally stabbing his wife 14 times in front of their daughter in 1979. After he was released he went back to jail for assaulting a woman in 2010 but released in 2014 because the judge felt a longer sentence was unnecessary due to his age. Flick then became infatuated with Kimberly Dobbie and stabbed her 11 times in front of her twins in 2018. Click here for more details,
- Kris discusses the timeline of Joseph DeAngelo, known as the Golden State Killer, citing his last believed murder as the same year of the birth of one of his daughters. DeAngelo does have three daughters. His first daughter was born in September 1981, his second daughter was born in November 1986 (a few months after Janelle Cruz was murdered in Irvine, CA), and his third daughter was born in May 1989. Click here for more details.
- Dennis Rader, the BTK (Bind, Torture, Kill) serial murderer, was convicted of 10 murders. His last known victim, Dolores E. Davis, was killed on January 19, 1991. In 2004 Rader resumed communicating with police which ultimately led to his arrest in 2005. While there is no definitive answer as to why serial killers like Rader may stop murdering, this article looks into why Rader may have gone on hiatus, and how his narcissistic/pathological tendencies led to his capture.
- The Netflix show “Exhibit A” can be found here.
- The award-winning 2018 documentary Kris mentions, “Three Identical Strangers”, (directed by Tim Wardlewhich) examines the lives of three identical brothers: Edward Galland, David Kellman and Robert Shafran, born to an unwed teenage mother in 1961, and adopted out from an agency at 6 months old. None of the adoptive families knew about the siblings, and the boys knew nothing of each other until a coincidence (or was it?) brought them together in college at the age of 19. The boys were actually a set of quadruplets, but the fourth brother died at birth. For more information about the documentary, please click here. The documentary is currently available on Hulu.
