243: Serial Killer: Gainesville Ripper
In late August 1990, Gainesville, Florida fell victim to a serial killer. Over the span of less than a week, five college students were brutally murdered in their homes. Police couldn’t figure out who was behind the gruesome attacks and the Gainesville community was absolutely terrified. Doors were triple locked and roommates were sleeping in shifts. A suspect was jailed, but the DNA didn’t match. Meanwhile, a man was jailed in Ocala, Florida, the suspect of multiple armed robberies. Two completely different types of crimes, and no one suspected that that robberies and the murders were committed by the same person. To their suprise, they were wrong, and the man responsible for the Gainesville murders and countless armed robberies, was actually already in prison. Unbeknownst to detectives though, Danny Rolling’s murders in Gainesville weren’t his first. Rolling had killed before he’d even entered the state of Florida, annihilating an entire family, all before he was fearfully dubbed the Gainesville Ripper.
