EP219: Killing Just for Fun
John Alexander Lawson was born in 1976, and seemed to have a relatively normal upbringing in Clemmons, North Carolina...or at least there seemed to be nothing to indicate why John, at the age of 24 years old, seemed to radically change his personality and his name. He became Pazuzu Algarad. His name was inspired by "The Exorcist" and he claimed his mother was a Satanist (she wasn't). He didn't shower but once a year, and his house became a party house for many people but not for his victims--it was hell on Earth.
