What a Creep: “The Gainesville Ripper”

Season 13, Episode 3

Danny Rolling, the inspiration for Scream’s “Ghostface” 

 

Did you know that the movie SCREAM was inspired by a true crime? We didn’t. Danny Rolling, the Gainesville Ripper, murdered five students in Gainesville, Fla., in August 1990, which all but shut down the college town. And it turned out he had murdered before but didn’t get caught until years later. This is a rough one y’all. 

Trigger warnings including child abuse, rape, mutilation, and decapitation
