The New York Ripper and the butcher of Times square member that mobile story. I am so glad that you're reading this, because I almost did this for an episode recently, really getting that you did it a tidy but doesn't count if we do not live in that. Never air, absolutely not. If we don't remember- and we did a bunch of work on it and that's all our story is that weak the week you guys we're so then it's the moment is now in a moment is not tried. The time is not fucking.

Yes, so we have, we ve done Richard Cunningham, but only for whatever it is eaten alive able in New York, which we don't record those ones. For the same reason, I'm glad to hear that, because I have that whole one written out an almost did recently. I mean at some point, we're gonna have to go back to your unjust. Do all the ones the other person did, but you can't use their notes at all. Now you can. You can't mention anything managed to get really did a deep diatribe. Ok, listen called std end and may be broke up, a marriage greetings. I went to college at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville from two thousand and two to two thousand and six years before:
the town was known only for white nationalism and, having quote very good people on both sides owner who is there? We weren't that worried about white nationalism, but we were very worried about a serial rapist who had been assaulting young women in Charlottesville since nineteen ninety seven, while every female students at uv was very aware of the serious rapists the police visited our norms and told us to be vigilant, and there was a quote safe ride programme set up to help students avoid walking alone. I of course ignored all this advice. So one night after a football game, I decided to walk to a party alone. I nearly jumped out of my skin when the carefully manicured shrubs lighting the street I was walking on, began shaking Lee. I quicken my pace but the shaking continued, and then I heard a low le loud mon, this man, was followed by another, more angry grown and then a large man lurched out of the bushes directly and my path. I was for
to defend myself and even began to assume some type of karate style stance that felt natural, but probably look ridiculous, but instead of asking me the man simply collapse under the sidewalk at my feet. His a phone and while it still out of his coat and that's when I had the chance to analyze his attire wrinkled. Oxford shirt, dirty khakis, uv baseball cap. This was not the cereal rapists, but a very drunk you ve alarm was pretty common for former students to come back a tenth of a games and try to party like they used to. He was a very, very hammered had scrapes Oliver his face a huge gash on his farm. He said, happened. I was about to offer him help when he began to hit on me to the extent that it possibly could and his condition didn't take long for my fear to transition to anger, especially when I saw his wedding ring. Oh I reached down and picked up his wallet planning on taking whatever cash. I found a paper a cab to the party. This was years refer Goober there was Ok, but I did find a hotel key card and looked at them When the driver's license. Let's say it was Tom Psmith called the whole
I'll phone number on the back. The key card and asked to be connected with the re register to Tom Smith. When a woman, presumably his wife answered, I asked hey, are you missing your husband and she, she and responded. Yes, I told her where he was well. He seriously began to cry and say please don't call my wife plea. Unless I men love our main vomited on the sidewalk. I assume she came down, picked him up did I now. I had no reason to be scared of random dues in the bushes, because the following year the cereal rapist was arrested, and I had are encountered him many many times he worked get the daily at a local grocery store Harris, Teeter yep I frequently asked him to cut my smoke. Turkey super thin thinner, I had made an readily it lots of times maybe weekly. I, like sandwiches,
defend yourself defenders up, he was a married father, Afore and his Emma was stocking women for weeks learning. Their travel patterns and then breaking into their homes, and they were gone and hiding for hours until they came home. You then surprise them usually bludgeon them unconscious, assault them and flee. He was finally, tat when one bad ass, lady, who had been assaulted, noticed the guy behind the daily counter, looks familiar and was acting super weird towards her Deutsche Telekom, cuts. Yes, I do, but I never walk along the night sky sexy and never trust a man with a cleaver Ricky. That is, I feel it That's why we all are interested in these stories in the first place, because it isn't em, it isn't a manner in the bush. Now I mean in that, in that way of you decide to fear verses. What is to be feared might like to watch out for guys hiding and bushes, but also watch out fur, but but it
a thing words. Those people hide in plain sight in those in that real, vague, bland way. Where you're like eyes, that's the guy was bossing around the grass or even think twice about him, who that's a crazy amazing story goes this way, because that way I mean all the way as the drunk. I really had it like a full cycle. Life experience in just in standing with that girl, but when I get a bit, but I don't think you're hitting on her roaring curl his wife and also almost my rob, but you didn't care in cash as our I'm, assuming that it's a woman is Ricky with Kate wriggling get because ridgy that idea of looking look, into his wallet. To get the information and taking care. Business was a very generous thing for her to go. It was very kind to a very drunk person and then so smart, so smart, then you and also then you just have that person's name, so they can try to come at you in any way. It's like back the fuck up, Tom's,
That seems like one of those things where, like later you like, I wish I had done ass. I should have done that she did it and you know I'll realtime, good job, Ricky, the gate and the flash ok. This underlines this one is my mother in law escapes murder twice over. Inclusive hello, so divergent my fiance as from Oregon Acre the Pacific Northwest a murder corner of the.

This is Mother Cindy, see why India growing up his mom Cindy narrowly escaped being more twice, so I'm lucky he's even here young, since

Now, God, no, one day a view bug stop to pick her up. She glanced at the driver, skinny like guy and thought he looks harmless and option. Ass soon ass. She was in the car with the door closed the driver lunged at her Cindy reached for the door handle to get the fuck out of their, but she was shocked to find. There was your side door handle dude, had removed it to create his own little murder mobile. She fighting him off when she felt the door open and someone grabber from behind. She thought: oh shit, there's two of them, but it turned out to be a friend of hers, saw he'd been driving by seeing her hitchhiking and circled around to pick her up, but when he saw the v w bug parked in the same spot, he stopped to check it out after a friend drag Cindy out of the car. The driver sped all my guide and euro, but she's gonna
This goes into a second story of escaping twice, but nowhere in that is mentioned that this was one thousand percent. The Taliban, the Emma or more frequently It was just a regular thing guys back now, and not always happen is I'm off. That was if she she that sounds like such a TED. Bundy experience right, ok those mountains or you would hide it. He would hide those women's body. Oh ok, It is also there the knight of the Oregon Museum, tavern shooting if you're not familiar on.

Ok, yeah yeah sacred is like you're but low, but thing ok, so damn that's me there ever so get out of there.
I did, however, stop going pilates, mainly because of scheduling issues. My mother has a habit of defending people, she hired for various tasks, and this guy was no exception. Apparently he cannot. He thought he and I had a connection, and he asked her for my number to go on a date which she then gave to him as rant. For another day, we went on one day in which we made awkward small talk and he showed off some of his culturally of appropriate of jewellery, which he had recently bought. There were zero chemistry, so the next time he asked mandate, I beg doubtless and trivial excuse and he didn't pursue it further. Recently my mom posts in an article ants on social media. That's a maniac who had attacked a seventeen year old man with a sickle, injuring him in the arms and hands and then engaged in a five hour stand off with police, after which they finally took him into custody.
