Listen: Joe Fiorella, Murder, Joseph discussed on The First Degree
"They we experienced a high number of homicide in violence so three years after actor Joe Fiorella took part in the murder of police paler his brother Anthony Fiorella murdered somebody in public in in this in the next town over and I was baffled because it was a super or violent horrific crime and it happened three years after his brother had committed this crime and I was just at a loss where you'd have two sons commit really horrific murders within three years of each other back to I mean it's the only two boys it's the only two sons this woman has <hes> and I was floored when I found it because I was just looking at newspaper archives with the Fiorella name and released at least parlor in this became another super high profile case in the area area probably because it's the brother of a but I was the numbers there are crazy and Joseph was the mastermind he was the youngest asked he meant all these kids how to a role in this. You think with three people getting together to do something. Somebody had to have been the instigator to kind of pressure test to see where everybody was. Can we get these guys on board. If I say like it's it's it happens in stages. The plan like this and you're looking for you can't we. We don't WanNa think as people that there are three people that are completely evil. They're going to try to this we want. I don't think that there's one person that's evil and then there's that he's able to convince to other people to go along with. It and I see where you're going Alexis where you're saying that was there something often the chemistry of this family with these two brothers <hes> it doesn't happen often that two brothers will actually commit murder okay so given the sort of the the width and breadth of this case are first Serie Melanie. It's like how did being within very very close proximity to these people affect just like her outlook. Uh She's a teacher now and in school is where these people met match. She watched children at the time they were peers but do this to one another. It's it's very crazy as an adult probably think about yeah of course like on what happened to us now. Oh later in life I when I can't I can't even imagine like the reality of what they were planning in that. They actually actually did it. Also I just I think about her family and and how she just lives fifteen years and and at the end it was just such a horrible end and and I think about her mom because at the end she was calling for her mom and that must have broken her heart. I think about how scary that must have been for her because I understand what she must have gone through that night when I couldn't have understood that when I was fifteen I think it opened my eyes of these horrible. Things really could happen. It wasn't justice Louise in script where you tell yourself. It's not true so you can go sleep without any nightmares. I think this is really what started me being fascinated aided by how people can go in a completely different direction as far as having just basic empathy for people how people can go in in a completely different direction and become you know criminals or serial killers and I think that my curiosity about like the human mind and being patrice about true crime really started with this horrible event that happens at my high school. There's a small shrine and the Eucalyptus Grove where fifteen year old elise Paler was murdered heard several photos of her occur grandmother some Begonias and irises and a wooden cross tacked on a sapling aside from his modest memorial. There's there's nothing to indicate. This was a scene of extreme violence. The pillars started a nonprofit in his honor to help spread awareness about misogynistic lyrics in popular culture all right so I know that was a really intense case and especially if you've been listening to this at night right. I'm sure you WANNA feel super safe and secure in your home as you try to sleep tonight and I'm going to because of A._D._T..."
