From an early age Angelo Bono junior disliked his mother she was promiscuous and he didn't trust her. It's possible. This opinion was aside effective is parents divorce which happened before Angelo. Isn't school born in Rochester New York young Angelo moved West with his mother Jenny, after the divorce eventually landing in Los Angeles sometime around nineteen forty while worked diligently to support her two children being a single mother was tough for her and her kids and without the. Presence of a father figure Angelo junior never got to experience a traditional sense of familial stability overtime Angeles resentment of his mother grew he told friends that Jenny frequently made him wait outside unfamiliar buildings while she had sex with various men. I, she gave up on her marriage to his father. Now, Jenny showed her true nature at least. That's what Angelo thought, and there's little doubt that this warped perspective brought on by early trauma impacted how he viewed. All the women in his life Vanessa is going to take over in the psychology here, and throughout the episode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or a psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for this show. Thanks Greg according to the National Child Traumatic Stress Network? Potentially traumatic events for children include witnessing domestic abuse, sexual abuse assault, or simply experiencing neglect while different for everyone, the effects of childhood trauma can manifest themselves in difficult. Behavior, as a child gets older in two thousand, fifteen joint release with the substance abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. The NC. tsn stated that trauma is a risk factor for nearly all behavioral health and substance use disorders untreated. It's result in increased involvement with juvenile justice systems middle and high school age students might also engage in risky sexual behavior. If as he claimed Angelo was dragged along at his mother's sexual dalliances, it would have been undoubtedly traumatic. That trauma manifested itself as Angelo. Got Older. By the time he was fourteen. He regularly called his mother derogatory names to her face in front of horrified friends. He described violent rape fantasies and at sixteen, he dropped out of high school and spent his time engaged in various criminal activities. Eventually, a conviction for grand theft auto earned him a stint at a juvenile detention center during this time Angelo heard stories about. Carol Chessmen also known as The red light bandit undercover of darkness chessmen used a fake police siren just startled unsuspecting couples in parked cars armed with a gun. He then sexually assaulted the women in the cars. Chessmen was convicted of kidnapping and rape in nineteen, forty, eight and sentenced to death but Angelo didn't care the criminal was his newest hero but he thought chessmen made one glaring mistake according to author Darcy. O'Brien in his book, the Hillside Strangler Angelo believe chessmen biggest failing was that he didn't kill his victims which left witnesses to testify against him. Learning from his mistake Angelo was determined to leave behind no traces of his transgressions. One turn behind bars was more than enough for him and he'd do whatever it took to avoid a repeat visit but the system wasn't the only thing. Angelo knew how to play He. was also a ladies man who always got his way Angelo called himself the Italian stallion and Ammash to a Sicilian heritage and it was a moniker lived up to in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six, he fathered two sons to two different women. He also married both of them without ever going through a divorce a Catholic Angelo claim that the first marriage was illegitimate as it was officiated by a Protestant minister. That wife might well of breathed a sigh of relief had she known what kind of husband Angelo was he was controlling abusive and violent his second wife Mary. Katherine who went by Candy had the misfortune of bearing five of Angelo's children as well as the brunt of his abuse. Perhaps his most shocking display violence was when he reportedly raped candy in the living room in front of their children in nineteen sixty four soon after the brutal attack candy. Filed for divorce Angelo was ordered to pay one hundred fifty dollars a month in child support for their five kids about one thousand, two, hundred, fifty dollars in today's money however, Angelo avoided payment by tweaking the spelling of his last name desperate for Financial Support Candy attempted to reconcile with her ex in response Angelo drove her to a secluded spot in the Los Angeles Hills told her to get out of the car and pointed a gun at her. Fortunately, for candy, he never fired his weapon and the to manage to coexist and Co parent in the same city by the next year in nineteen sixty, five, thirty, one year old Angelo was in the arms of twenty five year old Nannette. Campina who already had a daughter and son from a previous marriage despite a new woman in his life Angelo's propensity for domestic violence remained he abused net just as violently as he had candy. But this time his lover wasn't the only one being abused. The net was terrified that Angela would rape her teenage daughter who he said needed quote breaking in it's unclear if he ever carried out this threat but it haunted net. Unbearable years under Angelo's thumb, she gathered the courage to take her children and flee the relationship. By one thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, five, forty, one year old Dangelo was living on his own from his home. He ran a car upholstery business and was happy to be free of the annoyances of lovers, family and roommates. But in January of Nineteen, seventy, six, a knock on the door changed Angelo's life forever Angeles cousin twenty four year. Old Kenny Bianchi showed up looking for a place to crash the pair barely knew each other the last time. They. Were together. Angelo was still married to candy and Kenny was Aram bumptious child like Angelo Kenny was born in Rochester New York. But unlike his cousin Kenny's birth mother was a sex worker who gave him up for adoption of fact, he never forgot Kennedy's adoptive Father Nicholas was a gambler and his adoptive mother Francis was extremely overbearing the doting mother was proud. As Kenny, proved to have an above average I q but as Darcy O'Brien writes Francis. Coping with a compulsive liar and his childhood unfolded as one of idleness by Kenny's fifth, Birthday Francis noticed her son experiencing strange fits which doctor diagnosed as Petty Mal seizures according to the Harvard Health Publishing Petty Mao seizures, seizures of up to thirty seconds or less children experiencing them become unaware of what is happening but they're so short that fifty to one hundred seizures can happen in a single day without anyone noticing generally these episodes articles for great concern as most children grow out of them but they can lead to a difficulty concentrating which might have interfered with Kenny's ability to succeed in school. Concerned for her son Francis told Kenny to see a child psychologist. The doctor didn't seem to think that the seizures were a big issue and while we can't speculate on what exactly was said during their meeting, we do know that Francis tarn down the psychologist suggestion that both she and Kenny should seek. It seemed apparent to the doctor that Francis loomed too large in Kennedy's life. A two thousand, fifteen study out of University College London showed that people who felt their parents were over present in their lives tended to have lower rates of happiness and well-being. One expert said, psychological control can limit a child's independence and leave them less able to regulate their own behavior while we obviously can't blame Kenny's adulthood violence on an overbearing parent. It's possible that Francis has behavior had a negative impact on her son's development. She certainly expressed her high expectations for him in unhealthy ways when Kenny was just fourteen, his adoptive father passed away rather than allowing the vulnerable adolescent to grieve. At his own pace Francis Forced Kenny to wear Nicholas's shoes to the funeral to Francis time for Kenny to become a man and quite literally step into his father's shoes unsurprisingly with his domineering mother as his lone female influence Kenny's opinion of women was less-than-stellar that said, he found young love at at eighteen married his sweetheart Brenda Beck. But it wasn't a happy marriage kenny question Brenda's virginity and loyalty and was extremely jealous. He couldn't stand the fact that Brenda was a nurse who worked closely with other men under the strain of issues. The marriage collapsed a few months after it began. Just like his cousin, Kenny had issues, trusting women and also displayed a troubling fascination with violence but he was twenty one kenny admitted to his girlfriend that he had taken a life but he didn't say who's the boast might have just been an odd way of showing off. But there was a series of murders in his hometown and it seems Kenny was a suspect between nineteen, seventy, one and nineteen, seventy three. Three young girls were sexually assaulted strangled and dumped on the side of the road still unsolved their deaths were known as the alphabet murders or the double initial murderers despite his disturbing claims, his girlfriend figured Kenny was all talk and thought nothing more of it. She knew him as a sweet romantic sort of guy and didn't believe he could really kill anyone still Kenny's penchant for romance notwithstanding the relationship fizzled out. And, before long he was onto the next, both Kenny and Angelo were incredibly popular with women though they employed different tactics to draw them in while Kenny was overly romantic Angelo was cruel and demeaning, which sometimes worked but they both held equally low opinions of women particularly of their ability to remain faithful. The only thing worse than an unfaithful woman they felt was one who had the gall to leave on her. Own Terms. So when Kenny's latest girlfriend Susan more rejected his marriage proposal, the twenty four year old was destroyed sure. He'd been juggling girls on the side, but he thought he was more than enough for Susan to handle but Susan must frustrated with his constant lies and aimless career path. So she ended things wounded. Kenny. decided to make the move to Sunny California determined to make something of himself one way or another. Up Next, Angelo and Kenny discover their shared dark impulses.

He had a stable job and apartment and his own car young girls paid more attention and soon enough Kenny was juggling relationships just like Angelo. while. Kenny was learning the ways of a low thorough from his cousin. He felt there was something missing from his life something real sure Los Angeles. Ladies were sunkissed and beautiful but they didn't hold a candle to his ex girlfriend Susan more to Kenny. Susan was a woman of Virtue and value unlike the promiscuous he could easily bed. So he pressed her to visit Kenny promise that he was changed he was ready to be. The reliable family man she could probably call her husband. But when she arrived, it didn't take long for Susan deceit through Kenny's veneer of respectability. He hadn't changed at all and she went home to New York leaving. Kenny. Broken once more by January of Nineteen, seventy seven however Kenny's heart was on the mend while at the California title company. Can he wooed CO worker Kelly Boyd? She moved in with him and was soon pregnant when She told him the News Kenny propose to Kelly, but she turned him down just like Susan Kelly loved the imaginative romantic sight of him but she knew bed Kenny Bianchi. Wasn't husband material Kelly had a point at home Kenny constantly pick bites at work. He was hardly professional in fact, he was fired for bringing marijuana to the office although Kenny manage to find another position at the steward West Coast title company he was eager for. An additional income source when he mentioned this to Angelo, his cousin suggested that they recruit girls for sex work. Immediately, Kenny had the perfect girl in mind sixteen year old Sabra Hanan met Kenny at a party she was blonde beautiful and just move to La to pursue modeling eager to impress Kenny lied about having contacts in the industry and gave her his number a few weeks later, his phone rang and the cousins set their trap. Wanting to make Sabra field special, they offered to pay for a motel room for the teenager. But before she went to bed, they gave her a drink laced with sedative when Sabra passed out, Kenny started sexually assaulting her but backed off when she stirred and objected the men were sure that doing so would earn the Girls Trust from the Motel Angelo and Kenny insisted that Sabra move into Angelo spare bedroom they gave her money for new clothes and took her. Out For meals, but forbade her from leaving the apartment or seeing anybody without their permission up until this point, it seems Sabra didn't fear the pair. So one afternoon, she decided to take a harmless shopping trip to the mall. But when she returned home Angelo Kenny to beat her as punishment then they took turns raping her fearing for her life Sabra acquiesced to their demands that she forget modeling and become a sex worker at first Angelo used nude polaroid's. Of Sabra. To entice his car upholstery customers into trying her out. But as worried about Sabra got around, it attracted new customers for his legitimate business. For Angelo it was a win win situation and he was determined to maintain this new status quo to make sure she wouldn't try to escape. Angelo told Sabra that he had connections in the Mafia who would hunter down additionally to encourage your compliance the men promised to let her go if she worked for a year but one. Girl under his roof wasn't enough to satisfy Angelo and enjoy the particular attention of a high school student named Antoinette. Lombardo Antoinette remained steadfast in her devotion to Angelo convinced. He would marry her as for Angelo. He was certain that he and Kenny needed to expand their business beyond Sabra. So he told onto net that she needed to have sex with other men to prove her love if she didn't enjoy it, then Angela would know she was faithful enough to marry. They arranged for the two girls to work in orgy with the guests included a police chief and a city councilman when the event was over Angelo accused Antoinette of enjoying the sex and made it clear. He wouldn't marry her though it wasn't the outcome Antoinette wanted the orgy proved Angelo and Kenny that they needed more girls according to Darcy O'Brien in the hillside stranglers they told Sabra that if she could recruit another girl, she could go free otherwise she had another Ten months to go on her contract.

She was too terrified to run away and return to Los Angeles with fifteen year old becky spears with that sixteen year. Old Sabra went from victim to victim recruiter while it might be difficult to imagine bringing a friend into such an abusive and violent situation victims have been known to recruit. Out of fear desperation and manipulation forensic psychologist Dr Darryl Turner argues that a recruiter rush. Bringing in new victims because it feels like more of a legitimate job and makes them feel less alone. Looking for a life raft, Sabra gave into her abusers and found someone weaker and more vulnerable to take her place despite their promise the men refused to that soccer go she was their most experienced girl and they needed her however they did reward her by moving her from the spare bedroom into an apartment away from Angelo's daily abuse and violence bad treatment. Now, filter their new prisoner becky around this time Angelo and. Kenny started to liaise with a call girl service to act as an intermediary it lent their outfit in air of professionalism and gave them access to an extensive client list in August of Nineteen, seventy, seven in the new partnership, Becky was sent to the Bel Air, home of David would desperate for help the young summoned the courage to tell the successful lawyer about the abuse she suffered and that she wasn't there by choice. Appalled by the Tail David Sprang into action. He drove Becky to his office and arranged a flight home for the teen. He also assured the young girl not to worry about any repercussions. He was confident that the two cousins had no real connections to the Mafia knowing the crime family wouldn't operate out of an upholstery shop in Los Angeles suburb when Angelo and Kenny realized that Becky was gone they were furious Angela Harass. David at his home and office but he stopped when David sent one of his most intimidating. Clients a large bouncer with hells angels connections to scare Angelo off meanwhile Sabra realized that escape was possible though her captors tried to intimidate her into staying she saw through their flimsy ruse two months after Becky Ran Sabra made her own successful bid for freedom incensed that their scheme was crumbling Angelo and Kenny sought an outlet for their anger it was around then they started talking seriously about killing someone it was something they discussed before as they shared a fascination with murder but now fuel by their rage they felt Ready to take the plunge discussing their potential first victim Angelo in Kenny agreed that it would be a woman and that she should be a sex worker that way disappearance would cost less of a stir. As they ruminated, they were determined to get their old scheme running again. So they found a girl named Jennifer Snyder to replace Becky and Sabra and purchased a trick list of potential clients from a local sex worker Deborah Noble when Deborah arrived at his Glendale Home Angeles Trust that he only wanted in out call. List were customers requested that the girls go to them he didn't want random John's coming to US home. Depot promised that are black book was just that and took his money. But when Angelo and Kenny realized that Deborah had sold them a list of in call clients, they were apoplectic to them. Deborah's con was yet another example of why women were not to be trusted.

Highly, controlled environment where the victim is tortured and killed, and finally a site where the victim is quickly dumped. Thrill killers are often attractive intelligent, charismatic psychopathic personalities relying on their charm to seduce and lure their victims to their deaths that description early matches everything we now know about Angelo Bono, junior, and Kenny Bianchi unfortunately at the time investigators are only just starting to piece things together and the killer cousins were hitting their stride.
