Gaskins con jim into mailing him fifty feet of wire that he used to detonate the bomb. That blew off timers head mortified at his unwitting involvement in the murder denied from ever communicating with we again and concern for his family. Jim ditched the book. He was writing about pee. Wee and the family moved from south carolina for a fresh start as the baby's began this new phase of their lives. We sat on death row. Awaiting his fate was proponents of the death penalty. Believe it or not accept his own and when that first bolt hit him she jumped out of her seat screen grand slow but the grand yes. There's nobody's fran from iheartradio at doghouse pictures.

Jim was nearly finished with the manuscript about the life and times of pee wee gaskins when he heard the shocking news about peewee spinal murder. I learn from the newspaper era. That few we gaskins had committed this murder of rudolph tyner and quite frankly. My first thought was wow. There goes my manuscript. I somehow always wanted to see some good or something worthwhile and yaskin's himself and i spent so many hours winning finding out that there were human traits that no long ever mentioned are ever talked about so when i heard what had happened i realized our never get to visit him again. jim was barred from visiting the prison for a second time in his life.

Pee Wee and Me

"Jim beattie new. As much as anyone could about south carolina's most notorious mass murderer and he was hopeful. His book peewee in me would be a full account of the meanest man in america. He was writing the novel that aimed towards redemption. It wasn't going to be like in cold blood a book. Jim taught on occasion. That was too sordid for jim. Storytelling approach. Jim was optimistic. That he could share some characteristics appear we that people often didn't see like honesty and compassion but in reality peewee rarely showed these traits in fact we told them this much during their interviews together. That's say would you ever lied to me thinking you know we'll but we're all friends he's not going to lie to me. I need a lot of me. And he thought for seconds and he looked right at me and said yes. I would say pretty we. You would lie to me when he said without hesitating half the time

"In crimes. Initially like my guesses. They didn't happen like an impulse relaxing. But they triggered something in pee. Wee's mind like this guy or this man or this child is is going to go down and so the plans started to churn in his mind and i feel at that point been there was no coming back from him like i. Would you know whether questions i would love to ask. Peewee. if he was still alive was hey. Did anybody walk away from betraying jawing from you. You know i mean. I think there's a couple out there that maybe he just never had a chance to get to but if he was ever able to walk back that impulsive thought that he ultimately normally acted on. There was probably a point of pride for him not to do that. Which makes more or maybe even that code is well been like you know. This is part of the code and now and this has to happen now and maybe same with other criminal like you have to set an example right like if i let this guy go and do this. What is everybody else gonna do to me. I think that's a common theme and a lot of criminal organizations. I want to give a quick example of the kinds of things that associate may be john about just so we. We have a picture. Here you you speak to someone. They market o'shea who tells a story about one like one of the schemes. Basically that he had come up with so for a time he will be working at a tobacco plantation or tobacco field and he and usually in associate would like clear all the tobacco that was stored up in a farm that had been cultivated. They cleared out of the or like take away basically to go sell it to somebody else right correct. And then they'd set the barn on fire. Correct they would make the money off of that crop but then the insurance company would pay the plantation owner the tobacco owner for that crop so it he basically doubled the money in the value of that tobacco by stealing it in an arson So you know. He's got an associate working with him on that. So if that associate goes john at a local la- same bar or something telling people about it. Then he's implicated in a serious crime so it's just a just want to give you an example there. Are there any other examples of town of the schemes that he would get up to yet. And let's use an example one of the murders. Because i think it's an hour into the names of the murder so the audience can enjoy him. But there's one murder that comes up where he basically because somebody's asked him to do a hit or at least a quiet. Somebody is a better way to put it but it turns into a murder and he brings these people with him makes them look at the dead body and basically says to him. You are now in accessory and if you go john's anybody else you're going first of all kill you. Let me just start with that. But even if for some reason you get away from the clutches. And i get you know put down. You're going down with me. Which by the way ultimately happens. So yeah he. He's he's going to tie you up all of this matt. He he's going to tie you up. Man getting outs okay pee. Wee's web no good i would. That's very gritty sequel to charlotte's web. I think they peeve raise the matic charlotte was so loving. Nice to wilbur and peewee. Oh my goodness so right now. Just in full disclosure as we are recording this interview. I don't know how the story fully ends. We're not to the last episode yet so everybody you should know that jeff did not give us give us too many spoilers. So we're listening right along with you. As as the show comes out and one of the questions that i really wanted to ask you is what lessons do do. We hope people can take from this narrative. What what can this story tell us. How can because. When i listened to this one of the things that struck me is this is this is important. This is informative. People should know the full story right of something that for many people may have just been a headline rate in their local news. So what what do you think people can take from this show and how can knowing the full breadth of this story. a how can it help authorities. How educate the public going forward. I think one of jim's children. And i just can't remember who said it right now spoke to that specifically and jim was talking to his son about this. How there are so many people especially young people out in the world. You don't know what's going on with him. It could be homeless. it could be family life. It could be an. He used a specific words. I hope it comes to me out. Layers maybe the word. He used stronger than that. And were so used again specifically this past year with the pandemic being in our bubble our kids that are close to us are loving wife or husband or aunts and uncles grandmas and grandpas that are close and our friends that are connected to that but there are so many. there's so much more going on in the communities underneath what we see that the authorities deal with but again they've got their hands full with so much going on as well so i think it's important for us to understand and maybe keep an eye out for the outliers. The people need to be brought into the world of good health and good education. And just don't know there's so many lost lives guess. Ben is a good way to put it. they're so many lost lives. And i don't mean lost like they've been killed but lost his in their walking out in the world with no guides and no love and no hands to hold them and when that happens you have a much better chance to be killed or taken or kidnapped or whatever. The violent act may be and at this point as we said before we don't want to spoil the story. It is a journey that you should take for yourself. Don't take our word for it. Check it out yourself pee. Wee gaskins was not my friend created by jeff. Kaeding episodes are available now. we like. You can't wait to hear how it ends jeff. In the meantime. I thank you so much for coming on the show today. But in the meantime what other projects are you working on either as an individual or through doghouse pictures we. We'd love to learn more about your work. I've got two more podcasts. I'm developing now. One is a cold case and the other is an international murder. Which i'm so excited to explore. I've got a feature film that i'm developing called. Follow me which is based on a critically acclaimed short story of the same name by a wonderful author named paul griner. And it's the story about a female photographer who hires a private investigator to follow her. And take pictures. But when the gig wraps the pictures don't stop and become more and more invasive and intimate relationship of diving into kind of self exploration and this world of photography and really a visual medium that.

"With him and his wife at the time. I can't remember exactly which wife it was. I'm so sorry that i can't recall that right now. Jeff but a young woman who moves in with a very tiny child as super sick like the child is extremely sick but pewee ends up using his funds in his time and effort to nurse. That child like back to health and it's not his child. It's just a it's a another woman's child and to me. That is so strange in. It does make me wonder about if it's him doing something. Get all psychologists here doing something for another child. That maybe wasn't done for him. We're like a kindness shown to another child. That wasn't done for him but he's also a child killer so anyway. My brain is exploding thinking about all that. Don't even have a question here for you. It's hard it's hard to wrap your head around those stories. So that's a good example. There's other ones that will let the audience here within the podcast where he literally cares for babies or toddlers or young children but a lot of these people or young babies children become his victims. So it's really hard to wrap your head around all of this and again we're not in this world of this trailer park kingpin and this guy that was with people working in the traveling carnivals who i hear had transient lives to begin with and may not have the connection to family except for the people working in the carnivals themselves so it's hard to understand this sometimes mad it really is it is but i also think there's a lot of parallels in one of my first questions i mentioned i really see a connection between him and like the mafia like the code of omerta. You know your your family until the moment you break that code and then you're dead to me literally and figuratively And i it's a people really sick of hearing about it. But i you know the sopranos is one of my favorite shows and i think tony soprano is really interesting anti hero because he nurtured so many people while also on the other side ruining so many lives And he you know he will be this advocate for people until they cross in the wrong way and then he won't think twice because he feels justified in doing it because they broke the code And to me. That's that's what he's doing He's obviously a terrible person. But also has this. You know nurturing side He's a very complex character. I think you know and he needs to retain the power and authority and also avoid prison. So there's many things that peewee was constantly doing within these relationships that were important to him. I've got to maintain my power. If somebody knows about a crime that i've committed i am going to implicate them in that crime so that they become an accessory. He was brilliant. That okay fine. You're going to john about me. I'm gonna take you down with me. And so that was something that we constantly thinking about that plays into our unwitting accessory in our story and how pee wee on weaknesses of people use them to leverage things that he needed within his authority and within the power circles that he ruled so that was very important dole and how he used that behavior. I think you to that point that that is one of the primary explanations for how a person's criminal career like this could last so long you know he's in out of the system but he keeps slipping away. I do want to go back to the conversation. You and matt were having jeff. Because i think i think it raises an important points for storytelling. All as well which is maybe a little bit abstract but one thing that is always at the front of my mind when we're exploring a violent tales things of this nature on on our show and stuff there and what she knew is how to accurately depict a crime a criminal conspiracy without glorifying the villains or exploiting the tragedies of the victims. And your your work i think threads this lying perfectly. You don't shy away from gaskins crimes and you shouldn't But you're also pointing out these other things things we've called contradictions and you're giving voice to the survivors. You know the investigators people involved in more. How how do you as a creator. Navigate that line between like telling the story with the accuracy and fullness it deserves while also making space for the human lives that have been impacted by this criminal. We made a conscious effort early on my writing team. Which was jim. Roberts courtney to freeze and terry james and we knew that we wanted to shy away from going deep into the gory. Details and really be able to focus on the victims story. We felt it was important that the audience get to know. These families. young girls toddlers whoever might have been a victim so they understand the seriousness of these crimes and the lives that he was able to stuff out and again we were conscious as we were riding and putting this together trying to get the balance because some of these are obviously very scary stories that we wanted to pull the audience in to the visual scenes that were happening but obviously not focused too much obviously on the act itself but on the result which was the victims and the lives. That were ruined. Yeah we'll put. I just wanted to see personally. I appreciate that. And i found it impressive of. I think that's something that old that that a lot of people who listen to this show are going to recognize. So i guess that's less of a question than a little bit of fan mail. Sorry about that japanese. We've actually got some responses that have Talked about that as well. And you know nolan. I discussed this with these true crime. Podcast there are topics and things that the audience likes to hear. We want to make sure that we cover those topics but there were some deep dives. Obviously that we wanted to explore as well again personally. I love the subculture which i thought the audience with which was the trailer parks in the traveling carnivals. Then you got on jim side. Who's doing these interviews. You've got a literary professor across the table from a mass murderer and so again the balance between these personalities how they perceived life how they perceive family how they perceived relationships was fascinating to me. So i really wanted to get into the gym and pee wee story and i thought the audience would really enjoy that because it's a different angle to peewee. Gaskin said people had heard. I mean no one heard this story before because again jim hadn't really publicly talked about these fifty plus interviews. He had i thought the audience would love that. Your audience does love that Jim in anita They're fantastic in the show. I want to ask you about somebody who would have said. I think maybe. Correct me. If i'm wrong here. Who would have said pee. Wee gaskins is my friend. A man named walter neely. Can you tell us a little bit about that character. Who.

"For the past year. My life of sounded a lot like this. I've been home. We've been home day after day week after week month after month. This has become the comforting soundtrack of life. And it's been wild. Women have become mothers. Men have become fathers in my hand. I always thought that a kid could ruin. This is a podcast about origin. Stories about those moments big and small that transform us forever. This is wild season one home forever. Brought to you by me eric. Galindo and elliot's studios listened to while on the iheartradio app or wherever you get your podcast and we're back east. Ut we talked a good bit already about his kind of outsized Mythical persona that really was this kind of disconnect from his actual stature and like the like you says kind of like high pitched voice which i think probably caused a lot of people to underestimate him and he was also a master manipulator in that he was even able to kind of get the cops office trail literally just like by kind of gives throwing them this like diversion. Like there's a. There's a part where he's like working under a a a truck or something and the cops looking for him in connection to a disappearance and he just says no pee wee gaskins here basically literally. It's just like the most base he had this confidence. I think that was infectious. And i think that's what led to this sort of cult of personality. You see with this weird ragtag band of characters that he sort of had under his sway. He almost as this kind of weird cult leader figure in some ways but your friend And also someone who is a very important part of the story. Dr jim beattie had a really interesting with peewee. He Both academically and personally And he really gives an incredible perspective on a lot of these stories in the podcast. Can you speak a little bit about how you got connected up with dr beatty and and what their relationship was yes. So a colleague of mine. And good friend courtney freeze new the beatty family and suggested based on the fact that he knew jim dr beatty had done all these interviews with peewee may be great podcast and a great way to explore a different angle of somebody that actually sat across the table from him for seventy one hundred interviews and so i was like well this would be first of all just a fascinating guy to talk to so when i was able to finally meet him and his wife anita. Who's in the podcast. As well i really was interested in wanted to explore the story of two different men. Both who grew up very close to each other geographically. I think it was eighty miles apart. Both who are very close in age to three years apart. Both who had worked in some of the same places even though at different times campbell soup factory that they came to know once those interviews started and how they ended up with such different lives again. Jim family may end literary professor ordained minister. And then pee wee gaskins a mass murderer family as well but you know six different wives. If i'm not mistaken not sure how many kids. But he had a few and it drew me to one of the things that i'm always interested in exploring which is nature versus nurture. So jim has this beautiful lovely upbringing. Peewee supposedly had very rough tough childhood. Maybe some abuse some sexual abuse that happened to him so jim wanted to explore this as well as did i. If if pee wee's upbringing his difference if he's loved as a child if he you know is not sent to these tough reform school early on if he's given a full education does he wind up different and and i always fascinated exploring that question. I'm so glad you see that jeff because this leads us to another commonality that experts perceive in mass murderers serial criminals sexual saulters and the like. Which is that many many serial murderers seem to have these horrific childhoods right and we know that gaskins criminal career started at a very young age with a troubled trio. They call themselves. I think somewhere in like eleven to thirteen years old. And i have a two part question but it's a tough question to really get our minds around. I don't know where will fall on the on the nature versus nurture debate. But it felt like some of the people that you encounter in the course of your journey have come to a conclusion that some folks are simply borne evil. Did you run into winter. Talking with people did anybody bring up this nature versus nurture argument. And if so how did they approach. How did they grapple with this. Will i feel. Jim definitely felt there was a. What's the right word. Feel like jim thought that there was a direct correlation between the two and he felt pretty strongly that if p we had a loving family or different upbringing that his life would have been different. I feel some of the reporters and some of the. I don't know if we did any psychologists. But i feel there was some other people that felt the same way jim did. There may have been a couple people that leaned towards born evil. But i really think after. They looked at the whole life that it was just this was an evil man and they couldn't put their fingers on exactly where that all began. When you go back to your first part of the question been my thought is from the fifteen twenty thirty years of exploring these stories. I can't find one. Serial killer or murderer did didn't have a bad upbringing. I'm still trying to find that one. In fact i was just laughing about this. The other day the one movie i think it was with nicholas cage and it was called eight millimeter about that and ultimately at the end even though he was in this dark crazy world the antagonise of the movie the killer set says i had a loving and i didn't believe it ruined the movie for says i was like no i'm every study we've explored has pointed to a traumatic past it. Felt like the script writer. Said this is the twist you know. I think it felt that way agree with you. Felt that way because those that commonality is so. It occurs at such a distressingly frequent level. You know i also trying to. I've been trying to find someone who had like a happy home life owed unquote whatever.

"Of sorts somebody. That head traveled with the carnival ring for years and the people that traveled with. Him seemed to be a good fit for what he was doing. Car thefts petty. Thefts things like that so very interesting character and just to stay in this realm before even get into the crimes of donald pee wee gaskins. Ask you about a story that was told in the latest episode of the podcast. Came out this past monday. I think it was called loved her to death. And there's a story in there. Where a former employer of pee. Wee's tells a story about peewee strength and the story is about somebody with a tire like a truck tire. Do you remember that. Can you tell us that story. I do because the employer did mention that and so i think it had something to do with like physically. Maybe getting the rim off now again. I'm not a big car guy. you know. One of those people could change tires on might have changed one before. But i think it had something to do with getting the rim off of the tire itself using very little tools or minimum tools. And the way that that employer described it the strength to do that is very very difficult even with the tools themselves. So yes i agree with you and i don't even know if we put this story in as well matt but he also was known to like lift huge tons or things over his head so his strength was massive especially for the also add experience with a great experience with automobiles in general right he had already. He also trained himself to have a very powerful karate. China's right by by basically using the metal end of his bed and hitting it repeatedly. And i mean hundreds or thousands of times to build up that muscle or whatever it was. I think we may even cover that story. More a little bit in this upcoming episode. But but yeah and then again guys you know you got to imagine you're in reform school in all of these things early on you're probably beat up for your stature. So you're just building a toughness. A nails tough exterior throughout your whole life because of again your environment. You know what you were. Exposed to early on the beatings. All of that stuff. This guy was no joke. Want to expand on what you brought up matt the idea of anecdote here. Jeff i in the course of this show. The listener encounters multiple people who've had personal experience with gaskins. And one thing that's fascinating before we even get to the first episode just overall one thing that was fascinating to me is that many of these people come to some surprising agreements about the nature of gaskins character and one thing that really stood out was oddly. Enough people would talk about how he was at times. Apparently charming and charismatic said he was a monster in human flesh and other folks said that the said like he was actually. He could seem really friendly. If you didn't know who you were talking to and that because that surprised me. I wanted to ask you in the course of this story. What surprised you were there. Any things really really surprised you about the way people talked about gaskins or his interactions. Well here's what i do it again. A lot of people stories in different ways. I'm not an investigative reporter and there's a lot of people that do true crime that have either that background or approach it that way. I approach it more of a story. That i'm interested in. I'm a guide for the audience. Sometimes i have some unknown things that come my way that i just wanna explore that. I think the audience will be interested in as well and so with this particular guy in this case when i first heard about it and you guys. I'm sure. Imagine this as well. It's like this is a serial killer or mass murderer. How can you fall for this behavior. Whatever it is but then you hear over the past many of these famous serial killers. Mass murderers how charming they are how they can ingratiate themselves into communities or families or groups or whatever it is and so i thought i put myself back in these guys shoes years ago and i was like. There's no way you would fall for that. But i was never in front of this guy. I was never faced with his with his charm or manipulation. Or the power of this guy staring at you from across the table or making a deal with you whatever it was so you think it may be one way. But you've never faced this guy personally. And so as much. As i tried to imagine that i really had to listen to all these people that actually had faced and come in contact with him and realize man. This guy was a snake charmer this guy rising manipulator and and you may think that you could fight his charming abilities but most oftentimes. You could not can't out slither a snake right. This is something. I thought a lot about with the very first episode. Where you do something fascinating this. This isn't a spoiler here. It folks as soon as you tune in. We don't start in a linear way right. We don't start at gaskins. Birther is childhood or as i crime but with a nother story that takes place while gaskin is already incarcerated. What inspired you to approach it from this angle particularly we needed to basically have set up for the show of one of the main murders which you see in that first one is rudolph tyner and how it really connects to all the past murders and the unwitting accessory of that last murder. And how he or she is going to play a part in this entire podcast so it was unusual the way we did it. It's almost kind of like a standalone story but we felt to book in this podcast with that particular crime and murder. And is you'll see at the very end how it all plays out. It was the perfect way to tie it. All in. you know it's interesting. I think it's probably best left for folks to experience this themselves without going into the details of this crime malicious. Suffice it to say that Gaskins a very very clever way orchestrates essentially a hit on a man that he doesn't like but from within prison and that's a key. I think to gaskins personality. A man that he doesn't like gaskins had a code he didn't he wasn't like other serial killers who killed out of some perverse fetish or some sort of like drive to feed this hunger. He was more like a mafiose o or something he. He bumped people off who. He didn't feel his standards Or in some way you know had wronged him or he wanted to get rid of a rival. Can you tell us a little bit about you. Know his personal code. And what are some of the things that might have put you. Are i on pee-wee's hitlist before it gets to that. It's a good question. You tapped on something. I'm a big fan of subcultures so like in fight night. The subculture was hustler's of the early seventies in in atlanta. And then travelling up to new york down to miami but really getting into the world in the subculture of these hustlers. So in this particular story. It's basically a trailer park kingpins and traveling carnivals and the people that were in these traveling carnivals and type of work environment that they were in and the way they became family in an unusual way so that was interesting for me to explore that. And then pee. Wee's relationship to that noll was basically. His code was a couple of things. Betrayal was something that he despised. I think the most of anything one of his codes or part of his codes was you. Don't talk outside the circle. And that was. I love this phrase. I'm not sure if jim our one of our main characters or p we came up with this but it was called jawline you don't you don't go jal into the police or to other members in the community and i assume that means speak out of turn so jawline was one of the big things of his code. Another thing that was interesting was he was protectors supposedly of children and younger people for certain things profanity. Certain behaviors around them and again. He goes on to kill though these younger people and in fact a lot of the people that ended up falling to his knife or gun word younger especially women but for some reason that was a protector side. So profanity was a big thing. I heard he rarely ever if ever cussed and hate it when people did it maybe in front of him but specifically in front of children that was another part of his code. But the biggest one. Noel i would be the portrayal. Meaning do not cross him and specifically the jawline. Don't talk about me or my crimes are what we're doing to anybody else. You know. it's interesting. You say that jeff because we see some of those i guess a wait a vastly understated. Is we see some of those moral dichotomies or contradictions in a lot of extremely disturbed people even to the point of seeing it in fiction like anne in misery right who also hates cursing. Stephen king's misery. Good this leads me to think you know when we're talking a little bit about the mind of someone who's a mass murderer. A serial killer. Another interesting thing. Is that gaskins like other folks like henry. Lucas and so odd was prone to bouts of embellishments exaggeration and investigators suspect in many in some cases outright lying before he was put to death by the state of south carolina back in nineteen ninety-one about fifty eight years old. He had made statements. Claiming you know i've committed many more murders i've committed more than a hundred murders right. How how many of two hundred. It's a very strange. I mean usually psychologists push for notoriety. But my question for you is when you were speaking with people familiar with the case. How how much weight to investigators put in his statements there. You've got one person you speak with. Who says everybody who says when he was getting calls from people in as far away as australia to talk about to talk about gaskins crimes they kept trying to get him to agree with these higher numbers and he refused to. So what's the truth. Do we know or will we ever know we don't know and that's what i find so fascinating and i think with any of these true crime cases in less. Maybe you've got one hundred witnesses that see exactly what's going on. You have forensics evidence. You have witnesses you have investigators but unless you're actually there for these murder themselves we just don't know so i would say ben as a whole that most people thought it came in around eleven or twelve murders and that the legend of all those additional murders was just that of sometimes people talking of reporters covering stories of people gossiping around a community. And is you know. Things grow from there so i would say as a whole the people that we talked to in the investigators and attorneys and prosecutors stuff felt. It was around a dozen and the rest became legend. Now again the legend can sometimes become so powerful and become so useful even for a serial killer as well. But we don't know ben. I'll always find that a good place to rest because it allows us to examine the evidence ourselves and make a decision based on what we hear what we think based on all this stuff and these stories and this transcripts and stuff. Where do we think the truth lies. You know your other. Forgive my ignorance here jeff. But i i imagined that some of those legendary things or maybe even things that actually happened. That just can't be proven occurred when he was traveling with the carnival or something. Some things occurred that we just no one will ever know about. And i just wondered if you thought maybe that was even a possibility. I think that's a very fair to say matt because again if you're talking about somebody that can do this once and has been accused and convicted of these crimes and then ultimately executed which we know he was. We don't know what he was doing all the time or things that could have been left and you know if you're having these bodies buried and burial fields in one place what's going on somewhere else and we don't know if he gets angry at one guy that somebody didn't cover years ago so i would assume guys.

P we send chills down jim beattie spine pictures of grisly autopsy photos flash through his mind. The tone of voice was most alarming. That same voice was voice. I heard when he talked about dennis. Bellamy same voice. I heard later on when you talked about tyner. Same boy steady talked about avery. Howard and i realized i had violated the code. It was serious. Serious business. Jim and anita abadie had plenty of reasons to be concerned after the radio incident. Peewee had always been transparent during his interviews about how he viewed betrayal. He did say my mother will be expecting arabia. I knew that. I did not want to be in that category of people that didn't follow up on what really required and ask them to do. Do not fail pee wee gaskins. Several people in this story lost their lives after they betrayed him. They were shot stabbed strangled or drowned. Jim references a code that peewee followed expectations for people around him expectations. That others should live by and that he would kill by not formal not sensible newspapers all over the southeast printed stories about the killer's code as a way to understand a man who murdered so many. These mass murderers are easier to comprehend to categorize to contain. If we're able to put labels on their behaviors but with gaskins there was no firm sense of why no easy justification or psychologist no clear modus operandi. He didn't kill couples parked in cars at night or berry his victims under his house. He didn't present a sexual fetish or chop people up and put their body parts in his freezer. There is evidence though that gaskins had his own. Strictly enforced twisted sense of morals the penalty for violating. His morality could be death. Holly gatling margaret o'shea and cecil chandler all spent significant time with peewee story. And help shed light on him as a killer. I tell you what he told me. One time you know some of his crisis stick in my mind. He said i never killed nobody. That didn't need killing not a lot. Surprises me about what people are capable of doing. At that point in my life. I had written about many many others who had done grizzly things. People call him a serial killer but unlike most he didn't have an m. o. He he didn't have a trigger or desire to be met that figured in all of his killing. This is a kind of person. You wonder what's going through his mind. Was he really crazier. Just somebody wanted to kill somebody of the eleven people killed so far in our story. Seven were by hand drowned beaten or stabbed with the campbell soup knife physical violence from a man who was just over five feet tall and weighed one hundred and thirty pounds. Here's jim pee. Wee reese thirteen years of age. He established himself early in the industrial school. There in france he was the smallest and the group but he was a quickest fastest. He attacked two of the different guards. Put them both in the hospital so he became the big man early even at the reform school. And this is a pattern for peewee. This is an emo establish who's in charge. The potential for violence goes a long way in crowd. Control and peewee. Use it over those people around him. It held them in check. Got them to meet his expectations. One of the violations to pee-wee's twisted ethics was white. Should not mix with blacks especially when it came to sex gaskins. Thought people had their place and that whites and blacks had no place together and he was willing to go as far as murder to enforce his expectations. And p we felt no guilt when discussing his murders. The only time that gaskins came close to remorse was when he talked. Jim beattie about johnny night pay. We talked to me about what a shame. It was that john. Henry knight had to die. He didn't say i killed him. And i'm sorry he semper said it was a shame that john henry knight had to die. It's a shame. Johnny night had.
