Edmund Kemper, The Co-ed Killer

Season 1, Episode 16,  May 30, 2022, 04:00 AM

Helen Anderson and Danni Howard finish the series with a killer of enormous proportions… literally. At a staggering height of 6”7, ‘Big Ed’ is one of the most violent and messed up killers of the century. After murdering his grandparents aged just 15 years old, Edmund went on to kill dozens of University students before exacting revenge on his estranged mother in one of the worst ways imaginable. Expect sinister beginnings, another tale of reformation gone seriously wrong, and one of the most gruesome ends Helen and Danni have ever seen.

Devils in The Dark contains graphic details of sexual assault and violence and is not intended for all audiences. Listener discretion is strongly advised.
