Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In 2005, Joseph Edward Duncan III traveled into Idaho and kidnapped Shasta and Dylan Groene after killing the rest of their family. After weeks of no sign of the children, what kind of restaurant did Duncan take Shasta into where she was recognized and he was subsequently captured by police?

Answer: Denny's

After several people recognized Shasta, the manager called 911 at 1:51 AM and police arrived about 10 minutes later. Unfortunately, it was already too late for Dylan.
2. In 1977, New York City was paralyzed with fear over the ".44 Caliber Killer". This was the original name given to the person who came to be known as the "Son of Sam", David Berkowitz. Who was it that inspired him to refer to himself as the "Son of Sam"?

Answer: His neighbor, Sam

Berkowitz believed demons lived in dogs and their howling ordered him to hunt for blood. One of those dogs belonged to a Pine Street neighbor, Sam Carr. Berkowitz sent a letter warning of his intention to harm Mr. Carr but he ended up shooting the Carr's dog, Harvey, instead. According to David, Mr. Carr was host to a powerful demon named Sam and it was this demon that he referred to when he dubbed himself "Son of Sam".

By the way, his adoptive father's name was Nathan and his birth mother's name was Betty.
3. In the 1980s, the Seattle area was being haunted by the "Green River Killer". During this decade, a man named Gary Ridgway was taken into custody several times and questioned, but each time he was released because there was insufficient evidence to charge him. In which year was he finally arrested and charged with murder?

Answer: 2001

Thankfully, DNA samples taken from a few victims and from Ridgway in 1987 were preserved well enough to be tested with the newest process. It was a match! In 2003, he avoided the death penalty by confessing to the murders of 48 women.
4. In 2003, a male nurse by the name of Charles Cullen gained national attention for being an "angel of death". He confessed to police that, over a span of 16 years, he had caused 35 to 45 deaths in Pennsylvania and New Jersey by overdosing patients. What was the drug he used most often to cause death?

Answer: Digoxin

Digoxin is used to treat heart failure. Cullen manipulated records and supplies to gain access to the drugs he used. In several instances coworkers suspected he was up to something, but he quit or was fired before any charges could be substantiated. On a more personal note - this scary guy worked in several hospitals in and around my hometown and the town where I now reside!
5. In February 1980, Ted Bundy's sentencing trial for the murder of Kimberly Leach began. During the penalty phase, what did he do that completely shocked the courtroom?

Answer: He exchanged wedding vows with a witness.

Carole Ann Boone, a witness for the defense, and Bundy were former coworkers. Carole followed Ted to Florida to plead for his life. While she was on the stand, he proposed and she accepted. According to an old state law, the proposal and acceptance stated in the Florida courtroom constituted a legal marriage.

As a result of several conjugal visits, a daughter was born in 1982. Before his execution, Carole moved away, divorced Ted and changed her and her daughter's last name.
6. In the 1880s, H.H. Holmes arrived in Chicago. By committing fraud and murder, he accumulated enough funds to purchase a property and build a three story, 100 room house. What did he call his residence?

Answer: The "Castle"

Numerous women who came into contact with Holmes simply disappeared. He liked to prey upon young, single women whom he perceived to be naive enough to trust a successful and charming "doctor" such as himself. Some rented rooms in his house, others were in his employ but all were never heard from again.

The "Castle" included rooms with soundproof walls, peepholes, sliding walls, trapdoors, secret passages and false floors. There were also rooms with torture equipment, rooms with gas vents and a specially equipped surgery.

It seems he took great pleasure in pumping lethal gas into a room where he had trapped a victim, sometimes igniting the gas to incinerate them.
7. In the late 1970s, Richard Chase started a killing spree that would earn him the title "vampire". He had previously told doctors that he thought his blood was turning to powder and he needed blood from other creatures to replenish it. At one time he mentioned his concerns about "soap dish poisoning". What did Chase say was a sign that you had this poisoning?

Answer: If you lifted up the soap and it was gooey underneath.

"Soap dish poisoning" is what he believed turned your blood to powder. This powder would deplete your energy and eat away at your body. Despite being told these strange statements, doctors released him from the psychiatric hospital that he was being held in at the time.
8. On October 16, 2006, 13 year old Megan Meier of Missouri committed suicide. She had been corresponding online with a supposed 16 year old boy named Josh for about a month before things went horribly wrong. Josh tried to get Megan to gossip about other girls then started a fight and told Megan that the world would be better off without her. Who did investigators find out was allegedly behind the farce?

Answer: Lori Drew, the mother of a formerly close friend of Megan's.

The federal investigation alleges that Lori Drew was the one behind the hoax but when questioned, she blamed an employee of her home-based business for setting up the account with MySpace. The employee admitted her part in the scheme but implicated Mrs. Drew as being an integral participant. Unfortunately at this time, because the authorities decided that potential charges of stalking and harassment couldn't be prosecuted successfully, Mrs. Drew is only facing charges of defrauding MySpace. Josh Evans is the name used for the fake boy. Sarah Wells is a Virginia housewife who identified, by name, Lori Drew in her blog when news reports were still omitting Mrs. Drew's name from the stories being published. Dardenne Prairie is the town in Missouri where this whole, unfortunate hoax took place.
9. On November 15, 2004, Tom and Jackie Hawks were murdered by Skylar Deleon, a former actor with a small role on the show "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers", and two accomplices. By April 2005, the police were ready to charge Skylar and everyone involved with two counts of first degree murder with special circumstances of multiple murder and murder for financial gain. It was at this time that police uncovered other plots of murder that Skylar had been involved in. What were the charges that were put up against Skylar Deleon?

Answer: The murders of the Hawkses and a former business partner, Jon Jarvi and the attempted murders of his father and cousin.

On board the Hawks' yacht, the victims were bound and gagged. They were then tied to the anchor and thrown overboard, but not before they were forced to sign a bill of sale for the yacht and a power of attorney document and give up their bank account passwords. Jon Jarvi was murdered by Skylar in Mexico in 2003 after he convinced Jon to loan him $50,000 for a supposed business deal. Skylar also was charged with the attempted murder of his father, because Skylar had told him about details of the murders of the Hawks, and the attempted murder of his cousin, who had helped Skylar cover up the Jarvi murder.
10. In September 2007, Kirby Archer and Guillermo Zarabozo killed four people aboard a fishing vessel called the "Joe Cool". They paid for a trip from Miami to Bimini, Bahamas but their intent was to hijack the boat to Cuba. The Coast Guard discovered the empty boat about 30 miles off the coast of Cuba and Archer and Zarabozo floating in the life raft a few miles from the "Joe Cool". What story did they originally tell the authorities as to what had happened to the crew?

Answer: The crew had been attacked and killed by Cuban pirates.

Archer ended up in Florida after fleeing from Batesville, Arkansas where he had stolen $94,000 from the Wal-Mart he worked at and was under investigation for child molestation. Among those killed were the boat's owner Jake Branam, his wife Kelley, his half-brother Scott Gamble and a family friend, Sammy Kairy.
