On Part 1, we explore the creation of Earle Leonard Nelson. We deep dive into his youth, his peculiar behavior and habits. We find out what Earle is passionate about, like scripture, dark places, masturbation and brothels. In the beginning, Earle is just a peculiar boy with a troubled youth and a grandma who is a religious fanatic. Add in massive head trauma and possibly a long case of untreated syphilis and now you have a Man Beast on your hands. So, listen in as we discover how Earle Leonard Nelson crosser over that line into murder-ville to transform into the Dark Strangler.
