Episode 027: Keith Hunter Jesperson is one of Canada’s most notorious exports to the United States. Born in Chilliwack British Columbia, Jesperson and his family emigrated to the US when he was a pre-teen. Early on he showed signs that have become signposts of the budding psychopath, cruelty to animals and a love of setting fires. Keith’s first kill was Taunja Bennett, 23, of Portland, Oregon. Another couple was convicted for the crime, but Jesperson’s ego wouldn’t let someone else take all the credit for his hard work, leading him to leave the first Happy Face note in a truck stop bathroom admitting to the crime. This episode covers his early life, first murder and another attempted murder very soon after.
