12 Nightmares Before Christmas Day 6 In a Fit of Rage: Leo Held

On the 6th day of the 12 Nightmares Before Christmas series, Cam and Jen talk about Leo Held.

Massacres in the workplace have become all too familiar in today’s society, but crimes like these were fairly unheard of in 1967. Sadly that would change one chilly fall morning when Leo Held woke up, got ready for work, kissed his wife goodbye, dropped his children off at school, and then went to his workplace where he unleashed a rampage. The slaughter would not end there as he was not done killing. After all, he was still upset with a few people.

Big thanks to Don Sarvey.  He wrote the book Day of Rampage: Model citizen turns cold-blooded killer in a Pennsylvania small town.

He compiled all the news articles from that horrible day and then interviewed many of the survivors in 2011.  Most of the quotes I’ve used today were taken from his hard work,  Blood sweat and tears go into writing a book and I want to get sure he gets all the credit.
