Publisher's Summary

It is plausible that Donald Henry Gaskins was born a psychopath; it may also be said that his life experiences helped turn him into a sociopath. The Meanest Man in America earned the title of the most prolific serial killer in South Carolina’s history. Although it was never confirmed, Gaskins claimed to have murdered more than 100 people, with some reports as high as 181. 

He tortured, killed, and occasionally ate his victims until his final arrest in 1975. Gaskins was ultimately executed, not for his many, many murders outside prison, but for killing a prisoner on death row while Gaskins himself was serving consecutive life sentences.

Pee Wee was a bad man

Its a little too short to really get into the history of this man but it is entertaining and does touch the surface of his life and his crimes.
