Donald Rudolph allegedly murdered 3 people in November of 2011 including his mother and sister. He was 18 at the time.
Two years before the murders, after displaying signs of being troubled, Donald was placed in foster care and began going from foster homes to his parents house to the street. When he aged out of the system he became involved with drugs and was basically homeless. In the months leading up to the crime he was diagnosed with mental illnesses including schizophrenia and depression and was also arrested 4 times. His older sister who was away at college the night the murders took place believes state officials missed clear signs that her brother needed additional help.
Donald’s attorney pleaded not guilty on his behalf saying that Rudolph has no memory of the tragic events.
