Novice Psychopath, Daniel Kelsall looked harmless, but this skinny 20-year-old with curly ginger hair was anything but. Inside this nerdish, owlish looking young man seethed a mass of cold anger and his blackened heart beat with the desire to commit evil deeds.
Daniel told mental health professionals about his thoughts of killing random strangers, but they didn’t take him seriously, letting him slip through the cracks of an already overloaded system. One night after finishing a shift at a restaurant he enacted his evil and bloody ambition with deadly results.
