TM2M Specials: Donald Rudolph & The Grisly Triple Slaying In Weymouth, MA

Hey, guys this weeks Talko Special is for our Supremo Shannon from Weymouth, Mass.

What makes this case so interesting is even till this day the courts have not tried the killer or found him guilty in any way.

Our episode starts on November 10, 2011, in Weymouth, Massachusets at 10 Upland Rd.

Police respond to a call about suspicious activity at the residence, apparently concerned neighbors had called 911.

When police pull up to the home, they spot a young male through the first-floor window.

The policemen apprehend the suspect as he was attempting to escape out of the back window in the basement.
The suspect’s name is Donald Rudolph, a thinly-looking teenager, some of his arresting officers recognize that for previous violations.

The police reports, which unfortunately our court sealed at this time, state that one of the officers hears Rudolph mumble, “I fucked up, you’ll see when you go inside the house.”

Inside the house was nothing short of a massacre.

It may be hard to imagine how much blood would have soaked the floors and furniture of the home until you realize that three people were laying slain in the house, all murdered with hammers and knives.

Frederick Medina, 52, was the first to be discovered by the police and according to assistant Norfolk District Attorney, Craig Kowalski,

“Mr. Medina was found lying on his back, on the floor, with his shirt soaked in blood and his throat slit.”

Mr. Medina also was stabbed several times in the torso.

The immense amount of blood and a nearby bloody hammer suggested to police that both women died by beating; Caylin was also repeatedly stabbed.

“There was an extreme amount of stab wounds to Mr. Medina’s body, as well as Caylin Rudolph’s body,’’ said Kowalski.

Found next to Medina’s dead body was a bloody hammer and knife, and even more, knives were found wrapped inside a placemat on the kitchen table.

Rudolph was charged with three counts of murder and three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and at the time was being held without bail.

One month after Rudolph was arrested he wrote letters addressed to his dead mother and sister, both which he had brutally murdered, to ask about their health.

Donald Rudolph was sent to Bridgewater State Hospital to be diagnosed before standing trial for the murders; he was ultimately deemed not competent to stand trial.

Till this day he has not been deemed competent to stand trial and it is little doubt that he will ever be.
