Not sure if you’ve noticed, but our culture has become rather apathetic when it comes to death. It seems we can’t even begin to process a tragedy before the next one strikes … and then the next one.
“We have this culture of death,” says Daniel Horowitz. “We become mind-numb robots at a time of the internet where we should know more than ever,” and yet “we know less than ever; we care about less than ever.”
“We’re gonna talk about a story that should be the greatest crime story of our lifetime, and I’m not exaggerating,” he says – a story that is “probably the greatest serial murder ever in American history.”
What’s perhaps most disturbing, however, is the fact that so few people know about this story.
Between the years of 2016 and 2018, Kenyan national Billy Chemirmir was accused of smothering 22 elderly women to death and stealing their jewelry in several different senior centers across the Dallas metroplex.
But there are likely dozens more who died at Chemirir’s hand – victims who will never receive the justice they are owed.
Despite loads of evidence – DNA, blood, stolen jewelry, break-ins, and suspiciously proximate deaths – Chemirmir’s killing spree went on for two years, but “nothing was done security-wise … [or] in terms of police investigators,” Horowitz explains.
It wasn’t until an alleged victim miraculously survived Chemirmir’s attacks that he was finally identified.
However, Chemirmir has only been convicted of two murders and has now escaped the death penalty. Collin County, a notoriously conservative division, “will not seek the death penalty” despite the fact that “they caught the guy a million times over with every form of evidence you can imagine,” says Horowitz.
“This implicates jailbreak; it implicates the lack of death penalty; it implicates our criminal alien problem we have; it implicates the lack of regard for the lives of our seniors – ageism against older people; and frankly also implicates racism, because particularly the older generation is viewed as mainly white and they’re expendable,” says Horowitz.
What’s even more upsetting is that these tragic deaths could have been avoided.
The crime began long before Chemirmir went on his murderous rampage. He was granted a tourist visa in July 2003 from Kenya but became an illegal alien when he overstayed his visa by several years. Somehow, Chemirmir was able to obtain a green card through a marriage that was likely fake, all while living illegally in the United States.
“Just from an immigration standpoint alone, this guy should have been out,” says Horowitz. According to the law, “anyone who remains [in the U.S.] illegally is not only deported but barred from re-entering the country for ten years, but they liberally created this loophole in law and allowed him to remain.”
Further, before the killings began, Chemirmir was indicted on three separate occasions for DWIs and charged with causing bodily injury to his girlfriend.
“This man should have been deported many times over,” Horowitz says.
But he wasn’t, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. It gets so much worse.
Joining Horowitz on the show are Ellen French House and Cheryl Pangburn, the daughters of two of Chemirmir’s victims.
Together they discuss “the most unbelievable story of all time.”
