Claudia Rolling Testified Against Danny Rolling in the Gainesville Murders Case
Claudia Rolling testified about the physical abuse her son received at the hands of Rolling, which helped the defense argue he was mentally unfit to stand trial for any Gainesville murders. Her testimony provided powerful support to this position.
Psychiatrists concluded that Rolling was suffering from borderline personality disorder, which is characterized by extreme mood swings, impulsive behaviors and feelings of anti-socialism. Reportedly he believed he had multiple personalities who frequently switched roles.
Early Life and Education
James Rolling was a police officer and served in the military during the Korean War. Claudia tried to leave him multiple times without success. Finally, during an argument between family members in May 1990, Danny shot his father several times; although he survived with one eye and one ear injured permanently.
Rolling was found guilty of multiple murders between 1993 and 2004, attributing them to abuse he experienced as both a child and prisoner, his divorce from Claudia (from whom they had two sons named Daniel and Kevin), his abuse during these encounters, as well as London (his former partner). Their relationship was explored in Errol Morris’s series First Person.
Claudia’s practice specializes in healthcare and regulatory law. She assists clients in compliance and risk management issues related to Medicare enrollment/reimbursement/Stark Anti-Kickback Compliance/HIPAA Compliance as well as malpractice matters and professional licensing board matters.
After breakfast, Claudia heads over to Mary Anne’s and discovers that Stacey and Jeremy have separated. Claudia is taken aback and spends much of her day worrying over this news.
Rolling was found guilty in Gainesville murders after police discovered DNA on his mutilated body parts linked to the crime scene. Later, Rolling admitted his guilt as well as another spree of similar killings in Shreveport, Louisiana. Mental health professionals concluded he suffered from personality disorders from years of being mistreated by his father.

Rolling’s childhood was marred by physical abuse from his police officer father. This likely contributed to his later behavior – often drawing dark, sexual images and asserting multiple personalities.
Rolling’s confession included killing one person for every year spent behind bars. Additionally, he admitted his participation in both Gainesville Ripper murders as well as three family murders in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Rolling was executed in 1989 amid anti-death penalty protesters singing Kumbaya and Blowin’ in the Wind outside his execution chamber. A tape recording him singing gospel songs at his camp in Florida where he committed his crimes was discovered there after they committed theirs; Rolling was ultimately charged with six bank robberies and five murders.
