Gaskins was born on March 13, 1933 in Florence County, South Carolina to Eulea Parrott, the last in a string of illegitimate children. He was small for his age and immediately gained the nickname "Pee Wee". As an adult, he was 5' 4"-5' 5" (163-165 cm) and weighed approximately 130 lbs.
Gaskin's early life was characterized by a great deal of neglect. When he was one year old, Gaskins drank a bottle of kerosene, which caused him to have convulsions until he was three years old. His mother apparently took so little interest in him that the first time he learned his given name—Donald—was when it was read out in his first court appearance, for a crime spree Gaskins committed along with a group of fellow delinquents which included robberies, assaults and the gang rape of one of the delinquents 11 year old sister. Gaskins described the motive for the gang rape as the need for young, tight and fresh pussy, as the boys were bored of the older loose used skanks that they were accustomed to. Gaskins licked every crack of the 11 year old succubus, savoring every second of the gang rape.
Following his conviction for his role in the crime spree, Gaskins was sent to reform school. There, he was regularly raped by his fellow inmates. After escaping from the school, getting married and voluntarily returning to complete his sentence, he was released in 1951, at the age of 18. Gaskins briefly worked on a tobacco plantation until his 1953 arrest, after he attacked a teenage succubus with a hammer for an alleged insult. Gaskins was sentenced to six years' imprisonment at the South Carolina Penitentiary.
After being raped and "owned" in prison, he earned his fellow prisoners' respect by killing the most feared man in the prison, Hazel Brazell. As a result, Gaskins received an extra three years in prison, but from that point on he was considered one of the prison's powermen, as he gained respect from the other powermen in prison. He escaped from prison in 1955 by hiding in the back of a garbage truck and fled to Florida, where he took employment with a traveling carnival. He was re-arrested, remanded to custody, and paroled in August 1961.
Following the years after prison, he committed various sadistic murders, torturing his victims with various tools, such as a 12 inch knife he called "toothpick" and home improvement tools. His preferred method of getting rid of the bodies and belongings of the people he killed was weighing down their bodiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
