A new episode of Law&Crime Network’s ‘Devil in the Dorm’ was released exclusively on Wondery+ Monday.
Episode 3, titled Forced Labor, takes a deep dive into the time when Larry Ray took his victims off campus — from Sarah Lawrence College in New York down to North Carolina.
At this point, Larry’s victims had trusted him: They thought he was a kind soul and great listener. So when he told them they needed to go to Pinehurst, North Carolina, to his step-father’s house, they didn’t ask any questions.
At the house, Larry forced his victims to dig ditches, lay down sod, and tear up the entire property. He restricted their access to food, water and sleep.
Larry told his victims that if they didn’t clean up the property perfectly, his step-father would literally die.
The victims later told investigators that due to the influence Larry had on them, they didn’t feel like they had any ability to leave — or that anyone but Larry could help them. One victim said she felt trapped, overwhelmed and even lost 40 pounds.
Larry physically, psychologically, and sexually tortured his victims in North Carolina — and continued to when they group returned to New York.
New episodes of ‘Devil in the Dorm’ are released every Monday. Next week, host and actress Elisabeth Rohm will tell listeners about how Larry Ray managed to launder millions of dollars from a sex trafficking victim.
