About James "Mike" Mitchell DeBardeleben


James Mitchell "Mike" DeBardeleben (March 20, 1940 - January 26, 2011) was a convicted rapist and counterfeiter who became known as the "Mall Passer" due to his practice of passing counterfeit bills in shopping malls abutting interstate highways across the country. After his arrest for counterfeiting, he was found to have committed much more serious sex crimes. Although he was never brought to trial for murder, he was the principal suspect in two homicides and he remains a suspect in several others. He died of pneumonia at the Federal Medical Center in Butner, North Carolina in early 2011.
