Psycho Wiki

Dr. Leo Richmond was Norman Bates' mental doctor at the asylum who feared that Norman would always continue his mother's murderous legacy.

He appeared on a radio show hosted by Fran Ambrose to discuss the topic of matricide. A man identifying himself as "Ed" called the show, describing his own life and killing his own mother.

Richmond soon realized that "Ed" was Norman and urged Ambrose to trace the calls, to no avail.

Behind the scenes[]

Despite the difference in name and actor, it is possible that Richmond was intended to be the same character as Dr. Fred Richman.
