(Daredevil I#292 (fb) - BTS) - Small-time criminal Cass, also called Mad Dog, connected fighter Ernie Saltes to Taskmaster.

(Daredevil I#292) - Cass went running from Daredevil when the hero closed in on him. He fired his gun at Daredevil, but Cass ended up getting kicked in the face and knocked out. When he awoke, he was strapped to the water tower, and Daredevil wanted to know about the murder of Ernie Saltes. Mad Dog refused to talk, but Daredevil soon loosened the ropes, letting Mad Dog believe he'd fall. Cass, slightly mad from the water dripping on his head, admitted the connection to Taskmaster, then Daredevil let him down. Cass vowed he'd never go near water again.

(Daredevil I#295 (fb) - BTS) - Cass made inquiries and discovered the Hand was operating out of an old nightclub.

(Daredevil I#295) - Still muttering about his new fear of water, Cass went to meet with Daredevil, but a Hand ninja attacked him. Daredevil defeated the ninja and got the intel, and Cass said he was going home to lock his doors.

(Daredevil I#298) - Larry "Mad Dog" Cass was approached by Daredevil, who asked him to spread rumors at the local bars that Kingpin was being undermined by the new Hydra. Mad Dog spread the rumors that night.

(Daredevil I#315 - BTS) - Looking for a culprit, Daredevil listened into Mad Dog Cass on the street.
