Serial Killers

The California Witch Killers

The couple that slays together, stays together? That has to be on a bumper sticker somewhere! If not, it will be! (You’re welcome whoever runs out and does it) Suzan and James Carson did their fair share of slaying together but in the end, weren’t able to stay together. Separate prisons have a tendency to do that to a couple….

The Amityville Horror Part 1 – The DeFeo Murders

Amityville, Long Island. You know the name. But before The Amityville Horror, there was something much more horrific…and 100% real. On November 13, 1974, Ronald Defeo Sr, his wife Louise, and their children Dawn, Allison, Mark, and John were shot and killed in their beds. The oldest child Ron Jr. was the only survivor. He was also the shooter. He was convicted and sentenced to life in prison…

Murderabilia

People love to collect stuff. Stamps, coins, rocks- you name it and there’s probably someone who collects it. Some people collect memorabilia from important moments in their life. Murderabilia is something completely different. Murderabilia is items related to murders and the people who commit them. And there’s a huge market for the stuff…

What’s Your Last Meal?

We all have our favorite foods. Maybe it’s some that your mother made when you were a kid or a dish at your favorite restaurant. And of course…a dessert to follow it up with! But what if it was the last thing you were ever going to eat? Now that I think about it – I’m not 100% sure exactly what I’d choose. If you can’t make up your mind either – here’s a list of what some famous killers had for their last meals:

Serial Killers

The Sons of Sam

I recently binge-watched The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness on Netflix. If you haven’t already watched it, I recommend it. It’s a fascinating four-part documentary. If you’re looking for an in-depth documentary about David Berkowitz a/k/a The Son of Sam a/k/a/ the .44 Killer, this isn’t it. The first episode is a recap of the case, and full of actual news broadcasts and interviews. This show is about a journalist named Maury Terry, and how his obsession with Berkowitz and the theory that he didn’t act alone, basically ruined his life…

Homicide

The Kobe School Killer

On the morning of May 27, 1997, in the port city of Kobe located on the Japanese island of Honshu, police got several calls from people passing the town’s junior high school about something that looked like a mannequin’s head laying in front of the gate. When police arrived they quickly realized that this was not a mannequin’s head, but the head of an 11-year-old mentally challenged boy named Jun Hase…

Dorothea Puente

Dorothea Puente was a sweet old woman that rented rooms in her house to elderly and disabled people. She was happy to take care of them, give them their meds, and even hold their hands if they needed it. Oh yeah, and she was also happy to murder them, bury them in her backyard, and steal their social security and pension checks…
