Serial Killer Richard Ramirez yawns in court.
" I was completely swept along with my own compulsion, I don’t know how else to put it. It didn’t satisfy me completely so maybe I was thinking another one (murder) will. maybe this one will, and the numbers started growing and growing and just got out of control, as you can see. I got to the point where I lost my job because of it. " -Jeffrey Dahmer
Serial killer Albert Fish in the electric chair at Sing Sing;
They say he said electrocution would be “the supreme thrill of his life”. Just before the switch was flipped, he stated “I don’t even know why I am here.” It is said that his execution took longer because of the needles in his groin which disrupted the flow of electricity.
Heretics Fork: A medieval torture device which consisted of a two-sided fork. A person wearing it couldn’t fall asleep. The moment their head dropped with fatigue, the prongs pierced their throat or chest, causing great pain. This very simple instrument created long periods of sleep deprivation, which made confessions more likely.
Police officers carrying the body of Frank Dolezal. Dolezal was a suspect in the Cleveland Torso Murderers case - where 12 people had been killed and dismembered in the Cleveland area during the 1930’s - however currently the consensus is that he was no the perpetrator. Dolezal was arrested on August 24, 1939 for the murder of Florence Polillo, one of the victims of the Torso Murderer. He admitted to killing her in self defense, although it is thought that this confession was beaten out of him, as he died under suspicious circumstances in jail and was found to have 6 broken ribs - injuries he somehow sustained after his arrest.
Tylar Witt, who at 14 murdered her mother with the help of her boyfriend Steven Colver.
Tylar’s grandfather, Norbert Witt, accused Colver in court of both murdering his daughter and of corrupting his granddaughter by exposing her to “heavy narcotics and sex.”
"To me killing people is like ripping up a duvet. Men, women, old people, children, they are all the same. I have never felt sorry for those I killed. No love, no hatred, just blind indifference. I don’t see them as individuals, but just as masses.“
- Anatoly Onoprienko, Serial Killer
I created this horror and it only makes sense that I do everything to put an end to it, a complete end to it. - Jeffrey Dahmer
