John Wayne Gacy is a fine example of a serial killer who, ironically, was quite active in his community and regarded with much respect and reverence. John would organize parties and attend fundraisers and children’s parties dressed up as Pogo the Clown. As a reward for all the positive work he did for the community, he was nominated director of Chicago’s Polish Constitution Day Parade and in 1978, met and took a picture with the First Lady, just seven months before police started digging up bodies of young boys from the crawl space of his home.

“Our primary interest is what you’ve got between your legs. You’ll be raped thoroughly and repeatedly in every hole you’ve got, because basically, you’ve been snatched and brought here for us to train and use as a sex slave.”

David Parker Ray, his girlfriend, Cindy Hendy, his daughter, Glenda Jesse, and a friend, Roy Yancy, abducted women, mainly prostiutes and runaways, in the vicinity of New Mexico. They would take these terrified women to Ray’s windowless and soundproof trailer which he referred to as the “Toy Box” where they would be stripped, strapped to a gynaecologist chair, raped by Ray and his accomplices and with large and odd shaped dildos and also tortured. The “toy box” was equipped with whips, chains, pulleys, straps, clamps, leg spreader bars, surgical blades, and saws, which he used on his victims. When Ray had enough of the women, he would strangle and then dump their bodies. It is believed that he killed more than thirty women. He would play his victims a tape of a speech he had made which was used to emotionally break them down so they would obey his commands. Following is an excerpt from the tape:

“Hello there, bitch. You’re chained, handcuffed, scared, and disoriented. Listen to this tape. It was created July 23, 1993, as an advisory for female captives based on my several years of experience. You are here against your will. You probably think you are going to be raped. You’re right about that - you will be raped thoroughly and repeatedly… My female companion and I are very selective. We’ll snatch up anything clean, young, and well built. We’re basically like predators. We’re always looking. I don’t want to kill unless it’s absolutely necessary. If I killed every victim I ever kidnapped, there’d be bodies all over the country” 

They were finally apprehended when a victim managed to escape from the “toy box”, naked, wearing only an iron slave collar and padlocked chains. She had been kidnapped and tortured for three days.

Serial killer Arthur Shawcross did not testify during his later murder trial for the killing of numerous prostitutes during the late 1980’s. Instead the jury were shown video taped interviews with Shawcross where he had been hypnotised by a psychiatrist. During these sessions Shawcross revealed a shocking past, which he said had included incest with his sister, sexual abuse at the hands of his mother, and a number of atrocities he committed while serving in vietnam - one of which included cannibalism.

Despite the claims of early and intense traumatisation Shawcross told the Doctor that he did not experience auditory hallucinations and did not have more than one personality. The psychiatrist concluded that Shawcross had been attempting to fake mental illness in order to receive a more lenient sentence for his crimes.

On June 2, 1985, only a day after bludgeoning an elderly woman to death and seriously mutilating another, Richard Ramirez crept into the home of Mary Louise Cannon, aged 75. He quickly found a hefty vase-lamp in her bedroom and struck her over the head with it. Once she awoke screaming, Richard knocked her out with his fist and proceeded to strangle and beat her even when she was unconscious. He then left the room and returned clutching a sharp, 10-inch-long butcher knife in his hand. Without a second thought, he violently plunged the blade into her throat over and over again until she was no longer alive. Afterward, Richard washed the blood off, ransacked Mary’s house for anything valuable he could take, and exited by the front door. 

I think it is hilarious that people are browsing through the true crime tag, and reporting blogs to the staff that have Dylann Roof’s name or pictures…but I find it especially hilarious, when those people have no idea what the fuck they are looking at, and they are reporting Jeffrey Dahmer as a terrorist, and calling him racist…..He didn’t kill those people because he didn’t like their skin color, he did it because that is what he was attracted to…..Stop reporting shit when you don’t even know what the fuck it is…lol

Photograph of serial killer Dorothea Helen Puente. In the 1980s, Puente ran a boarding house in Sacramento, California, and cashed the Social Security checks of her elderly and mentally disabled boarders, keeping almost all their money for herself. She was convicted of theft in 1982, after drugging and robbing a 74 year old man, and after her release was ordered to stay away from the elderly and not to handle government checks - despite this she continued to run her boarding house and continued to accept elderly tenants, although the parole officers who were monitoring her failed to note any violations.

Eventually the police discovered seven bodies buried under Puente’s lawn. She was charged with nine murders, convicted of three and received two life sentences. She died in prison on the 27th of March 2011 from natural causes.

Taunton State Hospital
Massachusetts, USA

Located in Taunton, Massachusetts, Taunton State Hospital was built in 1854 as a psychiatric hospital, and it boasts a rather horrifying history. One of the hospital’s most famous patients was Jane Toppan, a serial killer who confessed to having murdered at least 31 people while working as a nurse. And yet, according to some of the stories, the people who ran Taunton State Hospital may have actually been even more terrifying than many of the criminally insane patients it housed.

Rumors persist that some of the doctors and nurses would take the (obviously unwilling) patients into the basement and use them to conduct satanic rituals, and in its later years both patients and doctors reported feeling a tremendous sense of unease when even approaching the door to the basement. Reports abound of a “shadow man” who would crawl on the walls and watch the patients. At least you wouldn’t feel lonely, right?

Both were sentenced to life imprisonment. Buono died of a heart attack in his cell in 2002.
