“Supposin’ I did kill the Black Dahlia. They can’t prove it now. They can’t talk to my secretary anymore because she’s dead. They thought there was something fishy. Anyway, now they may have figured it out. Killed her. Maybe I did kill my secretary" 

 –George Hodel, the physician who is widely suspected of killing Elizabeth Short. From 1945, the surgeon was investigated for the unexplained murders of several young girls but nothing was ever proven. With an IQ of 187, he was a certified genius and spent the majority of his time scamming patients out of large quantities of money and even performing illegal abortions. In 1950, three years after the murder of Elizabeth Short, Hodel and his wife unexpectedly moved to China. After his death in 1999, his son Steve (a leading homicide detective), revealed that he had always suspected that his father was the murderer of Short, and firmly believes that she was mutilated in the family bathtub.


19 year old Herne, Germany resident Marcel Hesse was apprehended on March 9th, 2017 for the murder of his 9 year old neighbor Jaden, pictured on the top right. Hesse stabbed Jaden 56 times in a cellar, and proceeded to upload pictures of himself on WhatsApp standing next to the victim, stating that he “killed the neighbours child, doesn’t feel bad tbh, my hands bleed a lil which is the only thing annoying me. Actually wanted to get a girl in here so i can rape her.” Authorities have discovered pictures uploaded on a 4Chan forum as well, showing him with blood on his hands, brandishing a knife, and washing the murder weapon. Hesse also uploaded a video of him carrying out the gruesome act on the dark web for others to enjoy. A dark web user notified the police, which led to a manhunt for the killer. Reports indicate that after the murder, Hesse went over to his friend’s house, identified as 22 year old Christopher W., and spent the night there. The next morning, Christopher confronted Hesse about the manhunt, causing Hesse to stab him 68 times as well as set fire to his home. The killer was ultimately caught when he walked into a fast food restaurant and shouted “call the police, I’m wanted.” Hesse is a martial arts fanatic and was rejected by the German army due to his instability. Authorities claim he has a “lust to kill” and that he appeared “extremely ice-cold, emotionless.” As described by his sister, he is an “absolute psycho.” Hesse apparently stated that he had originally wanted to take his own life, but decided to murder so he could end up in jail.


Satanic Murder
Jarno Elg

On the 21st of November 1998 in Finland, Jarno Elg, 17 year old girl Terhi Tervashonka, Mika Riska and a 16 year old boy brutally tortured, murdered and dismembered and ate an unnamed 23 year old male. The gang went to the home and strangled him to death, then dissected his body parts for a satanic ritual whilst listening to Norweigan black metal band Ancient’s album, The Cainian Chronicle.

A leg was found at a local dumpsite prompting the investigation authorities labelled, “The Dumpsite Murder”

This case was labelled one of the worst in Finnish history, in detail information has been sealed for 40 years.

During trial, Tervashonka was declared legally insane

Jarno Elg was sentenced to life
Terhi Tervashonka served a few years before being released in 2003
Mika Riska served 2 years

In 2007, Tervashonka murdered again and received a 10 year sentence


Urban legends are as popular as ever, but the majority of the scary stories you’ve heard at sleepovers are based on at least a small grain of truth. One such tale that might have kept you awake at night is The Babysitter and the Man Upstairs, which tells of a young child-minder’s gruesome encounter with a crazed stalker. There are many adaptions of this 1960′s legend, with the general story line being that the babysitter receives several creepy phone calls from a man who keeps telling her to check on the children. Terrified, she calls the police who trace the call to the upstairs bathroom of the house. When the intruder is finally arrested, he has slaughtered all three children. While spine-tingling, you may be intrigued to know that this fictional story came from the very real murder of 15-year-old Janett Christman in 1950.

Janett was babysitting 3-year-old Gregory Romack at his home on West Boulevard and Stewart Road in Columbia, Missouri. At around 1:30 a.m, while Gregory was sleeping, and intruder entered through his bedroom window and proceeded to the downstairs living room where he raped, strangled and stabbed Janett. The crime scene was utterly horrific: the bottom picture is one of the less bloody photographs. Although a garden hose left outside was used to break the window, forensic investigators reported that the furniture and light fixtures near the window were totally undisturbed, making it impossible for him to have entered that way. This is likely to infer that the murderer attempted to make it look like the house had been broken into, when in reality, Christman probably opened the front door for someone she knew.

This case remains unsolved, with it’s prime suspect passing lie detector tests and successfully suing the police for his detainment.

Damon Smith, a 20-year-old with Asperger’s, has been found guilty of making or possessing an explosive substance with intent to endanger life after he left a home-made bomb on the London tube.

Smith was described as being “fascinated with bombs and guns” from an early age, however his fascination turned dangerous when he reached the age of 19. After reading about bombs on google, he bought a £2 clock and attached an explosive devise to it. He then boarded an underground train at rush hour and left his rucksack behind. Thinking that it had been left behind, a passenger gave the bag to the train driver who immediately spotted protruding wires and a timer. The bomb was filled with shrapnel and nails, and could have caused “astronomical” damage.

16 year old Canadian Nickolas Bullock had problems with holding back his aggression from a young age. He was known to bully others at school, and as the years went by, his behavior became worse. Eventually, he began skipping school and abusing drugs and alcohol. Nickolas moved from his mother’s house to his father’s house and then to his friends’ homes, and when he was no longer able to live with them anymore, his uncle brought him in, making him promise to go to school and stop drinking; however, when he broke these promises, he was kicked out. This would cause him to develop a deep hatred for his entire family, who he threatened to kill. On March 9, 2006, Nickolas lured his 13 year old cousin Brayton into a ravine and stabbed him 13 times in the back, chest, neck, and head. The attack was so brutal that the knife was able to fracture his skull and end up in his brain. Nickolas then walked over to a nearby recreation center to wash off his blood-soaked hands as well as throw the knife in the garbage, where he would leave behind his DNA. Psychologists claimed that he was a budding psychopath, showing no signs of empathy or remorse for his crime. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years. 

Motives to Kill

What Compels Killers to Kill?

Chronically Aggressive Individuals

  • Easily frustrated, limited or poor impulse control
  • Frequently express anger or hostility
  • Resents authority, defiant with supervisors.
  • May express hostility through “passive-aggressive” behavior
  • Believes violence and/or aggression are legitimate responses to various interpersonal problems in life (i.e., if someone provokes you, you fight back)
  • Although they might never admit it, pleasure or reinforcement is derived from the expression of anger (i.e., it feels good to blow someone off; it makes you feel alive; it gives you a sense of power)
  • Often display the characteristics of a “stimulus seeker” - they engage in bold, fearless, or reckless behavior and are prone towards substance abuse
  • Most typically, violence occurs in a situational context: an offense, fight, or disagreement
  • Sometimes just get carried away in a particular situation (domestic violence, child battering)
  • Less likely to engage in acts of unexpected “explosive” violence

The Over-Controlled Hostility Type

  • Rarely display or express anger - they don’t cuss or yell, and may be offended by such
  • Emotionally rigid and inflexible: appear to be polite, serious, and sober, rarely “loose” or jocular
  • Cognitively rigid and inflexible: very strict about interpreting rules; usually go for the letter, rather than the spirit of the law
  • Morally righteous and upstanding: see themselves as “good people”
  • Often judgmental: see others as “not such good people”
  • Non-assertive or passive; their passivity causes others to take advantage of them
  • Anger builds up like in a pressure cooker, before they explode
  • After the violence, people say that they never expected it, “he always seemed like such a nice guy; he was always so quiet”

The Hurt and Resentful

  • Feel that people walk on them and that they are never treated fairly
  • When they are passed over, there is always someone else to blame
  • Things are easier for everyone else: other people get more and have more advantages.
  • They do not accept criticism well
  • In response to reprimands, they develop grudges, which are sometimes deeply held
  • They are often whiners and complainers, as a matter of attitude
  • They wallow in their victimization and are psychologically impotent
  • Violence occurs because they hold grudges and are “impotent” to deal with their anger in other ways

The Traumatized

  • Aggression occurs in response to a single, massive assault on their identity
  • Something happens that is potently offensive, absolutely intolerable, and which strips them of all sense of personal power
  • The essence of their existence (or their manhood) will be destroyed if they do not respond
  • Violence is predictable & preventable

The Obsessive

  • Immature and narcissistic individuals who demand or crave attention and affection
  • Absolutely cannot stand to be deprived of desired gratifications, like a baby who cries because mother removes the breast
  • When deprived of love, they continue crying: repeated phone calls, following the object of their obsession, etc.
  • As frustration continues, they escalate: “dead flowers”, punctured tires, suicide gestures
  • Violence because: “if I can’t have her, nobody can.” … or: “if she won’t have me, she won’t have anything.”

The Paranoid

  • Jealous Type: Delusionally believes their lover is unfaithful
  • Persecuted Type: Delusionally believes that people are out to get him
  • Typically engage in behaviors which make their paranoid beliefs come true
  • Delusions may reach the point at which the person is grossly out of contact with reality (may be insane).

The Insane

  • Rare: does not understand the nature and quality of their actions.
  • More typical: fundamental misperceptions of reality, incapable of rational behavior, delusional beliefs deprive them of the ability to know that their behavior is wrong, beliefs and perceptions are incongruent with reality.
  • Twisted, psychotic beliefs about what is right, what is wrong, and what is necessary.

The Just Plain Bad & Angry

  • A combination of most of the above (except for insane): angry, hostile, jealous, resentful, impotent, and disturbed individuals, who are socially isolated, socially inadequate, and who feel worthless
  • May be seeking attention
  • May be seeking revenge
