“ No apparent intelligence, nothing we can argue with. Just a plant with an appetite. “

- “ We think a single petal slipped in through a crack in space-time, just last night, and look how it’s proliferated. And it’s not stopping. Doubled, doubled, doubled again… “
- “ They don’t burn, you can’t mulch them, melt them with acid, poison them with pesticide. Meanwhile, they eat living tissue and multiply. That’s it. That’s all they do. “

Harvey Glatman was known as the Lonely Hearts Killer,  and executed his crimes in and around LA during the 1950s when he posed as a professional photographer and bachelor looking for love. Glatman killed Judith Dull (left), 19, after booking a fake modeling gig with her at his house. He raped and murdered Shirley Ann Bridgeford (right), 24, after meeting her through The Lonely Hearts Club dating service and taking her “for a drive” to the remote countryside where he forced her to undress before strangling her to death.

As a child, Glatman’s family doctor told his parents that he would “grow out of” his sadomasochistic tendencies, which included choking himself with ropes at the age of 12 and molesting women as a teenager. Despite multiple arrests for molestation and muggings and a diagnosis as a psychopath, Glatman was paroled for his exceptionally good behavior while in prison. He eventually moved to LA, where his career as a fake photographer took off. He made three women murder victims and was caught trying to kill a third when he was arrested and willingly confessed, leading to his execution by gas chamber in 1959.

Pictured above is Raymond Fernandez and Martha Beck, who together were known as the Lonely Hearts Killers. The pair met through a Lonely Hearts ad after Fernandez had started a criminal career robbing women who he would meet through the ads. Beck was more than happy to join him in this venture, although her jealousy towards the women targeted resulted in angry and violent outbursts that lead to a number of their deaths. In one instance she smashed a woman’s head in with a hammer when she discovered her in bed with Fernandez.

The pair were tried for 3 murders, although they may have killed more than 17 women. They were both convicted of murder and executed on 8th of March, 1951. Martha Beck’s final words were:

“My story is a love story. But only those tortured by love can know what I mean. Imprisonment in the Death House has only strengthened my feeling for Raymond….”
