Dexter Copycat Killer
On the 10th of October 2009 in Canada, John Altinger was about to meet a woman he had met on dating site, Plenty Of Fish. However he was about to meet Mark Twitchell. Upon arrival Altinger was knocked out, stabbed to death then dismembered . Graphically he was decapitated and enjoyed using his head a puppet.
Twitchell was a budding filmmaker and described himself like fictional serial killer Dexter Morgan. On Twitchell’s laptop, authorities found a document labelled “SKConfessions”, SK stood for serial killer. One entry was “I grabbed his jaw with my gloved hand and moved it while making a funny voice to make it look like it was talking, and chuckled to myself at the total silliness of it all”. The story was deemed to graphic for it to be fully shown to the jury.
The story also described his first failed attempt at murder. This was true and the man was called Gilles Tetreault who had also been lured from the dating site. However he fought back when he got to Twitchell’s garage and managed to escape.
