A note left on the wall by serial killer William Heirens (more commonly known as the lipstick killer) at the scene of the murder of his second victim Frances Brown (33).

Harry S. Truman was the President of the United States when Lipstick Killer William Heirens first confessed to his crimes. He then spent 65 years in prison for the serial killing of three women in the Chicago area before dying in March 2012 age 83.

The victims of Heirens were Josephine Ross, Frances Brown and six year old Suzanne Degnan. Josephine Ross had her face covered before being stabbed to death. Frances Brown was shot and stabbed to death. Suzanne Degnan was dismembered.

The Lipstick Killer appeared to have an uncontrollable urge to attack and kill women. Although Heirens was convicted of the Lipstick Killer murders he later recanted his initial confession to police claiming he was coerced into confessing by police brutality. However, it was recorded that the Lipstick Killer urinated and defecated in the apartments of the women he murdered - which Heirens also did in the apartments he burgled prior.

I’ve never seen the TCC commemorate victims. Here.

“He was probably the most efficient killing machine that we’ve seen amongst the serial killers we’ve studied. With his ability to articulate how he made certain choices, why he let certain people live and die, he’s become a standard by which other serial killers are measured.”

- FBI Profiler William Hagmaier on Ted Bundy, who he interviewed and studied while he was on death row.


A memorial service was carried out for the nine unidentified victims of serial killer John Wayne Gacy, the majority of which were unearthed from Gacy’s crawlspace, although one was found buried in his backyard. 

The first of these victims to be identified was Timothy Jack McCoy, who happened to be Gacy’s first murder victim. He was identified in 1986, 8 years after Gacy had been apprehended. The next of these unknown victims wouldn’t be identified until 2011, whenever DNA testing revealed the identity of William George Bundy, who had been only 19 years old when he went missing on his way to a part in 1976. Finally, in 2017 another victim was identified, this was 16 year old James Haakenson, who had last spoken to his family in 1976. 

After the police obtained full DNA profiles of the unidentified bodies they were able to put them to good use, confirming the identification of two victims, excluding the possibility of other missing teenagers from that time period being the victims, and closing four unrelated cold cases. They have not, however, managed to identify all of Gacy’s 33 confirmed victims, and a further 6 remain unknown.

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart announced Wednesday that his office has identified a teenager who vanished in the 1970s as a victim of serial killer John Wayne Gacy.
The Cook County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release that the victim was James Byron Haakenson, a 16-year-old who ran away from Minnesota. The teenager’s remains were among those of more than two dozen young men found in the crawl space of Gacy’s Chicago area home in 1978 and one of eight who were buried without being identified.

In 2011, Sheriff Tom Dart ordered the bodies exhumed and asked relatives of young men who vanished between 1970 and Gacy’s 1978 arrest to submit saliva samples to compare their DNA with that of the victims.
Haakenson is the second of the eight to be identified. Months after the exhumations, Dart announced that one of the victims had been identified as William George Bundy, a 19-year-old construction worker.

Gacy is remembered as one of history’s most bizarre killers, largely because of his work as an amateur clown. He was convicted of killing 33 young men, sometimes luring them to his Chicago-area home for sex by impersonating a police officer or promising them construction work. He was executed in 1994.

A book bound in the skin of 19th century murderer William Burke, who, along with his accomplice, William Hare, killed 16 people in 1828, in Scotland. Burke and Hare sold the corpses of their victims to Doctor Robert Knox for his dissections and anatomy lessons. The book is kept on display in Surgeons’ Hall Museum in Edinburgh.

…I remember all of us, while walking through Death Row, looking through a window and watching Ted Bundy run around and around in circles on a basketball court. He was wearing orange running shorts and nothing else. It was hot that day. Summertime hot.
Around and around he went, laughing and talking with fellow inmates.
There we were, surrounded by murderers, and the one who captured our attention was Ted Bundy.

John Williams, editor of the Lakeland Ledger, on his visit to Death Row, in an article dated July 5, 1986.

Let’s Talk About Hans

Hey can we talk about Frozen real quick? I know it came out years ago but it’s still worth talking about.

Nearly everyone has an opinion on Frozen. Like every cultural phenomenon it has gained it’s fair share of praise and the inevitable backlash that comes with hype.

But one of the most divisive aspects of the film is the character of Hans and his arc.

Spoilers for the four people who still haven’t seen this movie (go see it. It actually is very good even if maybe not the best thing ever).

Hans is first introduced to us as your generic dime-a-dozen Disney Prince. He’s handsome and charming but just goofy enough to be endearing and he seems to fall in love with Princess Anna at first sight. Also he has a horse sidekick. A lot of Disney leading men have those for some reason. Seriously, think about it.

But in the last act, all this changes. It turns out Hans was evil all along, only manipulating Anna’s feelings for his own personal gain. He plans to assassinate Queen Elsa and take the throne for himself. A (mostly) light-hearted Disney fairy tale turns chilling (pun not intended) as Hans callously leaves Anna to die and tricks Elsa into thinking she killed her. Her worst childhood fear seemingly realized, Elsa breaks and collapses sobbing on the ice as Hans looms over her, brandishing a sword and grinning with satanic glee.

This twist comes out of nowhere and we are given no warning that could be picked up on a first-time viewing. Only by re-watching the film can we see the subtle but present hints that the animators and writers slipped under our noses. This device has been criticized as a forced shock value cheat slapped on at the last minute and not without reason.

But the surprising treachery and deceit of Hans carries an important cautionary message. Through Hans we learn that there are people in this world whose sole purpose is to hurt other people. They may have complex motivations or they may simply get off on it but they exist, and the important thing to realize is this: we will not know these people. They will not look the part. They will not twirl mustaches or laugh wickedly or betray any outward signs of depravity. They will look and behave just like anyone else. They will be faces in the crowd. Some (like Hans) will even be handsome and charming and capable of surface-level kindness or bravery. Ted Bundy. Russel Williams. Bill Cosby. Hans. They are predators lying in wait for naive and lonely people. People like Anna. People like many young girls growing up today and tomorrow. But through the character of Hans, Frozen shows them that these people exist, that they could be anywhere. It’s an uncomfortable but extremely important message, especially for the social media generation. One that deserves to be discussed as much as the film’s other themes of sisterhood, mental illness and psychological abuse.

Cautionary tales are an important part of the fairy tale tradition and I hope to see more of them from Disney in the future.

“Nice is different than good.”
-Red Ridinghood, Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim



1973- Kathy Devine was just 15 years old when she went missing from her home in Seattle. She was last seen hitchhiking to Oregon, trying to run away from home. Her remains were found just days later. She had been strangled, sodomised and her throat was viciously cut open.

Given the circumstances of the murder, most people (including police) assumed the murderer was the serial killer who had been terrorising the state known as “Ted” aka Ted Bundy. However, 28 years later, DNA evidence revealed the truth.

Kathy’s actual murderer was William E. Cosden Jr. (above) Cosden had been released in 1973 from a mental hospital where he was confined after the 1967 murder of a woman. Samples from Cosden were subjected to DNA testing. It was evidence which linked Cosden to Kathy Devine. Cosden, 55, did admit to having sex with Kathy, but denied killing her. Already serving a 48 year sentence for first degree rape, it is unlikely that he will ever be free.
