“FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE, CATCH ME BEFORE I KILL MORE. I CANNOT CONTROL MYSELF.”
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.
