The Cook County Circuit Court documents refer to John Wayne Gacy as the Killer Clown (John). He is one of the most notorious serial killers in United States history. Many serial killers blend in to society because they are the type of person who can go through the motions of ordinary living while acting out against others without giving themselves away (Ramsland 178). Gacy was no exception; while he was busy burying young men under his home he was also running a contractor business, throwing fundraiser as the Democratic precinct captain, in the Chicago suburbs, and entertaining sick children as Pogo the Clown (178). Gacy’s seemingly normal lifestyle to the public was far from the reality of the secret life he lead as a serial killer, taking the life of thirty three young men from 1972 to 1978.
How do you make a dead baby float? One cup of root beer and two scoops of dead baby. Although death can be disturbing and isn’t something that is normally joked about, there are people out there who enjoy killing others, usually in messed up ways. Many times, these people are serial killers. The FBI defines a serial killer as “someone who kills two or more victims in separate events.” Serial killers are complicated people, and there are many characteristics, motives, and examples of serial killers throughout America’s history.
But the problem was while the two cases are similar in their gruesomeness, there was no clue to link them together except for a teasing email he stumbles upon. He sets out to find the brutal killer before he can take out more victims. He does not succeed as even more victims are discovered every few days. What follows is an intriguing story of murder as Fable tracks down a man that leaves behind no clues
What this implies is that Sherlock Holmes, has at least, lost his mind throughout the years of vigilantism and committed butchery, almost surgery, to an innocent man. Holmes is part of the definition of evil in this case due to the fact he has done what he swore to defeat, he has created the crime and has left the clues. After the events that unfolded, there is seamlessly a man hunt for the detective for the horrendous act of murder he has done. This definitely does not show the qualifications of a hero for any time period, eighteenth century to now. No hero would in there right or wrong mind conduct a serious crime to the point of a man hunt for his head.
There have been many famous psychopaths throughout history who have gained popularity. A few common known serial killers, or psychopaths, are The Zodiac Killer, John Wayne Gacy, and Belle Gunness. The Zodiac Killer came into action during the 1960s when he began killing random people and taunting the LAPD by writing letters about his kills. He reasoned that hunting humans was much more exhilarating than hunting animals, and in one of his letters he referenced the book The Most Dangerous Game. He was never caught and never heard of after the the mid 1970s.
Chicago was seen by outsiders as a land of opportunity the same way our founding fathers saw America as the land of new beginnings. Individuals all across the nation spoke of Chicago as having a “spirit” of it own and “tangible force” that was similar to the American dream (Larson 16). As people spoke so highly of Chicago and its technology, it still did not escape the criticism from other states about how the city would not be able to handle organizing a World’s fair. When the grounds of the World’s Fair were ere being prepared in Jackson Park, Chicago, the soil was too dense to build extravagant buildings, the architects in charge of creating the buildings for the World’s Fair were surprised with all the extra work needed in order for the foundations of the buildings to be sturdy (Larson

Connecticut State Lottery Case Matthew Beck was born in 1963; no one could have imagined that the Florida Institute of Technology graduate would turn out to be a mass murderer. Described by many as hard-working, intelligent, golf aficionado, not much about him fitted the profile of a serial killer. Regardless of the reason, id he just snap or was his action a result of a long history of “hit or relent”, the results became evident on March 6, 1998. He had “brushed” shoulders with all his victims, and it is most likely that he was seeking revenge. On the said day he came armed with a semi-automatic handgun, a butcher knife, and three clips containing at least 19 rounds each.
