This paper will focus on three in particular; Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gracy, and the team killers of Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris. Case One: Jeffrey Dahmer I was watching an episode of American Horror Story Hotel and one of the episodes featured past serial killers. One of which was Jeffery Dahmer. The way the presented him made me curious.
Jeffrey Dahmer was a famous murderer from 1978 until 1991. During the time he was free he killed seventeen men by meeting them at gay bars, bus stops, and other places, promising them sex or money if they followed him home. Upon arriving to his house Jeffrey would give them drugs that were laced with alcohol before suffocating them to death.

The Murder of Emmett Till “What else could I do, he thought he was as good as any white man.” This quote by J.W. Milan, one of Emmett Till’s killers, shows how deeply ingrained racism was in the 1960’s. Emmett Till was brutally murdered at only fourteen.

However, Hitchcock has played a little bit more and twisted the plot that the traces on Edward’s corpse, after investigation, still showed that John was the killer. With Dr. Brulov suggesting to accept the reality and start a new life, everything seemed to be gloomy. But guess what? Hitch has twisted it again. After Constance returned to the asylum, she found out the inconsistency of Dr. Murchison’s speech and discovered the true devil, using psychoanalysis to get away thereafter.

Thomas Rogers, on the other hand, does need that punishment because nothing has happened yet. ¨There was never a word against us.
