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.
George Hodel and was believed to be The Black Dahlia killer. In the coming years a retired LAPD detective named Steve Hodel became curious after finding a picture of a girl he’d believed was Elizabeth Short among the keepings of his father Dr. George Hodel (Pruitt). In fact, Steve came to believe that his father used his medical expertise to kill and disfigure Short and other victims before fleeing to Asia in the 1950s (Pruitt). Finally, While searching for evidence on Dr. George Hill Hodel’s house where they used they used a police dog named Buster with a great sense of smell and Buster detected the scent of human decomposition in many areas of his father 's basement (Black Dahlia). The most convincing evidence is an old recording of a conversation between Hodel and an unknown person which Hodel states “ Supposin I did kill the Black Dahlia.

Lovecraft and Cthulhu. This terrifying novel sets the mood of the horrific thing that Holmes has commited, Watson finds his friend in an alleyway butchering the corpse of a man to then realise that his heart has been taken out. This sign shows this is the opposite of typical Sherlock, this is a sign of possible mind altering. Holmes then grins at Watson in such an evil way that it gives the doctor thoughts of putting his gun under his pillow. 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.
Erstwhile in the era that it was made, entire nations grappled with the meaning of human life. If men could be slaughtered so effectively, so willfully, so carelessly as they were in World War 1, did life hold any value or virtue at all? Cesare embodied homecoming soldiers, asleep until awakened by their masters to prophesize death, and then commit murder. He was a curiosity of the human mind, a being that understood Dr. Caligari is arguably the first modern horror movie. It wielded the anxiety of its era as a
Jamie walks in finding that all the staff dead, killed by poisonous gas. Jamie continues searching to find a highly-technological torture chamber with a vampire inside named Ted Ellison, lying dead on a table, with many of his organs gouged from his body. Jamie moves further through the labs, finding professor Talbot standing with Matt Browning in his grasp, and a gun to his head. Talbot begins to state how he was trying to make vampires immune to sunlight (so they don’t die when in contact of sunlight), and how he gave away the map with motion sensors so that vampires could navigate their way through the forest. Jamie then pulls out his gun, he shoots and kills Talbot before he was done talking.
The mode of murder was clearly intended to keep the victim alive over a long process. The reason being is that Montresor believes that the way Fortunato would die is comparable to his own feelings. Montresor stated: “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge.” All of the bricks laid one-by-one across Fortunato is symbolic of Fortunato’s insults against Montresor. Just as Montresor had to stand numerous insults, Fortunato literally stands and watches as he is slowly smothered by hundreds of bricks.
Doctors would know the ins and outs of all vital organs. This would open pathways to causing instant death if they ever decided to stab or shoot someone. The deadliest weapon, after all, would have to be the human brain. It was suspected that Jack the Ripper, an unidentified serial killer in 1888, had some form of medical training. This was strictly based off the precision and attention to detail with which some of the organs were removed from his victims.
One such hero is the “amazing”, “spectacular”, “sensational”, “superior”, and “friendly neighborhood” Spider-Man. In 1977, an issue of The Amazing Spider-Man was published that featured a plot point involving the villainous Kingpin put an electronic tracking device into Spider-Man’s web-shooters, which are designed to look like bracelets. This miniscule plot point in a throw-away issue of the long-running series got into the hands of New Mexico judge Jack Love, who was inspired by the concept. He went to his friend, a computer salesman and technician, Michael Gross. In 1983, their collaboration resulted in ankle monitor bracelets.
Billy, after surviving the dreadful events of the novel that far, was just as traumatized by Lazzaro’s story of revenge against a dog. Similarly, he later reminisces about “the poor old high school teacher, Edgar Derby,” who was caught “with a teapot he had taken from the catacombs” before being “tried and shot” (Vonnegut 274). These parallels of Pilgrim and Vonnegut highlight the events of both men 's lives,
sion, Lizzie had several reasons to kill her stepmom and dad. The crime scene is another thing that hints Lizzie killed her stepmom and dad. For example, the placement of them is very weird. Andrew was laying on a couch with 11 whacks to his face; Abby was found lying in the floor with 18 whacks to her face, but everything around them was in place (Linder, 2004).
