Cullen and Capote both wrote stories that depicted two very similar settings. They both inform us about murders that happen in places that you wouldn 't think could happen.

Eric and Dick both had plans to kill.

Johnny was known to be shy in many ways. As the book states him in the beginning on page 14, "Johnny wouldn't open his mouth unless he was forced to." He felt unsafe like an outcast in his family because his mother often ignores him and his father often abused him. Ever since then, he never talked to anybody, not even his gang in which he felt safe. Until that night in the movie theater Johnny with his friend Ponyboy, with two Socials named Sherri (Cherry) Valance and her friend Marcia, will forever make him talk especially Ponyboy's retelling them about how Johnny gets beaten up by the "four Socials in a blue Mustang while getting
In the article “Two British Boys”, by William E. Schmidt, James Bulger, who was two years old, was murdered. In the hour before the ruthless murder where they beat him with stones, bricks, and metal, they intentionally lied to concerned civilians who approached the two boys as they dragged a screaming James Bulger down the sidewalk. “Some passers-by did intervene on James 's behalf, only to be told by the boys that James was either a younger brother or a lost child they were taking to a nearby police station. When one woman challenged that explanation, telling the boys they were walking away from the police station, one said they had been wrongly sent that way by someone else.”(Schmidt, 10). They lied to these citizens because they knew what
John Wayne Gacy, also known as, “Pogo the Clown” became one of America’s most infamous serial killer. During the years of 1968-1978, Gacy was recognized for sexually assaulting 33 young males. The ages of Gacy’s victims varied from the age fourteen to the age of twenty-one (“John Wayne Gacy,” n.d.). Gacy demanded sexual favors from each of his victims before he killed them. Once Gacy sexually assaulted his victims, he buried them in his backyard.
As to say Stone’s study was not only based on the Kraft’s research but he also based it on 150 Serial Killers who manifested sadistic behaviors, out of those 150 serial killers 47.3% had committed more than 3 homicides with sexual acts. A perfect male example when dealing with sadism is David Parker Ray “Toy Box Killer”. Unfortunately he was raised in a broken home where he was repeatedly abused by his father who later abandoned him. By the age of 13 he began fantasizing about torturing women by using bondage and other sexual acts. As time progressed he would reach “orgasm when masturbating only by fantasizing murdering a women” (Stone, p.144), by the time he reached adulthood, he decide to build a torture chamber later known as the Toy Box.
John Wayne Gacy is a cruel serial killer. Looking at the murders of Gacy is enough to keep a fearless man awake at night. Gacy was a murderer in the making. “Gacy was born March 17, 1942, in Chicago, Illinois to an alcoholic, often abusive World War I Veteran and a homemaker.” Gacy’s cruel murders stemmed from, not only pure evil, but also from his childhood. Gacy was often beat with a razor strop for anything that was seen as wrong in his father’s eyes.
Tell-Tale Heart is about a man who was crazy and he killed an old man because of his evil eye.Then he shows the police where he hid the old man’s body. I strongly believe that Tell-Tale Heart is not appropriate for middle schoolers because it tells you about killing people and hiding the evidence. Tell-Tale Heart shouldn’t be read in middle school because it teaches us how to murder people.On page 93 its talks about him replacing the floor boards so cleverly from the police but he then confesses that he killed the old man and put him under the floorboards. The Narrator was a madman- well some call him that- and I call him a madman because he watched the old man take naps and watched him
In particular the name that comes up is H.H. Holmes, a notorious serial killer who murdered countless young women during the time of the fair, and could be sourced as a downfall in society. Yet, the actions of one man can not be the portrayal of numerous good deeds and positive advancements for the majority of the citizens. There are sick minded people throughout all points in history, and from the eventual arrest and interrogation of Holmes, we as a culture gained insight to the psyche of a deranged man: “...the vague humanness was missing...They later adopted the term “psychopath”...”(Larson 87). Basing modern psychology of the psychotic mind from first cases such as Holmes, is a reason many more killers have been caught or prevented in modern society, and while he was a stain to humanity at the time, he did not ruin the collective robustness of the American
