2 Serial Killers and Ways of Killing Mrs.Stubbs-Mesumbe Business Law 1 Saul Martinez November 28,2016 For my term paper I am doing 2 serial killers that murdered people and even children. Those 2 serial killers are Arthur Shawcross and Ted Bundy. Arthur Shawcross admitted that he murdered 12 female prostitutes in New York. He also sexually assaulted a 10 year old boy and murdered him after luring him into the woods. He then raped and killed an eight year old girl, and was convicted of manslaughter.
I was just cleaning up the place a bit.” Jack the Ripper, a serial killer infamous a hundred years before, influenced the method of operations of Peter Sutcliffe, a modern day serial killer. Peter Sutcliffe killed mostly prostitutes and a few that weren’t, he drove himself to kill thirteen women and attempting to murder seven others. Sutcliffe had previously used services of prostitutes in Leeds and Bradford (Cobb). His outbreak of violence towards them seems to have occurred because a prostitute conned
Wournos, and one of her alliances were tracked down later after her killings from palm and fingerprints on a missing man 's car (Bio editors 2). She eventually was convicted of that man’s killing, but she said it was in self defense (“ABC news” 2). Wuornos eventually gave up and said that the self defense was a lie and wanted to pay for her crimes through death (“ABC news” 2). Wournos got what she asked for. She was sentenced to death by lethal injection on October 9th, 2002 (“ABC news” 1).
I just want to go somewhere and disappear..” Dahmer’s 1st victim was Steven Hicks who was murdered at the age of 19 at Bath Township in June of 1978. Dahmer got Hicks drunk and then hit him with a dumbbell and finally strangled him. He then took a carving knife to dismember the body. He later pulverized the bones with a sledgehammer and scattered the bones around the property. The flesh was put into bags and buried in a crawl space under the house.
In “Thirty-Eight Who Saw Murder Didn’t Call the Police,” Martin Gansberg recites the murder of Catherine “Kitty” Genovese in 1964. Gansberg explains how Catherine was murdered outside of her very populated apartment complex and how 38 people who witnessed the murder, did nothing to stop it. A crime scene reconstruction done by the police revealed that the attacker made three attempts to kill Catherine. The police found that as Catherine stepped out of her car after a late night at work, she noticed a man standing at the other side of the parking lot. As she was hurrying her way to her apartment, the man grabbed Catherine and proceeded to stab her.
James Hanratty was convicted and hanged on 4th April 1962, accused of abducting and murdering a research scientist named Michael Gregsten (aged 36) on the A6 (Bedfordshire) where he was shot twice in the head.

Having survived after this horrific experience, Valarie Storie was paralysed from the waist down. Hanratty aged 25, was established at first to be a minor criminal who had spent several years in prison. In October Hanratty was arrested in Blackpool.
“THE LIZZIE BORDEN CASE” On August 4, 1892, Andrew and Abby Borden were murdered in their home in Fall River, Massachusetts. Lizzie Borden convicted of the murder and arrested on August 11, 1892. It seems obvious that Lizzie committed the crime due to the evidence provided, family problems and, the brutal nature of the murder. Lizzie and her family had problems, which means this could have led Lizzie to murder her parents. Lizzie was not in a close relationship with her stepmother, Lizzie was worried that Abby Borden’s family was after her father’s money.
One detective assigned to the case told the family to look around their house to see if they found anything amiss, which was approximately eight hours after Patsy notified the police (Brennan, 2013). John Ramsey and a family friend found JonBenets’ body in a little room off of the boiler room in their basement (Brennan, 2013). JonBenet was found with her favourite white blanket covering her with duct tape across her mouth and a ligature buried deep in her neck made by a garrote fashioned from cord and a broken paintbrush taken from her mother’s art supplies (Brennan, 2013). The same cord was loosely bound around her right wrist. John took JonBenets’ body upstairs yelling and ripping off the duct tape.
In my opinion from reading the conviction of Hiawatha Robinson case, I honestly think that he was guilty of the murder of his 8- year old daughter Hiawayi. The FBI and police had gathered so much information on Hiawatha that they could finally charge him of 1st degree murder of his daughter. The FBI had fingerprints, phone records, and even witnesses saying that Hiawatha was the last person to see his daughter alive. To murder your own daughter I think you have to be heartless and evil, especially a child he age of eight. Everyone expects Robinson to be sentenced to life in prison, meaning if he was eligible for parole he would get it after spending 24 years in prison first.
In April 1980, four murdered children were uncovered by a flood and after the flood, he was arrested for attempting to abduct a young girl and went to prison. When he got in the prison, he was telling his cellmates all the crimes he did. Later he confesses to over three hundred murders; this is what made police think that most of the uncovered young girls found in the flood were his
This book is about a women named Jennifer Thompson-Cannino and a man named Ronald Cotton. In July of 1984, Jennifer Cannino who was twenty-two at the time, was raped at knifepoint in her Elon University apartment. She managed to get away and after some time, identify her attacker as Ronald Cotton. In the courts Cotton time and time again reiterated that Thompson-Cannino was mistaken in her serious accusations against him but because she was so positive that she was successful in identifying him as her attacker, police decided this was enough evidence to put Cotton behind bars. After close to eleven years in prison, Cotton was granted with the ability to take a DNA test that ended up proving his innocence.
Accused Again – Steven Avery Steven Avery was accused of the ruthless murder of Teresa Halbach. She was on the Avery property to take photos of Steven’s van which he wanted to sell. Over the next few hours, she was ‘apparently’ murdered and her body burned. Only a few short days after this, the unreliable Manitowoc Police Department charged Steven Avery with Halbach’s murder. After following and studying the case, I am convinced that Steven is innocent, and has been framed for Halbach’s murder.
The night she called the cops and got slapped for it. The night that she lost all of her friends. On page 74 when she talks about "its face" she 's referring to her rapist, Andy (Beast) Evans. Those two quotes connect because she was raped by "IT" on "that night." "It" meaning Andy on the night of the party.
After an extensive autopsy, it was found that Hae was strangled to her death. Shortly after researching the case, Hae’s ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, was accused, and convicted of the murder.

The corpse of a woman named Dawn Marie Birnbaum was discovered by a motorist. When the investigators arrived to the scene, they noticed that the victim was strangled and they also discovered a set of tire tracks leading away from the dump stop. These tracks were later determined to be left by a large truck or semi. During the autopsy of the body, not only it was confirmed that the victim was raped, but also two strands of black hair were discovered amongst the victim’s blonde hair. Investigators discovered that this murder was similar to the murder of eight other women that had been found near Ohio interstate truck stops, all of them being strangled and raped.
