On August 31, 1888, at about 3:40 am, Charles Cross and Robert Paul were walking down Bucksrow in London, England on a cool Friday morning. At the end of the alleyway, they noticed a bundle of blankets. When the two men kept walking, they noticed that bundle was not just blankets, but the body of Maryann Nichols, a prostitute that worked the Whitechapel area. She had her throat slashed and had been disemboweled. She seemed to have been only dead about a half hour, meaning that her killer was probably still in the area.
Between 1947-1951 he began robbing graves of middle aged women who reminded him of his mother. Taking their body parts. Though he never sexually abused the corpses, his compulsions for dead human flesh classifies him as a necrophiliac. Ed’s upbringing and the seclusion from others by his mother’s deceit and fanatic religious practices influenced his behavior greatly. He never had a girlfriend or a wife, so he was not good with women.
Jack the City History is fraught with serial killers that committed unbelievable crimes. One of the most celebrated and commercialized is called Jack The Riper. Jack the Ripper is not the most notorious, successful or the first serial killer the world saw. Yet a lot of people consider him to be the godfather of the whole concept of serial killers. One of those killers, who easily outran Jack the Ripper is Herman Webster Mudgett, better known as H. H. Holmes, who bought and renovated a building in Chicago thus transforming it into a hotel where he killed foreigners, mainly women but also men and children during the World 's Columbian Exposition in 1893.
In order to become affiliated with the Crime Family, Kuklinski had to participate in an initiation ("Richard Kuklinski The Iceman Mafia Hitman HBO Interview 2001 (Part 1)"). Roy Demo told Kuklinski all he had to do was kill an innocent man they seen walking his dog, to which he agreed (Richard Kuklinski The Iceman Mafia Hitman HBO Interview 2001 (Part 1)”). When the man walked by Kuklinski, he shot him and left his lifeless body lying on the sidewalk (
Male serial killers tend to use “hands-on” methods like shooting, strangling, suffocating, stabbing, or bludgeoning their victims with knives, blunt objects, and even their own hands to kill (Keeney and Heidi 385 and Hickey qtd. in Hinch and Hepburn). Not only are male serial killers more violent when killing, but also in the time prior to the kill. It is not uncommon for the males to torture the victim before death, or to defile the body after death.
Edmund Kemper was a serial killer who was known for the murdering of his grandparents, his mother and her friend, and six female hitchhikers. During his childhood, there were many early signs of violence and criminality. Kemper was said to have a “dark fantasy life” and would often dream about killing his own mother when he was younger (Biography.com Editors). Furthermore, Kemper participated in the act of animal torturing at a very young age. When he was ten years old, Kemper “buried a pet cat alive; once it died, he dug it up, decapitated it and mounted its head on a spike”.
The victim had no shirt or pants on, and there was a slice on the back of his neck and the back of his left leg. There was also the rope used to tie him up, which could not be identified by trace analysts because they had never seen it before. He wiped his knife clean on Eberle’s shirt, and left the
conforms to and frustrates what we traditionally expect from the genre. Poe shaped the genre of detective fiction - although he preferred to call them “tales of ratiocination” - after introducing Detective C. Auguste Dupin. Dupin analyses unsolved mysteries and uses his advanced cognitive ability to deduce information to solve cases; thus, a new genre was born. To describe how Poe’s short stories both comply with the general expectations of detective fiction and how they defy them, I plan to examine The Murders in the Rue Morgue and The Purloined Letter.
