“He saw that he was stone dead. His eye would be trouble no more.” (page 385, Poe) In the horror story “A Tell-Tale Heart,” by Edgar Allan Poe, it revolves around a first-person view of an unnamed narrator. He elaborates on killing an old man for the reason of him having an “eye of a vulture.” After 8 long nights of waiting and planning, the narrator forcefully kills the old man. Additionally, he disassembles the body, hiding each part under the floorboards, thus having the narrator refers to himself as “mad.” The main character should be put into a psychiatric institute and be watched under great surveillance based on the crimes he’s committed and due to his condition. To begin with, the narrator had a very unreasonable motive for killing the old man, in this way he is accredited as a madman.
He spoke to a ghost, and this ghost stated that his father 's death was a murder, by the hand of his uncle, Claudius. "The serpent that did sting thy father 's life now wears his crown." Hamlet was astonished, and then swore vengeance for his father 's death. He then proceeded to try and prove his uncle 's guilt, and then finally kills him while he himself is dying of poisoned wounds inflicted by Laertes during their duel. This left the King dead, and his father 's

On the seemingly quiet eve of the 15th of August, King Duncan of Scotland was assassinated in his sleep. King Duncan was celebrating the death of the vulgar rebel MacDonald at the Thane of Cawdor’s Castle briefly before he was killed. MacDonald was killed by the newly appointed Thane of Cawdor, Macbeth, during combat against the Norwegians. Our sources suggest that as King Duncan was sleeping soundly in his room his ‘ professional’ guards were in an alcohol induced slumber. While they were asleep, on duty, two of King Duncan's very own servants allegedly stabbed Duncan multiple times with daggers as he slept.

It is vastly believed by many people that Hitler actually escaped Germany and fled to Argentina. This conspiracy theory is so widely believed because there have been so many witnesses claiming to see him. There is also stacking substantial evidence supporting the claim that Adolf Hitler did not kill himself and indeed escaped to Argentina to live out the rest of his life in peace. Most people know that Adolf Hitler was a Nazi German dictator that is responsible for the deaths of over seven million Jews back in World War Two in the 1940’s. Many would say that he is solely responsible for World War Two and The Holocaust.
While he is haunted by guilt, Macbeth has to secure his throne by murdering Banquo and Fleance. At the end of the feast which was set up for assassinating Banquo and his son, Macbeth is again terrified by the news that Fleance has fled and Banquo’s ghost will dried blood over his body. He said to the ghost: “Thou canst not say I did it. Never shake/ Thy gory locks at me.” (3.4.51-52) These reactions all showed his ambivalence and the hatred to
Through personal experience or word of mouth, one often hears of those that suffer due to forces outside of their control and influence. One such person would be the titular character Oedipus in the Sophocles’ Oedipus the King. In the play, Oedipus, the king of Thebes, seeks aid for a plague ravaging his city. He finds out that the plague is due to the unsolved murder of the previous king, and so he then seeks the regicide. Through a series of prophecies, Oedipus learns that he himself killed the king, who is his father, and married his mother, the queen.

Sheliah McKinzie had remnants of semen in her vagina and rectum, indications of rape. She died by strangulation and a broken neck.

The article I selected is a hard and harrowing story to hear about Gregory Green, who killed his two stepchildren (Chadney and Kara Allen) in front of the mother, two biological children by asphyxiation (Kara and Kaleigh Green), and tortured his wife (Faith Green). I chose this story, because I continue to see this in the news of parents or a parent killing their children. I cannot begin to fathom the numerous mental health issues that affects these parents. However, I know that Gregory Green was charged in 1991 and sentenced to prison for murdering his pregnant wife and was released on early parole after 16 years in prison. In former articles, it states he had an issue with showing remorse, yet after entering into various prison programs,

Along with Baldwin’s opinions, he includes several historical facts that support his reasoning for being on the forefront of fighting for civil rights. The first situation he describes is when his friend Tony Maynard was falsely accused of a crime and put in jail. Lewis M. Steel, the man who tried Tony’s case wrote in an article that “Maynard had been wrongfully accused of a 1967 shotgun killing in Greenwich Village, convicted of manslaughter, and sentenced to ten to twenty years. Using a shotgun as the murder weapon was completely out of character for this stylish man with an artist’s sensibility” (Steel). When Baldwin heard about this, he became more angry with the Americans than before, increasing the oppression of the African-Americans.
