'But I am a monster. I am the "Son of Sam". I am a little brat. When father Sam gets drunk he gets mean.... Sam loves to drink blood. "Go out and kill," commands father Sam.'- David Berkowitz
Evil has many faces. Serial killers, drug kingpins, rapists, and simple murderers fill the pages of this horrifying collection. The actions of these terrible men and women are so vile you will find it hard to believe what they did.
The World's Worst Crimes features many of the worst criminals of human history, including:
· Carlos the Jackal, a terrorist who carried out a series of bomb attacks in Europe, but soon came to enjoy the violence for its own sake.· Harold Shipman, who killed over 236 of his patients, taking advantage of his privileged position as a family doctor.· The 6' 9" Ed Kemper, who captured unfortunate hitchhikers before he raped, murdered, and dismembered them.· Jeffrey Dahmer, who tortured and killed his victims before eating them.
The Zodiac Killer may have been San Francisco's most notorious serial killer, but another equally cruel killer was also stalking the streets at the same time, and, just like the Zodiac Killer, has never been arrested for his crimes. The difference is, while the Zodiac Killer's murder spree was heavily publicized, this other killer, nicknamed The Doodler, went unreported by the media and is nearly unknown today.
How did this ruthless killer become almost forgotten? Because he didn't target helpless women or children--he targeted gays--and in the 70s many people believed they had it coming; if they would just stop being gay, then all would be well.
In this gripping short book, you will go on the trail for one of the most brutal killers who ever lived. Read about why his victims were disregarded by a homophobic press, and how he was positively identified by three escaped victims...only to walk away free without being arrested.
