Painting by notorious killer John Wayne Gacy.

My life has been weird in most ways, and my work life is no exception. I have had some odd jobs in my day. I mean I really have. At one point I worked as a prisoner advocate for the ACLU, where I ended up meeting numerous prisoners, including a ton of murderers. It wasn’t like you might think. It wasn’t freaky or scary, it really was just like sitting down with some guy, (and the occasional woman) who was really psyched to see you. And it was interesting. There is no denying that moving among these people, at times as the only person in the outside world they communicated with, was intriguing to say the least.

Once I met a guy who was in prison for murdering his mom. He was schizophrenic, and when I met him in prison, he was just totally shattered.… Read the rest

Serial Killers That Were Married in Prison

We all know that guy. He cheats on every woman he has gone out with. He lies to them. He steals from them. But he always has a girlfriend. No matter what he does, women are lining up to hang out with him. The more he cheats, lies and steals, the more women seem to dig him.

You aren’t like that. You try to be nice. When you have a girlfriend, you spend time with her, you listen to her, you buy her flowers. You don’t even know why, but you do. Someone once told you that women like it, so that’s what you do. And, yet, you are always alone.

Sometimes it seems like women really want to hang with the bad dudes. What is that about? Here you are making sure that her parents like you, and that you are responsible and loyal, and she doesn’t even care.… Read the rest

Ed Gein Cauldron That Once Held Human Entrails Up for Auction

ed-gein-cauldron

A cauldron that once belonged to Ed Gein will be up for auction in Wisconsin tomorrow (Feb. 28). Hollis Brown, a former neighbor of Gein’s, confirms its authenticity and even claims that it once held human body parts.

Charlie Hintz via Cult of Weird:

According to Dan McIntyre, the cauldron’s current owner, his grandmother Evelyn Mair purchased the cauldron from the Gein estate sale held in 1958, along with some gardening tools. She painted the cauldron and planted flowers in it as a memorial for Gein’s victims.

McIntyre says it wasn’t until 50 years later that he learned the shocking reality of the inconspicuous flower pot that ended up in his parent’s garage.

Hollis Brown, a friend of the McIntyre family, had been a neighbor of Ed Gein’s. Brown told McIntyre that, after the police had finished photographing the crime scene, they were feeling sick to their stomachs. So he and another neighbor by the name of Howard Lowellyn helped remove the bodies and various remains.

Russian Police Arrest Serial Killer Known As A Psychic And ‘Wizard’

Why do a significant portion of serial killers seem to dabble in paranormal powers? Russia Today reports:

Moscow police have detained a psychic, who they suspect killed three photo models. All the victims, young ladies also allegedly engaged in prostitution, knew about the man’s ‘paranormal powers’ and are said to have visited him to cleanse their karma.

Forty-two-year old Georgy Martirosyan, was a well-known “karma cleanser” within a narrow circle of Moscow magicians and psychics, and is said to have called himself a “wizard”.

The young women are thought to have visited Martirosyan believing that he could clear their souls, as well as add to their wealth. Tempted with the victims’ savings, he is said to have killed and robbed three of his clients as well as the mother of one girl.

Detroit: Cubes of Human Flesh Found in Sewer Trigger Serial Killer Fears

Picture: Bastique (CC)

“Cubes” of human flesh floating about in the sewer trigger about a thousand fears, and a possible serial killer is just one of them. (“We all float down here, Georgie.”)

Via New York Daily News:

Fears of a serial killer on the loose in Michigan mounted after cops found cubes of human flesh in a drain pipe that bear disturbing similarities to remains discovered in another pipe last August.

A sanitation crew first spotted the 4-inch-by-4-inch pieces of “skin and fat and little bit of muscle tissue” in a sewer pipe outside Detroit, in Warren, Mich., police told ABC News.

The two cubes of flesh appear to closely match those discovered earlier this year, which were found about 5 miles away in a sewer in Sterling Heights.

Police said that those chunks, 10 in total, which bore an intricate tattoo, belonged to a white woman with a large build, CBS News reported.

Is There a Numerologically-Minded Serial Killer Stalking New York?

Photo: DC Belanger (PD)

Via New York Daily News:

Police aren’t publicly committing to any one theory yet, but they are examining the possibility that the murderer of two people may have chosen his victims for numerological reasons:

Brooklyn shopkeepers are on alert after cops linked two storeowners’ murders to the same gun and suggested the killer might be using numerology to choose his targets.

Isaac Kadare’s store at 1877 86th St., where he was killed last Thursday, and Mohammed Gebeli’s shop at 7718 Fifth Ave., where he was found dead July 6, both have addresses using the same three numbers — a fact that has workers shaken.
