Ed Gein stayed to himself. No one knew that he spent hours obsessed with sexual fantasy and reading about the female anatomy. The human experiments performed in Nazi camps also fascinated him. His mind filled with images of sex and dismemberment and as the mental images merged into one, Ed would reach gratification. Gus, another loner, was a longtime friend Gein. Gein told Gus of experiments he wanted to perform but he needed bodies. Together the two began robbing graves for the needed bodies.This same scenario went on for more than 10 years. This included removing Gein’s mother from her grave. The experiments with the corpses became more gruesome and bizarre over time and included necrophilia and cannibalism. Gein’s obsessive fantasies centralize on his over-powering desire to turn himself into a woman. He would construct items out of the skin of the body that he could then drape on himself such as a female mask and breasts. He even made a complete body-sized female-like jumpsuit.
 The police officers who searched Gein’s house waded through piles of garbage and an unfathomable amount of junk with only oil lamps to guide them. As the officers eyes adjusted, the junk began to take a recognizable form, one that was more horrific than anyone could have ever imagined. Everywhere they looked they saw various body parts, some used as household items such as skulls made into bowls, jewelry made from human skin, lips hanging, chair seats with human skin upholstery, facial skin that was well preserved and resembled masks, a box of vulva’s among which was his mothers, painted silver.
It was later determined that the body parts came from 15 different women although some parts could never be identified. One of the most shocking items found was that of fellow officer Worden’s mother’s heart - found in a pan on the stove.

Anonymous said: In relation to Dahmer,Through practice he had trained himself to recognize the change in respiration from when someone was in heavy drug induced sleep until they had begun to reach consciousness. As their breathing went from deep and even to shallow and quick, he knew they were on the brink of wakefulness, and that is when he strangled them.

Rippers
The photograph above is of the victims of Jack the Ripper.
Several common themes run through the acts of murderers known as “rippers.” Most salient is that they violently mutilate or literally rip their victims open and often dismember them. Most, but not all, ripper murderers select prostitutes as their victims. Jack the Ripper, in late 19th-century London, was particularly proficient at mutilating and disemboweling his victims. Often, these types of murders are committed in an uncontrollable rage leading to exceptionally violent acts. For example, in the 1970s, Peter Sutcliffe, the “Yorkshire Ripper,” mutilated his victims and left bite marks, later used to link him to the crime. Rippers may also engage in cannibalism. Ripper murderers take advantage of their victims’ accessibility as well as their lifestyles, which often makes them difficult to track. For instance, prostitutes may go missing, unnoticed, for long periods of time. The Yorkshire Ripper explained to his younger brother that his motive for his violent murders was to clean up the streets and rid them of prostitutes; his savage mutilation of his victims demonstrates the rage and anger he felt towards women. The opinion that prostitutes were somehow to blame for their victimization was likely shared by some members of the public.

“Night Stalker” suspect Richard Ramirez bragged to a jailer that he killed 20 people, saying he liked to watch them die and even posed with the bodies for gruesome self-portraits, court recordings show. “I would shoot them in the head and they would wiggle and squirm all over the place, or cut them with a knife and watch the face turn real white. I loved all that blood,” a sheriff’s deputy quoted Ramirez as saying what authorities say was a spontaneous confession last fall.
In a transcript of the alleged confession released by the court Thursday, Ramirez also said that after some killings he would “take a camera and set the timer so I could sit them up next to me and take our pictures together.” Deputy Jim Ellis said Ramirez, a reputed devil worshipper approached him at County Jail in October, about six weeks after his capture, and began the conversation by telling him: “I killed 20 people in California. I was a super criminal. No one could catch me.”

Hahaha sure. You should check out trutv.com for information about serial killers; it’s a great site for background and psychology. And if you’re not already following her, you should follow ramirez-dahmer-bundy.tumblr.com because she has great information on serial killers and other crime.

her-glasgow-smile said: oh my god, your blog is incredible! i love all the quotes & pictures you put of Dahmer & Bundy, they're my favorites, and certainly the most fascinating in my opinion! i know you might get asked this alot, but what intrigues you about serial killers? or when do you first develop an interest in crime?

Thank you! 

I’m really interested in psychology and sociology and how the mind works so I think it’s the fact that their brains work differently than others. 

I wouldn’t say I have an interest in crime exactly because I’m a firm supporter of the justice system. However, I think my fascination with serial killers and the like has always been there but got stronger recently when I did more research about them.

Andrei Romanovich Chikatilo  (October 16, 1936 – February 14, 1994) was a Ukrainian-born Soviet serial killer, nicknamed the Butcher of Rostov, The Red Ripper or The Rostov Ripper who committed the murders of a minimum of 52 women and children between 1978 and 1990. He was convicted of 52 murders in October 1992 (although he did confess to a total of 56 murders and was tried for 53 of these killings) and was subsequently executed for the murders for which he was convicted in February, 1994.

In September 1978, Chikatilo moved to Shakhty, a small coal mining town near Rostov-on-Don, where he committed his first documented murder. On December 22, he lured a 9-year-old girl named Yelena Zakotnova to an old house which he had secretly purchased; he attempted to rape her, but failed to achieve an erection. When the girl struggled, he choked her to death and stabbed her body, ejaculating in the process of knifing the child. Chikatilo then dumped Zakotnova’s body in a nearby river. Despite evidence linking Chikatilo to the girl’s death (spots of the girl’s blood were found in the snow near Chikatilo’s house and a witness had given police a detailed description of a man closely resembling Chikatilo who she had seen talking with Zakotnova at the bus stop where the girl was last seen alive), a 25-year-old named Alexsandr Kravchenko who, as a teenager, had served a jail sentence for the rape and murder of a teenage girl, was arrested for the crime and subsequently confessed to the killing. He was tried for the murder in 1979. At his trial, Kravchenko retracted his confession and maintained his innocence, stating his confession had been obtained under extreme duress. Despite his retraction, he was convicted of the murder and sentenced to 15 years’ imprisonment (the maximum possible length of imprisonment at that time). .
Following Zakotnova’s murder, Chikatilo was only able to achieve sexual arousal and orgasm through stabbing and slashing women and children to death, and he later stated the urge to relive the experience overwhelmed him.
