25 Seriously Disturbing Serial Killers from Around the World

by J.M. on July 12, 2010 · 205 comments

I watch a lot of scary movies. Vampires, werewolves, zombies… they’ve got nothing on one other group when it comes to scaring me — serial killers. Even when they’re just fictional characters, I find serial killers to be terrifying not because I expect to come across one any more than a movie monster, but because they represent something real.

These awful excuses for human beings do exist, and they pose a real threat to society. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors, and races. Today we’ll take a quick look at 25 serial killers from around the world. There will be some of the more well-known U.S. and other serial killers, but we’ll also have some from places like Russia, Indonesia, Mexico, China, and more. They aren’t all the most famous serial killers. You’ve probably never heard of some of them. And some of your “favorites” won’t be included here. This list is a little different.

Rather than focusing solely on well-known serial killers (although some will be included), we’re looking at a more diverse group — both men and women, different races and nationalities, etc. Even more importantly, I wanted to take a look at some of the world’s recent and distant serial killers with some of the most disturbing motives or stories.

Keep in mind…. I’m not claiming these are THE most disturbing serial killers. There have been too many for me to ever know about them all, and that would be subjective. These are just some examples of particularly disturbing individuals that caught my attention or made me cringe. If other serial killers top your own personal list, feel free to leave a comment below to tell us about them.

25 Disturbing Serial Killers from Around the World

The serial killers profiled below are listed in alphabetical order (by first names) — not in any order based on how “disturbing” I might find them, by race, nationality, etc. Also, understand that the definition of “serial killer” is heavily debated. For example some definitions simply state there must be a break between killings to separate serial killers from mass-murderers. Other definitions give a specific length that break must be in order to qualify as a serial killer rather than a spree killer. We’re not going split hairs about that here.

Note: Where legal images were available for re-publication, I’ve included them below. You can run a Google image search to view other serial killers from the list if you’re interested — but having them appear in image search results doesn’t give us the right to publish them here for you directly. I did, however, try to link to one page with an image where possible when one wasn’t available for republication.

Now, let’s get to the list.

1. Ahmad Suradji

[image]

The idea of ritualistic serial killers on one hand baffles me and on the other hand fascinates me. They’re a reminder that the world is full of different cultures where different practices are considered acceptable than here in the West.

But Ahmad Suradji doesn’t seem to be following any kind of cultural norm. Instead he just sounds deranged. At the same time, I have to admit it’s one of the more “interesting” excuses or motives I’ve ever seen. Here’s more on Indonesian serial killer, Ahmad Suradji.

Victims: Suradji murdered 42 females between the ages of 11 and 30. The killings took place over 11 years.

Kill Zone: Medan, Indonesia

Methods: Suradji buried his victims up to their waists and strangled them with a cable.

Motives: Suradji conducted ritual killings. He claimed to be told by his father’s ghost in a dream that by killing these women and drinking their saliva, he would become a mystic healer.

Outcome: Ahmad Suradji was found guilty on April 27, 1998 of his crimes and was executed by firing squad on July 10, 2008.

Additional Information: One of Suradji’s three wives (Tumini) was tried as an accomplice. Often Suradji’s victims were women who came to him seeking his services as a healer.

2. Aileen Wuornos

On one hand, I can understand that traumatic experiences can lead to disturbing behavior. Still…. Call me crazy, but I just can’t see trauma caused by someone else as justification for murdering others. Then again, that’s probably because I’m not crazy. Aileen Wuornos is the first female serial killer on our list here, and she’s an example of someone who was (or who claimed to be) traumatized, leading to the murders of several men.

Victims: Wuornos killed 7 men between the ages of 40 and 65.

Kill Zone: Florida, United States

Methods: The murders were committed with multiple gun shots.

Motives: Wuornos claimed that the men she killed had raped her (or tried to) while she was working as a prostitute.

Outcome: Wuornos was executed by lethal injection on October 9, 2002.

Additional Information: Aileen Wuornos’ story was the basis for the movie Monster. She had a child when she was a young teen, claiming she was raped by an unknown man. However, it’s suspected by some that her brother actually fathered the child.

3. Alexander Pichushkin

[image]

Alexander Pichushkin is a Russian serial killer known as “The Chessboard Killer.” Unlike some killers who have almost understandable motives (such as being abused or tortured themselves in some way — not that it excuses anything), Pichushkin is a whole different level of crazy. He killed for the competition of it.

Victims: Pichushkin has 48 verified victims. While not all, most of them were elderly homeless men.

Kill Zone: Moscow, Russia

Methods: Most of Alexander Pichushkin’s victims were killed with hammer blows to the head. He preferred to strike them from behind supposedly to avoid spilling blood on himself. He then threw some of his victims into the sewers.

Motives: It is believed Pichushkin considered himself to be in competition with another serial killer — Andrei Chikatilo. At one point he mentioned that his “goal” was to kill 64 victims — enough to fill the squares on a chessboard, hence his nickname.

Outcome: Pichushkin was convicted on October 24, 2007 to life in prison, including 15 years of solitary confinement.

Additional Information: Pichushkin has been quoted as saying “For me, life without killing is like life without food for you…. I felt like the father of all these people, since it was I who opened the door for them to another world.” He was kept in a glass cage during his trial.

4. Andrei Chikatilo

[images]

You’ve already seen the name Andrei Chikatilo mentioned, because he was at least partially the inspiration for another Russian serial killer — Alexander Pichushkin. Chikatilo was known by two nicknames — “The Red Ripper” and “The Rostov Ripper.”

Victims: Chikatilo killed 53 women and children (of both genders).

Kill Zone: Rostov Oblast, Russia

Methods: Chikatilo didn’t kill all of his victims in the same way. Most were stabbed, but a few were strangled or battered to death. All were mutilated.

Motives: Chikatilo killed for sexual satisfaction — he could only become aroused by committing violent acts against women.

Outcome: Andrei Chikatilo was shot and executed on February 14, 1994.

Additional Information: Chikatilo was impotent due to a childhood illness, yet had two children of his own. His son Yuri was charged with the attempted murder of a man.

5. Carl Eugene Watts

[image]

One thing I find particularly disturbing is when killers start young and no one “notices” or stops them before they can escalate. According to Watts, he was one of those kinds of killers.

Victims: Watts killed females between the ages of 14 and 44. Twelve victims are confirmed, but it’s expected that there were more — possibly dozens.

Kill Zone: Texas and Michigan, United States

Methods: Watts wasn’t faithful to any particular method of killing his victims. He use strangulation, stabbing, drowning, and beatings.

Motives: While his motives aren’t believed to be sexual in nature (as with many serial killers), they aren’t known.

Outcome: Watts died of cancer on September 21, 2007 shortly after being sentenced to life in prison. Prior to this, he had been serving time in Texas.

Additional Information: Watts is believed to have had an IQ of just 68, and he may have killed his first victim at the young age of 15.

6. Carlton Gary

[image]

I won’t say that I do or don’t believe Carlton Gary is guilty of being “The Stocking Strangler.” But for all that we know, that’s who he is. Others disagree, and believe it’s a case of poor evidence. What do you think?

Victims: Carlton Gary is believed to have killed 7 elderly women.

Kill Zone: Georgia, United States

Methods: Victims were beaten, raped, and then strangled to death.

Outcome: Gary was convicted of murder on August 26, 1986 and then sentenced to death. He is still on death row.  He was supposed to be executed on December 16, 2009 but the Georgia Supreme Court stopped his execution the day it was supposed to happen to allow for a hearing on the DNA evidence.

7. Dana Sue Gray

[image]

Have you ever seen an “outfit to die for?” Apparently serial killer / shopaholic Dana Sue Gray has. This has got to be one of the most screwed up motives for murder I’ve seen. But really, greed is one of the oldest I guess.

Victims: Gray killed 3 elderly women age 57 – 87, and a fourth victim survived.

Kill Zone: California, United States

Methods: Two of the victims were strangled with telephone cords (the survivor was one of them), one was beaten, and one was stabbed.

Motives: Gray’s motives were financial. She said she killed her victims to support her overwhelming need to shop. She stole cash and credit cards from her victims to help support her lifestyle.

Outcome: Gray was convicted and sentenced to life without parole on October 16, 1998.

8. Dean Arnold Corll

[image]

Child molester / serial killer, Dean Arnold Corll — known as “The Candy Man” — received a fate rather deserved (at least in this writer’s eyes). I won’t even share what I think should be done to people who abuse and kill children. This is the kind of killer nightmares are made of.

Victims: He killed 27 or 28 young boys.

Kill Zone: Texas, United States

Methods: Victims were raped / sexually assaulted, tortured, and then strangled or shot.

Outcome: He was killed by one of his accomplices.

Additional Information: He had two accomplices who found his victims for him — for $200 each. Apparently that’s the price of a little boy’s life.

9. Elizabeth Báthory

Now let’s take a look at one of the worst female serial killers known, even if a few centuries too late — the “Blood Countess” Elizabeth Báthory.

Victims: Although she was never personally tried, hundreds of female accomplices were convicted for 80 murders.

Kill Zone: Kingdom of Hungary

Methods: Victims were treated to torture, mutilation, and beatings.

Outcome: The accomplices of Elizabeth Báthory were executed. She, on the other hand, was bricked into rooms of her castle for house arrest. She was found dead on August 21, 1614.

Additional Information: Legend has it that she killed and then bathed in the blood of virgins to try to maintain her youth.

10. Gary Leon Ridgway

[image]

Gary Leon Ridgway — “The Green River Killer” — makes my list of one of the most disturbing serial killers for the sheer volume of victims he had. It’s a reminder that sometimes awful people really can evade the law for quite some time. And that is something I find terrifying.

Victims: Ridgway was convicted of 48 murders, although he confessed to killing 71 women. He generally killed prostitutes that he would pick up and have sex with before committing the murders.

Kill Zone: Washington, United States

Methods: Strangulation

Outcome: Ridgway pled guilty to 48 counts of murder on November 5, 2003. He was then sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Additional Information: Ridgway is said to have an IQ of 82.

11. Gregorio Cárdenas Hernández

[image]

When I think of violence in Mexico, I tend to think about drug-related instances and deaths — not serial killers. But I guess we all have our “outstanding citizens” don’t we? Gregorio Cárdenas Hernández — also known as the “Strangler of Tacuba” — didn’t have a lot of victims. But what he did with them is disturbingly strange.

Victims: Cárdenas Hernández killed 3 teenage girls — two 16-year-old prostitutes and one 19-year-old student.

Kill Zone: Mexico City, Mexico

Methods: After having sex with his victims, he strangled them and buried their bodies in his garden.

Outcome: He was arrested and given a life sentence in 1942, but escaped from prison in 1947. After being re-arrested he stayed in prison until 1976 when he was pardoned, cited as a great example of rehabilitation. He died in 1999, of natural causes.

Additional Information: He studied law and psychiatry while in prison, and practiced law after his release. He also wrote three books.

12. Huang Yong

[image]

Apparently “because I wanted to” is a good enough motive to become a serial killer for some. I don’t know about you, but in my mind that’s even worse than killing people for their money because you like to spend too much.

Victims: Yong killed at least 17 teenage boys (but based on a survivor’s account, it was 25).

Kill Zone: Henan province, China

Methods: He drugged, rapes, and then suffocated his victims.

Motives: Huang Yong was quoted as saying “I’ve always wanted to be an assassin since I was a kid, but I never had the chance.”

Outcome: He was both sentenced to death and then executed by firing squad December 2003 — apparently the Chinese don’t wait around. And in this case and the admission, really, I can’t say I blame them.

Additional Information: Yong was a migrant laborer, and he kept his victim’s belts as souvenirs. He claimed that killing females wouldn’t make him as much of a “hero” as killing males.

13. Jack the Ripper

Jack the Ripper might be famous, but he’s still relatively unknown. His identity has never been discovered. In fact, the murders attributed to him might not have even been committed by the same person. But Jack the Ripper makes my list of some of the most disturbing serial killers in the world because, real or not, the lore surrounding those Whitechapel killings went a long way towards solidifying the image of the sinister serial killer in many of our minds — an image that might even be dangerous, given the socially charming nature of others.

Victims: Jack the Ripper was believed to have killed at least 5 prostitutes from 1888-1891.

Kill Zone: London, England (Whitechapel District)

Methods: Victims’ throats were slit and their abdomens were mutilated.

Additional Information: A letter supposedly sent to the media from the killer ignited a media frenzy around the image of Jack the Ripper.

14. Jeffrey Dahmer

[image]

Yes, Jeffrey Dahmer is another one of the more famous serial killers, but I didn’t promise to leave them all off. Let’s just say there was precious little Dahmer did that didn’t make him disturbing enough for this list. Eating your victims is more than enough for me.

Victims: Dahmer killed 17 young men and boys. His victims were of Asian or African descent.

Kill Zone: Wisconsin, United States

Methods: Dahmer was guilty of rape, torture, necrophilia, and cannibalism.

Outcome: Jeffrey Dahmer was sentenced to 15 terms of life in prison in 1992, and he was killed by a fellow inmate on November 28, 1994.

Additional Information: Apparently on May 27, 1991, a 14 year old victim got away. But when he went to police and Dahmer claimed he was his 19 year old boyfriend, police returned the boy to the killer. The boy was murdered that night.

15. Luis Garavito

[image]

“La Bestia,” Luis Garavito, is one of the most prolific serial killers on our list. He’s another one who preyed on young boys, making him doubly disgusting — both for his choice in victims and the number of people he killed.

Victims: There are at least 138 confirmed victims of Luis Garavito — young boys.

Kill Zone: He committed his murders across 59 counties in Colombia.

Methods: Victims were raped, had their throats slit, and were then dismembered.

Outcome: Garavito was convicted on April 22, 1999, and is serving the maximum sentence available in Colombia. Although that sentence is only 30 years, he could still possibly be tried for other crimes he wasn’t yet convicted for, keeping him in longer. That said, there’s also the possibility he could be released early.

16. Mary Ann Cotton

Mary Ann Cotton is a prime example of the “black widow” type of female serial killer. She tended to kill husbands, lovers, or those in her way. Well, you know what they say about a “woman scorned” — or in this case just a woman who wants something from you.

Victims: Cotton had 21 victims including husbands, lovers, and “competitors” (other women who were involved with her male victims).

Kill Zone: Durham, England

Methods: Cotton poisoned her victims.

Motives: She killed her victims for two reasons: financial security (collecting on life insurance policies) and jealousy.

Outcome: Cotton was hanged in March 1873.

Additional Information: At the time it was assumed many of her victims died of “gastric fever” rather than poison.

17. Moses Sithole

[image]

Moses Sithole is a South African serial killer. What makes him most disturbing isn’t even how he killed his victims, but rather the fact that he would call and taunt his victims’ families.

Victims: Sithole killed 30 or more women before he was tried.

Kill Zone: Johannesburg, South Africa

Methods: Victims were raped and strangled.

Outcome: He was convicted on December 5, 1997 and sentenced to 2410 years in prison. He will be eligible for parole after 930 years — 2927. That’s an oddly comforting, if not almost amusing, thought.

Additional Information: Sithole is believed to have posed as a businessman offering jobs in order to gain the trust of the women he murdered.

18. Peter Kürten

When you think of vampires, what era do you think of? I certainly don’t think of the 1900s… unless we’re talking about movies. But around 1930 the world met serial killer Peter Kürten, labeled the “Vampire of Düsseldorf.”

Victims: While he was only charged with 9 murders and 7 attempted murders, Kürten actually confessed to 79 killings.

Kill Zone: Düsseldorf, Germany

Methods: He intentionally chose to use a variety of killing methods to keep police in the dark about the connection between the murders.

Motives: His motive was of the good old “can’t get it up” variety. He killed for sexual stimulation, needing to see blood to become aroused.

Outcome: I’m sure he would have been pleased by the blood on display July 2, 1931 when he was executed by guillotine.

Additional Information: Kürten claimed that he committed his first murders when he was just 5 years old, drowning two friends.

19. Robert Hansen

[image]

Robert Hansen took advantage of the Alaskan wilderness when he killed his victims. All in all he isn’t much different than other serial killers. What caught my attention about Hansen was his seeming addiction to “the hunt” — and I don’t just mean finding new victims.

Victims: Hansen is believed to have killed somewhere between 17 and 21 young women, with a particular emphasis on prostitutes.

Kill Zone: Alaska, United States

Methods: Hansen’s victims were kidnapped, raped, then released. Hansen would then hunt his victims around his cabins like hunting game, and they were ultimately killed with a hunting knife or a rifle.

Outcome: Hansen pled guilty to 4 of the murders, and has served in various federal prisons since June 13, 1983.

Additional Information: Hansen took jewelry from his victims.

20. Robert Maudsley

[image]

Robert Maudsley — “Hannibal the Cannibal” — makes the list not only for the belief that he ate part of the brain of one of his victims, but because of the types of people he killed.

Victims: Maudsley had 4 victims, but 3 of them were murdered while they were in prison.

Kill Zone: Berkshire, England

Methods: One victim was killed by strangulation, another by torture, and two others by stabbings.

Outcome: Maudsley initially went to prison in 1974. But after killing 3 fellow prisoners he was placed in solitary confinement in 1983.

Additional Information: Three of Maudsley’s 4 victims were actually child molesters or sex offenders. Honestly that makes me dislike him just a wee bit less.

21. Robert Pickton

[image]

Here’s another killer who didn’t make this list because of how he killed his victims, but rather for something he did with their bodies after the fact. Robert Pickton fed the bodies of his victims to pigs. Yeah.

Victims: Pickton was convicted of killing 6 people, but charged with the murders of 20 others. He murdered prostitutes.

Kill Zone: Vancouver, Canada

Methods: Pickton killed his victims by strangling and mutilation. Details are largely unknown about victims he wasn’t convicted on, but there were also possibly gunshot victims.

Outcome: His conviction on 6 counts of second degree murder happened on December 9, 2007. He’s serving a life sentence with no possibility of parole for 25 years.

Additional Information: Robert Pickton’s story was loosely used in an episode of TV’s CSI and also served as the basis for an episode of Criminal Minds.

22. Saeed Hanaei

[image]

I don’t know which is worse… killing people because you are morally depraved, or killing people because you think you’re cleansing that depravity or corruption. Apparently Iranian serial killer Saeed Hanaei — the “Spider Killer” — had no problem with the latter.

Victims: Hanaei killed 16 prostitutes, with an emphasis on prostitutes who were drug addicts.

Kill Zone: Mashad, Iran

Methods: Hanaei strangled his victims.

Motives: He killed his victims because he believed he was eliminating their moral corruption.

Outcome: Saeed Hanaei was hanged on April 8, 2002.

Additional Information: Hanaei was called the “spider killer” because he lured women to his home before having sex with and murdering them, similar to the way a spider lures prey into its web. Hanaei was a high profile and controversial figure in Iran. Some fundamentalists even praised his actions (although I can’t quite see how sleeping with prostitutes before killing them is any kind of moral high ground — but hey, that’s just me). Hanaei’s murders were the inspiration behind Alice Cooper’s 2008 “Along Came a Spider.”

23. Ted Bundy

Okay. So Ted Bundy is another pretty well-known serial killer. But cutting off and keeping the heads of victims definitely puts him in my list of seriously disturbing serial killers.

Victims: Bundy confessed to over 30 murders of white middle-class females between the ages of 15 and 25.

Kill Zone: Washington, Oregon, Utah, Idaho, Colorado, and Florida, United States

Methods: Bundy’s victims were beaten then strangled. He was also guilty of rape and necrophilia.

Outcome: Bundy faced execution by the electric chair in Florida on January 24, 1989.

Additional Information: Bundy tended to kill women that resembled his fiancé and had similar hair styles. But because they were physically different in other ways, Bundy denied a resentment towards here was part of his motive.

24. Tsutomu Miyazaki

[image]

Well, when someone’s known by names like the “Little Girl Murderer” and “Dracula,” it just can’t be good. I’m guessing the “Dracula” title would be a hint that Tsutomu Miyazaki drank blood from his victims. But here’s the even more disturbing part. (And yes… it gets more disturbing than drinking the blood of little girls.) He was also known to have eaten hands of a victim. Oh, and just for good measure, he went out of his way to torment his victims’ families. I literally can’t read about this man without feeling physically ill.

Victims: Miyazaki killed 4 little girls between 4 and 7 years old.

Kill Zone: Tokyo, Japan

Methods: Bodies were mutilated and corpses were molested.

Outcome: Miyazaki was sentenced to death April 14, 1997 and hanged June 17, 2008.

Additional Information: Miyazaki was born with deformed hands fused directly to his wrists, and contacted family members of victims with cryptic, taunting messages (and even the cremated remains of one victim). At one point, anime and horror films were cited as the reason for his crimes.

25. Zodiac Killer

What can I say? I find unknown serial killers to be rather disturbing. Are they still out there? I don’t know. But that’s why the well-known Zodiac Killer makes my list. The thought that these monsters could evade arrest gives me the willies.

Victims: The Zodiac Killer has 7 confirmed victims (5 dead and 2 survivors). However some believe the killer has as many as 37 victims.

Kill Zone: California, United States

Methods: Victims were killed via stabbings and shootings. Various cases were linked because of the Zodiac letters sent to newspapers. The letters included strange symbols and ciphers, some of which are still unsolved. They also included lines such as “Me=37, SFPD=0,” announcing 37 victims for the killer and no points for the police. The letters date from August 1969 to 1974 (last confirmed).

Motives: One deciphered code claimed the thrill of killing was a motive, as well as talking about the victims serving as his slaves in the afterlife.

Additional Information: Dirty Harry is loosely based on these crimes, among other films like 2007′s Zodiac.

Given that this is a blog post and not a book, it would be absolutely impossible to share details about all of the world’s serial killers. These are some of the ones who jumped out at me and disgusted, intrigued, or disturbed me in some way — at least a bit moreso than the others. What about you? Is there a local or historical serial killer you’re aware of that has a disturbing story, methods, or motives? Feel free to share that information with the rest of us by leaving a comment.

Go to this link and observe the frayed rope & fibers, beneath the large wooden reel that power companies use for utility wire coils.
The 2 photos were taken by me on 01/07/08 in the shed next to the Abandoned Densmore Farm House, where Gary Hilton. held Meredith Hope Emerson, during daylight hours. Note the sears speaker used to prop up the shed, preventing collapse.

What you will observe is the residue and signs of an escape attempt and a very violent struggle between GMH and Meredith, in the early morning hours of 01/04/08. I am confident that this is when and where Meredith Hope Emerson met her fate..

GMH, was eyewitnessed by S. Watson, at 9:00AM on 01/04/08, standing on a mound in the front yard. He said that he was standing like a statue…(S. Watson, had returned from celebrating his anniversary in Nashville, TN, the previous night and had not seen the news.)

GMH, was eyewitnessed at Dawson Forest WMA, at 10:30AM and again by another witness at 12:00 Noon on 01/04/08, about a 30 minute drive, where Meredith’s remains were later located.

http://*************.net/index.php?topic=3654.80 Page #5 – reply #98 by Edward

In my next comment I will describe the tragic event that occured in this shed on 01/04/08 during the early morning hours.

GMH, is being looked at for many other unsolved missing & murdered victims. Within a week of Gary Michael Hilton’s arrest on 01/04/08, he caught the interest of the BAU of the FBI in Quantico, VA. Experienced agents and profilers were sent to sit in on the GBI interviews.

Many of the items that I reported at the abandoned farmhouse on 01/06/08, were taken in to the crime lab for testing, but much was missed, by a quick walk through by LE Agents.

The frayed rope with the ends taped, in the shed, where GMH, had Meredith tied up and she broke loose and fought him the 3rd time wasn’t noticed by me til 01/07/08. Meredith, moved her shoulders back and forth until the frayed rope broke, allowing her one final unsuccessful attempt at escaping his wrath..
On the ridge above the shed was some large steel tanks, that GMH, was using to secure victims, as well as 2 iron bars leaning up against a tree. These were shown me by an intelligent stray black lab named ‘Buddy’. After scenting the rope, he proceeded up the ridge into the woods, stopping and looking back at me to follow him. When he reached the iron bars he nudged them with his nose, and looked back at me… He then proceeded up the ridge, which is a hunting club, and started scratching the ground and sniffing in several spots. On a logging road that disected this area, I looked around and saw the glass canning jar that GMH, used to mark his burial grounds. The sheds are full of ladies clothes and purses.
The 2nd shed over from the house is where the POI #1 on the Levi Frady site, came at me with the iron bar. I was dowsing the ridge, and suprised him. I am confident that he was removing evidence from the shed. He had no life in his eyes or expression on his face…

Across the street is an old country store. GMH’s wardrobe of old vintage wool clothes were hanging, and in a wooden box. A pile of these clothes were in the attic of the house where he had the frigid weather room, along with the ‘tuck me in box’, a case of canning jars, wood burning stove, and the newspaper with the night stalker article from 1989 Gainsville Times. GMH, was eyewitnessed by 3 people wearing these clothes in the dead heat of the summer, yet he showed no signs of perspiration. One of the witnesses said that he remembered him because he was cursing his dog; ‘Dandy.’

On 01/01/08, Gary Hilton, actually headed into Blairsville from the Herbert Reece trailhead parking lot on Hwy 129 after abducting Meredith Hope Emerson, from Blood Mtn. First he stopped to pump gas with Meredith chained in the van, was scared off by a customer pulling up next to his van, then he went to the Appalacian Bank; Blairsvile, GA, at 7:04 PM and attempted to use her ATM card, for over 15 minutes. Meredith refused to give him the correct PIN numbers.
During the Four days that GMH, held her hostage, he attempted to use her ATM cards at two more banks, she persisted in giving him the wrong PIN numbers, buying time for a rescue by LE…
Although many people including myself, witnessed GMH hiding in plain sight, in Dawson Co & Pickens Co, GA, the three days that followed her abduction, including Sheriff’s Deputies and Forest Officials. Meredith’s rescue never came due to the antiquated strategy of Law Enforcement of keeping valuable information close to their vest, providing missinformation to the American Public, via the media(local & national).
Once GMH’s sketch and vehicle description was released to the media, he was captured within hours by Law Enforcement, due to an alert citizen’s 911 call.

I recently received and have been reading and absorbing some of the information retrieved from the GBI investigation of the Meredith Hope Emerson abduction, acquired via FOIA, by another very concerned citizen.

After reading the interview of John Tabor; Gary Michael Hilton’s employer, concerning the events leading up to her abduction and the phone calls made on 01/03/08(while holding Meredith Hope Emerson hostage) at 4:40PM from Weavers Amoco; Marble Hil, GA 30148 and then from the Marble Hill, GA 30148; Huddle House at 4:45PM from GMH, to John Tabor.

I personally verified that a call from the Huddle House is displayed on ‘Caller ID’, as suspected.

John Tabor, was interviewed twice by LE (GBI & FBI)and once by the media. He stated that the first call was from a pay phone with a bad connection and he thought the 2nd phone call was from a cell phone.

I will share the information from the interviews, once I calm down…

At 11:10 tonight, I was sitting on my front porch watching for shooting stars and enjoying the cool mountain air, when I saw headlights of what sounded like a four wheel drive truck, pull into the hidden driveway next to the Abandoned Densmore Farm House, across the river, aproximately 200 yards away, where Gary Hilton held Meredith Hope Emerson, captive in Jan 2008.

Although I couldn’t see the house I could see lights flicker and hear the loud noises which sounded like vandals. I called Dawson County 911 to report the vandals.
Since the Kristi Cornwell, abduction, I have been keeping a close eye out on this area. I sat on my porch and listened to the vandalism for aproximately ten minutes while waiting on LE’s arrival.

Only seconds before their arrival I saw the truck’s headlights leave. I then noticed the flickering of flames. I called 911 back to report a fire in the Farm House and could hear the fire Department being dispatched by the first arriving LE. 911 asked if I had a contact name and number for the Densmore’s. I said yes, that I would call back with the info. When I called back, I could hear the transmission of the Officer of the first arriving Fire Apparatus, “We’ve got a one story frame Fully Involved with Fire!” I walked back out on the porch and the flames were lighting up the darkened night sky..

Seems the responding LE passed two trucks only blocks from the inferno. They stopped the first truck, while ignoring the second truck; the truck with ‘the Arsonist’ driving away…

When will LE learn to stage their resources? I overheard them say that this was at least the fourth abandoned house torched recently in the county. Arson is an addiction and the arsonist usually escalates. Who knows, their next fire may tragically have occupants. I do know, this will not be their last, unless they are caught and brought to Justice…

While writing up the report, I asked the LEO if he knew the history of the old house. He said no and I told him. His response was, “who told you that?” I asked if he knew about the 1994 ‘Deadly Run’ Movie. He said no…

Comment # 145 continued ‘Huddle House’ phone is displayed on caller ID: 770-894-4684, I personally verified this by physically making a phone call from the Huddle House’s phone to another concerned citizen. A simple 911 call by John Tabor on 01/03/08, would have rescued Meredith Hope Emerson, and insured the capture of Gary Michael Hilton. Why wasn’t the call made made? Below is the truth:

More Info About Hilton Emerging

More information is emerging about Gary Hilton and the time he spent after allegedly kidnapping Meredith Emerson.

Thursday, while at a Pickens County Huddle House, Hilton called his former boss, John Tabor.

“He said he needed some money to get started,” Tabor said. “So I told him I would leave a check for him at the office on Clairmont Road for him to retrieve the following day, Friday.”

What Gary Hilton didn’t know when he called Tabor was that Tabor had already called the GBI about Hilton. Tabor said he called the GBI as soon as he heard that Meredith Emerson was missing from the hiking trail on Blood Mountain in Union County. Tabor knew Hilton camped in the wilderness there, and based on what he knew of Hilton, suspected Hilton might be the one who kidnapped Emerson.

So Tabor had already given the GBI Hilton’s name, van description and license tag numbers. Right after Hilton called Tabor, Tabor called the GBI again, and the GBI raced to the Huddle House, trying to catch up to Hilton and Emerson.

Hilton worked for Tabor’s siding business, Insulated Wall Systems, on and off for ten years. In fact the office on Clairmont Road in DeKalb County was listed as Hilton’s suspected address on his initial kidnapping warrant. at a Huddle House restaurant on Highway 53 in Pickens County.

What neither Tabor nor workers at the Huddle House restaurant on Highway 53 in Pickens County could have known when Hilton picked up the phone was that Meredith Hope Emerson, was alive and restrained inside Hilton’s van in the restaurant parking lot.

The GBI said Hilton killed Emerson the next day in Dawson County, one day after calling his former boss to plan his future.

“That was the last contact I had from Gary Hilton,” Tabor said. “And apparently when they picked him up, he was en-route to get that check.”

Tabor said he wants Meredith Emerson’s family to know that he did everything he could to help police catch Hilton and save Meredith.

Tabor is out of state and expects to return home to Metro Atlanta in a few days. He said he never really intended to re-hire Hilton, after a falling out they had last year. He is grieving along with the people at the Huddle House, wondering and agonizing over what more they could have done.

GEORGIA BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION REGION 8
INVESTIGATIVE SUMMARY
6:30 – 7:30 pm
On Thursday, January 3,2008, ASSISTANT SPECIAL AGENT IN CHARGE J. C MADDOX spoke via telephone with JOHN TABER [TABOR sic.]in reference to the missing person investigation concerning MEREDITH EMERSON. AGENT MADDOX had contacted TABER to ascertain if he was aware of any telephone numbers that GARY HILTON (suspect in this investigation) may have at this time or may have had in recent months. TABER advised AGENT MADDOX that HILTON had tried to contact TABER on this
date. TABER stated that at approximately 4:35 p.m. on this date (01-03-08) HILTON had called from what TABER believed to be a pay phone (number 770-893-9922). TABER could not hear HILTON very well. At approximately 4:40 pm., HILTON again contacted TABER on TABER’s cellular telephone. This number was 770-894-4684. TABER did not know where this telephone was located. TABER just stated that the reception was much better. TABER stated that HILTON wanted to borrow money from TABER. HILTON stated that he had gotten his life in order and had turned things around and wanted to come back to work for TABER. HILTON stated he would need approximately seven hundred dollars or eight hundred dollars to get his driver’s license and tags renewed. HILTON had wanted TABER to leave a check at TABER’s business in Decatur. HILTON advised he would come pick it up either that evening or the next date.
TABER further advised that HILTON had used a cellular telephone that had been purchased for TABER’s business. TABER’s business was in construction and HILTON was a “laborer”. HILTON had used the telephone up until late September or early October of 2007. The telephone number had been transferred to another telephone. That
. number was inactive on the phone that he had given HILTON. No further information was obtained at this time.

Then on Jan. 18, 2008, what finally came to be admitted?

S/A HOWARD asked TABOR if he attempted to contact the GBI when HILTON had called him on January 3,2008. TABOR became visually upset and began to cry. He stated that he did not attempt to call anyone. HILTON contacted TABOR at approximately 4:41 p.m. and asked him for money. After taking the call, TABOR attended to some business requirements prior to receiving a call from ASAC JESSE MADDOX at approximately 6:30 p.m Though during the phone conversation TABOR told ASAC MADDOX that he had been trying to call, TABOR clarified to S/A HOWARD he had not actually tried to contact law enforcement. TABOR stated that “I thought we had him, the ruse was set up for tomorrow”. TABOR never contacted anyone about a “ruse” or about HILTON calling him. TABOR only provided the information about HILTON’s 4:41 p.m. call when he was directly asked by ASAC MADDOX (OVER THE PHONE in the late evening of Jan. 3, 2008). EXHIBIT 174 (cross ref. Exhibit 21)
************************************************** ************************************************** ***
The phone call to John Tabor was made at 4:41 PM. The response time to the Huddle House; Marble Hill, GA , 30148 by the GBI on 01/03/08 was ‘four hours due to Tabor’s failure to dial 911. The GBI’s time of arrival was 9:00PM.
Why has this been silenced by the media (Local and National)?
Precious Innocent Victims Lives depend on ‘Truth in the Media’. They should be ashamed…

Serial Killers – A Homicide Detective’s Take
By Lieutenant Nelson Andreu (Retired)
Miami Police Department
Submitted May, 2005

1.Credentials and Interest
2.Common Knowledge
3.Genesis of a Serial Killer
4.Victim Selection
5.Victim Objectification
6.Denouement
7.Case Histories
1. Credentials and Interest
It was during my tenure of over 20 years as a homicide Detective and Detective Sergeant with the Miami Police Department that I investigated six serial murder cases. I like to think that the experience I gained in those investigations has given me a most rudimentary glimmer of understanding as to what motivates a serial killer in undertaking his atrocities.

These six serial murder cases, which accounted for the murders of nearly 50 people, all took place in the Miami area. All six offenders were men: two Hispanic/white males, two African-American males, and two white Anglo males. They all had different, although equally macabre, reasons for their acts. Three of the killers confessed their crimes while the others took their reasons to their graves, dying of AIDS while in prison or taking their own lives. The three men who confessed provided us with many, sometimes distressingly vivid, details of how, why, and when they committed their crimes.

Although part of my job as a homicide detective is to analyze the motives of killers, my interest goes beyond the requirements of my job. I have acquired and extensively studied a lengthy and well-written dissertation prepared by a convicted and, to me unknown, serial killer, and material from this document is incorporated into this article. Because I do not know his name I cannot give specific credit to its author.

I can, however, vouch for the validity of this document by providing some history about how I obtained it. While working the Rory Conde case, the investigative team was receiving copious leads, but none were panning out. One of the investigators assigned to the Task Force received by mail a letter from a local therapist. The author of this glimpse into a killer’s mind prepared it as part of his psychological treatment at the request of his therapist, who chose to protect the identity of his source. The document that we received was a photocopy of what had apparently originally been handwritten on a lined legal pad in a consistent fine point that appeared to have been ink. The letter was perfectly legible and the printing was so nearly perfect that at first glance it appeared almost to have been typewritten. Close inspection revealed, however, the slight variations of human penmanship. The writing was meticulous, a nearly perfect hand that neatly compacted two rows of text between every two lines. Approximately five pages long, the document showed no mistakes and appeared completely free of erasures, strike-outs, even hesitation. If the writer employed such precision and planning in implementing the hideous deeds he described, it seemed nothing short of miraculous that he was ever caught. With hundreds of years of collective investigative experience behind the assembled investigative team, or Serial Killer Task Force as we were called, we harbored no doubt that whoever had written this document was a perverse, sadistic, frighteningly sick individual who was highly likely to have committed the unspeakable acts that he reduced to writing.

Revealed in this article are presumably candid thought processes provided by this protected source, as well as information provided by serial killers whom I have investigated. Although serial killers vary in the details of their mental constructs, certain procedural similarities are common among them, and enable us to construct a very general profile. In this article I attempt to track similarities among people who kill strangers.

2. Common Knowledge
During the six serial killer cases I investigated, I dealt extensively with Criminal Profilers from both the FBI and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). Their training and work experience are extensive and years in the making, and I have found these specialists to be truly invaluable resources.

First, a few statistics. Keep in mind, of course, that these are generalities; always there will be those who fall outside the bell curve. The following is a consensus of the majority of criminal profilers, based on actual cases they have investigated. Serial killers tend to be mostly white males; between 20 and 40 years of age . Most, although not all, serial killers begin their lives as petty criminals; initially they may have been peeping-Toms, animal torturers, arsonists, or any other of a wide range of pre-killing crimes. I have yet to hear of a provably “upstanding” citizen who begins his life of crime by killing people for personal and/or sexual gratification. In addition, as you may have observed from the examples given above, the “petty crimes” engaged in by nascent serial killers tend away from harmless “pranks” such as vandalism and opportunistic burglary and in the direction of more highly “anti-social” behaviors.

3. Genesis of a Serial Killer
Serial killers frequently suffer from low self-esteem, often complicated by some sort of sexual dysfunction. Many were themselves the victims of sexual abuse and/or were raised in violent households. Never having received much training in social graces and lacking in confidence, they tend to be introverted and friendless. Some, like emotional adolescents that never reach adulthood, maintain unhealthy ties to a family member, often the mother. And although certain serial killers have counted their mothers among their victims, in my belief such instances are not sexual in nature, but more a revenge or to halt years of real or perceived domination. In nearly all cases, deviant and recurring sexual desires and fantasies are what drive these people to murder multiple victims.

Spending much time alone, those who will depart the social norms tend to inhabit an imaginary world. Their fantasies, which in my experience always involve sex, begin small. At first they are able to achieve gratification merely by imagining these scenarios, and in that way they may not differ from other people who for reasons of their own concoct socially unacceptable fantasies that never see the light of day.

For those who develop into serial killers, at some point imaginary scenarios start to become insufficient. When thoughts and self-stimulation no longer suffice, some of these people may act their visions out in the limited but sometimes quite realistic realm of sado-masochistic sex. In time, even that is not enough. For reasons of their own, some people require more and greater stimuli to satisfy their turbulent desires, until finally they enact the killing of their first victim.

This is a big step, even for a highly aberrant mind. The perpetrator himself may be shocked and frightened, even disgusted, and it may take a while for the first-time murderer to reestablish his personal mandate. While doing so, he may relive his actions over and over in his mind, thus receiving again that gratification obtained during the actual murder and, perhaps, by doing so actually setting the stage for his progression. Some killers take something, a trophy if you will, from their victim. It may be an article of clothing or a photograph, a swatch of hair or piece of jewelry, something of use to embellish their mental re-living of their actions. This suffices for a while but, in time, their ability mentally to revisit their victim’s demise will fade. By the time this happens, if he has reconstructed his entitlement and begins to hunt another victim, such a person has come to fit the classical mold of a serial killer.

4. Victim Selection
How does a serial killer select victims? The traditional school of thought holds that generally they select victims based on certain physical and/or personal characteristics. This assertion presupposes that, within the mind of each serial killer, there evolves synthesis of preferred characteristics and, ultimately, a clear, specific picture of his “ideal” victim, be it male or female, black or white, young or old, short or tall, large busted or small, shy or forward, and so on. Then, when that “typical” serial killer begins an active search for human prey, he will go to certain lengths to capture and victimize only those individuals who closely fit the mold.

Unexpectedly, I have observed that most serial killers never actually find and kill their “dream victim.” People fitting such detailed and perfected images may not only be hard to come by, but may also not be easily available in the venues haunted by “hunting” serial killers. So when that ideal victim cannot be found, and when their internal impetus becomes powerful enough, they will settle for a substitute. Ignoring for a moment the disparity between deviant human and normal feline behavior, a serial killer can be compared to a hungry lion that lies in wait for his favorite meal. It may be the lion knows an impala has the most tender or tasty meat. He waits for an opportunity to kill and eat the impala and in doing so may allow easy but not-so-attractive prey to pass unmolested. In time, hunger pains growing and no impala in sight, the famished lion will settle for an unwary bird that happens by. After devouring the bird, which gives his hunger a brief respite, the lion again has time to savor the taste of an impala, and the cycle begins again.

Like the lion, a serial killer just will not defer acting out his urge to kill simply because his “ideal” victim refuses to materialize at his beck and call. But his reason for settling for something less divulges from that of the lion. There are two basic, interrelated reasons for this disparity. The first centers on the extra caution exercised by a serial killer in his search for a victim; the second, upon the nature of the compulsion that drives him to violence.

Before January 2008, I couldn’t spell cereal killer.. With the exception of TV Shows and the News, about serial killers prior, I had limited knowledge with the exception of the Wayne Williams; ‘Missing & Murdered’ Children of Atlanta.

As an Atlanta Fire Captain, I had experienced the tragic aftermath of many Arson Fires & Murders, of which a few may have been comitted by psychopathic serial killers.

Serial Killers such as GMH, are very creative, deflective, intelligent, manipulative, has keen instincts, and is very knowledgeable of human behavior.

GMH, is/was a ‘Hunter, and a Professional – a Soldier on a Perpetual Mssion.’
After suffering through the GBI/FBI interview of his Mother, it is obvious that GMH would have met all the characteristics & traits on Dr. Hare’s Checklist.
Gary Michael Hilton, in not your ‘run of the mill’ serial killer, or rampage serial killer, that began his reign of terror in October 2007 with John & Irene Bryant(NC).

Gary Michael Hilton, was an emulator/copycatter of many serial killers prior; a ‘Stealth Predator’, who had confused VICAP and the Experienced and Expert Behavior Analysis Profilers of the FBI, time & time again.

As in any culture, or in any community spread across this great Nation, there are those who refuse or are unable to adapt to a civilized society, skirting the rules and laws that guide the rest of us through life. Fortunately they are the exception rather than the rule…

Due to their selfish need to fulfill their evil desires or sexual fantasies, their lack of empathy for others, as well as their self assurance of remaining anonymous or stealth by hiding behind their masks of normalcy (at least in the darkness of their minds), they resort to the unimaginable, or unconscionable..

These psycopathetic predators, who know no boundaries of sanity, prey on unsuspecting innocent victims. Many of these predators hone their skills with each innocent victim devoured, increasing confidence and causing escalation.Although, most of these predators have an uncanning ability to shield their motives, their expressionless face, hiding behind their fake smiles, combined with their evil lifeless eyes, can not conceal this deceit, to those who are aware or in touch with their natural born instincts.

Once in the grasp of a prolific Serial Killer, such as GMH, the odds of escaping are severely diminished. The only effective weapon that we all posses, is knowledge and detection:

Be cautious, adhere to personal Safety Rules, and ‘Trust your Natural Instincts’.
We all have to be on guard 24/7 and look out for each other to prevent becoming another innocent victim of a Serial Killer or Sexual Predator…

The Prosecution and Defense, both requested silence in the GMH Investigation for over 3 years, and Judge Terry ‘Hanging Chad’ Lewis granted the motions. All of them. Judge Lewis, normally a defender of the 1st amendment, granted all of the silence. I suspect that this is why he was replaced by Judge Hankinson. The Feds requested it from North Carolina.
All you have to do is compare the Green River Serial Killer Suspect and POI total for two decades: 40, 000, and double that amount for gmh, (stranger abductions) since he was active for 4+ decades instead of only two, and you will see why everyone is silent…

The truth is an indictment of the Justice Syatem. GMH, undesputably should have been incarcerated since 1982, or before.

GMH, skirted the Justice System and prison, due to his enablers, Associates, Attorneys; ‘Officers of the Court’..

Folks, some know, some prolly forgot, and others ignored, but I researched the North GA Judicial District for over a year before the Meredith Hope Emerson tragedy. The indictment rate of the Grand Jury, is upwards of 99%, usually based on circumstantial evidence. I can’t speak for Florida’s indictment rate, but I would suspect that it may be comparable. If you were indicted, could you afford a $250 – $500.00+ Criminal Defense Attorney? I couldn’t, but I did.. Most folks are trapped into using a public defender that is overwhelmed with cases, and will persuade you to plea to a lesser charge.. Simple as that…

My motivation for investigating them was a kangaroo court atmosphere of intimidation that sent my son; a father of 3, to a maximum security prison(Phillips: Hard Rock Prison) for what amounted to a misdemeanor. The retaliation was due to him calling the FBI Rome, GA office on the local Sheriff, relating to a Colour Blue incident…

How many folks were suspected, indicted, convicted, or I really hate to think about: executed for GMH & Associates’ evil deeds?
Do the math..

GMH, applied for Green Beret training…trained SpeciaL Forces: Airborne… failed psychological evaluation…denied ..went awol…Army found that recruiting officer was duped..GMH was under psychiatric care for three years for shooting stepfather Nilo DeBag at age 14 years old…Army realized that they had trained a psychopath, to be a lethal killing machine…

‘released him on society’,

with an honorable discharge, and a thirst for violent death….

Bryant family speaks about Hilton, possible charges

Family members of John and Irene Bryant say it’s been a hard three years since the death of their parents, but they believe justice may be served after a man linked to their parent’s murder stands trial in Florida on an unrelated murder charge.

Opening statements began Friday in Florida in the murder trial of Gary Michael Hilton, 64. Hilton has already pleaded guilty to the murder of 24-year-old Meredith Emerson in Georgia, where her beaten body was found in a forest. Now he is standing trial and could face the death penalty if convicted in Tallahassee in the murder of Cheryl Dunlap.

Hilton still has not been charged in North Carolina for the murders of the Byrants, an elderly couple who were hiking in Pisgah National Forest in October 2007 when they disappeared. Irene’s body was found in November, and John’s in February.

“It’s been extremely hard,” Holly Bryant said Friday. “We would like to see justice done. I am just glad he is off the street. Unfortunately he was able to do this to two other people before he was caught.”

While the U.S. Department of Justice has not released any information to the public or media since 2008, Holly Bryant said that a lot has been happening behind the scenes.

“We have been told that anything he (Hilton) says at his current trial can be used against him in a trial in North Carolina,” she said. “The Department of Justice has said they are waiting for the outcome in Florida then plan to pursue charges in North Carolina. They have promised us they will seek charges and they plan to seek the death penalty.”

Lia Bantavani, a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, said Friday that nothing had been filed in the case for Hilton and the U.S. Department of Justice could not comment.

The Bryants, an older but fit and active couple, had gone on a hike in 2007 and never returned. John, 81, and Irene, 84, of Horse Shoe, were avid hikers and often took strolls in the trails near the Pink Beds in Pisgah National Forest.

The missing persons case quickly turned into a homicide investigation in November 2007, when deputies found Irene’s body along Yellow Gap Road. An autopsy showed she had been beaten to death. In February 2008, a hunter found her husband’s skeletal remains near Franklin. An autopsy showed he died from a gunshot to the head.

It did not take long for Transylvania County officials to name a prime suspect — drifter Hilton, identified by police in January 2008.

Seeking the death penalty is now important to Holly Bryant because of her parents’ stance on capital punishment.

“My parents strongly believed in the death penalty for horrendous crimes,” she said. “For that reason I am for it as a way to speak for my parents.”

“We’ve been told there is DNA evidence that links Hilton to our parents’ murders,” she added. “Another reason they have not sought charges, they have told us, is he is in a place where he can’t get away and they assured us they will seek the death penalty.”

Holly Bryant, who lives in Palm Bay, Fla. , aid while she considered going to Tallahassee to witness Hilton’s trial first hand, she has not done so.

“I don’t want to take attention away from Ms. Dunlap’s family,” she said. “I don’t think I could do any good and it would upset me, so I haven’t gone.”

While Holly Bryant said she is thankful Hilton was caught and appreciates what the authorities have done in their investigation, she said it was a citizen’s information that led to his arrest.

“I want to thank the citizen who reported what they saw that led to Hilton’s arrest,” she said. “It is my understanding that this citizen saw him cleaning blood out of his van and called the authorities.”

Holly Bryant also has some words of wisdom for older residents who may have restricted their lives after hearing about the Bryant’s tragedy.

“Something was said at my parents memorial service that stuck out to me,” she said. “They went out and enjoyed life. They weren’t scared. I hope that people will continue to live their lives and don’t let monsters, like Hilton, make them restrict their lives.”

Holly Bryant, who also enjoys hiking, said that now when she hikes it makes her feel close to her parents.

“I think of my parents every day,” she said. “I use their values to help guide me.”

Holly’s brother, Bob, said while the past three years have been hard, he has healed some.

“I am a member of a support group for survivors of crimes, and that has helped,” he said. “It has still been difficult.”

Bob Bryant said he is disappointed with the length of time it has taken the U.S. Department of Justice to do something in his parents case.

“I understand there are multiple cases, but these families deserve justice,” he said.

Bob Bryant said that it is his understanding the Hilton couldn’t be indicted in his parents death until the Florida trial is complete.

“He is guaranteed a speedy trial after he has been charged and the Florida case would have tied that up,” he said.

To keep his parents memory alive, Bob Bryant keeps pictures of them around him.

“It helps me to remember their pleasant attitude and what great people they were,” he said.

I encountered that monster Gary Michael Hilton while hiking at Stone Mountain , North Carolina in January 2007. I was hiking alone and he stalked me while I was at Wolf Rock. He wanted to hike with me and instantly I sensed there was something wrong with him. I am a widow and wanted to be alone, but I had sense enough to not let him know I was up there alone. I told him my husband was on his way up there soon and that he didn’t like for me to talk to other men. I feel like that is the only reason I am still alive. It shocked me exactly one year after I encountered the monster, that he had killed so many people . I am just fortunate to be alive. If you were a female that encountered him in the woods, You never forgot it !!! I continue to hike, but now I make sure I have some protection with me. I have encountered other characters that were creepy like him. I am going to continue hiking and will put up a fight if need be. I won’t be bullied .

Quite informative. I was really surpised though that you didn’t have Albert Fish in here. I was just piece on him the other day and this guy really did a mind “Explitive” on me. So bad so that I had to watch some Christian comedy after words.
This guy killed children and would eat them. He then sent a letter to one of the families. In his confession to the police he included a recipie that included onions and carrots. This guys was a real piece of work. But this is the sort of stuff I look up around halloween.

Tough stuff though because all of this is real. Sick world we live in. God help us all.

DUUUUUUUDE!!!! How do you not have The Grey Man on this List?!?!?!
Albert Fish! He tortured, raped, and castrated little boys! Then… he cooked and ate them. He killed and ate a little girl named Grace, then wrote this this letter to her mother some months later:

Dear Mrs. Budd. In 1894 a friend of mine shipped as a deck hand on the Steamer Tacoma, Capt. John Davis. They sailed from San Francisco for Hong Kong, China. On arriving there he and two others went ashore and got drunk. When they returned the boat was gone. At that time there was famine in China. Meat of any kind was from $1–3 per pound. So great was the suffering among the very poor that all children under 12 were sold for food in order to keep others from starving. A boy or girl under 14 was not safe in the street. You could go in any shop and ask for steak—chops—or stew meat. Part of the naked body of a boy or girl would be brought out and just what you wanted cut from it. A boy or girl’s behind which is the sweetest part of the body and sold as veal cutlet brought the highest price. John staid there so long he acquired a taste for human flesh. On his return to N.Y. he stole two boys, one 7 and one 11. Took them to his home stripped them naked tied them in a closet. Then burned everything they had on. Several times every day and night he spanked them – tortured them – to make their meat good and tender. First he killed the 11 year old boy, because he had the fattest ass and of course the most meat on it. Every part of his body was cooked and eaten except the head—bones and guts. He was roasted in the oven (all of his ass), boiled, broiled, fried and stewed. The little boy was next, went the same way. At that time, I was living at 409 E 100 St. near—right side. He told me so often how good human flesh was I made up my mind to taste it. On Sunday June the 3, 1928 I called on you at 406 W 15 St. Brought you pot cheese—strawberries. We had lunch. Grace sat in my lap and kissed me. I made up my mind to eat her. On the pretense of taking her to a party. You said yes she could go. I took her to an empty house in Westchester I had already picked out. When we got there, I told her to remain outside. She picked wildflowers. I went upstairs and stripped all my clothes off. I knew if I did not I would get her blood on them. When all was ready I went to the window and called her. Then I hid in a closet until she was in the room. When she saw me all naked she began to cry and tried to run down the stairs. I grabbed her and she said she would tell her mamma. First I stripped her naked. How she did kick – bite and scratch. I choked her to death, then cut her in small pieces so I could take my meat to my rooms. Cook and eat it. How sweet and tender her little ass was roasted in the oven. It took me 9 days to eat her entire body. I did not fuck her tho I could of had I wished. She died a virgin.

If that’s not disturbing, I don’t know what is!

Re Countess Bathory: Please keep in mind that more than likely is the fact that she was much envied by her poorer relatives/fellow nobility, and it would not be the first time that a woman was vilified so that her property could be taken away and given to others (usually men). The more enlightened view of her is that while not being very warm and cuddly, she probably was no worse than most of her contemporaries as far as abusing her power (which was unlimited) but that the more gruesome stories are largely false, and were told so that her property could be taken and divvied up amongst her peers. She was a lone female with unlimited wealth in a bad time to be such.

Just because you’ve heard about more serial killers in the U.S., it doesn’t mean the U.S. actually has more of them.

You’ll hear more about them, because the media here covers those types of stories actively. You’ll hear more about them because we have a larger general population than many other countries (therefore would likely have a greater number than some areas even if smaller countries had a higher percentage). You’ll hear more about them because the U.S. is more capable of catching them than many other places due to the technology available to law enforcement (many countries don’t have the resources to identify those trends and pursue them as aggressively). There are also plenty of countries without much interest in human rights. There murders are allowed to happen or at least not as heavily pursued because the killings aren’t a priority for the governments. And in some of those areas, even if serial killers are caught the government has a lot of control over the media (meaning they can bury those kinds of stories if they make the country or government look bad).

Don’t make assumptions without considering all the facts.

And just for the record, the U.S. doesn’t have “complete freedom.” There are laws and restrictions in a lot of ways. And I know many Americans who wouldn’t say it’s the heart of comfort either. Every country has positive and negative sides as well as people who do very well and others who do very poorly or have traumatic experiences. We also have individuals who suffer from mental illnesses — both things that can lead to the behavior of serial killers. It’s not always about where they live….

It is very ironic that the movie “Deadly Run” was made by Hilton and his friend in 95′. It is also about a serial killer (one similar to Robert Hansen)/
It is obvious Hilton has done his homework on other serial killers and has changed his MOs over the years in order to evade capture for decades.
He is also quite capable of living “off the grid”.
It is most likely his body count tops that of Ridgeway. I would love to see many cold cases solved if someone could get Hilton to talk.
Hilton did not start killing with Meredith, that was towards the end of Hilton’s run. He is too comfortable killing and dismembering. With lack of money being an aggravating factor, Hilton went on a downward spiral. Hilton is likely the most prolific killer in the United States were he to be connected to some cold cases and other disappearances/J Does found.

Thank you, Wolkscratch, for all your hard work on Hilton’s case. I would love to have seen the pictures of the women’s clothes and purses in those sheds. There is so much evidence there, i would have made sure every little iota was bagged up and tagged. Lord knows how many victims there really are; 180+

Hilton was also all over the map, he didn’t have a “type” of preferred victim; this is where Wolfscratch’s theory of cannibalism comes into play.

You didn’t even gave a psychological reason for there behavior! I mean, yup those guys were eccentric and killing is bad, but wishing that these people should be killed, oh I am sorry, executed in worst way possible is equally barbaric and unhuman. People like these exist and will continue to exist, but if we can learn from them, so we can mitigate further, gruesome killings.
