Serial Killers Allegedly Involved in Forty or More Murders.
Shen Changyin and Shen Changping started a business selling Lanzhou auto parts but it didn’t go very well. Faced with severe financial loss, they teamed up with three women (victims who promised to get them more victims if they spare them) and embarked on a new business model – serial killers. Within less than a year – between June 2003 and August 2004 – the five had killed 11 prostitutes whose livers and/or kidneys they cut out and cooked as food. This earned them the name of Cannibal Brothers. The corpses were then burned with Sulphuric Acid and flushed down the toilet.
Chinese authorities soon traced the serial killers down and apprehended them, including their female accomplices. The brothers as well as one of the women were sentenced to death, the other two women were sentenced to 20 and 3 years in jail.
During questioning Ed Gein was asked if he had ever sexually abused or molested any of the female cadavers once he had returned to the farmhouse, he was emphatic. “Certainly not!” He found this notion abhorrent because “they smelled too bad.” Ed was also asked if he dabbled in cannibalism, again he denied these assertions. He has just messed around with the bodies. “Nothing sexual, just, well… experimental” he muttered. No, he had not consumed human flesh for any reason at all, be it sexual or just plain old hunger.
Dennis Rader “BTK Killer” would usually steal clothes from his victims house after he murdered them, he enjoyed wearing them, binding himself and taking pictures.
“I told Mrs. - Ms Vian that I had a problem with sexual fantasies, that I was going to tie her up, and that - and I might have to tie the kids up, and that she would cooperate with this - cooperate with me at the time. We went back. She was extremely nervous. Think she even smoked a cigarette. And we went back to the - one of the back - back areas of the porch, I explained to her that I had done this before, and, you know, I think she, at that point in time I think she was sick ‘cause she had a night robe on, and I think, if I remember right, she was - she had been sick. I think she came out of the bedroom when I went in the house. So anyway, we went back to her bedroom, and I proceeded to tie the kids up, and they started crying and got real upset. So I said oh, this isn’t gonna work, so we moved ‘em to the bathroom. She helped me. And then I tied the door shut. We put some toys and blankets and odds and ends in there for the kids, make them as comfortable as we could. Tied the - we tied one of the bathroom doors shut so they couldn’t open it, and we shoved - she went back and helped me shove the bed up against the other bathroom door, and then I proceeded to tie her up. She got sick, threw up. Got her a glass of water, comforted her a little bit, and then went ahead and tied her up and then put a bag over her head and strangled her.”
Shortly before Ted Bundy was executed, he revealed what he had done to Georgeann Hawkins (one of his victims). He confessed that he had parked his Volkswagen in the shadows near some bushes by the fraternity houses. He laid a crowbar and some handcuffs on the ground near the rear of the car. Hobbling around on his crutches, he asked numerous women to help him carry his books to his car until Georgeann agreed to do so. They chatted amiably as they made their way to the car. As Georgeann approached the car to deposit the books through the passenger door, Bundy scooped up the crowcar from the ground and knocked her unconscious from behind. He handcuffed her and dragged her into the car, laying her on the floor in the space from which he had removed the passenger seat. Bundy drove out into the countryside with the unconscious Georgeann on the floor. At some point during the trip she regained consciousness and according to Bundy began to speak about a Spanish test she was supposedly taking the next day. Bundy drove out onto a dirt road, dragged her out of the car into the clearing, and struck her unconscious again with the crowbar. He then took a length of cord he kept in his car and strangled her to death. He dragged the body some thirty feet away from the car into a small grove of trees, and there he carefully undressed her. Fifteen years late, on the eve of his execution, he remembered undoing a pin that had kept her pants closed - a detail police had kept confidential. He then had sex with Georgeann’s corpse until dawn.
In the morning Bundy drove away from the site, throwing out along the way various items of Georgeann’s clothing and his killing tools. By the afternoon he realised that he had made a mistake. He returned to the murder site, and retracing his route, he recovered most of the items that he had thrown from his car. One thing perplexed Bundy: He could not find one of Georgeann’s shoes. To his horror, Bundy realised that they might be back at the location where he kidnapped her. Fearing that police were searching the area and might have a description of a Volkswagen parked there last night, Bundy rode a bike back to the kidnap site. There he discovered Georgeann’s other shoe and an earring that had come off when he struck her. He took away the remaining clues to Georgeann’s fate before police could find them.
Three days later, Bundy returned to where he had left Georgeann and had sex with her decomposing corpse one more time. Then he severed her head with a hacksaw and buried it in the ground about fifty feet away. Police never learned any of this until the last days prior to Bundy’s execution.
The Torture and Murder of Junko Furuta
In November of 1988, a college student, Junko Furuta, was kidnapped by four youngsters and kept in captivity for 44 days in the house of one of the youngsters parents. To prevent persecution, one of them forced Furuta to lie to her parents, saying she fled home but was safe in a friend’s house. Beyond that, she was also obliged to lie and say she was the girlfriend of one of her captors. The parents of the youngster had thought that it was lie, but there was nothing they could do since one of the abductors was a member of yakuza and threatened to use his connections against them if they said anything to anybody.
Day 1: Abducted; maintained in captivity; obliged to show herself as the girlfriend from one of the boys; raped (over 400 times in the total); hunger and malnutrition; made to eat cockroaches and drink her own urine; forced to masturbate; forced to undress in front of others; burned with lighters & cigarettes; objects inserted in the vagina/anus.
Day 11: She was beaten countless times; face pushed against the concrete; hands tied to the roof and body utilized like a punching bag; dumbbells played on her stomach; she vomited when she tried to drink water (her stomach couldn’t accept it); tried to flee and was punished with cigarette burns on the arms; flammable liquid was poured over her feet and legs, burning them; bottle was inserted into her anus, causing wounds.
Day 20: Was unable to walk right, due to grave burns in the legs; beaten up with bamboo sticks; fireworks were introduced into the anus and inflamed; hands crushed by pesos and nails cracked; beaten up with golf club; cigarettes inserted in the vagina; beaten up with iron bars; spits of grill chicken inserted in the vagina and in the anus, causing bleeding.
Day 30: Hot wax was poured on her face; eyelids burned by lighters; needles inserted into breasts; pulled off her nipple with pliers; hot light bulb inserted in the vagina; shears inserted in the vagina, causing grave hemorrhage; incapable of urination due to this; such grave wounds that she was delayed more than an hour to crawl the stairs to the toilet; eardrums seriously damaged; extreme reduction of the size of the brain.
Day 40: She asked her torturers to “kill me and finish soon with that”.
Day 44: The four boys mutilated her body with an iron bar; she bled from the mouth and nose; burned her face and eyes with a candle; then they spilled lighter fluid on her legs, arms, face and stomach, and afterwards it burned. The final torture lasted two hours.
Junko Furuta died of shock later in the day, in pain and alone. But nothing could compare to the 44 days of suffering that passed. When her mother heard the news and the details of what had been happening to her daughter, she lost it. She had of be submitted to a psychiatric hospital. The boys alleged they didn’t know how injured Junko was, thinking that she were pretending. They concealed the body in a cylinder of 55 full gallons of cement, ridding of it in Koto, Tokyo. Finally, the boys were tried as adults and imprisoned, but their identities were kept a secret from the public, thanks to the Japanese Law concerning crimes committed by minors.
It’s hard to say which of the many Paraphilias practiced by serial killers is the most disgusting, though coprophagy - i.e., deriving sexual pleasure from eating feces - clearly ranks high on the list. Needless to say, this was a favourite pastime of the monstrously perverted Albert Fish. During Fish’s 1935 trial for the cannibal murder of little Grace Budd, his attorney cited the old man’s fondness for eating human excrement as evidence of his extreme abnormality. The prosecution countered by calling a psychiatrist who insisted that “very successful people, successful artists, successful teachers, successful financiers” regularly engaged in the same activity. Such people, he declared, were “socially perfectly all right” - a bit of testimony that left many spectators wondering who was crazier, Fish or the supposed expert witness.
Jeffrey Dahmer would keep the skulls of his victims, he would also paint them. Here he explains why:
“Personally, I found the skulls somewhat erotic. I could sit and stare or fondle them for hours, fantasizing about killing more people. I really liked the skulls. Plus, I knew that if the police ever found a real skull in my possession, it would be confiscated. The paint was a form of disguise so they wouldn’t be taken.”
