So he was on parole when he killed Jill? Really? How on earth does that happen!? What an absolutely disgusting failure of the system! This is OUTRAGEOUS! Continue reading
The following crimes are far more gruesome and tragic than Part I, even without throwing Xmas into the mix. Have a read, and then give your family members an extra hug or two when you see them throughout the festive season. Ignore trivial fights and arguments, and be grateful that you (likely) don’t have friends, neighbours, relatives, or local Santa’s like these…
Merry Xmas to you all!
This week I’m steering away from the real-life world of criminology and delving into fiction. I started writing a novel about 9 months ago and today I’m sharing what I think will remain as the first chapter. As always, all comments and feedback are welcome.. Enjoy..
I’ve compiled a top ten list of the most horrific, individual incidents that resulted in murder in recent times. I’ve steered clear of serial killers, school shootings, bombings and the like to give all you folk some idea of the lesser known crimes that linger within the dark depths of our wonderful world.
The moral dilemma of a real-life Dexter Morgan
Work for the Miami Police Department? Tick.
Kill bad guys in his spare time? Tick.
Claim you’re doing a good deed for society? Tick.
I’m not referring to the character Dexter from the successful television series of the same name. I’m talking about a real man by the name of Manuel Pardo.
Son Of Sam –v– The Zodiac Killer
In the yellow corner, we have the curly-haired, demon-possessed, David Berkowitz aka Son of Sam with a record of 6 dead by gunshot, 7 wounded.
In the black corner, the cryptic, mysterious, date-interrupting, yet to be identified Zodiac, with 5 killings and a further 37 unsubstantiated. Zodiac, if you’d like to present me with your real name for the entry announcement, just leave a message…
Alex Kidd – The murderous little bastard
He was armed with a brutal fist, and occasionally throwing darts. THROWING DARTS!
Many of us grew up controlling this little psycho for hours on end. We’d smile with glee as we directed him this way and that so he could go about his murderous rampage, punching things, and stealing bags of money from crates that surely belonged to someone else. For those of you who weren’t as cool, you were jumping and dodging the barrels and fireballs hurled by the sociopathic Donkey Kong, or helping Super Mario stomp on his enemies a la Derek Vinyard in American History X. If the brutal stomping didn’t work, Mario could revert to fireballs as a handy alternative.
No mucking about and no undercard. First week up, I’m going straight to the heavyweights!
TED BUNDY v JEFFREY DAHMER
Bundy was a charmer. He was handsome, charismatic, kind, and not long before the destruction started, he enrolled in University as a psych major. But the rejection from a former girlfriend saw it all go downhill very quickly…
Dahmer might rhyme with charmer but he was far from it. He was a loner, outcast, and homosexual to boot. Not that there’s anything wrong with that (sorry Seinfeld). But he had an appetite for flesh, bone, skulls, acid, sex and body parts…
This bout will go all the way folks. Here they come…
