The devil knew when to look attractive, and Ted Bundy was handsome, cultured, and charming. He was strangling and mutilating his victims, displaying their lopped off heads in his apartment, having sex with the corpses, until putrefaction made it unbearable. Then he was simply the devil. By 1989 he was executed in the electric chair at age 43. He confessed to 30 murders, but there were possible at least 4 more. He was an insatiable killer, and a law student who began killing at 14.
Richard Trenton Chase (May 23, 1950 – December 26, 1980) was an American serial killer who killed six people in the span of a month in California. He earned the nickname The Vampire of Sacramento due to his drinking of his victims’ blood and his cannibalism. He did this as part of a delusion that he needed to prevent Nazis from turning his blood into powder via poison they had planted beneath his soap dish.
"We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another." ~ Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, father of the atomic bomb.
