Fernando Hernandez Leyva
A mysterious person with not much detail about his killings and life as a child and as a killer. He was born in 1964, and his childhood is a mystery, so we don’t know what made him into a serial killer of over 100 people.

I’m on #facebook ( as well as #twitter )

I’ve had a “like page” for a while. I’ve just never bothered with an actual profile. The down side is that I rely on someone else to 100% run my author page. Which, I imagine, isn’t very nice of me.

So, I now have a facebook profile as well. I welcome anyone to friend me. I won’t report anyone (evidently saying you don’t know someone gets requesters in trouble).

So, you can hang out with me – Profile (NEW)Like PageTwitter

A Little More on My #AtoZChallenge #SerialKillers

FYI – Next Sunday I’ll try to get a sort of Q&A in. I’ve noticed some questions on some of the serial killer posts…I’ll get those and as many new ones answered as I can for next Sunday. So, I hope you’ll stop back.

Anyway –

It’s Sunday and there’s no letter scheduled for today. So, for those strolling around the web today, I thought I’d bring you a bit of news. I was actually thrilled to hear about. However, since I don’t have $300K laying around, looks like I’m out of luck 😦

Jeffrey Dahmer’s childhood home is for sale. Yes. Really. FOR SALE!

It honestly looks like a home that should be in a horror movie

It’s on two wooded acres in Akron, Ohio. It’s 3 bedrooms and 2000 sq ft.

Surrounded by wooded land – I can envision someone tripping trying to get away.

He killed his very first victim there, a hitchhiker for those interested, and buried him in the wooded area behind his home. The body wasn’t found until Dahmer gave it up after his arrest after killing 16 more people after moving to Wisconsin.

Lovely deck with spiral stairs.

The home, while not looking like too much from the outside – is beautiful inside.

The windows are magnificent.

Evidently, this home was sold to a musician (who didn’t want neighbor complaints while practicing) in 2005. It seems the agent selling it this time around, before giving any actual home details, let’s people know about Dahmer and his first victim saying it clears out about 50% of all inquiries right off the bat.

Even more on this sale here

Keep in mind, the first victim went missing in 1978. He was arrested in 1991. (And murdered in 1994 by a fellow prison mate.)

The home was on the market in 2012 as well for a little over $300K – no takers, and eventually it was pulled from sale.

It’s all over the internet – more here

Here’s an image of the crime scene while they were recovering the body.

Jeffrey Dahmer was known for raping, torturing and dismembering his victims

I imagine I should have gone to college for something else. I would love to interview mass murderers and serial killers and create non-fiction books. While I don’t condone what they’ve done, I find the criminal mind fascinating.

We humans are so difficult to figure out.

So, who has a spare $295,000?

#AtoZChallenge #Theme #SerialKIllers E

Erzsebet Bathory / Elizabeth Bathory aka The Blood Countess

Elizabeth thought that if she was to lose her vanity, vitality and sexual drive that she would hence forth forfeit her chances at attaining more power. Thus being power driven and hungry, she proceeded to attain that goal at any cost.
For years Elizabeth indulged herself in these horrid actions with the help of a “witch”? named Dorotta Szentes. Elizabeth would hunt for these girls at night along the countryside in which she would hang them alive and naked upside down by chains wrapped around their ankles. She would bathe in the blood that drained from the victims slit throats while the fluid of life remained warm.
As she continued these horrid acts she would drink blood from a golden flask but after as she craved the blood more she would drink directly from the vein of the virgins. However after years of murder and torture Elizabeth began to notice that the blood of peasants had little effect on her precious skin. The low grade blood was no longer showing the effect that was needed thus she needed better grade blood.
To attain her new goals, Elizabeth established an academy in the castle offering up to 25 girls at a time from aristocratic descent to finish their schooling with grace and etiquette in order to achieve the “right”? connections.
By the end 600 girls were reported vanished. Dorka and her witches were burned at the stake as was customary. Katarina was seen as just another victim to be set free. Elizabeth still could not be executed due to her noble birth. Elizabeth was sealed into a closet in her castle and never let out. She never regretted one horrid murder. Elizabeth Bathory died four years later.

By last name again – one that absolutely HAS to be mentioned
(curious about serial killers and what I think? Look here)
Jeffrey Dahmer
Born in Milwaukee on May 21, 1960. He killed his first murder victim, Steven Hicks, with a blow to the head in 1978. Dahmer killed 17 men, molesting some of them, between 1978 to 1991. Once caught, he was sentenced to 15 consecutive life terms in 1992. On November 28, 1994, Dahmer was murdered by fellow prisoner Christopher Scarver.

This one we’re going by last name for 😉

Andrew Cunanan
Born on August 31, 1969 in San Diego, California. He settled in San Francisco’s Castro district and socialized with older, wealthy gay men while indulging heavily in drugs. It’s unclear what set him off but he began a cross-country killing spree of five known murders – the last of which was fashion designer Gianni Versace. Cunanan killed himself on a Miami houseboat in 1997.
