Description

Clare Hart described as too trusting. "She thinks the best in everyone," a neighbour who knew her said. "She’s the type to speak to strangers…"

So far in the American Ghouls series we have covered some notorious serial killers of the 20th century-Albert Fish, Ed Gein, Richard Ramirez, Ed Kemper, Gary Heidnik, Randy Kraft and Chris Wilder. This month, the ghoul described on these pages has faded from the memories of the most erudite crime writers. He was arrested in 1872 for the murder of a four-year-old boy, which he readily confessed to, along with that of a nine-year-old girl several weeks previously, while he, himself, was only 14 years old. Jesse Pomeroy was one of the earliest, and perhaps most unusual, American ghoul on record…

Twenty-One years ago a housewife took a short-cut via a lonely footpath on her way home. It proved to be the route to a horrific murder.
