Murder Most Foul No. 98
Charlie Starkweather had a speech impediment and his eyesight was poor. But this 19-year-old Nebraskan misfit also had the swagger of James Dean – and 14-year-old Caril Ann Fugate was impressed and dangerously devoted. The pair (below) embarked on a horrific two-month killing spree which shocked 1950s America – and which, for some, evoked memories of an earlier pair of deadly outlaws. Starkweather and his 14-year-old accomplice begin our new series Couples Who Kill with “11 Victims For ‘The Teenage Bonnie & Clyde,’” Don’t miss it.
Equally shocking were the exploits of Jaroslav Stodola and his wife Dana Stodolova – the Czech Republic’s most prolific known serial killers, and this edition’s second Couples Who Kill. See “Nice Couple” Killed Eight.
She looked like she should be advertising apple pies, but motherly nurse Jane Toppan (right) had a secret: she wanted to kill more people than anyone who had ever lived. Don’t miss her story, “I Want To Kill More People Than Any Other Woman,”.
Liverpool-born serial killer William MacDonald (below) became infamous across Australia as The Mutilator, because of the devastation he wreaked on his victims’ bodies. Don’t miss his chilling tale in Sydney’s Notorious Mutilator Is Dead.
