“It must have been about 12.15 a.m. when we left the hotel. The night was fine so I suggested a walk. Doreen agreed. I don’t remember the direction we took… The next thing I recall is lighting a cigarette. As I was flicking the match away I saw blood on my hands…”
With these weasel words, sadistic double-killer Neville Heath attempted to rehabilitate himself in the pages of a national newspaper – three days before he was due to be hanged. Rarely seen since its first printing, this astonishing account demands to be read – but don’t forget to add a pinch of salt. It begins on page 36.
The death in late November of Lawrencia “Bambi” Bembenek ended an astonishing career. Model, Bunny Girl, police officer, femme fatale, prisoner, artist, folk hero – but was she a murderer? Her dying wish was to prove that she was innocent. Judge for yourself as we present all the facts in one place for the first time – beginning on page 12.
How does a person end up in our America’s Most Evil series? Sadly, there’s no shortage of candidates, most of whom have killed more than once, often just for the thrill of it. In fact, motive is perhaps the most intriguing aspect of these cases. For instance, this month’s article in the series focuses on a loathsome duo, Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris. Together they cruised Californian beaches in their murder-wagon, looking for young women to rape and kill. What made them do it? Read “Freaks Went Shopping For Girls To Kill,”
And then, having read, why not write – and let us know YOUR views on these and other cases? We’d love to hear from you.
