the-softest-of-grunge asked:
If you were to kill someone, how would you do it?

that’s a really good question. Im like most women in the sense that i would probably use poison but it would be from a plant or nicotine so its not so easily figured out. something that you wouldnt look for unless you were told to look for.


“There is no known perversion that Albert Fish did not practice,” wrote the prison psychiatrist who interviewed 66-year-old Albert Fish in 1934. A house painter and father of six children, Fish also happened to be a multiple killer, child molester, and cannibal. Claiming to have attacked over 100 children. This he revealed in a confession so shocking that even the prosecuting attorneys were loath to read it aloud in court. Albert fish had been born in Washington, DC, his father, a riverboat captain, was seventy-five at the time. Various members of the family had mental problems and one suffered from religious mania. One brother was feeble-minded and another an alcoholic. His father died when Fish was five years old, and he was placed in an orphanage, from which he regular ran away. When he was 49 years old, his wife left him for another man. After that, Fish’s personality steadily deteriorated while his behavior became increasingly bizarre, and finally murderous. His victims were children who were deceived into his clutches by his friendly manner and grandfatherly appearance. A vicious sadist who performed unspeakable tortures on young victims. Fish also a masochist who forced his own children to beat him. He also liked to collect news clippings on latter-day cannibals like Fritz Haarmann, otherwise known as “The Hanover Vampire.”

In 1928, Fish indulged his taste for human flesh on a 12-year-old girl named Grace Budd. She was the daughter of parents who knew and trusted Fish. When fish offered to take her to a party for children, they let him do so without any misgivings. Instead of a party, Fish took Grace to his cottage in Westchester county, New York. Stripping himself naked, Fish strangled the child, and then beheaded and dismembered her with a meat cleaver. He then cooked her body parts into a stew seasoned with onions and carrots. Albert Fish then consumed this grisly repast down to the last awful morsel, then he vanished. Several years later, Grace’s parents recieved a letter from fish, telling them exactly what he had done to their little girl. The letter he had sent to the girl’s parents was traced back to a rented room in Manhattan. Fish was apprehended and brought to trial soon after. The jury discounted his insanity plea and sentenced him to death by electric chair.

A routine X-ray revealed 29 seperate needles inserted around his groin, several were large sailmaker’s needles, which were endangering his bladder and vital organs. Fish confessed that he had been inserting and removing needles for years. He also liked sticking needles into his child victims. He always seemed to enjoy inflicting pain, even soaking bits of cotton wool, saturating them with alcohol, inserting them in his rectum and setting fire to them. He was executed on January 16, 1936. In New York’s Sing Sing. While waiting to be executed, in his final minutes, he remarked that this was “the supreme thrill, the only one I haven’t tried.” He even help the executioner to attach the electrodes to his leg. In his own words “I learned to like the taste of human flesh many years ago during a famine in China. It is something like veal. Little girls have more flavor than little boys.”

  • 331 wounds inflicted with six different weapons: Yoga store worker found guilty of bludgeoning colleague to death
  • Jury convicts Brittany Norwood of first-degree murder in one hour
  • 29-year-old used at least six weapons to kill Jayna Murray in Maryland shop
  • Victim had at least 331 wounds and was alive for the duration of the attack
  • Murderer had allegedly been caught stealing pants from the store

Brittany Norwood, 29, used at least half a dozen weapons from inside the store to kill Jayna Murray, 30, in a ‘prolonged and brutal attack’ on March 11.

These included a hammer, wrench, knife and peg used to hold up a mannequin.

Norwood attacked Miss Murray inside the Lululemon Athletica shop in Bethesda, Maryland - a Washington, DC suburb - and then staged a robbery.

She used numerous weapons to kill her, then lied and told police that they had been attacked by masked men.

Her defence lawyer conceded that Norwood killed Miss Murray, but said it happened during a fight and wasn’t premeditated.

Murray allegedly found a pair of pants in Norwood’s purse at the end of the work day, when they did mutual bag checks, as per store policy.

Norwood initially said she’d bought them from another employee, but Murray called the other employee, they denied it, and Murray confront Norwood for stealing.


The Snowtown murders, also known as the Bodies in Barrels murders, refers to the murders of 11 people in South Australia, Australia between the dates of August 1992 and May 1999. The name “Snowtown murders” refers not to the location of the murders but the location where the bodies were found. Only one of the eleven victims was killed in Snowtown, and none of the victims or the perpetrators were from that town.

The crimes were uncovered when the remains of eight victims were found in barrels of acid located in a rented former bank building on 20 May 1999. The town of Snowtown is 145 kilometres (90 mi) north of Adelaide, the capital of South Australia. The bodies had been held in a series of locations in South Australia at different times and were only moved to Snowtown in early 1999 after the accused became aware that police were investigating them regarding several missing person cases, very late in a crime spree that had spanned almost seven years. The eight bodies were found in six plastic barrels in the disused bank vault. Three days later two bodies were found buried in a backyard in the Adelaide suburb of Salisbury North. By the end of June, nine of the 10 victims had been identified. The discoveries followed a lengthy, covert criminal investigation by South Australian Police. During the investigation two deaths already known to authorities were found to have been perpetrated by the same murderers.

After a series of pre-trial hearings, the first of the accused to be sentenced was James Vlassakis, who was given four life sentences on 21 June 2001 after pleading guilty to four murders. Later that year, John Bunting, Mark Haydon and Robert Wagner each pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of murder. Many of the charges against Haydon were later dropped due to insufficient evidence.

The Supreme Court trial for Wagner and Bunting began on 14 October 2002 and within a short space of time the court experienced difficulties with the jury. At least one juror refused to continue due to the horror of the evidence and some sources report that a total of three jurors withdrew from the panel for this reason. Both Bunting and Wagner were found guilty on 8 September 2003. Bunting was convicted of 11 murders and Wagner, who had pleaded guilty to three murders, was convicted of seven; both appealed their convictions. They were each sentenced to imprisonment for life on each count to be served cumulatively; the presiding judge, Justice Brian Martin, stated that the men were “in the business of killing for pleasure” and were also “incapable of true rehabilitation”.
