    Crimes of the century: 65 years ago John Christie, one of Britain's most notoriously evil serial killers, was hanged

    John Christie is one of Britain's most notorious serial killers

    The name John Christie is enough to send a chill down the spine of anyone who remembers his shocking case. The serial killer was hanged 65 years ago next month. But who was he? How many people did he kill, and where exactly is Rillington Place?

    Christie murdered at least eight people by strangling them at this flat in 10 Rillington Place, Notting Hill, London. He also stored the bodies there. The infamous address no longer exists, having been demolished in the 1970s to make room for council housing.

    Born in West Riding, Yorkshire, in 1899, Christie was the sixth in a family of seven children, including five girls. Serving in World War I, a mustard gas attack left him with a speech impediment and is believed to have caused neurological damage that contributed to his subsequent violent sexual urges.

    After the war, Christie turned to crime, serving several prison sentences for assault, theft, and battering a prostitute with a cricket bat. He had a tempestuous marriage to Ethel Simpson, and in 1938 the couple moved into the fateful downstairs flat of 10 Rillington Place where his campaign of terror began.

    Christie's first victim was Austrian munitions worker and part-time prostitute Ruth Fuerst, in 1943. Christie met the 21-year-old at a local cafe and strangling her during sex. He hid her body under the living room floorboards, later burying her in the garden. Soon after killing her, incredibly, he signed up as a volunteer policeman.

    Christie's next victim was Muriel Eady, 32, a colleague at the factory he worked at. He carefully planned the murder by tricking Muriel into inhaling poisonous carbon monoxide. He lured her to Rillington Place promising a special inhaler to treat her bronchitis. After she passed out, he raped and strangled her, then buried her in the garden.

    The Evans family moved into the upstairs flat at 10 Rillington Place in 1948, where baby Geraldine was born to Timothy and Beryl. The following year Timothy reported his wife and child dead -with a post-mortem revealing they had been strangled. Evans told the police Christie admitted to killing Beryl in a botched abortion.

    The police extracted a false confession from Evans and cleared Christie of involvement, with the prosecution even using lying Christie as a witness! Evans was hanged in March 1950. (He received a posthumous pardon, and it was this case that played a major part in the UK's eventual abolition of capital punishment in 1965.)

    Christie strangled his wife Ethel in bed in December 1952 and for weeks lied to worried relatives, saying she had travelled to her native Sheffield. He pawned her wedding ring days later and forged her signature to empty her bank account.

    In the space of the following three months in 1953, Christie murdered three more women. Kathleen Maloney was a prostitute who worked in nearby Ladbroke Grove. She was poisoned by carbon monoxide, raped and then strangled.

    Rita Nelson was a visitor from Belfast who was in London seeing her sister when she met Christie and he charmed her into coming home with him. Once she was in Rillington Place, Rita met the exactly the same fate the Kathleen Maloney had.

    Hectorina McLennan was a woman who Christie let stay at Rillington place, she too ended up poisoned, raped, and strangled in 1953.

    All of Christie's victims were found at Rillington Place, some of the bodies were buried in the garden, while bodies were also hidden inside a gap in the kitchen that Christie papered over.

    Christie moved out of the flat just after his final murder. His landlord allowed the resident of the top floor, Beresford Brown, to use what was Christie's kitchen. Brown made the shocking discovery of some of Christie's victims when he started some DIY.

    A city-wide hunt for Christie was launched, and he was caught at a cafe near Putney Bridge a week later. In his pocket was a newspaper clipping about Timothy Evans, the innocent man hanged three years earlier.

    While in custody, Christie confessed to seven murders: the three women found in the kitchen alcove, his wife, and the two women buried in the back garden. He also admitted being responsible for the murder of Beryl Evans - which Timothy Evans hanged for in 1950. Although Christie denied killing the baby, he was widely seen as guilty.

    Crowds gathered around the flat where Christie committed his evil acts as the police searched for forensic evidence. Back then, Notting Hill was an incredibly run-down part of the capital, a world away from the upmarket area made famous in the Hugh Grant movie.

    Ultimately, Christie was tried only for the murder of his wife Ethel. His June 1953 trial took place in the same court where Timothy Evans had been tried in 1950. Christie pleaded insanity, but doctor evaluating Christie testified in court that Christie had a hysterical personality - but was not insane.

    Christie was charged with murder in June 1953. The jury rejected Christie's plea, and after deliberating for 85 minutes found him guilty. Christie did not appeal against his conviction. The verdict made front page news.

    John Christie travels to meet his executioner. On 15 July 1953 Christie was hanged at Pentonville Prison by the same executioner, Albert Pierrepoint, who had previously hanged Evans. For many years John Christie's waxwork in the Chamber of Horrors at Madame Tussaud's was a popular tourist attraction.

    David Berkowitz



    David Berkowitz, known as Son of Sam, murdered six people in New York City from 1976 to 1977, claiming he received orders from a demon-possessed dog. He is one of the most notorious serial killers in America.

    David Berkowitz is an American serial killer who murdered six people in New York City in 1976–77, plunging the city into a panic and unleashing one of the largest manhunts in New York history. Known as Son of Sam, Berkowitz was arrested on August 10, 1977, 11 days after his last murder, and was sentenced to six consecutive 25-years-to-life terms.

    Born Richard David Falco to an impoverished Jewish mother, he was adopted by Jewish-American hardware store retailers Nathan and Pearl Berkowitz when he was only a few days old. According to some reports, David Berkowitz was an intelligent but troubled child growing up. A loner with a mean streak, he often bullied other children. Because he was close to his adoptive mother, he was deeply affected by her death when he was a teenager. At the age of 18, Berkowitz joined the U.S. Army and served in South Korea where he excelled as a proficient marksman.

    After leaving the service in 1974, Berkowitz returned to New York City. He got a job working as a letter sorter for the U.S. Postal Service and settled into an apartment in Yonkers. Neighbors and co-workers thought of him as a quiet loner, but they had no idea how lethal he was.

    Berkowitz's killing spree began on July 29, 1976, with the shooting of two teenage women outside a Bronx apartment building. At the time of the attack, Donna Lauria and Jody Valenti were sitting in Valenti's car in front of Lauria's home. Berkowitz shot the two women, killing Lauria and injuring Valenti.

    Three months later, Berkowitz struck again. He shot at a couple sitting in a parked car, severely damaging the man's skull. That November, Berkowitz attacked two teenage girls walking home. He shot both of the girls, leaving one of them a paraplegic. At the time, the police did not think these shootings were related.

    In January 1977, Berkowitz again targeted a couple sitting together in a car at night. He walked up to Christine Freund and her fiancé and fired twice, striking Freund in the head. She later died of her injuries. For all of his shootings, Berkowitz used a .44 caliber gun. As a result, the police created a special task force to hunt down the “.44-caliber killer” as he became known before adopting the “Son of Sam” moniker.

    That March, Berkowitz claimed another victim, Virginia Voskerichian, a college student. He killed her as she returned home from classes. The next month Berkowitz killed a couple, Valentina Suriani and Alexander Esau, in their parked car. At the crime scene, he left a letter addressed to NYPD Captain Joseph Borrelli and called himself “Son of Sam” for the first time. Throughout his murderous streak, Berkowitz left numerous letters near his victims’ bodies, taunting the police and eluding their capture. As a result, the media coverage of his crimes was widespread and Berkowitz relished the spotlight. All the while, New Yorkers lived in fear of being his next victim.

    Berkowitz's final attack occurred in the early hours of July 31, 1977. He shot another couple, Stacy Moskowitz and Bobby Violante, in Brooklyn. Moskowitz later died, and Violante was blinded in one eye and lost most of the vision in the other from his injuries. Fortunately for the police, a witness noticed something at the scene that helped in cracking the case.

    Arrest and Imprisonment
    At the scene of the Moskowitz-Violante shootings, a witness saw a man getting away in a car that had a parking ticket on it. Only a handful of tickets were given out that day, and one of them was for Berkowitz. The police arrested him on August 10, 1977. According to The New York Times, Berkowitz said, "Well, you've got me" when they took him into custody.

    During questioning, Berkowitz explained that he had been commanded to kill by his neighbor Sam Carr, who sent messages to Berkowitz through his dog, a demon-possessed Labrador retriever named “Harvey.” Due to his outrageous claims, Berkowitz underwent numerous psychological evaluations, but was declared “competent” to stand trial. In 1978, Berkowitz pled guilty to the six killings, as well as nearly 1,500 fires he had set in and around New York City. He received 25-years-to-life for each murder. Berkowitz’s sentencing hearing was dramatic—he tried to jump out of a window of the seventh-floor courtroom upon hearing the judge’s decision.

    Since his arrest, Berkowitz has retracted his possessed dog “Son of Sam” story—claiming “It was all a hoax, a silly hoax” as seen in his March 20, 1979 letter to his psychiatrist, Dr. David Abrahamsen. He has also made statements that he was a member of a violent satanic cult that orchestrated the murders along with fellow cult members John and Michael Carr (Sam Carr's sons). Berkowitz has been offered large sums of money for his story. However, nearly all states—including New York—have since passed laws, sometimes known as “Son of Sam laws,” that prevent convicted criminals from financially profiting from books, movies, or other enterprises related to their crimes. Although there are numerous media renditions of the Son of Sam case, Berkowitz does not receive any royalties or profit from any sales of his works or the works of others.

    In 1996, Yonkers police reopened Berkowitz’s case but due to a lack of significant findings, the investigation has been suspended, but remains unclosed. Although he has been put up for parole on numerous occasions (most recently in 2016 and he will be eligible for parole for the 16th time in 201, he has been consistently denied release. Berkowitz is currently serving his time in Shawangunk Correctional Facility in Wallkill, New York.

    Harvey Murray Glatman (December 10, 1927 – September 18, 1959) was an American serial killer active during the late 1950s. He was known in the media as "The Lonely Hearts Killer" and "The Glamour Girl Slayer". He would use several pseudonyms, posing as a professional photographer to lure his victims with the promise of a modelling career.

    Born in the Bronx to a Jewish family and raised in Colorado, Glatman exhibited antisocial behavior and sadomasochistic sexual tendencies from an early age. When he was twelve years old, his parents noticed that he had a red, swollen neck. He described having been in the bathtub, placing a rope around his neck, running it through the tub drain, and pulling it tight against his neck, "achieving some kind of sexual pleasure from this act." His mother took him to the family physician and was told he "would grow out of it."

    Glatman: "The reason I killed those girls was 'cause they asked me to. (pause) They did; all of them."
    Sgt. Friday: "They asked you to."
    Glatman: "Sure. They said they'd rather be dead than be with me."

    Watched a documnetary about 'The Cleveland Strangler': The Story of a Brutal Serial Killer and His Forgotten Victims. At least 11 black women were raped and killed on Cleveland's East side between 2007 and 2009 by a man named Anthony Sowell. It's one of the worst cases of serial murder in recent history. Sowell was able to get away with these heinous acts for two years.* These crimes say as much about the depraved killer as they do about race, class, and law enforcement in the City of Cleveland.

    Devendra Sharma - The doctor turned killer

    Devendra Sharma was a fairly successful doctor of Ayurvedic medicine but he also had a dark side. He wanted to make a quick buck boosting cars and he didn't mind the bloodshed that came with it. From 2002-2004, he stole cars and killed car drivers from many areas in and around UP, Gurgaon and Rajasthan. According to his own confession, he killed about 30-40 men, all drivers. He was sentenced to death in 2008.

    Peter Manuel is Scotland's most prolific serial killer who hanged 60 years ago this week
    Scotland’s worst serial killer murdered at least eight people during a two-year reign of terror in Lanarkshire in the 1950s.

    Peter Manuel’s shockingly evil killing spree has since been the focus of books, TV dramas and film.

    Violent and sadistic, Manuel had previous convictions - at the age of 16 he was imprisoned for nine years after committing a spell of sexual assaults. Then, in 1955, he successfully conducted his own defence on a rape charge. When he finally hanged at Barlinnie Prison on July 11, 1958; he was one of the last prisoners to die on the Glaswegian gallows.

    Peter Manuel's first victim Anne Kneilands was just 17 years old when he killed her. In January 1956, teenager Anne Kneilands was stalked at a golf course before being raped and bludgeoned to death with a length of iron. She was Manuel's first murder victim. Police questioned Manuel, but he escaped arrest when his father gave him an alibi. Two years later he confessed to the crime.

    But it was the triple murder of a family in Burnside in 1956 that really shocked the nation.

    It was September 1956, when the bodies of Marion Watt, 45, her 17-year-old daughter Vivienne, and Marion's sister Margaret, 41, were all found dead at the Watts's home in Burnside, Glasgow. They had been shot.

    At the time of this triple murder, Peter Manuel had been out on bail and some police suspected him. However, initially, the prime suspect was Marion's own husband, William Watt, who had been on a fishing holiday in Ardrishaig when his family were slaughtered.

    Incredibly, William Watt - Marion's husband - was accused of driving 90 miles through the night, faking a break-in to his own house, murdering his family, and driving back. Both a ferryman and a motorist claimed to have seen him out at places Watt didn't tell police about.

    It did later emerge that William Watt had numerous affairs during his marriage, but there was still no motive to kill. Yet he remained the main suspect until the Smart family murder just a few miles away - when the police realised that there was a serial killer on the loose

    The Smart family - Peter, 45, Doris, 42, and 10-year-old Michael were shot dead at home in the early hours of New Year's day, 1958. After killing them Manuel stayed in their home for nearly a week; eating leftovers from their Hogmanay meal and even feeding the family cat, before stealing bank notes kept in the house and the family's car.

    But before the Smarts were murdered, Manuel claimed other victims: Newcastle taxi driver Sydney Dunn, 36, was shot dead in December 1957. His body was found on moorlands soon after, when Manuel had already returned to Lanarkshire. Manuel was never tried for this murder, as it took place in England with a different legal jurisdiction.

    Twenty days after Sydney Dunn's murder, Isabelle Cooke, 17, disappeared after leaving home for a school dance at Uddingston, also in December 1957. Manuel stalked, raped and strangled her, before burying her in this nearby field. As with Dunn's murder, Cooke's disappearance was not initially connected to Manuel.

    Manuel's trial at the Glasgow High Court was sensational. The killer sacked his lawyers to conduct his own defence - and of course was found guilty. The jury heard how Manuel had calmly snacked on Dairylea cheese triangles, as his victims - Peter and Doris Smart and their son Michael - lay dead nearby.

    William Watt - called as witness - was even carried out of court in Glasgow on a stretcher after collapsing during the murder trial.

    Manuel was convicted in May and hanged at Barlinnie Prison on 11 July 1958. He wrote this chilling rhyme: 'I murdered Isabella (sic) Cook/And young Anne Knielands too/Shot the Watts and shot the Smarts/And Sidney (sic) Dunn I slew/I did these deeds without a doubt/My guilt was found by law/I'm Peter Anthony Manuel/The Rat of Birkenshaw'.

    The story of Peter Manuel continues to fascinate. Documents relating to the case have been sealed until 2033, further fueling the macabre appeal of this twisted killer's case.

    Ed Gein

    This man's life is like a horror story. He exhumed corpses from local graveyards and fashioned trophies and keepsakes from their bones and skin.

    Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho was inspired by Gein, but he was actually even more deranged than the character in that movie.
