Edmund Kemper: The True Story of The Brutal Co-ed Butcher (Real Crime by Real Killers) (Volume 2)

Real Crime by Real Killers

A series where we explore how normal individuals turned their darkest fantasies into a reality.

Edmund Emil Kemper III achieved notoriety as a serial killer when he took the lives of 10 people between August 27, 1964, and April 21, 1973. His victims included his adoptive grandparents, six co-eds from the University of Santa Cruz, his mother, and his mother's friend.  This book explored the life of Kemper from his abusive childhood to his sentencing in November 1973.

The horror of Kemper's actions go beyond the killing of his victims; it was what he did with his victims' bodies after killing them. Necrophilia, cannibalism, and dismemberment were all part his routine in his attempts to satiate his morbid desires.  Just as terrifying as his dark fantasies were his ability to appear and function as an average person, allowing him to avoid raising suspicion in those he interacted with, including law enforcement.  

Contrary to the myth that serial killers kill indiscriminately, Kemper’s killing spree may have been rooted in the hatred that he felt for his mother. In an interview after his capture,  he admitted that he was intentionally developing his killing skills with each co-ed that he killed. He was training for the ultimate murder, which was the killing of his mother. 

From beginning to end, the book provides insights to why Kemper became a serial killer as well his mindset behind the killings.

True Crime Stories Volume 1: 12 Terrifying True Crime Murder Cases (List of Twelve)

You are about to witness how 12 deranged individuals turned their darkest fantasies into a reality!

What drives a mother to shoot her two daughters at the dinner table? Why would a petite woman shoot-up the grocery store where she worked and murder one of her co-workers? And why would an on-duty police officer commit three murders and an armed robbery?

List of Twelve Volume 1 examines these and other horrific crimes and delves deep into the grotesque thinking of the monstrous individuals who perpetrated them.

Twelve murders are profiled, and each profile offers a personal background of the offender, a detailed description of the crime, the investigation that ensued and the eventual sentencing.

Included are profiles of Robert Beaver, an 18-year-old who massacred his entire family, and the bizarre life of Luke Magnotta, who videotaped himself stabbing a man to death with an ice pick and then mailed his body parts to political offices and schools.

Unlike other books on the subject, List of Twelve Volume 1 takes the reader right into the dark minds of the murderers, so you can better understand why they committed their crimes.

Read on if you dare. But be aware that you're about to witness their darkest fantasies...

True Crime Stories Volume 2: 12 Terrifying True Crime Murder Cases (List of Twelve)

Have you ever wondered what is in the mind of a killer? Are you fascinated by what makes someone snap and kill, or carry out a carefully planned murder?

In this second book in the series, List of Twelve Volume 2, author Ryan Becker examines 12 individuals who did just that and became notorious as a result.

From Blaine Norris and Ryan Trimble, who conspired to commit bloody murder for the sake of a film, to James Edward Pough who became a mass shooter after his car was repossessed, it is a frightening yet fascinating look at the sometimes-trivial things which set people onto a path of brutal killing and terror.

Each one made their darkest fantasies into a reality when they made the decision to kill and each one has earned their own terrible place in this gruesome hall of fame.

Get a copy of List of Twelve: Volume 2 and be prepared for an insight into the darkest recesses of dangerous minds like no other book before it.

Robert Berdella: The True Story of a Man Who Turned His Darkest Fantasies Into a Reality (Real Crime By Real Killers Vol) (Volume 1)

One man’s Robert Berdella is another’s Kansas City Butcher.

We may not always see what truly hides within the minds and hearts of certain people, and where we believe is a good, pure individual, lays a terrible murderer capable of the most horrible acts. Robert Berdella was one such man, a helpful and friendly individual who — in a spree separated by a few years — managed to capture and horrifically torture seven young men, murdering six along the way. Control and dominance were his tools, the pain was his method. The Kansas City Butcher had no mercy, and his victims soon learned that he had no limits in terms of defiling or humiliating their bodies, minds, and spirits once they were bound and gagged. __________________________________________________________________________________________________ 

Robert Berdella: The True Story of a Man Who Turned His Darkest Fantasies Into a Reality is a book that recounts the tale of the Kansas City Butcher, a man capable of committing the most truly degrading acts on his victims, a monster who will never be forgotten by the families of those young men whose lives he destroyed. Be warned, reader, you aren’t just about to read about Bob Berdella and his acts. You are about to walk into his very mind.

From Research to Practice in Child and Adolescent Mental Health (IACAPAP)
From Research to Practice in Child and Adolescent Mental Health has been shaped to reflect the mental health needs of children and adolescents in low and middle income countries of the world. It also includes chapters on topics based on research and practice in high income countries which may have lessons and implications universally. The first section of the book takes a child and adolescent mental health services perspective encompassing epidemiology, mental health needs, and selected policy issues. The second section provides summaries of research findings into the mechanisms for problems frequently encountered in child and adolescent psychiatric practice: schizophrenia, mood disorders, and sleep problems. The third and last section is about interventions and practice. It describes the treatment gap between low and middle income countries in relation to child and adolescent mental health and shows how professionals or lay people may be trained to effectively deliver interventions.

This monograph has been produced for the 21st congress of the International Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions (IACAPAP) to be held in Durban, South Africa, in 2014. This is the first congress of IACAPAP in Africa, and it takes place at an appropriate time in view of the continent’s burgeoning child population, significant economic growth and wish to improve the populations’ health.
