Why do they kill? What joy do serial killers get from murdering other people in such a brutal manner? Worse still, many of these serial killers end up murdering innocent children?

Hundreds of people have tried to study the minds of these psychopaths in an attempt to understand what fueled their hatred against their victims. The various reasons that motivate murderers to commit such heinous crimes, range from the sense of power to some trauma that they went through as a child.

These psychopaths have become renowned for their gruesome crimes and the nonchalance with which they committed these crimes, which would leave any normal human being disgusted and full of remorse.

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

Real Crime by Real Killers

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

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 — is a spree separated by a few years — managed to capture and horrifically tortured 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.

True Crime Stories: A Prequel: 4 Shocking True Crime Cases
There are killers who stalk their prey, learning all they can about an intended target before striking. Some commit the act of murder out of hatred or revenge for someone in their lives. Killers like Detlev Guenzel searched for like-minded souls who would allow them to indulge in their deepest darkest fantasies. Then of course, there are those who brutally murder for no apparent reason whatsoever.

Each of the four true crime murder cases in this true crime anthology are all different from each other in many ways. The wife who was cast aside for a much younger model; the vore who sought out a willing participant in the act of consensual homicide and cannibalism; the young man who butchered his elderly neighbours; and the man whose partners either disappeared or turned up dead over the period of 54 years.

For these true crime murder stories we delve into the background of each killer, the acts they committed, and the criminal investigation that brought them down. We look at why they killed, even when there seems to be no apparent motive. True murder cases like these are hard to fathom, and will leave you wondering about the horrors of humanity. True crime stories are the most frightening of all, as you discover what people have the capability of doing to others.

This is a prequel to Jack Rosewood's best true crime books series, True Crime Stories.

Chilling Investigations Of Some Our Histories Most Unfamiliar True Crime Stories

Conviction is a very important part of providing justice. When a crime has been committed, it is essential for the perpetrator to be punished. In that way, although the family of the victims won’t always be able to make sense of what happened, they will still understand that nobody is above the law.

Publicizing the criminal’s modus operandi is sometimes good - the citizens will be well aware of their tactics and they can take better care of themselves. On the other hand, it can also be bad, because “would be” criminals and serial killers are also watching and they might like the idea. Such was the case of Eddie Seda.

Other than him, 4 others wreaked havoc in different places, at various times: There was the man who killed prostitutes in his own home (with his family in it), a man who claimed to have killed 600 hundred women when only 3 victims were verified, a father who brought his son to “hunt” some humans, and a husband who killed his wife when she learned of his lies.

How did they do it? And how did the law authorities catch them?

How would a mother feel if her young son became a victim of a notorious serial killer who had already killed more than a hundred boys? Luis Alfredo Garavito raped and killed 140 youngsters in Colombia-- each of these murders was verified, but they suspected there were more. He did the crimes alone, and for many years, he had escaped the law. How did the police capture “The Beast”?

Would it drive you out of your mind if you claimed that you were wrongfully accused and yet, you spent more than 6 decades in prison? William George Heirens was known as the Lipstick Killer, but apparently, his incarceration was filled with controversies. Did the police just use the 17 year old as their legal scape goat, or was he truly guilty?

To what extent can paranoid schizophrenia ruin a young man’s mind? Herbert Mullin grew up in a loving family-- he was well-educated, a gentleman, and a doe-eyed, soft-spoken young man, but he killed 13 people and claimed that he did it because he wanted to save California from an impending earthquake. Was his schizophrenia real, or was it just an escape route?

Serial Killers True Crime: 10 Sickening True Crime Stories Of Serial Killers That Tortured, Hacked And Butchered Their Victims (Cold Cases)

10 Sickening True Crime Stories Of Serial Killers That Tortured, Hacked And Butchered Their Victims

Get Your FREE BONUSES When You Get This Book!

People kill for many reasons, some of them understandable, but others are totally unfathomable. However, more gruesome than killing by usual means like stabbing, shooting or poisoning, is the act of butchery after the murder.

The motives for murder and serial killing, according to psychologists, range from thrill seeking and anger to attention seeking and financial gain. Although it might seem sickening, these killers and psychopaths exist in the past and the present time, and some of them still have their freedom and are lurking in different corners of the world.

Mutilating, dismembering, slaughtering and, even worse, eating a fellow human is beyond reason; an act that is horrific and probably not the work of a sane individual.

This book lists the most disgusting and disconcerting crimes in history: various stories of strange serial killers who chopped up, violated, cooked, and ate their victims.

From real-life vampires and werewolves who drank blood and ate raw human flesh, to butcher killers who mutilate, sexually abuse, chop and eat their victims for reasons of Satanism, sexual gratification and revenge upon society.

This book is jam-packed with mystery, gore and unbelievable true stories of serial killers.

Public Enemies: 5 True Crime Gangster Stories from the Roaring Twenties(Vol 1)

Public Enemies – True Crime Gangster Stories from the Roaring Twenties

From the era of gangsters, molls and prohibition, almost (but not quite), lost in the mists of time, these tales romp along with plenty of action and recreate the atmosphere of this exciting and dangerous era using the vernacular of the times.

You’ll have heard of most of these notorious criminals, but possibly not so much about one or two of them. All of them were real, ruthless hoodlums, and all had their "15 minutes of fame", leaving trails of death and mayhem behind them. Most did not live to an old age, and those that did were probably in jail.

Their escapades were daring and reckless and many paid the ultimate price in the end.

Volume 1 contains

• Lucky Luciano –From Streetwise Kid to the Father of Organized Crime
Leaving poverty ravaged Sicily for New York with his family at the age of 10; Lucky was running his own protection racket and making a name for himself whilst still in his teens. Inevitably, he moved on to become the undisputed boss of organized crime in the USA, but it was his own ‘family’s’ involvement in prostitution which landed him a jail sentence of 30 to 50 years. It didn’t end there however as he continued to run the family affairs from prison where Lady Luck visited him with an offer he couldn’t refuse.

• Bugsy Siegel and “The Flamingo Hotel”
Through his gambling and bootlegging operations, plus numerous ruthless contract murders, Bugsy Siegel established himself as a key member of “The Syndicate” in New York. Relocating to Las Vegas with the blessing of Lucky Luciano in 1945 to expand the organizations activities, he built the famous Flamingo Club and Casino in the desert of Las Vegas using money provided by the East Coast mobsters. The hopelessly mismanaged project went way over budget, implicating Bugsy in the ‘misappropriation’ of funds and enraging his bosses – Bugsy’s day were numbered.

• Dutch Schultz – Beer Baron and Vicious Killer
From the slums of New York, Dutch Schultz rose through the ranks of crime to be named “the nation’s top gangster” by the FBI. Claiming to be a good guy simply supplying people with the beer they wanted, (illegally of course), he was also responsible for killing at least two of his own men he suspected of ‘skimming’ more of the proceeds than was due to them.

• Hymies Weiss - The Man Al Capone Feared
Earl Wojciechowski was born on Jan 25th 1898 in Chicago, but over time became known as Hymie Weiss, eventually teaming up with Dean O'Banion the leader of the North Side Gang who he succeeded after his murder in 1924. Hymie swore to avenge his friends death and waged wore on the Torrio-Capone criminal empire, even attempting to assassinate Capone himself. Violent gun battles on the streets of Chicago were regular occurrences during this period as the gangs fought for control of the lucrative bootlegging and other rackets - things had to come to a head sooner or later.

• Wilbur Underhill – The Tri-State Terror
It took a 24 man task force to bring down Mad Dog Wilbur Underhill in the end. During 12 years of rampaging through the Southwest he was sentenced to life for a murder in Oklahoma, and received another life sentence in Kansas after escaping jail in a ten man breakout and murdering a policeman. Suspected of involvement in the famous Kansas City Massacre, Wilbur began his life of crime as a burglar, and quickly moved on to armed robbery and murder.

Every single person is unique; with different wants, needs, likes, dislikes and hates. Serial killers, however, have one thing in common, they kill, for diverse reasons and for various outcomes.

Their ability to take lives easily, though, is mind-boggling. Some of them kill one or two but some also kill hundreds. It is somehow hard to fathom how these killers can do such gruesome deeds and to dig deeper into their stories can certainly be thought-provoking.

The mentality of serial killers throughout the world’s history is something that will always be a curious mystery. What motivates them to kill, is something that we cannot easily understand. Some have rather simplistic, and even personal, reasons for killing: jealousy, self-inadequacy, self-confirmation, attention, self-gain and revenge.

Some take lives in order to take vengeance on the government and even include solving societal problems as their main goal. Psychopaths of this type usually like playing the role of a “supreme being” who aim to eliminate people that they consider not worthy to live.

From the premier poisoners and virgin murderers to baby killers and mysterious point-blank gunmen, this book offers a rich history of serial killers that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
