After his arrest and while waiting to go to the electric chair, Ted Bundy, who was apparently somewhat intelligent in addition to being absolutely lethal, uncorked quite a few pithy one-liners. Here we present 14 of them courtesy of BuzzFeed along with our brief responses to Bundy’s “wit and wisdom.”
“We serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands, we are everywhere. And there will be more of your children dead tomorrow.” (Probably an exaggeration. Although there are certainly plenty of serial killers, I feel confident they are still a very small segment of the population).

In our modern world of supermax prisons overflowing with gang members, it might be difficult to imagine Alcatraz as a place criminals feared. But the men who spent time locked away on that now famous island prison would probably tell us that today’s inmates have it easy.
The small, rocky island of Alcatraz is located in San Francisco Bay, and sat unused until 1847, when the US Army claimed it as a military fortification. Initially a symbol of military strength, the fortress of Alcatraz included long-range iron cannons and 15-inch Rodman guns. Within twenty years, the modernization of weaponry rendered these defenses, and therefore the fortress, obsolete. At about the same time, the Army found itself in need of a military prison. The natural isolation made Alcatraz the ideal location for this purpose, and soon the fortress was transformed. In 1861, the island of Alcatraz began its 102-year history of housing prisoners, first as an army penitentiary and then as a federal prison.

Damien Echols was wrongfully convicted of murder and sentenced to death in Arkansas in 1994. He spent the next 18 years on death row, suffering through a brutal and inhumane ordeal that would probably drive most of us insane. He persevered, however, and with the help of a considerable network of support, he was unconditionally released from prison in 2011. Now he has written a memoir about his harrowing experiences, appropriately titled Life After Death.

What is a fetish, why do people have them?
The dictionary explains the word fetish as “a form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to an object, an item of clothing, a non- sexual body part, smell, activity etc.”
A fetish also known as a paraphilia is a sexual disorder where sexual arousal is accomplished by the fetishist through seeing or touching an object or item of clothing associated with sexual desire, or a non-sexual part of a desired individual. The individual becomes fixated on the object or clothing or body part whilst having sexual fantasies. The fetishist likes to have physical contact with the object and will often ask a sexual partner to be involved with the item that causes arousal.

Apparently there are times in this life when a man or a woman needs a hitman, or rather they think they need one. In reality, it’s probably very rare to actually need a murderer-for-hire, but we humans specialize in making bad decisions when locked in a cycle of negative emotions.
So what do you do if have convinced yourself you need to hire a killer to whack someone? I guess the first step would be to look around and someone reliable. Whatever you do, you don’t want to enter into a contract with a undependable hitman. One possible solution would be to surf the Darknet where hitmen allegedly advertise their services. Then, at least you could be reasonably sure that your killer was the real thing and probably wouldn’t turn you into the authorities which, after all, is precisely what you want to avoid.

The George Zimmerman trial got off to a dramatic start when attorneys delivered opening salvos laced with jokes and profanity. Prosecutor John Guy’s first words to the jury were, “Good morning,” followed immediately by a quotation of Zimmerman’s own words spoken just prior to the killing of Trayvon Martin: “Fucking punks. These assholes always get away.” Guy emphasized that “those were the words in that grown man’s mouth as he followed a seventeen-year-old boy.” To further drive home the point, Guy repeated the phrase “fucking punks” three times.

Rah row, someone is shagging the dog.
“Hidey ho neighbor!” Every now and then, we have a curious neighbor peering over our fence ostensibly to pass on social pleasantries but more likely just to snoop a little. On the other hand, sometimes we hear something that will pique our curiosity and we are the ones peeking over the neighbor’s fence, meanwhile hoping that our neighbor is unaware that we are invading their privacy.
Something very similar happened on Wednesday in Tampa; a neighbor’s suspicions became aroused because he heard some bizarre noises. As he stealthily elevated his eyes and nose above the top of the fence, he was ill prepared for what he was about to witness.

Based on the photographic evidence, 18-year-old Isabella Guzman of Aurora, Colorado is quite an attractive young lady. Her Facebook page contains selfies which seem to combine poise and a natural loveliness that are striking. Nonetheless, Isabella now stands charged with 1st-degree murder for slashing her mother, 47-year-old Yun-Mi Hoy’s, throat and stabbing her a total of 79 times in the upstairs bathroom of their suburban home on the evening of August 28, 2013.
It’s not yet clear what specifically caused Isabella to go berserk as if she were a psychopathic monster. Yet she did.

A few days ago I remarked that serious American violent crimes — which of course include sexual assaults — tend to be unimaginative. My statement was, in part, probably a defense mechanism designed to help me endure the horrific nature of the endless array of awful crimes that I cover on All Things Crime Blog. Now I’ve discovered that I was wrong, dead wrong. While sleuthing around I uncovered a horrifying case of American necrophilia that included two dead corpses and the perpetrator, an 18-year-old murderess named Alisa Massaro, having sex with her boyfriend(s) atop the dead bodies.

“Why would you let a 9-year-old who you hardly know, put their feet on your face?” This very logical question was put to Julian Christopher Flores, a 19-year- old former roller rink employee at Northridge Skateland in the San Fernando Valley, by a boy who Mr. Flores had lured into the maintenance room for the express purpose of achieving tumescence of his erectile tissue through engaging in his foot fetish, which consisted of Flores having the boys remove their socks prior to rubbing their feet on his face and hands.
