COMBINES HORRIFIC ACCOUNTS OF THE MOST VICIOUS MURDERS EVER COMMITTED WITH THE SHOCKING WORDS OF THE KILLERS THEMSELVES "The bloodstains . . . that happened when I stored one of the guys upsidedown . . . it usually ran out of his nose or mouth or something . . ."
--John Wayne Gacy "She kinda wanted it, ya know. Sex, an' stuff like that. Then I get started, an' she starts cryin' and wants her mom, so I suffocated her."
--Arthur John Shawcross, The Genesee River Killer "Killing a woman's like killing a chicken. They both squawk."
--Kenneth Allen McDuff, Broomstick Murderer "I ain't so bad. I've been with hundreds of men. I just ain't killed them all. Then you get a few dirty old men who go radical on me. What am I supposed to do? It was all their fault, and that's the God's honest truth."
--Aileen Carol Wuornos, "Monster" "I took her into the bedroom and killed her. She screamed for her mom and the last thing she saw was the face of her dead friend lying under the sheets next to her."
--Kenneth Bianchi, The Hillside Strangler
