The mask of notorious Serial Killer B.T.K.  Dennis Rader.
This was his own personal mask he used to enjoy wearing when he would bind himself up. Eventually, he left it at one of his crime scenes. He would later say that he regretted doing so, and missed his mask. His known body count is 10. He is doing his time at the El Dorado Correctional Facility in Kansas.

Pictured above is the mugshot of Elizabeth Short, better known as The Black Dahlia, arrested in 1943 for underage drinking in Santa Barbara. Born in Medford, MA, in 1924, Short spent her time after high school criss-crossing the country, eventually settling in Hollywood with predictably unrequited starlet-type aspirations. This aimless young lady came to national attention on 15 January 1947, after a stroller-pushing mother discovered her torn body in a vacant lot, torso cut in two and drained of its blood, a chunk of flesh taken from her leg and stuffed up her genitals, her hair freshly shampooed and still wet.

Gwendolyn Graham and Catherine May Wood are a rare case in which two women teamed up in a series of sexual murders. Wood was a recently divorced 450-pound supervisor in a nursing home when she entered into a lesbian relationship with Graham, a nurses aide. The dominant Graham told Wood that it would be a sexual thrill to murder six elderly patients in the home so that their last names would spell out the word murder. Their spelling game failed when some of the patients did not die as easily as the couple hoped. Nevertheless, using a wet washcloth to suffocate the patients, Graham killed five victims while Wood stood guard. After each murder, the couple immediately retired to a vacant room in the nursing home and had sex. In exchange for her testimony, Wood received a twenty-to-forty sentence, while Graham was given six life sentences.

Brazilian mass murderer Wellington Menezes, who committed one of the largest non-gang related murders reported in the country. On the 7th of April 2011 Menezes entered Escola Municipal Tasso da Silveira, an elementary school, and shot dead 12 children - who were all between the ages of 10 and 13. One of the surviving children reported that Menezes appeared to be aiming to kill girls, while when shooting boys he shot to immobilise them. 10 out of the 12 dead were girls.
Police insisted that, having received a suicide letter from Menezes before the attack, there appeared to be no political or religious motive - despite reports that Menezes was fascinated by jihadi muslim extremists and had been researching Islam. He had attended the elementary school he targeted during his youth, where he was viciously bullied. In a recording made before the attack he said:

“The struggle for which many brothers died in the past, and for which I will die, is not solely because of what is known as bullying. Our fight is against cruel people, cowards, who take advantage of the kindness, the weakness of people unable to defend themselves.”

“Our primary interest is what you’ve got between your legs. You’ll be raped thoroughly and repeatedly in every hole you’ve got, because basically, you’ve been snatched and brought here for us to train and use as a sex slave.”

Vernon Geberth, America’s top homicide cop - he has been involved in over eight thousand wrongful death investigations - believes that David Parker Ray was the most vicious serial killer he has ever encountered. “Clinically, I would describe him as the ultimate psychopathic sadist. Investigatively, I would define him as a human predator. Spiritually, I would describe him as the Devil-on-Earth.” Ray, his wife, Hendy, their daughter, Glenda Jesse, and a friend named Roy Yacy, participated in the abduction of women, usually prostitutes or runaways, from the streets of New Mexico towns. They would then take them to Ray’s compound and inside the windowless trailer called the “Toy Box,” where Ray and the others would strip them nude, tie them in obscene positions in a gynaecologist’s chair, and then torture them by administering electric current, inserting an assortment of large and odd-shaped dildos into their bodies, slicing them with razors and knives, and sexually assaulting them with homemade torture devices. The pain the women endured and their cries and screams provided David Parker Ray sexual stimulation. When the women were all used up, as it were, Ray would kill them, often by strangulation, and dump their bodies (he likely killed thirty or more) in a twenty-five-mile lake he had access to. To make sure they bodies wouldn’t surface, he would first gut them and pack stones inside. Ray also suffered from logorrhoea, meaning he wrote about his experiences extensively. At one point, Ray began reading his captives the riot act on what was going to happen to them. The speech was part of the torture he administered and was used to break them down emotionally so that they would obey his every wish and command. Following is excerpts from the tape which the FBI found and transcribed:

“Hello there, bitch. You’re chained, handcuffed, scared, and disoriented. Listen to this tape. It was created July 23, 1993, as an advisory for female captives based on my several years of experience. You are here against your will. You probably think you are going to be raped. You’re right about that - you will be raped thoroughly and repeatedly… My female companion and I are very selective. We’ll snatch up anything clean, young, and well built. We’re basically like predators. We’re always looking. I don’t want to kill unless it’s absolutely necessary. If I killed every victim I ever kidnapped, there’d be bodies all over the country”

Samar Hassan

Chris Hondros was an American Pulitzer Prize-nominated war photographer. In 2005, he traveled to Iraq in order to cover the war. On January 18, 2005, Hondros was in Tal Afar when he witnessed a car that failed to stop at a U.S. checkpoint. U.S. Soldiers feared a suicide bomber and opened fire on the car killing both parents and injuring one of their five children. Hondros approached the scene and captured a picture of 5-year-old Samar Hassan splattered in her parent’s blood. After the photo was published, it quickly caused controversy and was spread across the world. Many feel the picture is the most iconic image of the Iraq War, similar to the naked Vietnamese girl screaming and running after a napalm attack. The Iraq War delivered few singular images, partly because it was too dangerous for photographers. The U.S. military also set strict rules for journalists.
In 2011, Samar Hassan looked at the picture for first time and was interviewed by the New York Times Middle East. About the incident she said that her family was in the car because her brother was sick and that they were returning from the hospital. In 2011, Samar was living on the outskirts of Mosul in a two-story house with four other families, mostly relatives. Chris Hondros was quoted about the once in a lifetime photograph: “Almost every soldier in Iraq has been involved in some sort of incident like that or another, I would say. Their attitude about it was grim, but it wasn’t the end of their world.” It was reported on April 20, 2011, that Chris Hondros and photojournalist Tim Hetherington were killed by a mortar attack in Misrata while covering the 2011 Libyan civil war.

The “Washington Snipers” (aka, “Beltway Snipers” or “D.C. Snipers”) killed ten people within a three-week period in the Washington, D.C., area in 2002. Originally thought to be a lone gunman, the killers turned out to be Gulf War veteran John Allen Muhammad and 18-year-old Lee Boyd Malvo, who were both convicted of capital murder. The media quickly labeled them “spree killers.” Forensically speaking, however, they are probably more accurately described as a serial killers.
