Serial Killer Art: Johnn Wayne Gacy
The infamous “Clown Killer”, John Wayne Gacy murdered 33 teenage boys and stored their bodies in the crawl space under his home. In his spare time, Gacy worked charity events and children’s parties dressed as “Pogo the Clown”. He also drew renditions of the character, such as the one above.
Miles Giffard, twenty-seven, angry at his father for trying to break up his romance, killed him and his mother. Giffard beat his parents over their heads with an iron bar and dumped them off the cliff on which their house was perched in Cornwall, England, into the sea below. As a boy, Giffard had been unwilling to learn and was expelled from school. He indulged in petty theft, and, finally, lived off his parents. Moving to London in August 1952, Giffard met Gabriel Vallance, nineteen, and fell in love. The following November, needing a fresh supply of clothing, he returned to his parents’ home. His father denounced his lifestyle and forbade him to return to London, cutting off his allowance. On the maid’s evening out, Giffard killed his parents, and then drove his father’s car back to London. Arriving the next morning, November 8, he promptly sold some of his mother’s jewelry, and then cleaned up at Vallance’s apartment. That evening he took his girlfriend and her mother to the movies, telling valance what he had done when they were alone. She thought he was joking. As he dropped her off late that evening, the police were waiting, as his parents’ bodies had been found. Giffard was arrested for car theft, and the next day he confessed the murders. Giffard was found Guilty and hanged on February 24, 1953.
Serial killer Donald Harvey being interviewed in 2004 about the murders he committed while working in a hospital. In an earlier 1997 interview he stated that he murdered his first victim after he entered a stroke patient’s room and the patient smeared faeces in his face:
"The next thing I knew, I’d smothered him, it was like it was the last straw. I just lost it. I went in to help the man and he wants to rub that in my face."
Charles Brewster Ross was the primary victim of the first kidnapping for ransom in America to receive widespread attention from the media. On July 1, 1874, Charley (then four years old) and his older brother Walter Lewis (aged five) were playing in the front yard of their family’s home in Germantown, Pennsylvania. A horse-drawn carriage pulled up and they were approached by two men who offered the boys candy and fireworks if they would take a ride with them. Charley Ross was never seen again.
Peter Lundin, pictured above, is a Danish multiple murderer who was convicted of four murders in total. His initial crime occurred in 1991 when he strangled his mother to death and, with the help of his father, buried her body on a beach where it would be found 8 months later. He was imprisoned for 15 years for this murder.
When he was finally released, however, he would murder again. This time the victim was Marianne Pedersen, who worked at a brothel, and her two sons. Blood traces with their DNA would be discovered in Lundin’s car, and investigators would eventually conclude that they’d been killed and dismembered - although their bodies would never be found.
This time Lundin was given a sentence of life imprisonment for his crimes.
