Edmund Kemper Edmund Kemper known as the “Co-ed Killer” was the middle child of Edmund and Clarnell Kemper. Kemper and his alcoholic mother had a difficult relationship growing up.

Edmund Emil Kemper III: Serial Killer Edmund Emil Kemper III was raised by a verbally abusive mother and her succession of abusive husbands. He was 6'9'' and therefore there was really no where that he could hide once the police caught on to his murderous activities. At a young age Edmund tortured and killed animals and had fantasies that combined sex and violence (crime library, 2000). Edmund's younger sister said that "he would stage his own execution in the form of a childhood 'game' in which he had her lead him to a chair, blindfold him, and pull and imaginary lever, after which he would writhe about as if dying in a gas chamber" (Leyton: 1995, 43). By the time that Edmund was finally apprehended by the police he had killed ten people by strangulation , stabbing an shooting.
Outrageous of his acts, his mother sends him away to live with his paternal grandparents in North Fork, California (1). Edmund killed his grandmother at age 15, because he “wanted to know how it would feel like”, then killed his grandfather because he knew that his grandfather would be “angry at him” for killing grandmother. He started hitchhiking college women and kidnapped them, but let them go after wards (3). However, he started to stop letting his victims go and started to kill the kidnapped women. He killed six female college students, including two from UC Santa Cruz where his mother worked at, by picking them up from hitchhiking.
His first two victims were two Fresno State students, Mary Ann Pesce and Anita Luchessa, both of them murdered. After killing them, he chopped off the heads and hands. Then performed sexual acts with the bodies and heads at his apartment when his friend was gone before discarding the bodies. Later that year, he did the same thing to 15 year-old Aiko Koo. The following year he picked up and murdered Cindy Schall.
I chose to pick a fictional character that played in a couple of films and now has a TV series. This particular boy suffered severe emotional abuse as a child at the hands of his mother who preached to him that sexual intercourse is sinful and that all women except her are whores. The boy’s father died which left the boy and his mother living alone together until adolescence, when his mother took on a boyfriend. This boy became incredibly jealous and murdered both him and his mother with strychnine. After committing these murders this boy forged a suicide note to make it look as though his mother had killed her lover and then herself.
When Edmund parents’ divorce in 1957, Edmund moved in with his mother and two sisters in Montana. Edmund mother was an alcoholic, which made their relationship difficult. When Edmund was just ten years’ old, his mother made him move into the basement because she feared that he might do harm to his sisters. That’s when things started to emerge and Edmund started having dark fantasy, he would dream about killing his mother. When Edmund was thirteen years old he killed his cat with a knife.
John Christie's murder method was to lure women to his house, get them drunk then gas them. Once they were unconscious he strangled them and finished by raping their corpses. In 1949, Timothy Evans returned home to find his wife and 14 month old daughter strangled to death. With shock and panic he fled to London. A few days later he went to the police in Wales and told them of the murders- he blamed his neighbor John Christie however he was charged and tried for both murders and hanged in 1950.
By doing this the community will think the husband is a bad man and that’s not how he wants to be portrayed. This gives him a bad name and his reputation trumps his family any day (Chesler).

The last murder was Gloria Jean Davy. He raped her on the bed, as Amurao hid beneath a bed across the room, covering her mouth to keep herself from breathing too loudly. Speck grabbed Davy from the bed and continued his assault on a couch downstairs, where he stabbed her (Fornek). Now alone in the large bedroom, Amurao agitatedly crept across the floor to hide under another bed, one with a blanket draped over the side. About 45 minutes after he h... ... middle of paper ... ... Richard Speck's sister: “She said they were afraid people would desecrate the grave if they had him buried out there.” Krieger also stated that the sister told her kids, “‘You can never tell people Richard Speck was your uncle.’” He was cremated, and his ashes were scattered in a location known only to Krieger, his chief deputy, a pastoral worker and Joliet Herald News columnist John Whiteside, who has since died.
