Bonnie Parker was born October 1, 1910, in Rowena, Texas. An honor roll student in high school where she excelled in creative writing, she won a County League contest in literary arts, for Cement City School, and even gave introductory speeches for local politicians. Described as intelligent and personable yet strong willed, she was an attractive young woman, small at 4 ft 11 in (150 cm) and weighing only 90 pounds (41 kg). Clyde Barrow was born on March 24, 1909 in Ellis County, Texas. Clyde was first arrested in late 1926, after running when police confronted him over a rental car he had failed to return on time. Despite holding down “square” jobs during the period 1927 through 1929, however, he also cracked safes, burgled stores, and stole cars. Bonnie and Clyde were notorious outlaws, robbers and criminals who travelled the Central United States during the Great Depression. Their exploits were known nationwide. They captured the attention of the American press and its readership during what is sometimes referred to as the “public enemy era” between 1931 and 1935. Although this couple and their gang were notorious for their bank robberies, Clyde Barrow preferred to rob small stores or gas stations. Though the public at the time believed Bonnie to be a full partner in the gang, the role of Bonnie Parker in the Barrow Gang crimes has long been a source of controversy. Bonnie and Clyde were killed May 23, 1934, on a desolate road near their Bienville Parish, Louisiana hideout. They were shot by a posse of four Texas and two Louisiana officers. Questions about the way the ambush was conducted, and the failure to warn the duo of impending death, have been raised ever since that day
Armin Meiwes “The Cannibal of Rotenburg” recorded three videotapes, of almost four hours. The footage consisted of how he cut off Brandes’s penis, when they ate, and how he finally chopped and began to devour the dying.
Where would Richard Ramirez be found on the Scale of Evil?
I would say
16 - Vicious Psychopaths: Those who commit multiple vicious acts that may also include murder, rape or mutilation.
18 - Torturing Murderers: Though psychotic, they do not typically prolong their torture. Murder, not torture, is their primary motivation.

Hi! I'm doing a research report on the causes, effects, and treatments of serial killers and I was wondering if you have any ideas on the treatments? I've scoured pages here and there and I've only been able to come up with psychotherapy and medication that's not specifically for serial killers. Thanks for your time, and have a wonderful day!
Hello! Well, I’ve never heard of such thing. The thing is, serial killers are psychopaths - they feel no empathy. No medication/treatment can fill someone with it. And it’s valid to any psychopath, even those who don’t kill. Doctors have been trying come up with a “solution”. No idea if they’ve had any success though. I found a pdf about it, and I think it’s worth reading.
You’re very welcome! Anytime you need just reach out to me. xxx
Gary Michael Heidnik was born in November of 1943. Odd behavior was clearly ingrained in this man, who glued money to the walls of his home. He wanted a large family, and devised a plan to kidnap, rape, and impregnate ten women so that he could achieve his dream. As he kidnapped each of five women, he chained them securely in the basement, intermittently torturing each one in between rapes. He fed the women scraps, dog food, and even the remains of one of the women who he had killed. Heidnik was executed in July of 1999 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
I have a report on the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski coming up in history class. Do you have any interesting information on him?
FBI and TRUtv’s pages about him, a 44 minutes HD documentary, and there’s also a film, but not sure if it’s any good. Hope it ‘s helpful!
Arthur Shawcross recieved a second chance at life after being released back into the community for the murder of two small children. Moving from place to place he ended up in Rochester, New York. He married Rose Walley while in Rochester. He also met Clara Neal, who became his mistress. Working nights as a food wholesaler, and living near the center of town, he didn’t even have a car. During the day he would be seen riding a brown Schwinn bicycle, a womans model, riding to fishing spots along the Genesee River. Not many people wanted Arthur for a neighbor. In 1972 while in Watertown, New York, an upstate town Shawcross had murdered little ten year old Jack Blake, and eight year old Karen Hill He served 15 years of a 25 year sentence for these crimes. He was released on parole in April of 1987 for those murders.
After moving from town to town, chased out by enraged citizens, he found his home in Rochester. People there found him to be friendly, and mild mannered. They didn’t know of his dark past. In March of 1988 the body of a 27 year old prostitute was found floating in Salmon Creek. In September another body was found. Over a year later in October of 1989, a third was found, and in early November, a fourth. Later that month a fifth. Police believed the murders were too similar to be the work of different people…a serial killer was loose in the community. Arthur followed the news of the murders closely. He warned his wife and Clara to be careful. He also hung out at the local Dunkin’ Donuts to talk with the cops about the case. In late November another body was found by a guy walking his dog. Four days later another body was found. By the end of the year three more bodys were added to the death list.
About this time, the Rochester police invited FBI serial killer specialists in to help. They made a profile of the killer: White male, thirties, mobile, trusted by the women who fearlessly got into his car. On January 3, 1990 state troopers in a helicopter spotted a body in the icy Salmon Creek waters. On a bridge overlooking the creek a man leaned out of his car urinating into a pop bottle. The choper alerted some patrol cars and they surrounded the area. Shawcross had just finished a salad when he saw the copter. He climbed back into Clara Neal’s Chevy and left toward the mursing home where she worked. As soon as he pulled in, a police car pulled in behind him and he was taken in for questioning. Shawcross didn’t fit the profile to well, but when the checked his history their interests changed.
They impounded the Chevy, and let Arthur go for lack of evidence. While inspecting the Chevy they found a pink earring that matched on of the earrings found on one of the victims. Shawcross was picked up the next morning. For hours he denied involvement in the crimes. Eventually he confessed to the murders in detail. He had strangled one of his victims for calling him “no better than a faggot”…and saying that he was the Genesee River Killer. He smashed one’s face into the car door for saying he was “hopeless”, and killed one for claiming to be a virgin. By the time his October trial came he had refused to testify. His defence tried to get a insanity claim. Under hypnosis he spoke as an eleven year old arttie, and even as a reincarnated medieval English cannibal. A few of the prostitutes he killed had had their vaginas cut out, which Arthur had ate a few of. He was sentenced to 10 consecutive terms of 25 years at the Sullivan Correctional Facility. He was convicted of 10 murders, but later admitted to an eleventh. He is still being held at Sullivan with no possibility of parole.
