    William MacDonald - “The Sydney Mutilator"

    On May 12, 2015, 90 year old William MacDonald died in the secure wing of Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, Australia. 


    At the time of his death he was the longest serving prisoner in a New South Wales Prison, however beyond aficionados of true crime, very few know his name or of the heinous crimes he committed that gave him the name “The Sydney Mutilator”. 


    Yet the strange way in which he was caught, should give him a greater place in infamy. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    Thor Nis Christiansen

    Thor Nis Christiansen

    Thor Nis Christiansen was an American serial killer who murdered at least four people between 1976 and 1979 in California. 


    His method was to shoot his victims dead so he could then have sex with their dead bodies. At the time, the case created huge outrage and on his sentence to life imprisonment he feared for his life. 


    The threats were in fact real and after only a few months in Folsom State Prison he was stabbed to death in the exercise yard in March 1981. No-one has been charged with his death. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
