    #105: The Ripper of China (Serial Killer Gao Chengyong)

    #105: The Ripper of China (Serial Killer Gao Chengyong)

    They sat around the dinner table - whispering. As if the man the town called “The Ripper” could hear them. 



    “Don’t wear red shoes - he will kill all girls wearing red shoes.”



    “I thought it was red clothes?”



    “I heard it was girls with long hair - because it’s easier to grab when they try to run away.”



    Whatever it is - we have to try it all. Cut your hair. Throw out your red clothes because if The Ripper gets a hold of you… 



    He will leave you without your hands, ears, breasts, and sometimes even the skin on your back.

    #104: The Strangler Tree Deaths (Case of Bhatia Family Deaths)

    #104: The Strangler Tree Deaths (Case of Bhatia Family Deaths)

    The banyan tree is a terrifyingly beautiful sight. 





    It looks like it's draped in a shredded cloak… with its long roots suspended from the branches - hanging eerily straight towards the ground. 





    That’s the first thing the officer thought of when he walked into the family home. 11 people dead. 10 hanging. 





    Together, perfectly spaced out, 10 family members were suspended from the ceiling like the roots of a banyan tree. Suspended. 3 generations of a family had been wiped out. But why?

    #103: The Nurse Killer From Hell (Case of Richard Speck)

    #103: The Nurse Killer From Hell (Case of Richard Speck)

    The 7 nursing students were huddled in their dorm room bunk beds - panicking about what to do next. They had been tied up by an intruder.





    They waited till he came back into the room and he pointed at a nurse “you.” He escorted her out and tortured her for 30 minutes. She would never return. 





    One by one - like a ritual the killer escorted out nurses to their death. 





    The hostage room went from 7 to 6 then 5…4…3…2…





    Then there was one. 





    How will she escape?

    #102: The Werewolf of Russia (Serial Killer Mikhail Popkov)

    The 17 year old girl woke up in a panic. Where was she? It was so bright and cold - a hospital? 





    She turned her head to the left - a pale dead body. She tried to scream but her voice wouldn’t work. She looked to her right - a dead body. She wanted to jump up and run out of there but half of her body was now paralyzed. 





    She had woken up in a morgue with half her hair torn out, she couldn’t move, and she didn’t even remember her name. 





    All she knew was earlier she was in a forest staring at the werewolf.

    #101: The Chicken Coop Serial Killers (Case of Gordon Northcott)

    “Ooooh Sanford get out here! I have a present for you - it’s in the bucket!” Sanford didn’t understand why his uncle was so giddy to be back to the chicken farm but he rushed outside.





    He peered into the bucket for his surprise. Immediately he wanted to gag. Why did his uncle bring home roadkill? Why did it look like the animal had a wig on?





    “Look closer Sanford.” - Uncle Stew ordered. 





    And that’s when Sanford realized - this isn’t roadkill. It’s not an animal. It’s the severed head of a young boy not much older than him…

    #100: Body In The High School Gym (Case of Kendrick Johnson)

    #100: Body In The High School Gym (Case of Kendrick Johnson)

    All morning there had been whispers at LHS - they found a student’s body in the old gym. The body of 17 year old KJ had been found rolled up into a giant gym mat about 6ft tall. 





    When the police arrive they rule out foul play - they believe KJ willingly went into the mat where he would later suffocate to death. 





    But what about all the other strange evidence? The blood on the gym walls, the FBI agent’s high school son who had problems with KJ, and why were KJ’s organs missing?
