Serial Killers: DeVernon LeGrand

Born: 1924

Number of victims: 12+      

Date of murders: 1963 - 1976

Method of murder: Shooting / Beating   

Location: New York / New Jersey 

A self-styled holy man, DeVernon LeGrand established St. John's Pentecostal Church of Our Lord in Brooklyn, New York during the 60’s. He used this “church” to recruit young women as “nuns” sending them out onto the streets to beg on his behalf. These and other illegal activities, including prostitution, earned the “reverend” as substantial income. He was fond of cruising New York in a chauffeur driven Cadillac.

Life for his flock, however, was not so cushy. LeGrand kept them in line by impregnating most of the women, and using threats of violence against them and their children. When threats failed, he resorted to torture and murder. 

In October 1966, church members Gladys Stewart, 16, and her sister Yvonne, 18, testified against LeGrand at a bribery trial, then promptly disappeared. Police would find their dismembered corpses at a property LeGrand owned in the Catskills in 1975. Before that discovery there would be at least 12 more murders, many of the victims beaten and tortured to death inside LeGrand’s Brooklyn church. The list of victims included three of LeGrand’s wives, two of his step-children, and two male employees of his church.

In May 1976, LeGrand was indicted on four counts of murder, including the Stewart sisters and two of his wives, killed in 1963 and 1970, respectively. LeGrand’s 26-year-old son, Steven, was also charged, along with two men employed by Le Grand as pimps.

DeVernon LeGrand was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison in 1977. He died in prison in 2006.

Serial Killers: David Parker Ray

Born: November 6, 1939

Number of victims:  14 - 60   

Date of murders: 1950s - 1999

Method of murder: Stabbing / Strangulation / Asphyxiation   

Location: New Mexico

A truly depraved individual, David Parker Ray spent over $100,000 to build a torture chamber inside his trailer in the New Mexico desert. Then he began trawling for victims, picking up prostitutes from as far afield as Albuquerque and bringing them back to his “Toy Box.” As many as 60 are believed to have been abducted and most were never heard from again.

Ray was a meticulous planner, and he might have gotten away with his crimes indefinitely, had one of his victims not escaped. On March 22, 1999, Cynthia Vigil was being held prisoner in the “Toy Box” after being kidnapped by Ray and his accomplice, Cindy Hendy, three days earlier. She had suffered hours of horrendous sexual torture and was weak from her injuries. Still, she realized that if she did not escape she was likely to be killed. After Ray left for work, she spotted a set of handcuff keys that Hendy had carelessly left on a table, and seized her chance.

After escaping the Toy Box, Vigil ran naked to a neighboring trailer, about half a mile away. The owner then phoned the police and when Ray returned police officers were there to arrest him.     

Despite overwhelming evidence against him (including video tapes of women being tortured) Ray continued to protest his innocence. However, after two accomplices agreed to testify against him, he struck a deal, pleading guilty to charges of kidnapping and assault and accepting a sentence of 224 years in prison.

Ray, however, would serve none of that time. On May 28, 2002, while being transported to the Lea County Correctional Facility in Hobbs, New Mexico, he suffered a heart attack and died. The actual extent of his murder spree is unknown, as none of the bodies has ever been found.

Serial Killers: Marc Dutroux

Born: November 6, 1956

Number of victims: 5+    

Date of murders: 1995 - 1996

Method of murder: Starvation  

Location: Hainaut, Belgium

A depraved sex killer, pedophile and pornographer, Marc Dutroux had already built up a sizable rap sheet before his first arrest for rape in 1986. That charge, for abducting and raping five young girls, earned him a ludicrous four years in prison. He’d barely been released when he was up to his old tricks, now assisted by his lover, Michele Martin.

On June 24, 1995, eight-year-olds Julie Lejeune and Melissa Russo disappeared while playing near their homes in Grace-Hollogne. One month later, on August 23, An Marchal, 17, and Eefje Lambrecks, 19, vanished while hitchhiking near the seaside town of Ostend. On May 28, 1996 12-year-old Sabine Dardenne disappeared while riding her bike to school in Kain, southwest Belgium. Just over two months later, on August 9, 1996, Laetitia Delhez, 14, vanished while walking home from a public swimming pool in her hometown of Bertrix.

With six young girls now missing from the area, police launched a massive operation but found no trace and no clues until informants brought up the name of Marc Dutroux.

Dutroux was brought in for questioning along with associates Michelle Martin and Michel Lelievre. It was Lelievre and Martin who cracked under questioning and confessed to their parts in abducting the girls. Faced with these confessions, Dutroux realized the game was up and admitted his involvement.

On August 15, 1996, Dutroux led officers to a basement cell in his home where Sabine Dardenne and Laetitia Delhez were found alive, although filthy and malnourished. The girls had been kept as sex slaves but they were the lucky ones, the other four victims had been killed.

Marc Dutroux went on trial for murder on March 1, 2004. Convicted on all counts, he was sentenced to life imprisonment, while Martin got 30 years and Lelievre 25 years.

Serial Killers: Orville Lynn Majors

Born: 1941

Number of victims: 6+    

Date of murders: 1994 - 1995

Method of murder: Poisoning   

Location: Clinton, Indiana 

Born April 24, 1961 in Clinton, Indiana, Orville Lynn Majors developed an interest in nursing after caring for his ailing grandmother. He later qualified as an LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) and found work at Vermillion County Hospital in his hometown.

But it was soon clear that Majors was badly suited to his chosen profession. He seemed to genuinely hate the elderly patients under his care, calling them “wasters,” and telling his colleagues that they all deserved to die. Few would have guessed that he meant this literally. 

Soon after Majors started working at Vermillion there was a dramatic increase in death rates at the hospital. In 1992, twenty-six patients had died at the hospital. Two years later, that number had soared to 101, most of the deaths occurring in the 4-bed ICU, where Majors worked.

Something had to be done, and the hospital therefore brought in an expert to investigate. The consultant soon picked up a pattern. The majority of deaths at the hospital had a common denominator, ICU nurse Orville Lynn Majors. According to the consultant’s calculations patients were 43 times more likely to die on Majors’ shift than on any other. 

The matter, of course, had to be reported to the police and the subsequent investigation firmed up the consultant’s suspicions. First, a quantity of potassium chloride was found at Majors’ home. This drug can cause a sudden rise in blood pressure, leading to heart failure. When autopsies proved that several patients had died in exactly this way, Majors was arrested. As soon as he was out of the picture, the death rate at the hospital normalized.

Orville Lynn Majors went on trial for only seven murders, even though he was suspected of 130. Found guilty on six charges, he was sentenced to 360 years in prison.

Serial Killer Video: Wayne Williams and the Atlanta Child Murders

Between the summer of 1979 and the Spring of 1981, a series of at least 28 murders of children and young adults occurred in Atlanta, Georgia. A man named Wayne Williams was eventually arrested and convicted for two of the adult murders but most experts agree that he was not responsible for all of the killings. So who was? This is the story of the Atlanta Child Murders.

Serial Killers: The Axeman of New Orleans

Number of victims: 7    

Date of murders: 1918 - 1919 

Method of murder: Axe   

Location: New Orleans, Louisiana

The still unidentified Axeman committed a series of atrocities in New Orleans between May 1918 and October 1919, hacking his victims to death with an axe or with a straight razor. His usual method was to attack his victims in their beds after gaining entry by smashing in a back door. Most of the victims were Italian-American and many were grocers.

The mysterious killer first struck on May 22, 1918, when he attacked Joseph and Catherine Maggio while they slept, slashing their throats and then clubbing them with an axe. He next appeared on June 27, 1918, killing Louis Besumer and his mistress Harriet Lowe in their bed. The next victim, a 28-year-old pregnant woman, survived before the Axeman struck again, hacking Joseph Romano to death on August 10. As with the other murders, a bloody axe was found at the scene.

On the night of March 10, 1919, the killer attacked Charles and Rosie Cortimiglia at their home in Gretna, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans. Both survived despite horrendous injuries. Their infant daughter, however, did not. Thereafter, there were two more non-fatal attacks before the Axeman killed his final victim on October 27, 1919. Mike Pepitone was attacked and killed while he slept beside his wife.

After that, the killer mysteriously disappeared, although a letter, purporting to be from him, was received by a local newspaper on March 13, 1919. In it, he said that he would kill again on March 19, but would spare the occupants of any house where jazz music was being played. That night is said to have been one of the noisiest in New Orleans history.

Serial Killers: Heriberto Seda

Born: July 31, 1967

Number of victims: 3   

Date of murders: 1990 - 1993

Method of murder: Shooting  

Location: New York City

A copycat of San Francisco’s notorious "Zodiac," Heriberto Seda, terrorized New York City with a killing spree that spanned 1990 to 1993 and left three dead and many others injured. 

Seda, however, took the Zodiac monicker more literally than his infamous namesake. His plan was to kill twelve people, one for each astrological sign. When the NYPD received a letter from Seda threatening to do just that, they disregarded it as a hoax. On March 8, 1990, they were proved wrong.

Mario Orosco, a Scorpio, was shot in the back but survived. 21 days later, German Montenedro, a Gemini, also survived his encounter with Seda. The next victim, however, was not so lucky. Joseph Proce, a Taurus, was attacked and shot on May 31, 1990. A note found near his body read: "Zodiac -- Time to die!.” Proce died in the hospital three weeks later. 

A fourth victim, Larry Parham, was shot and injured in Central Park on June 21 but thereafter the Zodiac disappeared until August 1992, when he again started corresponding with the police. Soon after, the attacks started up again. Patricia Fonte, a Leo, was killed in a vicious knife attack on August 10, suffering over 100 wounds.

About a year later, on June 4, 1993, Seda shot James Weber, a Libra, in the leg. Six weeks after that, he killed his third victim, a homeless man named John DiAcone, star sign Virgo. On October 2, he shot Diane Ballard, another Taurus, and left her partially paralyzed.

By now the story of the Zodiac Killer had leaked to the press and the city was in panic, fearing another “Son of Sam” type killing spree. But then police got a break in the case. Seda was involved in a domestic altercation with his sister and her boyfriend on June 18, 1996. The police were called and a stand-off ensued, during which Seda fired several times at officers. After he eventually surrendered, the police searched his home and found evidence that linked him to the Zodiac attacks.

Convicted of three murders, Heriberto Seda was sentenced to life in prison.

Serial Killers: Braeden Nugent

Born: 1975 

Number of victims: 2+      

Date of murders: 1995

Method of murder: Beating    

Location: Thunder Bay, Ontario

A particularly savage murderer, Braeden Nugent terrorized the citizens of Thunder Bay, Ontario over a two month period in 1995, during which he beat two men to death with his bare hands.

The first to die was Jean Joseph Boutin who met Nugent and another youth at a Pickle Lake tavern on March 31, 1995. The men left the bar together, but while crossing Hillcrest Park, Nugent suddenly attacked 44-year-old Boutin, leaving him bleeding on the ground before making off with his watch and wallet. Not satisfied, he later returned and started beating Boutin again, this time tying him up and kicking him repeatedly before fleeing the scene. Boutin was found the next day, having asphyxiated on his own blood.

Just six weeks later, on May 16, 1995, Nugent attacked a mentally impaired 41-year-old named Victor Wilson in the driveway of his home. Wilson was choked and beaten, the attack so severe that his face was left “unrecognizable as human.”

By now a massive investigation was underway, involving the provincial police. It led eventually to the arrest of Braeden Nugent in December 1995. Convicted of the two murders plus a number of other attacks and incidents of arson, Nugent was sentenced to life in prison. 

On March 27, 2005, Braeden Nugent was found dead in his cell. It was later determined that he’d died of an overdose of methadone, a drug used to ease addicts off heroin. The drug however had never been prescribed to Nugent and it is uncertain whether he committed suicide or was poisoned by his fellow inmates.

Serial Killers: Glen Rogers

Born: July 15, 1962 

Number of victims:  5+    

Date of murders: 1993 -1995

Method of murder: Strangulation / Stabbing   

Location: California / Mississippi / Kentucky / Florida / Louisiana 

Known as the Cross-Country Killer, Glen Rogers was a charming ladies man who killed at least five women during a multi-state rampage in the mid-90s. His first victim was a former housemate whose body was found hidden under a pile of furniture in an abandoned house owned by the Rogers family. Two years later, in September 1995, Rogers showed up in Van Nuys, California where he murdered a woman he picked up in a bar. Her body was later found inside her burning pickup truck. An autopsy would prove that she’d been raped and strangled. Rogers' third victim was picked up from another bar, this time in Jackson, Mississippi on November 3.

With Rogers now identified as a suspect and a major manhunt underway to find him, he fled to Tampa, Florida where he fatally stabbed Tina Marie Cribbs and left her to die in a motel room bathtub. Finally, he showed up in Bossier City, Louisiana on November 11, where yet another young woman was stabbed to death. Shortly afterwards, Rogers was tracked down and taken into custody. Under interrogation, he jokingly admitted to 70 murders, although he later recanted that claim. Police believe he might be responsible for 12 deaths.

Glen Rogers went on trial for the murder of Tina Marie Cribbs in Tampa, Florida on May 7, 1997. Found guilty of murder he was sentenced to death. He subsequently received another death sentence in California.

Serial Killers: Peter Stubbe

Number of victims: 18    

Date of murders: 1568 - 1589 

Method of murder: Stabbing   

Location: Germany

Know as the “Werewolf of Bedburg,” Peter Stubbe was executed in Cologne, Germany in 1589 over a series of horrific murders. The belief was that Stubbe was a werewolf and had sold his soul to the devil. This was given credence by Stubbe’s own confession, although that confession was obtained under the most horrific torture. In it, Stubbe claimed that Satan had given him a magic belt that transformed him into a hungry and savage wolf when he wore it.

The accusations against Stubbe were that, between 1564 and 1589, he murdered 18 people, literally tearing them apart and consuming their flesh. Fourteen of the victims were children, and there were also two pregnant women, whose fetuses he allegedly ripped from their wombs and ate. Also among the dead was Stubbe’s own son whose brain he supposedly devoured.

Found guilty of these crimes, Stubbe was put to death on October 31, 1589, along with his daughter and mistress. The execution was every bit as gruesome as Stubbe’s alleged crimes. First he was tied to a wagon wheel; then flesh was torn from his body with red-hot pincers; then his limbs were broken with the blunt side of an axe before he was eventually beheaded. His head was later placed on a pole as a warning to other “werewolves.”

Serial Killers: Michael Swango

Born: October 21, 1954

Number of victims: 4 - 60     

Date of murders: 1981 - 1997

Method of murder: Poisoning   

Location: Illinois / Ohio / South Dakota / New York / Zimbabwe

Arguably one of the most depraved medical serial killers in history, Michael Swango was a doctor from Tacoma, Washington who poisoned at least 30 of his patients and colleagues. 

Swango began his murderous career while serving an internship at Ohio State University in 1983. Nurses began noticing that apparently healthy patients became seriously ill and died whenever Swango was around. They reported their concerns to administrators but were accused of paranoia. 

In July 1984, Swango was working as an Emergency Medical Services technician in Illinois. Soon, many of his colleagues began noticing that they became violently ill whenever Swango made coffee for them. They took their concerns to police and Swango was arrested after donuts he’d brought in for the staff turned out to contain traces of arsenic.

Swango was convicted of aggravated battery and sent to prison for five years. He was released in 1991, thereafter forging documents so that he could work as a doctor again.  In 1992, he began working as at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota under the alias David J. Adams. However, he was soon exposed as a fraud and asked to leave, although no charges we filed. Next he showed up at the Northport Veterans Administration Medical Center in New York. Sure enough, patients soon started dying there.

Swango was discharged from his latest position in October 1993. A year later he surfaced at the Mnene Hospital in the African country of Zimbabwe. After seemingly healthy patients started dying, Swango was arrested and charged with murder. He fled before the trial. He next obtained a job in Saudi Arabia using a false resume but was arrested at O' Hare Airport in Chicago, during a stop over while on route to the Middle East.

Tried in July, 2000, Swango admitted murdering three of his patients. He was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. He is suspected of as many as 60 murders.

Serial Killers: Richard Cottingham

Born: November 25, 1946

Number of victims:  Strangulation   

Date of murders: 1977 - 1980 

Method of murder: 6   

Location: New York / New Jersey

On December 2, 1979, firefighters responding to a blaze at a seedy Times Square hotel discovered two headless female corpses. NYPD homicide investigators later linked the murders to the killing of teenage prostitute Helen Sikes in January that year. She too had been found hacked apart in Times Square. And on May 5, 1980, police had another murdered prostitute to deal with. Valerie Street’s body had not been cut up, but she had been severely beaten, and her killer had bitten off one of her nipples.

Within a week, the death toll had increased to five when prostitute Jean Reyner turned up dead in a Times Square hotel room. Her breasts had been hacked off. A week after that, the police finally got their break when they were called back to the same hotel. A woman had been reported screaming in one of the rooms and officers found her handcuffed to a bed. She had been beaten, raped and sodomized and had also been slashed with a knife and severely bitten. Her attacker was caught trying to flee the scene. He was identified as 34-year-old Richard Francis Cottingham.

Cottingham made an unlikely murder suspect. He was an apparently respectable family man with a job at a major health insurance firm. Nonetheless, the evidence against him was overwhelming, especially when several surviving victims came forward to identify him as their attacker.

Tried and found guilty of the murder of Valerie Street, Cottingham was sentenced to life in prison.

Serial Killers: John Straffen

Born: February 26, 1930

Number of victims: 4      

Date of murders: 1951 - 1952

Method of murder: Strangulation   

Location: Somerset / Berkshire, England

In the summer of 1951 the town of Bath, in the west of England, lived in terror of an unseen child killer. The fiend first appeared early in July when he kidnapped and murdered 7-year-old Christine Butcher. Just over a week later on July 15, 6-year-old Brenda Goddard was reported missing. She was found three hours later in a copse of trees, bludgeoned to death with a stone.

With the town still reeling from the two child murders, another child went missing on August 8. Nine-year-old Cecily Batstone went to watch a movie and never returned. Her body was found the next morning, in a meadow on the outskirts of town. She’d been strangled to death.

This time, however, there were witnesses who had seen the girl with a local man, John Straffen. Brought in for questioning, the 21-year-old laborer quickly confessed, admitting that he’d also killed the other two girls.

Straffen was subsequently declared insane and sent to be detained indefinitely at Broadmoor secure hospital. However, he was not done yet. On April 29, 1952, he escaped and during the 24 hours he was at liberty, committed another murder, strangling five-year-old Linda Bowyer. 

This time Straffen was declared fit to stand trial. Convicted of murder, he was sentenced to death, although this was later commuted to life imprisonment. He died in prison on November 20, 2007, having served 56 years behind bars.

Serial Killers: Roberto Arguelles

Born: 1962 

Number of victims: 4+

Date of murders: 1992

Method of murder: Strangulation / Stabbing

Location: Salt Lake City, Utah
Between February and March 1992, three young girls and a middle-aged woman were brutally raped and murdered in Salt Lake City, Utah. The first to die was 42-year-old school janitor Margo Bond, abducted from her place of work and murdered in February 1992. Just over a week later, 13-year-old Stephanie Blundell was kidnapped, sexually assaulted and then killed. Then in March, there was were two more deaths; 15-year-old Tuesday Roberts was raped and strangled, her friend, 16-year-old Lisa Martinez was stabbed to death with a wood chisel.

With four victims so savagely killed in such a short period of time, the Salt Lake City PD launched a massive operation to catch the killer. One of those questioned was 30-year-old Roberto Arguelles, who had reported to police that he’d witnessed the bodies of Roberts and Martinez being dumped. The lead however led nowhere and the case eventually went cold.

Four years later Arguelles was serving time for child molestation when he asked for a meeting with investigators. He then tearfully confessed that he had committed the four murders. He’d recently become a father, he said, and couldn’t live with the deaths on his conscience.

Arguelles asked for the death penalty and the judge at his trial was happy to oblige. The sentence however would never be carried out. Roberto Arguelles died in prison on November 23, 2003

Serial Killers: Anthony Kirkland

Born: September 13, 1968

Number of victims: 5   

Date of murders: 1987 - 2009

Method of murder: Strangulation   

Location: Ohio

A killer with an uncontrollable sex drive and a deep-seated hatred towards women, Anthony Kirkland preyed on young females in the Cincinnati area between 2006 and 2009, claiming four victims, three of them teenagers.

Kirkland had already served time for manslaughter by the time he started his killing spree in 2006. On May 20, 1987, he’d beat and choked his girlfriend Leola Douglas to death, thereafter dousing her body with lighter fluid and setting her on fire. Convicted on that charge, he served 16 years in prison before being paroled in 2004. 

In the spring of 2006, the bodies of 15-year-old Casonya Crawford and Mary Jo Newton, 45, were found strangled to death and then partially burned in an apparent attempt to conceal evidence of sexual assault. Kirkland was suspected, but the police had no evidence against him. Seven months later, in December 2006 another partially burned corpse turned up, that of Kimya Rolinson, aged just 14. Again the police could not tie main suspect Anthony Kirkland to the crime.

In May 14, 2007, Kirkland was sent back to prison for 115 days after a standoff with a SWAT team at his home, during which he threatened to kill his 18-month-old son. Shortly after his release 13-year-old Esme Kenney went missing while jogging near her home. Her strangled and burned body was found in nearby woods and Kirkland was found fast asleep nearby, with Esme’s watch and iPod in his possession.

Kirkland would eventually be sentenced to death for Esme Kenny’s murder. He currently awaits execution.
