Well then. A few people have been asking for it, so here it is.
Before I begin, a few people may not like the idea of discussing serial killers or murder cases so if this is not your cup of tea, simply press the back button on your browser and go join the pokemon discussion thread or debate which CM Punk haircut is the best.
I have been following murder cases for a few years now. It always intrigued me. What possesses someone to kill? Are they merely a product of their environment, or is it genetic? A lot of them are quite intricate in the detail and some are quite messy. Some are all about the fame and want to be noticed whilst others are more introverted.
Even those without an active interest can't help but have heard of the likes of Charles Manson, Ed Gein, Ted Bundy, William Gacy and Jeffrey Dahmer.
To get the ball rolling, I thought I would post a quick blurb in my own words about a serial killer I found quite interesting.
Richard Kuklinski Aka "The ice man"
His name was Richard Kuklinski. (also known as the iceman) He was a Mafia hitman. He was a big scary looking man standing at 6'5 and about 300 pounds. He had a variety of unique ways of killing his victims, e.g. strangulation, shooting, even poisoning. Whilst he was committing these atrocious acts he was still maintaining a normal and healthy relationship with his wife and kids. He was convicted for only 5 counts of murder, though he has admitted to a lot more. He maintains that he only killed so he can provide for his wife and daughter. Although he does seem to be a lot different to your stereotypical serial killer in that he maintains that he doesn't get any kind of satisfaction from the killings, sexual or otherwise. He was very meticulous and would get close to his victims in order to perform the murders. For example on one particular occasion he went to a gay club and dress as a homosexual in order to get close enough to a victim to preform the kill. Even though he maintains that he doesn't get satisfaction, he does seem to express joy in some of the killings. He was imprisoned December 17 1986 and stayed imprisoned until he died under suspicious circumstances on march 5 2006. The reason it was thought of to be suspicious was because he was due to testify against a member of the infamous gambino family.
Here is an interesting youtube video of an interview with The Iceman.

What cases do you find interesting? What cases do you find the creepiest? Post your stuff here.
Oh and I guess it goes without saying, don't post crime scene photos/videos as violent images aren't allowed on this site.
