Invader you are right. I just meant one of the most heinous crimes.

Happiness illudes me. Each day is a struggle.

I also like reading about serial killers. I have a lot of books on this subject. Eileen Wuornos. It is uncommon for women to be serial killers. I find her case interesting also.

Happiness illudes me. Each day is a struggle.

My point is that Ed Gein was predominantly a grave robber. There is no way to prove that had he not been caught, he would have killed more people as opposed to continuing to rob graves

Of course, there's no way to "prove" what he- or any one for that matter- would have done in the future, but he was a grave robber first. Needless to say, grave robbing to murder is an obvious escalation in crimes.
Also, I don't think it's believed that after he committed murder that he robbed any more graves.

Are you talking about Andrei Chikatilo, the Rostov Ripper? Also, as previously mentioned, Ed Gein was not technically a serial killer (he only had 2 kills)

He always reminds me of that ABBA song:

#Chikatilo you and I know#

Have you seen that footage of him in the courtroom where he strips off?  Bleugh! :o

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time

I have not, I shall have to look this up on YouTube in the morning. There's a more recent serial killer who was inspired by Chikatilo, he was called the Chessboard Killer, because he claimed to want to murder 64 people, the number of squares on a chessboard

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking. Racing around to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older. Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
