Why do I post what I do?

Someone recently commented on my blog asking why I post photos of the result of a serial killer's misdeeds. Also, "if this were someone you loved, would you want this on someone's site?"

Now this question wasn't to belittle me or attack me but to tell you the truth, I thought this would have been asked a lot more and more frequently.

Answer is this:

I am not in it for the shock factor. I am not in it to get the most followers. I do it to share the darker side of the world. Anyone can google a serial killer and get their stories, but I try to bring you stories of not so famous serial killers. I post the pictures to show how horrible these men/women are/were. To show that it can actually happen. Also, I post pictures of adults. I do have a line that I don't cross, I do not post deceased photos of children.

I do have to ask, what do you say to those people who write about serial killers, post the same photos I may post and do it for monetary gain?

I don't think what I am doing is all that bad. I know people who have pictures of their loved ones in their deceased state and hang them on their wall or on facebook for all to see. Some of us would be okay with having others post and some of us not so much.

We are all entitled to our own opinion and the freedom to follow whatever blog we wish to follow. This is not the only time I have posted crime-scene photos nor will it be the last.

If it was someone I loved, I would have other things to care about and deal with than worrying if my loved one's crime-scene photos are on someone's site. I would know that the time we live in now, it's bound to happen. If it bothered me enough, I could always write to the person posting the photos and ask them to cease and desist. The first amendment comes into play until it is request from the specific families that I stop.

My blog has the "adult" tag on it and you must chose if you want to view what is behind that button. You have the choice to not follow, read or look at what I have posted.

I have lost many followers after I started posting my serial killer posts. It is what it is. We all have our tastes in what we are interested in and what we want to read. I figured my blog would not be the most popular and I put it out there for people who are interested in this subject.

I do thank anyone for their input and their opinions and questions. I also thank those of you who continue following. Those of you who choose not to follow or have stopped following, I thank you as well for taking a chance and looking to see what other blogs there may be even though it can be a tad bit morbid.

I mean I have won blog awards..............

Not The Typical Guy Next Door

~*P.S. 100TH POST!!!*~

Richard was born on November 25th, 1946. He was born in New York, but later moved to New Jersey with his family. Married with three children, an excellent athlete in high-school and a computer operator, Richard Cottingham was considered to be a good neighbor and family man. He didn't seem to be the guy that would be a trouble maker. Of course, it is the quite ones you have to worry about.

Richard would carry around a briefcase with him most of the time. The thing different about this briefcase is that it wasn't there to hold papers or pens it was there to hold gags, fake guns, knives, prescription pills, slave collars and handcuffs.

MaryAnn Carr was Richards first victim. It is believed that her demise was strangulation. Her body was dumped outside of the Quality Inn where she met her fate on 12/16/77.

~*MaryAnn Carr*~

On 12/2/79 firefighters responded to a hotel fire. Upon their entrance to the room they found two bodies. The first body they began to do CPR, only when they went to breathe into her mouth, well there was no head, let alone a mouth, to breathe into. The head was decapitated. This body belonged to a young 22 year old prostitute Deedeh Goodarzi. The other body has never been identified. Both bodies had their heads decapitated and their hands cut off.

Another prostitute, Helen Sikes, was found about one month later than the above murders. Her throat was slit so deep that she was almost decapitated. Her legs, lying side by side, were found a block away from her body.

At the same hotel as MaryAnn Carr was found, another prositute was found on May 18th 1980. She was beaten and strangled and her body was shoved underneath the bed. This body, yet to be identified, had her breasts chewed on and a nipple almost chewed off.

Another fire and another body at another hotel was found on May 15, 1980. This prositute, Jean Reyner, was stabbed and her breasts fully severed from her body.

Richard's killing ways came to an end about 2 weeks later of the discovery of Jean's body. The same exact hotel of MaryAnn Carr and an unknown Jane Doe, cops were called due to a screaming girl in one of the rooms When the cops got there, a cut, raped, sodomized, screaming teen was in the room. Richard had bit the teens breasts so badly that they were bleeding. Not only did they find the hurt teen but they also found 33 year old Richard in the room. He didn't resist arrest.

Richard's wife had filed for divorce in 1980 stating that her husband was exhibiting extreme cruelty. She stated that her and Richard hadn't had sex since 1976 due to Richard refusing.

Richard was found guilty of killing MarryAnne, Deedah, and two Jane Does. He got 248 years in prison. Richard tried committing suicide a lot while he was awaiting trial, but unlike his victims he survived.

The heads and hands of Deedah and the Jane doe found with her have yet to be found.

"I've always wanted to be an assassin since I was a kid, but I never had the chance."

All they wanted to do was chat online or even play video games in the arcade. They would be told that a new game was being made, God Riding on a Wooden Horse. Little did they know that someone was there waiting to lure them to their death.

Huang Yong was born to a pig farmer in Henan Province, China  in 1974. He only spent a short time in the military. After that he spent most of his time in Southern China as a farm worker.

When the poor boys would go to Yong's house, they would be tied to his torture device called the "intelligent hobby horse" which looked like a noodle machine. The boys then would be drugged, raped and then strangled. Most of the times Yong would only strangle the boys until they passed out. He would then wake them up again to rape them and torture them. He would continue this pattern until he got bored. He also would perform posthumous rape.

When he was bored, he would strangle the boys until they died and cut up their body. He then buried their bodies in the ground around his house. He would make sure to keep their belts as souvenirs. He told the courts that he didn't go after women because he wouldn't be considered a "hero"

His last victim, a 16 year-old boy named Zhang Liang, convinced Yong to let him go after being raped, strangled brought back and raped over and over again. The police almost didn't belive Liang's story. Liang said that Yong told him he already killed 25 boys and that he was the 26th. Cops finally believed what Liang was telling them and they arrested Yong. They found 8 bodies when they searched around Yong's home.

Yong stated he did in fact kill 25 boys. He was sentenced to death on December 9, 2003 and executed a single shot to the back of the head on December 26, 2003.

Worth Killing For?

~*Warning Graphic Photos*~

Colleen Slemmer, 19, was a pretty blonde girl that was a student at Job Corps in TN along with Christa Pike, 18.

~*Colleen Slemmer*~

Christa Pikes had a boyfriend there by the name of Tadaryl Shipp, 17. Christa thought that Colleen was coming onto Tadaryl and was pretty upset.

~*Christa Pike*~

Christa told Colleen that they should go for a walk. That walk was going to be the last for Colleen.

Christa turned on Colleen stating that she was flirting with her boyfriend Tadaryl and coming on to him. Colleen was pulled to the ground and while being held down by Tadaryl and another one of Christa's friend, Christa decided to use a box cutter and start cutting on Colleen. There was also a mini meat cleaver involved.

Colleen's body was all cut up and Tadaryl carved a pentagram on Colleen's chest. Also, the box cutter was used to slit the throat of Colleen over and over again just like her body. Colleen's neck wound was 6 inches long and so deep that you could see muscle. After all of the torture was over, Christa smashed Colleen's skull in with a piece of concrete and took a piece for a souvenir.

                                                                 ~*Throat slashed*~

Christa was the youngest person on death row at age 21. She is now 35. She is still on death row and was convicted of attempted first degree murder on August 12, 2004 for trying to strangle another inmate.

Usually they ask you to marry them........

~*Warning: Graphic details in this post. You have been warned*~

It was a demon seed and it had to die. The vessel, it's Mother, had to die too. This was the thought of the boyfriend.

 ~*Delmer Anholt*~ 

Delmer and Tara began dating when she was 15 and he was 16. They met through one of Tara's relatives. They both lived in St. Johns, Oregon, but Tara's family was getting ready to move away from their current city. Tara told them that she wasn't moving, but staying there in St. Johns. Delmer's family agreed to let Tara move in with them, so she could finish high school at her current school. Her parents agreed, not after some long thought though.

Delmer started getting into trouble when he hit the 7th grade, to which he started smoking pot and cigarettes. He wasn't a very good student in high school either, and got kicked out. Delmer never graduated. One day Delmer threatened to kill his sister, and this landed him in a detention center. He stayed there for a few months. He was also sent to a school for troubled teens. Also, when he was with Tara he got popped for first degree theft, was on probation and got in trouble again. He then had to spend 14 months in OCI. Tara was right there waiting for him. Being a faithful girlfriend, she would go see him any chance that she had between her waitress jobs and school.

While Tara and Delmer were together, they started sleeping together. This led to unplanned, and aborted pregnancies. Three aborted by professionals and one by Delmer. Delmer would make Tara go and get the abortions. Tara wanted to keep her fourth baby, but Delmer thought it belonged to another man.

Delmer got into an argument with his relatives. The argument was about an inheritance from his Father. Delmer and Tara packed up and decided to go to the family cabin in Long Beach, Washington. They had to hitch-hike along the way, being picked up by two motorists. These rides were confirmed by the drivers themselves.When the second ride dropped Delmer and Tara off, they were in the city of Scappoose in Oregon.

The couple found a barn that had a mattress, some chairs and a table. Delmer stated to the police that the thought of killing Tara was in his mind at that time in the barn, but he lost his knife. Police later found the knife laying next to the mattress. Delmer and Tara decided to leave the barn and they found themselves in inside of a cemetery that was on the opposite side of the street than the barn.

While in the cemetery, Delmer told Tara to confess to God and Jesus. He asked her to do this, because he felt that the baby she was carrying was not his, but of another man, and was a demon seed. Tara refused to confess stating that it was his baby not anyone else's. Since Tara refused to confess, Delmer decided to take care of the demon seed himself.

He didn't do it quickly by any means. He tortured Tara. His hatred was towards the baby, but Tara being the vessel, had to endure the pain since she was still alive. He didn't think to kill Tara and then the baby, oh no, he was heartless. He had tied Tara's ankles to her neck using slip knots. This would make it so that if Tara would struggle it the knots would tighten around her neck and choke her. Tara was eight and a half months pregnant. Delmer drove ten penny spikes, 8-10 inches long and dull at the ends, all the way into Tara's abdomen. Delmer then dug his thumbs into her eye sockets and was moving them around until one of her eyeballs came out of their socket. The eyeballs were gouged way down deep into her sinuses. The eyeball socket situation was witnessed by a police officer that came upon the scene of the torture. Tara's nose was completely cut off. She also had severe burns on her vagina and buttocks. A metal spike was driven into Tara's right pelvic region, and a fishing pole extruded from her vagina. Her buttocks was also placed upon, to which protruded through her flesh, two very large rusty nails. Also, two pieces of fishing rods, and a flare was found in the same place. Tara was alive for most of this torture. By the time the cop showed up, she was dead. The torture also induced labor, but with all the spikes driven into the abdomen, and all the foreign obejcts inside Tara's body, the baby couldn't make it to the vaginal canal and either drowned or suffocated. This all happened on February 14, 1982.

According to Oregon law, Delmer could not be charged with the baby's murder, due to the baby not being born. Delmer Anholt Jr., on May 11, 1982, was convicted for the torture murder of Tara Lee McCarty. He was given life without parole. He is currently in the Oregon State Penitentiary.

What's for dinner?

Katherine Mary Knight was the younger of twins born on October 24, 1955 in Tenterfield, New South Wales. Katherine's Father, Ken, was a drunk and would rape her Mother, Barbara, up to ten times a day. Katherine stated that numerous family members would sexually abuse her very frequently. She stated that her Father was not one of them. This continued until she was eleven.

~*Katherine Knight*~

In school, Katherine was considered a pleasant girl that would go into a fit of rage over minor upsets. She did attack one boy in school with a weapon. When she left school, at age 15, she became a cutter. She then started her dream job, which was cutting up offal, entrails and internal organs of a butchered animal. She moved up to boning and was provided with her own set of butcher knives. She hung these knives over her bed, no matter where she lived, just so they would be there if she needed them.

Katherine met Kellett in 1973, they were co-workers. He knew how to drink and she knew how to fight. When Kellett would get into fights, Katherine was right there backing up Kellett with her fists. Katherine requested that her and Kellett get married. They rode up on her motorcycle, and Kellett was very intoxicated. Katherine's Mother told Kellett to watch his back for Katherine would not hesitate to kill him if he pissed her off. She told him that Katherine would fucking kill him.

On their wedding night, Katherine tried to strangle Kellet because he fell asleep after having sex three times. Needless to say, the marriage was not the best damn thing that happened since sliced bread! They had a little girl, Melissa Ann, and Kellett couldn't take Katherine any more and left her for another woman. In protest, Katherine took 2 month old Melissa and laid her on the railroad tracks. She then went to town with an axe and threatened to kill a lot of people. Melissa was found, and rescued, by a local resident, Old Ted. Katherine was arrested, diagnosed with postpartum depression, and released.

Katherine slashed some chicks face and demanded that the chick take her to where Kellett was. The chick escaped. The cops show up at the service station and Katherine has some little boy, holding him hostage. She was disarmed and taken to the psychiatric ward where she told nurses she was going to kill the mechanic because he fixed Kellett's car. Kellett was told of the incident, so he left his girlfriend to be by Katherine's side. She was released from the hospital and went to live with Kellet and his Mother. Another daughter was born to the couple on 3/6/80, her name was Natasha Maree. Four years later Katherine left Kellet this time.

Katherine then met David Saunders. He moved in with her, and her two daughters, but kept his apartment that he had as well. Katherine would become jealous numerous times and throw Saunders out, only to beg him to come back. She cut the throat of Saunders' two month old Dingo, stating that if he ever done her wrong, that it was going to be him next time. She then knocked him unconscious with a pan. In 1988, Katherine had another daughter, so Saunders put a deposit down on a house. Katherine decorated the house with rusted animal traps, some skulls, animal skins, some pitch forks, some boots, leather jackets and rakes. You could not see the ceiling nor the walls. They got into another argument, and Katherine hit Saunders in the face with an iron and stabbed him in the stomach with some scissors. It said to hell with this and went into hiding. He went to see his daughter, and had a restraining order put on him.

Katherine then moved on to Chillingworth, to which she had a boy named Eric. After three years, she left Chillingworth for the guy she was having an affair with, Price.

Price knew of Katherine's violent streak, but still let her and her children move in with him and his children. His children adored Katherine, and even though they had some fights, he considered their life a bunch of roses. Price refused to marry Katherine, so she video tapped all that Price had taken from his company, and sent the video to his boss. Price was fired from the job he held for seventeen years. He threw her out, later to reconcile, but refused to let her move back in. The fighting became worse, and Price lost a lot of friends. Their fights escalated to Katherine stabbing Price in the chest, he told her to leave his home and took out a restraining order. Price told his co-workers that if he did not arrive at work the next day, it was because Katherine killed him. They begged him to not go home, but he had to for his children so she wouldn't kill them too. He went home, went to bed at 11 p.m. Katherine came over, woke him up, they had sex and he went to sleep.

~*John Price*~

Price was found by police the next day, after neighbors noticed blood on the front door. Katherine was found comatose from an OD of pills. Price was stabbed 37 times while he was sleeping. He tried to escape by going out the front door, but he either fell back inside the house, or Katherine drug him back in. He bled out in the hallway. The stabs were both in his front and his back and some going into vital organs, heart, liver, stomach, lungs, left kidney to where the lower part was severed completely, pancreas, and colon. Price was skinned, quote from trutv, "The entire skin was in one piece including hair, face, ears, nose, mouth, genitals and complete stab holes and dripping in blood. Hanging from the S-hook in the doorway, the feet were dragging on the ground." He was decapitated, and Katherine actually cooked some of his body parts like a pot roast complete with zucchini, cabbage, potato, yellow squash, pumpkin and gravy. She then put the concoction above onto two place settings on the table for Price's children. She was going to feed them their own father. The kids were not home at the time of the murder and the police arrived before any type of eating took place, and found Price's head in the pot with the vegetables. They also found a third meal that was thrown into the back yard, speculations was that it was for Katherine, but she couldn't eat it. A note was left on a photo of Price, accusing him of raping her children and his children raping her children.

Katherine went to plead guilty to manslaughter, but it was denied by the courts. She was charged with murder, and she pled not guilty. The trial commenced some jurors were advised they could be excused because of the graphic photos. Katherine was going to be defended stating that she had amnesia and disassociation. DENIED. She then pled guilty, but still refused to live up to what she did. It wasn't said as to why the guilty plea to murder all of the sudden. The judge stated that Katherine's lack of remorse is going to be the cause of the most sever penalty that can be given. She was sentenced to life in prison without parole, and gave the order to have all her papers marked with "never to be released."

Katherine appealed stating that the sentence was too harsh for the killing. All the judges of the appeals court denied her appeal. One judge stated, "This was an appalling crime, almost beyond contemplation in a civilized society."

Love Thy Mother?

~*Warning: Some photo's on this page are graphic and may be disturbing. You have been warned.*~

Theresa Knorr, aka Theresa Jimmie Cross, was born on March 14, 1946 in Sacramento California. she gave birth to  six children, three boys and three girls.

When Theresa was 15, her Mother died. This made Theresa go into deep depression because she was very devoted to her Mother. She never fully recovered from her depression, and perhaps feeling lonely, would be the reason of marrying so young.

When she was 16, Theresa married her first husband, Clifford Clyde Sanders, who she shot to death in 1964. She was acquitted, claiming self defense. Two of her six children were with Clifford. Their names, Howard and Sheila.

~*Sheila, could not find a picture of Howard*~

Robert Knorr was her second husband. She had her remaining four children with Robert. Their names, Suesan, William, Robert and Theresa, aka Terry. Robert and Theresa ended up getting divorced. Theresa would not let Robert see his children, so he gave up and remarried. After the divorce, Theresa's drinking and drug use went out of control. She became delusional, and stated that the girls were evil spawns of Satan that were out to get her. 

 ~*Suesan, William, Robert and Theresa*~

Theresa was a very abusive Mother, but only towards her daughters. She felt that her daughters were evil and making her look ugly and fat. She had trained her Sons to beat, discipline and restrain their sisters. She would put cigarettes out on their flesh, have the boys hold the girls down and beat them or hold them down for their Mother to beat them. She would force feed the girls so much that they would vomit, and then she would make them eat their vomit.

Theresa seemed to treat the oldest of the three daughters the worst. Knorr thought that Suesan was putting spells on her forcing her to gain wait so she shot Suesan in the chest. The bullet lodged into Suesan's back. If someone was hurt in this family, no one went for help, they knew better. Suesan was left to die in the bathtub, however, she didn't die. When Theresa noticed that her daughter was going to live, she started to nurse her back to health.

Suesan recovered and demanded that she be allowed to move. Theresa told Suesan that she could move, as long as, she could remove the bullet from the back, so to remove evidence. Suesan agreed, anything to get freedom. Suesan was given a concauction of Mellaril capsuls and some hard liquor to knock her out. Once she was out, Theresa ordered her 15 year old son Robert to take a box cutter and cut out the bullet. Robert did as he was told, and after cutting through several layers of skin and muscle, he found the bullet. Suesan woke up to horrible pain, she had an infection. Soon Suesan had jaundice, and went into a coma. Theresa thought her daughter had died, so she ordered all the children to get all of Suesan's belongings, and Suesan, and put them in the car. They all drove to Square Creek Bridge, where Theresa ordered the boys to take Suesan out of the car and carry her to the creek bank. The youngest daughter Terry was ordered to get all of Suesans stuff and put it down by Suesan. Then she was ordered to douse everything, even Suesan, with gasoline and light it on fire. No one looked back. She was 16.

~*Suesan's body*~

The next target, now being the oldest, was Sheila. Sheila was forced into prostitution. Sheila kind of welcomed being a prostitute, because it meant that she got to come and go as she pleased. However, one day Theresa accused Sheila of transmitting an STD to her via the toilet seat, and she completely freaked out again, beating Sheila black and blue. Sheila was handcuffed and locked inside an excruciatingly hot closet, with order from Theresa to provide Sheila with no food or water. She died a week later of starvation and dehydration. She was thrown into a cardboard box and dumped along the side of the road. She was 20. She was not identified until years later.

~*Sheila's body*~

The last of the daughters was Terry. She claimed that she lived because she stood up to her Mother telling her that she is going to leave. Her Mother stated that Terry could leave, as long as, she burned down the apartment they were living in to get rid of any evidence that was left from killing Sheila. Of course, Terry did as she was told, and burned the apartment down. Theresa held a knife to her daughter's throat to make it so Terry didn't leave, but Terry stood up to her again, and left. She went to the authorities, but no one believed what she was saying, saying it was too grotesque and unheard of.

A detective was on the case of the two female bodies that were found. Once by the creek and the other along side the road. Terry was watching American's Most Wanted, none of the stories were about her family, and decided, again, to try to provide the story of what happened in her family. They checked with Jane Doe reports, and everything started to fall into place.

After the apartment was set on fire, Theresa and Robert, the only one to stay by his Mother's side, moved to Vegas. Before they moved, Howard had left, wanting nothing to do with the family, and William moved in with a girlfriend. While Theresa and Robert were in Vegas, Robert went into a bar, details still are not clear, but when he left in handcuffs, he also left the bartender dead. He was sentenced to 16 years in Jail. After the commotion, Theresa was scared and moved to SLC, UT. This is where she was captured, due to a drivers license application.

Knorr was charged with the two counts of murder, two counts of conspiracy to commit murder, multiple murder and murder by torture. She pled not guilty at first, but when she got news that one of her Sons was going to testify against her, she avoided capital punishment by pleading guilty to all charges. She has been sentenced to two consecutive life sentences, with the possibility of parole in 2027. Robert was given 3 more years to be added to the 16 he was already serving, and William got probation.
