#13 Moses Sithole, the ABC Killer

In this episode I discuss the terrible dastardly crimes of Moses Sithole. He is best known as the ABC killer because his crimes mostly took place in Atteridgeville, Boksburg, and Cleveland in South Africa. This monster killed 38 people, and he raped at least 40 women, most of these rape victims were also his murder victims. I talk about how the famous FBI profiler Dr Robert Ressler assisted in making a profile for this killer as well as how he was ultimately caught.

#12 The Dark Strangler: Part 2

I cover the last few of Earle Leonard Nelson's horrific murders as well as how he was caught. Otherwise known as the Dark strangler, Earle Nelson murdered at least 22 people over a 16 month period in the 1920s. He would use the room for rent as a way to get into the houses of his victims where he would strangle and violate the bodies. Majority of my information came from the book "Bestial, the savage trail of a True American monster" by Harold Schechter.

#11 The Dark Strangler: Part 1

Earle Leonard Nelson, otherwise known as the Dark Strangler was one of America's first known serial killers back in the 1920s. He had a crazy early life, and then went on to commit some of the most horrendous acts of violence of all time. He had over 20 known victims, but there could have been more! In Part 1 I discuss his upbringing and the crimes that he committed in 1926. In Part 2 I will discuss the crimes committed in 1927 and his capture. I hope you enjoy!
