If fosters did serial killers....

Investigators have linked more than 60 killings in at least 14 states to a 79-year-old California inmate who may be the most prolific serial killer in U.S. history. 

Ector County, Texas District Attorney Bobby Bland said Samuel Little, also know as Samuel McDowell, continues to cooperate with investigators from around the country who interrogate him in prison about cold case killings dating back to the 1970s. 

Among those who spoke to him were investigators from Ohio, where Little grew up and where he’s suspected of killing at least five women. 

Little, who claims to have killed more than 90 women all over the country between 1970 and 2005, has told investigators he targeted women who wouldn't be missed right away, such as street people or prostitutes, and whose necks appealed to him for strangulation, which gave him sexual gratification.

The 70s and 80s were the golden age of the serial killer. 

We won't see the like of it again. 

I reckon it was leaded petrol, but who knows.

My favourite tale from my time in the Civil Service was when I went before a promotion board for Executive Officer on 1982 at the same time as serial killer Dennis Nilsen.

Needless to say he got promoted and I did not.

Clearly the interviewing panel thought a man who boiled the severed heads of his victims in the kitchen and flushed the flesh down the toilet was more suited to a management role than me.

If you had met management I have worked with over the years, I would say that the promotion boards see it as a clear attribute required.

We’ve got a guy who is going to be executed. Every police department within 200 miles sees an opportunity to clear a whole load of open cases that are spoiling their historic statistics. 

Persuade guy with nothing to lose to ‘fess up and clear the backlog. It’s what I would do if I were a police chief with targets to hit.

Human nature’s a bastard....

Not to imply, it’s in any way similar but, one of the bailiffs on than Channel 5 shite was bezzie mates with Levi Bellfield - which, of course, goes raises no discussion on the programme of the type of people who gravitate to that sort of work.

Personally I don’t think they should allow serial killers such extensive oxygen of publicity, in the US, as TV interviews or any contact with the outside world.

One night I left YouTube auto play going and it served up some vast marathon of serial killer interviews. Notwithstanding the ego trip opportunity it provides for them to try and win at serial killing top trumps I’m dubious much of value can be learned from them.

Sure you can apply after the fact cod psychology to all sorts of idiosyncrasies in their personality but I never saw any common traits that aren’t shared with a million other oddballs, and people with appalling upbringings, none of whom ever commit any murders.

Hard to know. 

There were a lot of off odd people in the Civil Service when I worked there in the 1980s who would have struggled in other jobs. The difference between Civil Service and private sector pay then was much larger then than it is now. This created a problem recruiting civil service staff in London which is where Nilsen worked. It is also probably why he got promoted in that years board and those outside the capital like me did not. Because London based civil servants tended not to socialise much outside the office it was a suitable place for a nutcase like Nilsen to go unnoticed. Previously he had been in the army and a policeman but did not carry out any murders in those jobs. It seems that it was working in the Unemployment Benefit Office that sent him off his head.

Wasn’t he really just one of the most common types - basically one where the actual murder is just destroying the evidence of a sex crime. I wonder if some start getting a sexual kick from the killing when it wasn’t the original fantasy.

Edit to add: I think the guy who worked for me, who was convicted of multiple rapes, used to work at the job centre actually - before anyone comments he’d already started before he worked for me so it wasn’t what tipped him over the edge.

There was a documentary about said chap on Channel 4 a couple weeks ago. It’s probably on their catch up service. Well worth a watch. It’s utterly compelling but they do push the angle (which I to be honest agree with) that the police didn’t care because most of the victims were black prostitutes.

Edit: Yes it is. Enjoy :S

Probably only those of us looking for pro tips.
