The Harrowing Case of “People Collector” Gary Heidnik Kidnapper, rapist, killer wanted a harem

If you know even a little bit about serial killers, I’ve no doubt that you’re familiar with the term “trophies.” A trophy is basically an item confiscated by a killer – usually taken at the time of the murder – to remind him of the victim and help him to relive the crime. Robert Hansen kept jewelry, Joel Rifkin kept driver’s licenses, and Jeffrey Dahmer kept actual body parts. It’s become so ubiquitous in pop culture references to serial killers that when they’re caught in the movies, it almost always seems like discovery of their stash of trophies is part of the plot. But what if keeping trophies wasn’t enough? What if your urge was not to collect items, but to collect people? Such was the case with Gary Heidnik.

What Motivated Sarah Winchester to Build the Winchester Mystery House? Spirits? Freemasonry? Guilt?

Despite the horrible loss, William and Sarah pressed on until 1880 when another blow hit – the death of William’s father, Oliver. Then – quite unexpectedly – William himself succumbed to tuberculosis, less than one year later, at the age of 43. This reportedly sent Sarah into a tailspin. Though she was now one of the wealthiest women in the world with an inheritance of 20 million dollars plus nearly 50% of the Winchester Arms stock—which, in turn earned her approximately $1,000 dollars per day in royalties for the rest of her life – Sarah just didn’t know how to cope. She “ran away” to Europe for the next three years. It is unknown what she did there, as no records exist.

THE WALKING DEAD – Hilltop and the Value of Diplomacy Gregory sucks but no one got killed

Diplomacy is a real skill and under the circumstances — vastly outnumbered and outgunned in a very delicate, hair-trigger situation — anything less than smarmy cooperation would have resulted in certain disaster. Maybe Gregory’s knack for strategic ass-kissing is why he is still head man at Hilltop. Certainly Rick’s pride and defiance would have led nowhere good.
