their infamy is a warning about what humans are capable of...
Ted Bundy - was an American serial killer who kidnapped, raped and murdered numerous young women and girls during the 1970s, possibly earlier. After more than a decade of denials, he confessed to 30 murders committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978. His true victim count is unknown.
Jeffery Dahmer - also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal or the Milwaukee Monster, was an American serial killer and sex offender who killed and dismembered seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991. His later murders involved necrophilia, cannibalism, and the permanent preservation of body parts, typically the skeleton.
OJ Simpson - On the night of June 12, 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman, were found stabbed to death outside Nicole's condo in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. Simpson, who had pleaded no contest to a domestic violence charge against Brown in 1989, was an immediate person of interest in their murders.
John Wayne Gayce - was an American serial killer and sex offender who raped, tortured, and murdered at least 33 young men and boys. Gacy also performed at children's hospitals and charitable events as "Pogo the Clown" or "Patches the Clown". He became known as the Killer Clown due to his public services as a clown prior to the discovery of his crimes.
Casey Anthony - Cindy Anthony reported Caylee Anthony missing to the Orange County Sheriff's Office. During the same telephone call, Casey confirmed to the 9-1-1 operator that Caylee had been missing for 31 days. Distraught, Cindy said: "There is something wrong. I found my daughter's car today and it smells like there's been a dead body in the damn car."
