Totally Terrifying True Crime Trivia: Outrageous Facts About Murders, Maniacs, and Mayhem (Paperback)
For the true fans of true crime: If you think nothing can shock you, think again.
With heart-pounding real-life stories of serial killers, sadistic torturers, flesh-eating cannibals, and creepy evil-doers of all kinds, Totally Terrifying True Crime Trivia gives you the gory details your curiosity craves. Meet the most demented figures of all time, like Richard Chase, the necrophile who delighted in drinking his victim’s blood; Gilles Garnier, the self-proclaimed werewolf who hunted children; and Ed Gein, who used his victims’ bodies like craft supplies. You’ll be double-checking your deadbolt every night after stepping into the twisted minds of killers like:
- Pedro Rodrigues Filho, a.k.a. the Brazilian Dexter, who considered himself a vigilante for justice and took the lives of over 100 drug dealers, murderers, and rapists.
- Mother-daughter cult leaders May Blackburn and Ruth Rizzio, who went from sacrificing animals to baking thirty-year-old Florence Turner to death in a sacrificial oven.
- Professor Khaw Him Sun, who offed his wife and daughter in 2015 with the most unlikely of murder weapons: a poison yoga ball.
