Hey there!
A dark blog detailing my fascination with Serial Killers, History (Mainly Nazi), Macabre Experiments, Forensic Science, Psychology, Cult Films, Iconic Photographs, Anarchy & anything else that may perk my morbid curiosity.

It must be stressed that this is simply a "True Crime" blog amongst other things.
I do not, have never and will never condone the actions of any of the killers posted on this blog nor do I rationalize or sympathize with them.

The Disturbing Exorcisms and Death of Anneliese Michel:

Anneliese Michel was believed to have been possessed by demons from 1968 right up to her death in 1976, ages sixteen to twenty-three.
Raised in a religious family, she was diagnosed with epilepsy in her high school years, but continued studying to become a teacher despite the ineffectiveness of medication for her condition.

Over time, Anneliese Michel complained of seeing disturbing visions while saying her prayers. Later, evil voices giving her commands followed. Finally, Anneliese began showing an aversion to religious iconography. An older woman, a friend of the Michel family, noticed this while on a pilgrimage with Anneliese. She said that Anneliese smelled “hellishly bad” and took her to see some priests. Many of them said Anneliese needed a doctor. However, one eventually said Anneliese needed an exorcism and an exorcism was eventually granted.

She claimed to be posessed by Judas, Nero, Hitler, Cain, Lucifer and others, and was reported to have spoken in languages Annalise herself didn’t know while controlled by these spirits. Her symptoms persisted through 67 exorcisms, and she exhibited strange behaviours like urinating on the floor and licking it up, hiding under tables and barking, and eating insects, before dying of malnutrition and dehydration, weighing 68 pounds.

Anneliese Michel died of dehydration and malnutrition on July 1, 1976, after her parents left her barking underneath a table for two days. Josef Michel (her father), Anna Michel (her Mother) and the two exorcists were eventually charged with negligent homicide.
During the trial, evidence of the possession worked both for and against the defense. Forty-two of the exorcisms were audio-recorded and there were various pictures of a seriously ill-looking, bruised and sore-covered Anneliese. Anneliese is horrifying in these tapes which works for the defense that she was possessed, but is certainly not conclusive. If nothing else, the tapes made it clear that Anneliese was seriously ill and no one was making her eat. It is certain that possessed or not, Anneliese should have been cared for better.

The Audio Tapes can be viewed here. It must be noted, the video in the link is quite disturbing.

“Mr. Dahmer did not feel as though these people were dead because he was still relating to them. He would talk to them, he would cuddle them, he would hold them, he would think about them. He took the skull of somebody he’d killed and kept it in a locker so he could be close and have companionship with it. Now, that’s very, very sick, but to him it felt as though there was something warm and comforting happening, not that he was doing something terrible and awful.”

Dr. Fred Berlin, a Psychiatrist who formed part of the Defence Team.

Hey I hope its not to muck to ask but I was talking to my father and he said that jack the ripper was just recently found out beacuse of modern testing. Do you know anything about it Or who it was? He also said it was one of the six original victims.

A question by gnossisarts575

I actually wrote a post about this which you can read here.

But, cutting a long story short, DNA evidence has now shown beyond reasonable doubt that the Polish immigrant Aaron Kosminski was Jack the Ripper.

The breakthrough was made after a man named Russell Edwards bought a shawl at an auction (A shawl found by the body of Catherine Eddowes, one of the Ripper’s victims), which was later analysed and found to contain DNA from her blood as well as DNA from the killer.

Using cutting-edge techniques, a forensic team was able to extract 126-year-old DNA from the material and compare it to DNA from descendants of Eddowes and the suspect, with both proving a perfect match.

I am not quite sure what you mean with your last question though.. Sorry.
Hope I helped and have a lovely day!

Hanged, Drawn, and Quartered:

In this torture technique, the victim is dragged in a wooden frame called a hurdle to the place of execution. They would then be hanged by the neck for a short period of time until they are near-death (hanged), followed by disembowelment and castration where the entrails and genitalia are burned in front of the victim (drawn). The victim would then be divided into four separate parts and beheaded (quartered).

thank you for all the well-organized information! i wish i could follow, but i have to keep my dashboard relatively clean haha. you seem very kind. keep doing what you do & have a lovely day (:

A question by cainsugar

Aw, thank you very much!
Haha, I doubt your ability to keep your dash “clean”. This is tumblr! You can follow all nature blogs and you will STILL end up with porn on it 😜

Regardless, this is very kind and I appreciate your lovely words.
Have a great day!

Have you ever heard or investigated the unazod theory? (Kaczynski as the zodiac killer)

A question by meeevs

I had never heard of the “UNAZOD Theory” until you brought it up, and good god.. It certainly is interesting.

Kaczynski’s multi-criminal talents do provide a compelling reason as to why he would be a candidate for the Zodiac Killer case however nothing in his personal history or in the Montana cabin where he was arrested directly linked him to the Zodiac slayings, even though there were meticulous records of his Unabomber crimes..

UNAZOD believers point to Kaczynski having lived in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 1960s, the Zodiac’s promise to begin bomb attacks and Kaczynski’s well-honed ability to construct bombs, the communications with both news media and police after committing murderous acts and the use of intricate coded records of the crimes as evidence.

There is just one problem with the sudden optimism of those who see Kaczynski as the Zodiac:
Zodiac fingerprint evidence and expert handwriting analysis ruled out Kaczynski years ago, along with travel records that place Kaczynski away from California on several of the key crime dates.

I love all the things you listed in your bio! I'm so haaappy. Documentaries on serial killers are great too. Just being able to see how their mind works to process all the thoughts and feelings that lead to their motives is just wow. <3 <3 <3

A question by absolu-luxure

That is one of the most enthralling aspects when it comes to studying serial killers!
Learning about the motive behind the murder.. That always captivates me.

It’s simply fascinating how broad that spectrum is!
I mean, you have killers that believe they are carrying out “God’s work” and then you have those that kill out of boredom.
Delving into their psyche is truly something.

But you already know that.

Thanks to modern forensic science, the true identity of Jack the Ripper, the serial killer responsible for at least five grisly murders in Whitechapel in East London during the autumn of 1888 has finally been revealed.

DNA evidence has now shown beyond reasonable doubt that Polish immigrant Aaron Kosminski was Jack the Ripper.

A shawl found by the body of Catherine Eddowes, one of the Ripper’s victims, has been analysed and found to contain DNA from her blood as well as DNA from the killer.
