Kush | 18 | Kenya

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.

Andrei Chikatilo was a Ukrainian serial killer, nicknamed the Butcher of Rostov and ‘The Red Ripper.’  He was convicted of the murder of 53 women and children between 1978 and 1990.
He established a pattern of approaching runaways and young vagrants at bus or railway stations and enticing them to leave.  A quick trip into a nearby forest was the scene for the victim’s death.
The victims were all women and children. The adult females were often prostitutes or homeless tramps who could be lured with promises of alcohol or money.  Chikatilo would usually attempt intercourse with these victims. The child victims were of both sexes, and Chikatilo would lure them away with his friendly, talkative manner by promising them toys or candy.
He was finally caught when trying to approach young children whilst under police surveillance.  He went to trial on April 14, 1992. Despite his odd and disruptive behavior in court, he was judged fit to stand trial.  During the trial he was famously kept in a cage in the center of the courtroom; it was constructed for his own protection from the relatives of the deceased.  The trial had a very disturbing atmosphere.  The relatives kept shouting threats and insults to Chikatilo, demanding the authorities to release him so that they could execute him on their own.  He was found guilty of 52 of the 53 murders and sentenced to death for each offense. He was executed by firing squad (shot in the back of the head).
