Spate of grisly murders around Ugandan capital raises serial killer fears

Sarah Neliima worked as a waitress at Friends Restaurant in Katabi town, a few kilometres from Uganda’s international airport in Entebbe. At 9pm on 19 September, Neliima, who lived nearby, finished for the day.

“That was the time she usually left work for home,” said Harriet Namusoke, a friend.

The next day, Neliima, 22, did not show up for work. She was not at home either. Concerned colleagues and relatives mounted a search.

Neliima’s body was found later that day in a banana garden, a stone’s throw from the Entebbe-Kampala highway – the 23rd woman to have been murdered in the area since June.

The spate of brutal deaths in Wakiso district is raising the spectre of a possible serial killer at work and local women are terrified. Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni made an impromptu visit this week to the affected communities, promising he would personally investigate the murders.

The Mahabharata Murders: Meet the serial killer who considers himself a reincarnated Duryodhana

The mind of a serial killer is a twisted place. The lives he takes don’t matter much to him, it’s all about what roles their deaths play in his scheme of things.

Such is undoubtedly the thinking of the antagonist in Arnab Ray’s The Mahabharata Murders (Juggernaut Rs 350). He considers himself to be the reincarnation of Duryodhana from the Mahabharata, choosing victims according to the characteristics he believes they share with characters from the famous epic.

Like the serial killer, the author too considers the Mahabharata to be the perfect muse. “The Mahabharata,” Ray says, “draws fuzzy lines between right and wrong and, every time you read it, you seem to get a different story, different heroes and different villains. It’s exactly the place a serial killer might want to anchor his moral compass.” For Ray himself, the place that proved to be an anchor for ‘serial killer’ books

American Horror Story: Cult May Be Partially Inspired by the Smiley Face Murders

There are a lot of things that make American Horror Story: Cult scary. We’ve got an ever increasing amount of clowns and the manifestation of another truly disturbing phobia. And, like, people are dying every episode. All of these different variables inevitably snowball together: after all, the cult-like clowns are the ones exploiting the phobias of victims and killing them. But there’s still another aspect of the whole season that’s really, really creepy: the smiley face that’s used to “mark” those who are doomed to die. Here’s something even creepier: it might be based on a true story.

In the wake of this week’s episode, Reddit user johndaniels2me suggested that Cult may be taking inspiration from a real-life string of murders. The user is referring to a popular theory that emerged nearly a decade ago.

Fear, confusion as Uganda ‘serial killer’ murders pile up

Entebbe – “We keep finding bodies. It was once a month then once every two or three weeks then every week,” said Rose Nakasinge, a middle-aged farmer. “We had to do something.”

In a gruesome spate of killings the bodies of at least 20 women have been found dumped in two areas of Uganda’s Wakiso district since May. Many of the mostly young victims were raped and strangled, some had sticks shoved into their vaginas, others had body parts sawn off.

Women living in Nansana, a suburb of the capital Kampala, and in Katabi, close to Entebbe, 35km to the southwest, see similarities in the murders that have hit their neighbourhoods and whisper of serial killers and dark rituals.

In late August police announced the arrest of more than 30 people, charging 13 of them with “murder and terrorism”, but no evidence has yet been made public and the killings have
