How notorious serial killer John Joubert’s days of slaying children came to an end

On Sept. 18, 1983, Danny Joe Eberle, 13, picked up his bundle of newspapers, loaded it on his bicycle, and pedaled off on his route delivering the Sunday Omaha World-Herald.

A few hours later, complaints started coming into the newspaper; the “sunrise edition” was late. Only three homes along Danny’s route in Bellevue, Neb., a quiet Omaha suburb, had gotten their delivery.

Danny’s father, Leonard, went out to search and found his son’s bicycle, with the papers, propped up against a fence near the start of his route. “He was proud of that bike,” Leonard Eberle told reporters — there was no way he would have left it, at least not willingly.

Three days later, investigators found Danny’s body, bound ankle and wrist, in a wooded area near the Offutt Air Force Base. There were eight stab wounds, as well as slashes and human bite marks on his body, but no signs

Exhumation confirms gravesite of notorious Chicago serial killer HH Holmes

Tests show that the remains in a suburban Philadelphia grave are indeed those of a 19th century serial killer, quelling rumors that he’d conned his way out of execution and escaped from prison.

A judge approved the exhumation of Dr. H.H. Holmes’ grave earlier this year. Descendants requested it for a series called “American Ripper” on the History Channel. Part of the show looked at whether Holmes escaped, and scientists’ findings were revealed in this week’s final episode.

Holmes, the pseudonym of New Hampshire-born physician Herman Webster Mudgett, is believed to have killed an undetermined number people at his hotel of horrors during the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. It featured a bizarre labyrinth of windowless rooms, secret passageways, false floors, trapdoors and a vault. Most of the rooms had gas vents that were controlled from Mudgett’s bedroom. Many of the rooms were soundproof and could only be locked from the outside.

But it

This month in history: How notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper started his reign of terror

August 1888 was a poignant month in history.

It was the month when London’s notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper is believed to have murdered his first victim in Whitechapel.

On August 7, a prostitute named Martha Turner was found stabbed to death on a landing of George Yard Buildings.

While she was never formally identified as one of his victims, she is considered as the most likely candidate.

The “canonical five”, the name given to the victims, first began with Mary Ann Nichols.

She was found around 4am in Bucks Row, Whitechapel on the night of August 31.

It was here where the legend of the ripper would soon spread across London as other victims fell to his brutality.

A horror hit takes on the world

Shortly after her death, London police officers began to question the neighbourhood’s prostitutes

Who Were the Victims of Notorious NYC Serial Killer Son of Sam

On April 17, 1977, Alexander Esau, 20, and Valentina Suriani, 18, were sitting in her car, which was parked in the Bronx. Both were shot twice; Suriani died at the scene, and Esau lived long enough to make it to a nearby hospital.

Police found a letter at the scene addressed to the NYPD’s chief of detectives. The letter explained the killings would not stop, and was signed “Son of Sam.” Berkowitz even taunted detectives for their lack of progress in the investigation.

“I live for the hunt—my life,” Berkowitz wrote. “I dont want to kill anymore no sir, no more but I must, ‘honour thy father.'”

John Wayne Gacy: Illinois Sheriff IDs Another Victim of Notorious Serial Killer

CHICAGO — An Illinois sheriff’s office said Wednesday that it has identified a Minnesota runaway as one of the victims of serial killer John Wayne Gacy.

In a news release, the Cook County Sheriff’s Department said that the remains of a person whose body was found under the crawl space of Gacy’s Chicago area home in 1978 were those of 16-year-old James “Jimmie” Byron Haakenson. The teenager had left his home in 1976 and was last heard from in August of that year when he called his mother and told her he was in Chicago.

Gacy was convicted of killing 33 young men and was executed in 1994. Haakenson was one of eight of Gacy’s victims who were buried without being identified. Dart’s office exhumed the remains of all eight in 2011 in an effort to identify them using DNA testing.

The gruesome truth behind four of Britain’s most notorious serial killers

Serial killers are among the toughest criminals for cops to catch – yet sometimes a simple slip-up can be enough to unlock a case.

Dedicated teams of officers can be chasing a killer for months or even years with no clues to go on.

Then out of nowhere, they get a stroke of luck – be it a slip-up by the killer or an unrelated brush with the law – which leads to an arrest.

Since Jack the Ripper stalked the shadowy streets of Victorian East London, there have been at least 34 serial killers in Britain.

But top criminologist Professor David Wilson has even warned there could be TWO active serial killers on the loose in the Britain at any one time, based on his detailed analysis of previous murders and unsolved killings.

To mark the launch of Serial Killer Season on Really at 9pm tonight (Monday, July 10), below we’ve profiled several of
