Here’s What 4 Children Of Serial Killers Have To Say About Their Notorious Parents

Growing up is hard enough. Imagine if your father is a notorious serial killer. Here’s what four children had to say about their dads in their own words.

1. “Happy Face Killer’s” Daughter

Melissa Moore is the daughter of serial killer Keith Jesperson, who killed eight people in the 1990s. He received the nickname “Happy Face Killer” because of the smiley face he doodled onto letters he wrote. Those letters detailed his crimes, which he bragged about.

Moore has taken a different route than her father. Instead of hurting people, she has become an advocate for other children of killers. She has been in touch with more than 100 relatives of murderers and helps them share their stories. She is a crime correspondent and the host/executive producer of LMN’s show “Monster in My Family.”

As for her father, she doesn’t have kind words.

“I’m ashamed that he’s my dad,” Moore told a

First look at Zac Efron as notorious serial killer Ted Bundy

The 30-year-old star has swapped his Baywatch trunks for an outlaw tee in what promises to be one of the most interesting releases this year.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile follows the love story between Bundy and his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, played by Lily Collins.

Collins also shared a photo of her character on social media, as did director Joe Berlinger, a documentarist debuting in fiction.

“Excited to be doing time on my new Zac Efron and Lily Collins movie… we start shooting tomorrow,” he wrote.

The role can be a game changer for Efron, who has been associated with heartthrob characters and comedies.

Charles Manson

Charles Manson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison. He was 83.

Manson, whose name to this day is synonymous with unspeakable violence and madness, died at 8:13 p.m. of natural causes at a Kern County hospital, according to a California Department of Corrections statement.

Michele Hanisee, president of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys, reacted to the death by quoting the late Vincent Bugliosi, the Los Angeles prosecutor who put Manson behind bars. Bugliosi said: “Manson was an evil, sophisticated con man with twisted and warped moral values.”

Detective Who Helped Capture Notorious Serial Killer Richard Ramirez Speaks: ‘He Was Pure Evil’

In the 1980s, a serial killer was on the loose in Los Angeles — but his methods baffled authorities.

The killer used a wide variety of weapons: handguns, knives, a machete, and even a tire iron. Some of his victims were robbed; others were raped. Some were fatally shot.

Even more inexplicably, the man — who the media dubbed the Night Stalker — left some victims alive, seemingly at random. From April 1984 to August 1985, he killed at least 14 people.

Eventually, police identified the Night Stalker as 25-year-old drifter Richard Muñoz Ramirez. His name and face were soon revealed in the media. He was captured in Arizona in August 1985, when a crowd of people held him — and beat him up — until police arrived.

It took years before the case went to trial, but on September 20, 1989, Ramirez was convicted
