Would-be serial killer sentenced to 18 years in prison

EVERETT — An Edmonds woman who lured a man to a motel room with plans to cut out his heart and eat it was sentenced Tuesday to 18 years in prison.

The victim fought for his life inside the Lynnwood motel room as the knife-wielding stranger he met on Craigslist straddled him and informed him she was a serial killer. Amy Brown, a dog groomer who lived with her parents, stabbed the man in the chest with a pocket knife. She lunged at him several more times before he pushed her off the bed, running for his life. He survived the Jan. 29 encounter.

Police later would find a life-sized coffin in Brown’s bedroom, along with a journal outlining her plans to become a serial killer and drawings for what she dubbed a “murder shack.” She repeated her plans to the cops — “I decided I wanted to become a serial killer

Jewish-American serial killer speaks out from prison

David Berkowitz, who terrorized the New York City of suburb of Yonkers 40 years ago and murdered at least six people under the alias “Son of Sam” gave an exclusive interview on Friday to CBS.

In the interview, he expressed regret for his actions and claimed he was under the influence of the Devil. At the time of the murders, Berkowitz said he was serving “him.”

“I feel that he took over my mind and body,” he said, “and I just surrendered over to those very dark forces. I regret that with all my heart, but that was like 40 years ago.”

Berkowitz was born Jewish, but converted to become a born-again Christian, and said he wished that he could tell his younger-self to turn back and avoid the “destruction.” He said he hoped that through the interview, people would better understand his depression and believe that he had changed.
