John Reginald Halliday Christie & The Serial Murders of 10 Rillington Place

One of the 20th Century's most vile serial killers, John Reginald Halliday Christie, grew up humiliated by his sexual ignorance and inexperience.  It left him almost completely impotent.  However, he later discovered that the act of strangling and otherwise overpowering a woman gave him great sexual pleasure.  In this early part of his murderous career, he killed two women, the second of which was murdered with the aid of a device of his own making, a glass jar through which he dispensed lethal coal gas.

Religion and its Place in Pragmatic Thinking: A Comparison Among the Primary Philosophies of William James and Richard Rorty

Views on religious pragmatism started with William James' book The Will to Believe and moved progressively from there (Davis, 2008, p. 77). Now different views on religious pragmatism are fought out in books and articles by pragmatists. This paper will examine the primary views of William James and Richard Rorty, with regards to other pragmatists such as Cornell West, John Dewey and Charles Pierce to compare and contrast views on religion in pragmatism.

Elephant Man, Joseph Carey Merrick

Joseph Carey Merrick lived his life in Victorian England as a "human novelty exhibit".  As the infamous "Elephant Man" Merrick's grotesque appearance was sufficent to incite public outrage; he made women faint at the sight of him.  Beneath his hideous deformities, however, lay the spirit of a sensitive, albeit wounded soul, with intelligence and respect for other living things, including those who'd wronged him.

8 Great: Black Women to Celebrate

History has left women bereft of a true sense of place in many cases.  None are as undervalued in the United States today as women of African descent.  There are, however, many truly talented, intelligent, and courageous black women who should be remembered and celebrated for their achievements.

Billy The Kid

Folk hero, legend, killer of 21 men before he reached the age of 21?  Or, in reality, an adenoidal moron, a lucky bastard whose luck finally ran out?  The complete picture of the man/boy known more infamously today as Billy The Kid will likely never be clearly drawn.

Sylvia Likens: The Girl Next Door

The 1965 murder of a 16-year-old Indianapolis girl would not exist in the realm of unforgettable crimes if not for her manner of death -- tortured, abused, and starved by an entire family of sociopaths.

Warrior Woman of Early Islam, A'isha

The story of Islam, for those open-minded enough to explore it as a purely historical narrative, is as riveting as anything found in the classic collection of fantasy tales, The 1,001 Nights.  And, much like The 1,001 Nights, Islam has its Scheherazade.

Presumed Serial Poisoner, Mary Ann Cotton

A poor working-class widow, Mary Ann Cotton has passed into history as a vicious serial poisoner, mercilessly killing her loved ones for financial gain.  She was vilified in the press most likely because of her station in life (as were more modern judicial victims, the early 1900s' Martha Rendell and the 1980s' Lindy Chamberlain of "the dingo ate my baby" infamy). Mary Ann's story, however, upon closer inspection may prove to be completely false; her execution may in fact have been one of history's more shameful miscarriages of justice.

Damaged Justice in the Career Girls Murders of 1963

When two young women--both working professionals, one a teacher, the other a magazine "copy girl"--were found stabbed to death in their apartment in 1963, police had only one thing in mind: close the case.  However, their initial suspect, a mentally incompetent black man, turned out NOT to be their killer, though he was arrested, confessed, and put behind bars.

Timothy John Evans & The Serial Murders of 10 Rillington Place

John Reginald Halliday Christie had killed two women in the early 1940s, burying their remains in his back yard. He got lucky in late 1949 when murdering the wife and infant daughter of a mildly retarded man, Tim Evans. He managed to manipulate Evans into confessing to the killings (though Evans hadn't committed them). Christie was never a suspect-as a former Special Constable he was believed beyond reproach. Tim Evans was convicted and executed for serial killer Christie's crimes.
