Final Serial Murders of 10 Rillington Place

By 1950, Reg Christie had gotten away with killing at least four people and was responsible for the conviction and execution of his upstairs neighbor, Tim Evans, for a murder Tim had not committed.  In the final stretch, Christie, after killing his wife, went on a murderous spree, killing one woman a month during the first three months of 1953.

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.

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.

Fallout from the Serial Murders of 10 Rillington Place

Reg Christie was a true serial killer; it seems unlikely that he failed to murder (after his second victim in 1944) for the next five years before killing Beryl Evans. Consideration should be given for examining unsolved British murders of women fitting Christie's M.O. for those "missing years" of criminal activity when he was at liberty and free to kill anytime he wished.

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.

Ruth Ellis' Last Stand: Britain's Final Female Execution

Ruth Ellis, the last woman executed in Britain before it abolished capital punishment, was a bleached-blonde party-girl.  Her crime, shooting her lowlife boyfriend to death was, was not very interesting or unique. The only reason Ruth Ellis' execution is remembered today is simply this: she was pretty. And pretty people make for better copy.

America's First Serial Killer and the Texas Servant Girl Murders

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.
