Canada's youngest murderer kills family

"Look up the youngest murderer in Canada. She (12) and her coked up boyfriend (23) murdered her parents and younger brother. Why? Because her parents didn't want her dating her boyfriend. After the murder they proceeded to have sex. When they were both caught and imprisoned, they got engaged.

She has already been released and is rumored to be going to university in Alberta. I think it's so twisted."

Man treats girlfriend's child like a dog, eventually leading to the child's death

"The Baby P story really fucked with my head. In the UK a couple of years ago, the boyfriend of this woman started beating her son. The things he did were horrific: training his dog to bite him, pulling out his fingernails/toenails, smashing his fingers, throwing him in the air and letting him hit the floor, and tossing him around, calling it roughhousing.  The boyfriend eventually did this so hard that one night he snapped Baby P's spine in half - killing him.

One of the things that stuck with me was when I read that he was trained to be submissive, and when the boyfriend would enter the room, Baby P would automatically put his head to the floor. When I first read about it, I had nightmares for weeks."

America's first serial killer disguised his murder mansion as a lodging for tourists visiting the World's Fair

"The story of H.H. Holmes, America's first serial killer. The guy built a goddamn murder castle and killed as many as 200 people all over the states and in Canada as well. The Devil in the White City is a really good read that juxtaposes his murder-y exploits with the pomp and ceremony surrounding the 1893 Chicago World's Fair."
