Some of the most known gay and lesbian serial killers in history.
Since I haven`t seen such an article posted on any blog so far, I thought it would be interesting to write a post regarding some of the most known gay and lesbian serial killers in history. Maybe most of you don`t know that there were gay men who killed hundreds of guys, or lesbian women who tortured and killed their wives/girlfriends. Don`t get me wrong, I`m not trying to bring any bad light on the LGBT community, it`s just that it seems a very interesting topic and I guess we should all be aware of certain things.
It is known that generally speaking, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people are victims of assaults or hate crimes, but sometimes they`re the ones who claim lives. So, here you`ll find a list of names as well as detailed information for a few gay or lesbian serial killer.
1. Luis Garavito - He is a 53 year old Colombian serial killer, who is said to have killed no less than 140 young boys. He used the same technique every time, after torturing them and abusing them he just cut their throats and then dismember their bodies without any remorse. The proofs of his horrible crimes usually consist in skeletons found at the crime scenes where he used to bury them, as well as confesses of those who escaped this ferocious murderer.
2. Aileen Wuornos - You probably know Aileen Wuornos from the movie "Monster" (where Charlize Theron brilliantly played her role). Well, Aileen Wuornos was a lesbian serial killer who used to kill her clients after they paid her for her services. Aileen Wuornos was sentenced the death penalty back in the year of 2002. You could browse on the Internet for some interviews with Aileen Wuornos right before her execution, and if you ask me... boy, she seemed quite an intelligent woman, but she was literally driven crazy by her unstable and totally misfortunate destiny.
3. John Wayne Gacy - John Wayne Gacy is known for abusing and killing no less than 33 boys and adult men. He was a married bisexual man, seemed quite a family guy and he worked as an entertainer for friends and family, playing the role of a clown. When the bodies of the boys and men he murdered were found on his property, Jogn Wayne Gacy confessed without any sign of remorse that he must be held responsible for all of the 33 crimes he commited. As expected, he was sentenced to death - lethal injection - and died at the age of 52.
4. Gwen Graham & Cathy Wood - A couple of lesbians who worked as nurses and are supposed to have killed 5 or 6 women. The victims of Gwen Graham and Cathy Wood were usually old women who weren`t able to fight back or defend themselves, so they were easy to kill. The lesbian couple seemed to be very intelligent. While Cathy Wood was sentenced to life imprisonment, her lover Gwen Graham was only sentenced to 40 years of jail for the horrible crimes they`ve commited while working as nurses.
5. Patrick Kearney - Patrick Kearney is a gay serial killer who murdered around 28-30 men and teenagers. His modus operandi consisted of flirting with boys and men after which he killed them and dismembered their bodies, afterwards wrapping them in bags and throwing on the side of the road as if they were garbage. Patrick Kearney was given a life sentence, and he is now 70 years old. I`m sure he`s enjoying life behind the bars!
6. Ed Gein - Serial killer confused about his gender - a supposed transgender, manifesting permanent wish of having a Gender Reassignment Surgery. Undoubtedly, he was one of the most terrible serial killers America has seen. He was a grave robber who used to still the bodies of recently buried women, skinning them and then wearing their skins. Besides, he removed parts of their bodies such as breasts or genitalia, painted them and used them as decorations. In addition to this, he used to make breasts out of womens` skins and wear them afterwards. Movies like "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" were inspired after the atrocious serial killer Ed Gein.
Well, this would be all, but if you got any other information regarding gay serial killers or lesbian serial killers, please feel free to post comments!
