View Full Version : Who is the most famous murderer in America?

If you did a nationwide survey and asked people to name three people who have killed somebody at any time in American history, who would be named most often? This can be any murderer, whether it's a political murder or just a plain ol' street murder.

They have to have personally killed someone, so unless you really believe that President Bush is killing babies in the White House, please refrain from political conjecture.

Give me some suggestions and I'll start a poll. Off the top of my head, we've got:

Lee Harvey Oswald
James Earl Ray
O.J. Simpson (even though he didn't do it)
Lizzie Borden
Charles Manson
Ted Bundy
John Wayne Gacy
Leon Czolgocz (sp?)
Sirhan Sirhan

Who else should be on the poll? Who killed McKinley?

ed gein and hollywood

http://www.fortunecity.com/roswell/streiber/273/gein_cf.htm
One such early film was Psycho. Based on the Robert Bloch novel and made into a Hitchcock film. The connection being the overpowering mother and horror of the film, it made it one of the first of a kind. Robert Bloch got most of the ideas for Psycho from Ed Gein's life.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was one movie lightly based on Ed Gein. The story is about a group of travelling teen’s who stumble on a horror house. The house’s residents are a family of weird homicidal cannibals who also like grave robbing and constructing furniture made of bones and skulls alike. The lead bad guy is called ‘Leatherface’. Leatherface likes chasing teen’s around with his chainsaw and wearing the human face mask of his victims. There are about four Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies each with the teen’s trying to escape the deadly Leatherface. The connection is mostly with the house, graverobbery and the cannibalism.
One more recent and Academy Award winning film is Silence of the Lambs. It’s about an FBI agent who’s tracking down a serial killer and to find him she must get the help of an intelligent cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lector. The serial killer she’s trying to track down is called ‘Buffalo Bill’ because he likes to kill women and make clothes of their skin, also he wants to be a woman, hence the skin costume like that of Gein. There are a lot of connections to this film and Ed Gein, being with the skin clothes, cannibalism, and Buffalo Bill being a transvestite.

Actually, there is no proof of that, plus one of the prime suspects was an American Dr., I forget his name but he had a hatred for women (stemming from his momma), was in Britain at the time of the killings and had a collection of Uteri (is that correct spelling, usage?) in his tiny apartment.

The 'fact' is, with even rudimentary reading comprehension skills, the ambigiuity you see is not present in the text.
Fun is pointing out actual ambiguities. Manufacturing them through obstinance is just stoopid.

I suppose you and I have differing ideas as to what is 'fun' and what is not.

The English Channel coast, near the white cliffs of Dover. It's one of the most famous coasts in America.

Not to pick on you, oslu. You're just the most recent transgressor. But if you feel the need to explain who someone is and what they did when offering a name, he's probably not the MOST FAMOUS.

If you have to explain what they did, there's no way in hell they should be in this conversation.

Shipman was British, right? So unless he murdered an American by throwing him off the White Cliffs of Dover or burying him under the Great Wall of China, he's out.
