Meeting a Murderer
Turn on the TV or pick up a newspaper and you’ll soon see that as a society, we’re obsessed with murder.
Death has fascinated humans since ancient times, largely because of the mystery of what lies beyond, as well as the very basic yet incomprehensible fact that, one day, we will no longer exist.
Our time on Earth is finite, so many of us set out to make the most of it. From bucket lists to chasing our dreams, it’s easy to take the adage “Live today as if it were your last” to heart… especially once you consider how many cold blooded killers there are out there.
From crime novels to popular documentaries like The Jinx and Making a Murderer, interviewing convicted or suspected killers in order to understand their thoughts and motives takes us to places within our own humanity where we’ve never been before.
Learn about some of America’s most notorious killers and hear their own testimonies here…
One of the most notorious serial killers in American history, Ted Bundy killed at least 30 women during the 1970s in various states, committing kidnapping, rape, torture, and even necrophilia.
Considered handsome, charming, and charismatic, Bundy denied all guilt for years while behind bars, though he finally confessed to at least some of his crimes in the hours before his execution by electric chair on January 24, 1989.
Nicknamed the BTK Strangler for “Bind, Torture, Kill,” Dennis Rader murdered ten people in and around Wichita, Kansas between 1974 and 1991. Rader is infamous for sending detailed accounts of his murders in letters to the press and police; this habit ultimately led to his arrest in 2005. He was president of his church council at the time.
Rader is currently serving 10 consecutive life sentences in Kansas.
