This is a slide show presentation by a student studying forensics. The topic is about serial killers. It is very Interesting and all of the information is true. I have heavily edited and deleted the graphic and disturbing photos and information. However, parents may want to preview this first. Mrs. Bowman

Outcome One of his victims escaped and a neighbor called the police, who believed Dahmers’ story of the boy being his lover and released the boy to Dahmers’ custody and his death. A final victim was lucky enough to escape and this time the police took notice. He admitted to the murders and detailed his brutality. He plead guilty and insane but the jury found him guilty and sane, while he was in prison one inmate tried to slash Dahmers’ throat unsuccessfully, the next attack (with an iron bar) was successful in smashing Dahmers’ scull and killing him.

Personality # 1, Ted Bundy Born 1946, executed 1989, aged 43 Loving (church going) family Married (in jail) College graduate, law student, politically ambitious, rape counselor. Respected and admired by (most) who met him. Popular with women, generally considered to be a nice guy. Served on crime prevention committees Performed community service regularly
Personality # 2, Lady Killer Chose victims who looked like his ex girlfriend. Crimes spanned four states Escaped from jail to resume his killing spree Protested his innocence until he was sentenced to death, when he showed remorse.
Outcome Bundy managed to escape detection by pure fluke several times before finally being caught for attempted kidnapping. His previous flukes were due to his reputation as an upstanding citizen, and his charm. After he was imprisoned for kidnapping, while awaiting extradition to face other charges he escaped and went on a further killing spree. This time he was seen trying to abduct a school girl, a few days later he was arrested again and sentenced to death. Hours before his execution he gave an interview, where he accepted responsibility for his crimes and wished to inform the public of the encouragement he had from pornographic material, saying it was an addiction that he constantly needed harder and more until he finally acted his fantasies out.
In Summary… This lecture has shown that no one is safe from serial killers, however, thankfully they are rare. They target either young or old, or both. They target men, women, boys and girls. They do not have any identifying features. They do not look like they are serial killers. Quite often they are respected members of the community. In the words of Ted Bundy: we are your husbands, your fathers, your sons, your mothers, your daughters. The truth is that we only know people as well as they want us to know them.
