SQK “Unsolved in North America” 8 unsolved cases by Harold Schechter, Michael Newton, Lee Mellor & more! #serialkiller #truecrime #amreading

SKQ_Vol1No3_Cover-1800x2700

Yet another triple feature! “Unsolved in North America” – the third issue of Serial Killer Quarterly – focuses on six American and two Canadian cases of multiple murderer in which the slayer has eluded justice.

Three years before Jack the Ripper stalked the streets of Whitechapel, a bold and barefoot killer was slipping into Austin’s outbuildings to murder and rape black servant girls, sometimes after death. In his Servant Girl Annihilator, acclaimed true crime writer Harold Schechter drags this gruesome piece of Texan history back into the light for modern eyes to behold. 2500 miles north as the crow flies, and 20 years later, a series of bizarre decapitation/arson murders commenced in the gold-gutted Yukon.

Canadian serial murder specialist Lee Mellor takes a look at these slayings, along with providing nail-biting articles on America’s most infamous unsolved serial murder case, the Zodiac Killer of San Franscisco, as well as the Montreal Child Murders: a spate of tragic pedophile killings which plagued the city throughout the Eighties.

Another Franco-American cultural centre was shaken to the core between 1918-1919, when the shadowy Axeman of New Orleans slashed and bludgeoned unsuspecting Italian couples in their beds. Grinning Man Press co-founder Aaron Elliott tells of this jazz-happy native of Tartarus, and his possible (but improbable) connection to organized crime.

The mob also appear as unlikely suspects in prolific author Michael Newton’s The Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Run. Set against the backdrop of prohibition-era Cleveland, a seemingly-bisexual butcher left at least 10 victims dismembered and disfigured in and around the city while legendary detective Eliot Ness faltered in his attempts to capture the perpetrator.

In more recent events, Robert Hoshowsky and Kim Cresswell reveal the details of intriguing serial murder mysteries on America’s two coasts: California’s menacing Golden State Killer (aka the Original Night Stalker) and New York’s Long Island Serial Killer. Considering how many of these offenders may still be at large and lurking in a community near you, Grinning Man Press warns that “Unsolved in North America” may destabilize your sense of personal security, result in intense fear and paranoia, and lead you to invest great quantities of money in alarm systems, intricate locks, and firearms. But, if you think you’re safer not knowing…

SERIAL KILLER QUARTERLY is now available in eBook format! #serialkillers #truecrime #kindle #itunes

SKQ_Vol1No1_Cover-1800x2700The debut issue of Serial Killer Quarterly, “21st Century Psychos”, explores seven of the new millennium’s most notorious multiple murder cases. In her feature story “Building a Mystery”, Dr. Katherine Ramsland examines the life and crimes of Israel Keyes – arguably the most organized and mobile serial murderer in American history. In direct contrast to Keyes’s secretive slayings, the Beltway Snipers, John Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, murdered random civilians in broad daylight and openly taunted the authorities. Michael Newton – author of 265 books including the groundbreaking Encyclopedia of Serial Killers – details their three week reign of terror in his feature “Islam Will Explode”. Lee Mellor‘s “Web of Spiders” discusses the milestone case of “Slavemaster” John Edward Robinson: the Internet’s first serial killer. Other articles in “21st Century Psychos” include:

“Love in the Ashes” – Arthur Ellis-award nominee Robert J. Hoshowsky takes on Sheila Labarre – an aging nymphomaniac who seduced, slaughtered, and incinerated three male victims on her New Hampshire farm, challenging our views on the nature of female serial killers forever.

“The Interview” – Curtis Yateman’s impressionistic look at the 2009-2010 murders committed by Canadian Airforce base commander Col. Russell Williams.

“Checkmate” – The story of post-Soviet Russia’s most prolific serial slaughterer, “Chessboard Killer” Alexander Pichushkin, as recounted by Grinning Man Press co-founder Aaron Elliott.

“Canada’s Killer Countryboy?” – Kim Cresswell sheds light on clean-cut “country boy” Cody Legebokoff, who at the age of 21 was charged with the murders of four women in western Canada. Is his guilt a certainty, or is there more to this story than meets the eye?
