We all know about Jack the Ripper, of course. But there were others back then, including out in the Old West:


Are there any other real life ghouls that you might have read about from that era?

The Servant Girl Annihilator link

The Bloody Benders

Though these are not cannibals, they were quite ghoulish.

Australian Ned Kelley is a cool one. Not much of a villain though, but his appearance – and that of his brothers, is iconic.

For some reason I though someone had "debunked" most of the story about the Murder Castle. I guess I was really mistaken. That was definitely a guy with a twisted ghoulish mind..

No, Holmes was the real deal.

was watching something on the travel channel. They were investigating an old brothel where the madam was found to have whacked strangers off and then bury the bodies after robbing them

and don't forget about Sweeney Todd
