https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-new...ittaker-one-tool-box-killers-dies-79-n1102791SAN QUENTIN, Calif. — Lawrence Sigmond Bittaker, one of the “Tool Box Killers" who preyed on teenage girls in Southern California 40 years ago, has died of natural causes, state corrections officials said Monday.
Bittaker and accomplice Roy Lewis North kidnapped, raped, tortured and murdered five girls in 1979. Their nickname came from the tools like a screwdriver, pliers and an ice pick that they used to torture and kill their victims.
Bittaker, 79, died Friday in San Quentin State Prison, the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said in a statement. The cause of death will be determined by the Marin County coroner.
The key question here is: who’s going to play me?The Mrs has just shown me this pic and said who's this? .. she already knew, I instantly said "Dennis Nilsen" .. David Tennent looks uncannily like Dennis Nilsen .. 10 out of 10 to the make up and wardrobe departments ..
Coming to ITV... new three-part drama, Des, starring David Tennant as serial killer Dennis Nilsen. Daniel Mays and Jason Watkins also star.

The ones that have been caught, anyway...Study shows that most serial killers are Taurus. Sounds like a load of bull.
A pretty crowded table, sadly. Details of his crimes are particularly disgusting but we only know about them because the arrogant sods taped what they were doing. There'd be plenty others who have taken equal pleasure in causing unspeakable pain through history, not to mention those responsible at second hand like Hitler and Himmler.If there is a Hell, this piece of shit certainly deserves his seat at the table of honour there...

Great documentary, but the Texas Rangers don't come out of it looking good.The Confession Killer: documentary series about Henry Lee Lucas on Netflix which questions the methods used to get his confessions. Far from murdering hundreds of people it suggests he probably only killed his own mother. Fascinating stuff. He sold a pile of goods to police, sheriffs and Texas Rangers but they also fed him information, in some cases deliberately.
Heh I don't think all in attendance caught Bong's reference. Marty did. Of course.Is Ed Gein getting his posthumous Oscar for services to cinema tonight..? It's long overdue!
Could you supply the pages?I've been reading Debbie Harry's autobiography, and wondering if she would mention Ted Bundy, re: that urban myth she was almost abducted by him in NYC one night in the 1970s. Well guess what, she does, and she doesn't think it was an urban myth, she's standing by her story! She says it has been debunked because Bundy was supposedly in Florida at the time, but she goes into some detail about the incident, including his customised car, and concludes it really happened. So the ball's in your court, sceptics.
