Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been intrigued by true crime stories since I read "In Cold Blood" as a teenager. My crime library now stuffs two 8-foot bookcases. The saying that "truth is stranger than fiction" has proven to be factual. The vagaries of human nature defy even the most talented mystery fiction writer. Within the past few years, I've embarked on a quest to find as many famous crime locations and graves as I can, sometimes building entire vacations around them. I now have eight large photo albums filled with crime-related sites from coast to coast. My friends and family think I'm a little nutty, and maybe I am. But, for someone like me, so harmless that I capture moths that fly in the house and set them free outside, the notion that there are human beings who can plot to kill innocent people without remorse is endlessly fascinating. I enjoy contributing to Findagrave and will continue to do so, as long as there are crimes to explore. With the way the world is, I doubt I'll ever run low of material. ** ALERT!! ** I have just had a book published that will be released on 10/1/2013! It's called, "The Crime Buff's Guide To Outlaw Pennsylvania." I've written it in conjunction with best-selling true crime author, Ron Franscell. It's available now for pre-order on Amazon, B&N, and most other book-selling websites.

James Eugene Glass
Thanks for the pics. The grave of James Eugene Glass, it shows 1956-1971. But he died already in 1970. So is his one ?

Black Dahlia
Love your contributions.
Was wondering where the memorial marker for the Black Dahlia that you added to her memorial was located?
Are you working on Gacy's unidentified victims?

Baulch Brothers
I was wondering if you could find out the birthdays or at least the birth month of the Baulch brothers (Billy Gene and Michael Anthony) so I can have a memorial Mass for both of them. Thank you. Elaine

Billy and Tony Baulch
I would so contribute for a grave marker for Billy and Tony...I hope they both can finally rest in peace now that they are truly is hard to find in Woodlawn, and people are not exactly excited to direct one to where they are :(

RE: Herman Webster Mudgett
Yeah I thought Scott Peterson just killed his wife? I am more talking about the serial killers like Gacy Dahmer Barkowitz.

Or the seriel Killer Leatherface but his crimes were not as numerous so much as how he used womans skin as masks and other people.

do you think leather face Geins was raped by his mom or she allowed a man to rape him?

chilling to talk about too

RE: Herman Webster Mudgett

But the bad seeds are what make good stories!

What publicity and if there is any its only important to the people it affects the next generation doesnt know anything about it. Plus there still to this day trying to figure out who John Wayne Gacy victims are.

Oh there is?

why are they doing inaccuracies?
