Albert Fish

“Child rapist and cannibal. Said to have raped a child in every state. He chose mentally handicapped or African-American children, then would rape, torture, murder and sometimes eat them. He encouraged his own children to spank him with a paddle studded with nails. He was an extreme sadist, and when he died, was found to have 29 needles pushed into his groin and pelvic area.

He wrote to the parents of one of his victims, saying that he:

‘Took them to his home stripped them naked tied them in a closet then burned everything they had on. Several times every day and night he spanked them – tortured them – to make their meat good and tender. First he killed the 11 yr old boy, because he had the fattest ass and of course the most meat on it. Every part of his body was cooked and eaten except Head – bones and guts. He was Roasted in the oven, (all of his ass) boiled, broiled, fried, stewed.'” — AwfulLandlord
