21 Gruesome Serial Killers You May Not Have Heard Of — But You’ll Never Forget

“The reason this guy bothers me so much is a very personal one. I grew up in the Buffalo suburbs hearing about this guy from time to time, and his reputation. People being in fear, especially given how bike paths were just kinda everywhere. Hell I used to go riding up one all the time as it was right behind my house. In 2005 my family moved to Florida and a year later the news broke of it being Sanchez. My family couldn’t believe it. Why? Because for the first five years of my life, I lived right up the road from him on Allendale road at the very end of the street. Sanchez would host block parties and my family would attend them, myself included. I don’t really remember him, but the simple fact that he was doing this shit on the side while entertaining a seemingly normal life really bothers me. The man had committed some of the worst atrocities you could imagine and was having us over for a regular summer shindig. It gets even crazier with stories of people on the road working with him or my family’s friends from the area also having connections to him.

I’ve read plenty of deranged and fucked up stories of all kinds of serial killers but nothing really seemed to unsettle and deeply bother me as much as knowing there was a monster living just a few houses down from me when I was a kid.” — TheMaverickGirl Thought Catalog Logo Mark
