1. “I was in the dorm building over from a guy who chopped up his parents with an axe.”

I was in the dorm building over from a guy who chopped up his parents with an axe. He came back to school like nothing had happened before being arrested.

He was in a poker group I frequented so we met several times. Never really noticed anything out of the ordinary with him.

His frat brothers all said he seemed off and was creepy but they only said that after he killed his folks and the story was getting media attention.

This is him.

2. “He killed his wife and himself after eating his cat.”

When I was growing up in suburbia, we lived next to a beekeeper. This was all well and good, except for the fact that he would always try to offer to pack any cuts or broken bones or really any injuries anyone suffered with his bees. Other than that, he was a fairly normal guy, then he killed his wife and himself after eating his cat.

3. “When I was very young, someone who lived down the street stabbed two of his daughters to death.”

When I was very young, someone who lived down the street stabbed two of his daughters to death. He had gotten very depressed and planned to kill his whole family, commit suicide, and meet them in heaven. He snapped out of it after killing his two daughters, called the police, and sat in his yard until the police arrived and arrested him. I didn’t know him or his family, but, as far as I know, no one suspected him, as he acted normal until he was ready to kill his family. He’s currently in prison and is apparently much better now that he’s been treated. In fact, his wife has forgiven him and wants to get back together, although I’m not sure his other children forgive him.
