From the outside, Robert Hansen looked harmless. With his black horn rim glasses, a shabby haircut, and an awkward smile, he fit most people’s stereotype of a nerd. He was a baker and a family man, but behind the normal facade lurked a serial killer who liked to torture and rape women before hunting and killing them like wild game.

The Black Monarch Hotel website speaks of bar fights gone wrong and the town of Victor hosting countless miners during the gold rush in the late 1800s; there was even a fire that swept away the entire city in 1899. It stands to reason that some hardships befell guests of the Monarch brothel, saloon, and casino during its heyday, leaving their spirits to roam the halls.

MMNster Book Chats: The Phantom Prince

In 2018 I read The Stranger Beside Me for the first time, and prior to reading it I knew little about Ted Bundy. However, finishing it sent me into a rabbit hole of searching for more information about the survivors, victims, and other people in his personal life. I enjoyed The Stranger Beside Me because it was written from a perspective of a coworker and friend, this element is what sets this book apart from other true crime books in my opinion. Finding out that Ted’s long term girlfriend, Liz Kendall, had written a book called The Phantom Prince about her own experience was exactly the news I had wanted, another perspective of someone close.

What’s the deal with brain injuries in serial killers?

Bookmark(1)

No account yet? Register

It is a well-known fact amongst true crime enthusiasts that head injuries are disproportionately common in serial killers. Whether we’re talking Jerry Brudos, Richard Ramirez (who suffered two) or David “Son of Sam” Berkowitz (who suffered three!), it seems like most serial killers were hit on the head at some point in their life. Truth is, brain injuries are common in criminals, more than they are in the general population. But why is that? And do all brain injuries lead to criminal behaviour? Will your cousin Timmy, who dove into an empty swimming pool, kill his dog? As both a true crime fanatic and someone who happens to study the link between brain and behaviour, I’m going to attempt to provide brief answers to those questions (except for that last one, only time will tell – sorry).

The Truth in Horror Films

What makes horror truly effective is its credibility and plausibility, hence why we gravitate towards true crime and the grisliest murder stories to ever grace the front page of any major publication. We crave what is tangible, and if a film is based on true events, it resonates with us longer since it can be documented and researched to great lengths, all based on factual and empirical evidence. These stories do not originate from a single writer’s mind, but rather from a collective consciousness based in a dark, grim reality.
