Killers, particularly serial killers, are often fond of their trophies. Sometimes, it’s a body part, a piece of clothing, or personal items belonging to the victim. That’s bizarrely creepy enough. But what if they take “trophy” pictures of their distressed victims, sometimes bound and gagged with terror in their eyes? The advent of Polaroid cameras in the 1950’s and 1960’s meant that killers had a way of building their “collection” and maintaining that all-important anonymity. Snap, wait a minute or two, and with a click and a whir, the camera produces a print. And these days? Cellphones provide killers with a handy way of taking those compelling images and, if things get too hot, making them disappear again. Although, as we will see, “deleting” is not the same as “destroying.” The cellphone and social media have seen the advent of a truly horrific phenomena—the murder video. So, here are 15 images of terror, torture, death, and ego captured by killers. Some go back to the 1950’s or 1960’s. Some are as current as today. All are chilling.
15. 1 Lunatic, 1 Ice Pick
Born Eric Newman, Luka Magnotta was fond of doing videos of himself torturing kittens and getting plastic surgery. By the time he was 21, he was making “adult” videos and working as a male escort. Then, in May of 2012, it turned nasty. Around May 18th, Magnotta filmed a video of a drugged man sleeping. He was tied to a bed and Magnotta is straddling him. Then he reaches for an electric saw. Apparently, that one got away. But a week later, Magnotta picks up Chinese exchange student, Lin Jun, takes him back to his place, drugs him, ties him to a bed, and then, in a frenzied attack, stabs him with an ice pick some 100 times while filming a video. He then dismembers him, does a spot of necrophilia, and, some say, goes in for a bit of cannibalism. The 11-minute video, 1 Lunatic, 1 Ice Pick was posted on Bestgore.com. No word on who the one that got away is. Magnotta was banged up for life.
14. Live On Facebook
The picture of an elderly man in a blue plaid shirt was allegedly taken by Steve Stephens on Easter Sunday, April 26, 2017. It was Easter Sunday on a nice Cleveland, Ohio Spring day and Robert Godwin, Sr. and his cat hat were out for a stroll. A car pulled up to the curb near where Godwin was walking. The driver, said to be Steve Stephens, tells Godwin to say the name of a woman who is believed to be Stephens’ estranged girlfriend. Then, he pulls out a gun. The elderly Godwin repeatedly tells the younger man he does not know the woman. Then Godwin crumples to the ground after having been shot in the head and mortally wounded. Then, horror of horrors, Stephen posts the video of the murder to Facebook Live and flees. The video is taken down…like really fast. 48 hours later, Stephens shoots himself in the head and dies.
