Less then a month passed before Kemper struck again. This time, it was two more hitchhikers, Rosalind Thorpe and Alice Lin. They hardly had time to get into the car before he shot them both dead. He put both bodies in the trunk and left them there while he went to have dinner with his mother, returning to the car afterwards to decapitate them, then taking Lin's headless corpse inside to rape. Kemper's madness was now a long way out of control. At this point he apparently contemplated trying to murder everyone on his block.
MOTHER'S DEATH The event that seems to have tipped the shy, withdrawn Joachim Kroll into madness was the death of his mother in January 1955. Just three weeks later, on 8 February, Kroll killed for the first time, raping and stabbing to death nineteen-year-old Irmgard Srehl in a barn near the town of Lüdinghausen. Just how many people he went on to kill over the next two decades will never be known. The only murders that can be traced to him are those he confessed to after his eventual arrest, and he was not sure that he remembered all of them.
These are the murderers who baffle and terrify us, precisely because they seem so ordinary and so much – on the surface – 'just like us'. However, when they are finally caught they are revealed to have tortured and killed a string of innocent victims, often in the most gruesome ways imaginable. THE 'ORDINARY' KILLER Our list of serial killers contains many apparently ordinary people. Ted Bundy, for example, was an attractive, self-confident man who escaped the law for many years precisely because he seemed so unlike the accepted image of a lonely, psychotic killer.
