Abbye learned to speak Croatian at a young age with her step-grandfather who took a boat across the sea to come to the United States when he was fourteen years old. Her sense of family and missing the old times with her grandfather prompted her to write her first book about a Croatian motorcycle club in the US.

#AtoZChallenge #Theme #SerialKillers H

Henry Lee Lucas

He began his life in the same way as most serial killers begin. He was horribly abused as a child along with his fetish for bestiality and torturing animals in his teens. He even engaged in incest with his half brother. All these terrible acts committed only in his early teenage years to say the least.
Henry claims that his first murder was at the age of fourteen where he kidnapped a seventeen year old girl from a bus stop. 
Lucas killed his mother that year in a blind rage after a family dispute. She died fifty hours later of the wounds that she received. He was found and arrested in Toledo, Ohio where he was sentenced to 20-40 years in Southern Michigan State Prison for second degree murder.
Over crowding of the jail forced his release in 1970. Henry claims he killed two women soon after.
Lucas was credited for 20 murders in California, Michigan, Texas and Maryland. He confessed to 600 “free lunches”? though.

  1. One of his partners escaped from prison in Texas during the late 80s or early 90s, its was pretty scary for the people until he was caught.

    1. It still amazes me how people manage to escape a prison.

  2. I hadn't heard of this guy. It's kind of sad, the ones who were abused as kids and grow up to abuse and kill others.
