Crime Scene: True Stories of Crime and Detection

gary-c-king-book-coverBizarre, compelling and authentic true crime stories of murder and mayhem. In these pages you will find a story about serial murder and cannibalism, a celebrity murder, torture murders, crimes of passion, among many others—chilling crimes that could only be perpetrated by the twisted minds and gruesome obsessions of coldblooded killers, the stuff that horror movies and novels are made of, brought to you from the vault of bestselling true crime author and serial killer expert Gary C. King.


Tortured by the Sadist in the Press Box—The two missing girls were dead. Clues were scarce for Oregon investigators when one of the girls turned up brutally killed at a college football field. When they find the second body in a ravine, the case breaks wide open.


The Piece of Meat was Pamela’s Thigh—One official stated that the crime scene “…was more like a slaughterhouse, an unparalleled ritualistic killing involving blood, guts, and gore.” It was also pointed out that the victim’s breast was so mutilated by human teeth marks that it could not be immediately recognized as a breast. Even more shocking than the grim discovery of Pamela’s thigh were the bizarre events leading up to the horrible mutilation.


The Riddle of the Missing Sea Dog—If the old salt harbored ideas about being buried at sea, they were dashed when his enemies closed in on him with a broadax, a butcher knife, and possibly a meat grinder. Not even a piece of the victim has ever been found.true-murder


Pretty Tourists’ Trek to Torture—The victims, two pretty West German college students, were doing what many Europeans had done before: touring the United States, hitchhiking most of the way. But unlike other travelers, they weren’t as savvy about the dangers of getting into cars with strange drivers. And both paid for their inexperience—with their lives!


A Rage to Destroy the Pristine Screen Beauty?—Stardom was within reach for actress Rebecca Schaeffer. Her credits were piling up. But it all ended with the suddenness of a shot. Now, in her cold grave, she is one more celebrity victim of a fan whose outpourings of love suddenly turned sour.


jeffery-d-imageJeffrey Dahmer: The Butcher of Milwaukee’s Human Slaughterhouse—Unspeakable doesn’t begin to describe the horror that went on in apartment 213. Madness, mayhem and man-eating, here are some of the facts as alleged by the killer himself: He picked up men, drugged them, then ate them—some limb by limb, others only their genitals. And when police found him out, they found nothing in the fridge, save a couple of heads and spices. Dahmer was “an aberration, even of the abnormal. His behavior goes one step beyond. Each element of the case takes you one step further into the bizarre.”

Blood Lust: Portrait of a Serial Killer


gary-c-king-coverIn this riveting true crime book, "The Man Who Loved to Kill Women"-- Dayton Leroy Rogers, was known in Portland, Oregon as a respected businessman and devoted husband and father. But at night he abducted women, forced them into sadistic bondage games, and thrilled in their pain, terror and mutilation. His murderous spree was stopped only after, in plain view, he slashed to death his final victim...and when a hunter accidentally stumbled onto the burial grounds of seven other women Rogers had killed one-by-one in the depths of the Molalla Forest did police realize they were dealing with a serial killer whose bloodlust knew no bounds. This is the shocking true story of the horrifying crimes, capture, and conviction of Dayton Leroy Rogers, Oregon's mild-mannered businessman by day--vicious serial killer by night.
