Guess the Real Life Monsters

What real life serial murderer wrote this letter?

**Warning: Violence towards children**

On Sunday June the 3, 1928 I called on you at 406 W 15 St. Brought you pot cheese—strawberries. We had lunch. Grace sat in my lap and kissed me. I made up my mind to eat her. On the pretense of taking her to a party. You said yes she could go. I took her to an empty house in Westchester I had already picked out. When we got there, I told her to remain outside. She picked wildflowers. I went upstairs and stripped all my clothes off. I knew if I did not I would get her blood on them. When all was ready I went to the window and called her. Then I hid in a closet until she was in the room. When she saw me all naked she began to cry and tried to run down the stairs. I grabbed her and she said she would tell her mamma. First I stripped her naked. How she did kick — bite and scratch. I choked her to death, then cut her in small pieces so I could take my meat to my rooms. Cook and eat it. How sweet and tender her little ass was roasted in the oven. It took me 9 days to eat her entire body. She died a virgin.

  1. I just looked this up and read the rest of the letter re: cannibalism in China (due to famine). This bit jumped out:

    A boy or girl’s behind which is the sweetest part of the body and sold as veal cutlet brought the highest price.

    OK … when I was little, maybe 7 or 8, I had a dream that my mother sent me to the store to get a rump roast (I must have heard her use the term earlier that day). She gave me money and I went to the store, but I spent the money on candy and didn’t have enough to buy the meat, so I had the butcher cut off a butt cheek and wrap it up. It didn’t hurt, and my mom got her rump roast!
