Book excerpt: Even the coldest-blooded killer was once a child. Richard Trenton Chase started life without a hitch. Popular and well-liked, his future looked bright as the Cali sun... but those around knew nothing of the dark truths that he fostered. His parents' marriage was rapidly falling apart, and soon he began to suffer from strange health problems. Rapidly declining, he decided there was only one solution... ... and that was blood. Richard's childhood fascination with death became a full-blown psychotic obsession, and the fear of losing his blood drove him to butcher and consume animals. In time, however, this wasn't enough, and Richard turned to larger game. The Vampire of Sacramento became one of California's most notorious serial killers, and Chase's crimes still haunt law enforcement to this day. But how did it happen? And could these crimes have somehow been prevented, sparing lives and untold sorrow? Draw your own conclusions as the judge of this disturbed young mind. Was Richard Chase an evil soul or simply sick and lost? CAUTION: True Crime Explicit is a series that contains descriptive accounts of abuse and violence.

Book excerpt: The “fast-paced” inside story of the manhunt for bloodsucking serial killer Richard Chase (Publishers Weekly). Written by the case’s lead homicide detective, this gripping true crime account details the killing spree of one of California’s most gruesome murderers: Richard Chase, aka “the Vampire of Sacramento.” In January 1978, Sacramento police found the corpse of Teresa Wallin, a loving wife and soon-to-be mother. Veteran detective Lt. Ray Biondi immediately knew the case would be unlike anything he had ever seen before. The victim’s body was deliberately disfigured in nightmarish ways, and evidence suggested the culprit had collected large volumes of her blood. In less than a month, a two-year-old boy was missing, and two men, another woman, and a five-year-old child dead, their bodies contorted, like Wallin’s, to fulfill the killer’s demented sexual desires, and—most disturbingly—his taste for human blood. Previously published as The Dracula Killer, A Thirst for Blood is a riveting report of the investigation, from eyewitness testimonies to the discovery of the crime scenes to Chase’s interrogation. Lieutenant Biondi and his coauthor, Walt Hecox, provide an unflinching look at the “vampire killer” and the cunning police work that finally put an end to his reign of terror. The inspiration for Investigation Discovery’s Lore: Deadly Obsession and episodes of CSI and Criminal Minds, Chase’s crimes continue to haunt the world generations later.

Book excerpt: Vampires aren't real. But at one point in the 70s, in California, a man who had a penchant for drinking human blood and killing his victims terrorized the city of Sacramento. Here is his story. Richard Trenton Chase Jr., otherwise known as the Sacramento Vampire, terrorized California during the 1970s. He brutalized, killed, and even ate his victims. But what stood out most in the public's imagination was his penchant for drinking their blood, like a modern-day vampire. The truth is, Chase was a severely disturbed individual. Some killers are cold-blooded monsters, some simply have terrible impulse control-but others are completely deranged. Chase fits into that category.Since he was diagnosed with severe mental illness, it remains debatable how cognizant-and how culpable-Chase was of what he was doing.Prosecutors later highlighted several aspects of Chase's assaults which they believed showed that he was aware of the gravity of his actions, and should therefore be held accountable. His defense attorneys, on the other hand, tried to demonstrate that Chase was a man so removed from reality that he should be considered not guilty by reason of insanity.At any rate, whatever might have been going on in the mind of Richard Chase Jr., his victims were real, and the horrors he inflicted on them were very real as well. The deeds of Richard Chase Jr. most certainly make for a frightening, sad, and twisted tale. This book documents this disturbed man's troubled life, his horrific rampage, and his subsequent demise in full.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Albert Fish held the genuine belief that the murders he committed were upon instruction from God. Peter Stumpp, who started practising the "wicked arts from twelve years of age", was convinced he was a werewolf. There are many more murderous individuals like them. Supernatural Serial Killers explores the association between serial killers and the supernatural. The crimes committed by these men and women usually involved sexual deviance, cannibalism and violence toward children. In sixteenth century Europe, the problem became so significant that 'Werewolf Witch Trials' were conducted - many have no idea that it was possible to be tried and convicted for the crime of being a Werewolf, but Lycanthropy was a serious and major social concern in the 1500s. In this book, approximately twenty supernatural serial killers are discussed, including their background, crimes, trials and defences.
