The Butchers : Casebook of Macabre Crimes and Forensic Detection, Paperback Book

The Butchers : Casebook of Macabre Crimes and Forensic Detection Paperback


THE BUTCHERS covers more than thirty cases, from Catherine Hayes who set a trend in Dismemberment in 1726 when she hacked off her husbands head and tossed it into the Thames, to Dennis Nilson who was doing much the same to his victims in 1983; from Marcel Petiot's quicklime pits in Occupied Paris, to New York's infamous Albert 'The Cannibal' Fish.

However meticulous and ingenious, none of them got away with murder! and, as this fascinating book shows, only painstaking investigation and forensics led to the final unmasking of the sadists and psychotics who sought such bloody concealment of their crimes
