Ed Kemper is a sadistic necrophiliac and psycho. Kemper had death fantasies since early in his childhood. Ed liked decapitating his sisters' dolls and playing gas chamber. Ed also enjoyed killing, torturing, and mutilating animals.
In 1963, at the age of 15, Kemper killed his grandparents, just to see how it would feel. Ed was committed to a maximum security mental hospital in 1963, but was released six years later. When he got out he had physically changed. He had grown to 6'9" and weighed 300 pounds. Just his appearance frightened people.
Between the years 1971 and 1973, Kemper racked up six victims, all hitchhiking women students. He killed, decapitated, and dissected the victims, then proceeded to rape their corpses.
Then he decided to go to the root of the problem. On Easter weekend, 1973, he hammered in his mother's skull, then proceeded to decapitate her, rape her corpse, and jam her severed larynx down the garbage disposal. He propped her head on the mantle for use as a dart board. But Ed wasn't finished yet. He then phoned his mother's friend, invited her to a surprise dinner. When she arrived, he clubbed her over the head, strangled and decapitated her.
That same weekend, on Easter Sunday, he got in his car and started driving, no where in particular. Kemper then called the police and confessed the have committed these murders. No one at the police station believed him, because he was friends with everyone there, and they never pictured him as the type to commit these crimes. Finally, when Ed proved to know information about the murders that only the killer would know, they picked him up and arrested him.
Kemper admitted to have kept hair, teeth, and skin of some victims as trophies. He also admitted to have practiced cannibalism, said he sliced some flesh off two victim's legs, and cooked it in a macaroni casserole. When he was asked what punishment would fit the crimes he committed, he said "death by torture." Instead, he was sentenced to life in prison, and is currently serving his sentence in Vacaville Prison.
