Edmund Kemper

Edmund Kemper was destined to become what he became. He grew up in a home where his mother (notice a trend?) ridiculed him for his physical appearence and personality. As a natural reaction to the way he was treated, he grew to hate his mother and that hate carried over to women in general.

While in grade school, he began to show odd behavior. While most boys his age were playing cowboys and indians, Ed pretended that he was being executed via the gas chamber. In 2nd grade he developed a crush on his teacher. When he was asked why he didn’t kiss her, the young boy explained he’d have to kill her first in order to kiss her. All this before he ever hit his teens.

In 1963, at the age of 15, Ed was sent to live with his grandparents in North Fork, California. In August, for no real reason, he shot and killed his grandmother as she sat at the kitchen table. After he shot her, he then stabbed her and put her body in the bedroom. When his grandfather returned, Kemper shot him to death as he entered the house. After the killings, he called his mother and explained what he did. He then sat and waited for the police to arrive. When asked why he did it, he explained that “I just wondered how it would feel to kill Grandma.”

He was then committed to the Atascadero State Hospital where he was diagnosed as a schizophrenic. There he spent his time listening to the stories of his fellow patients who were serial rapists. This caused his fanaties to become even more violent. In order to get parole, he put on an act of bein “cured.” He of course hid his violent fantasies from his doctors and after 5 years he was released.

After his release he had no treatment. He was examined by the state board and they deemed him cured and sealed his juvenile record. Little did they know that inside the truck of his car was the head of 15 year old hitchhiker who he had killed, raped and dismembered the day before.

She wasn’t his first victims after being rehabilitaed. His first victims were roommates from Fresno State. He had picked them up in May and drove them to a secluded area. Once there, he stabbed them to death and placed them in the truck of his car. Once he returned home, he snuck the bodies into his bedroom where he took pictures of them and then had sex with the bodies. When he was done, he burried the bodies and tossed the heads into a ravine.

Six more women would fall victim to Kemper. Not only did he rape the dead, but he would include them in meals as well. He claimed to have made a casserole with one of the victims. He’d keep hair, teeth and patches of skin as trophies.

The most disgusting act was yet to come. On the day before Easter in 1973, Kemper snuck into his mothers home. Using a knife and hammer, he smashed her skull in and slit her throat. He beheaded her as well and then raped the corpse. He then placed the head on the mantel, using it as a dart board. Later that evening he invited over his mothers best friend. When she arrived, she met the same fate.

After fleeing to Colorado, he realized he had no where to go. He called the police and waited for them to arrive at the phone booth he used. Once in custody, Kemper offered up a full, detailed confession of his crimes. He was convicted of 8 counts of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

  1. does it make me sound crazy to say I like your blog? I’ve been through here via Blogmad several times & always am interested in your posts, but haven’t commented.
    see ya!

  2. Fascinating ano

  3. There has to be some inborn gene in these people!

  4. i love ed kemper, i am totally amazed by him. he had a shitty upbringing and maybe if it was a different way he wouldn’t have turned out the way he did.

  5. well, i am just wondering why the most horrible serial killers of all times have german names?, it’s kinda scary isn’t it…especially when you are COMPELLED to live in germany!! This supports fully the criminal gene theory :O !

  6. This is one wierd son of a bitch that should of been the victim of another serial killer. They should all die and I feel sorry for all of the victims,unless they are gay.

  7. This guy has all the basics of becoming what he is. His own mother would make fun of him and he got shit in school, and isolated himself from others. This guy has some really twisted issues. At least he had the common sense to turn himself in, but I still feel for his victims.

  8. Edmund and I are about the same age, I wrote to him but he hasn’t replied. I thought our comparative experiences of the times might entice his intellectual side. His psychological profile is fascinating. It seems he has fallen into a black hole. There is no recent information on him to be found….yet. If anyone can share more up-to-date info, I’d be pleased to research it.

  9. u guys r all fags. edmudnd was a horrible guy n i dont understand y u would agree w/ what he did
    this is one sick society we live in…

  10. i dont care how badly his mother treated him. mine treated me badly too. do you see me going out and killing people??? I think not. This guy should be executed!

    • I agree! My mother physically abused me and my sibling everyday since we were toddlers and verbally harassed and still does In our adulthood! We’ve got our own issues but we don’t use that as a stupid excuse to kill and rape people like some evil sicko! Edmund is not intelligent he’s just a big fat manipulative oaf who likes to hear his fat self talk too much. Boohoo his mom made fun of him. If he grew up with mine he wouldn’t even have the chance to carry out his sick shit!

  11. I think people like Ed Kemper, are just products of society, in the same way as anyone is, if you look at society, it is quite twisted.

  12. What an asshole
