Fishface | 11670 comments Feel free to add your own as you find them. I was looking for something else and found this snap of Gary Taylor, a serial killer who left two women he'd tortured to death buried at his place in Onsted, Michigan. Note the questionable haircut and supremely dorky expression:



Here he is again with Shirley Ann Eland, one of his shooting victims:

K.A. Krisko (kakrisko) | 1260 comments Is he a really big guy wearing a really weird costume or a really skinny guy sitting on a really weird chair?


message 3: by Fishface (new)

Fishface | 11670 comments Maybe both.

People should please feel free to add their own photo finds. Do not be afraid to post anything unflattering.

Mugshot of Devin Howell showing him with weird glowing white eyebrows -- this must have been his Oompah Loompah fashion phase.

Fishface | 11670 comments A particularly absurd candid photo of Frank Spisak, the longest-surviving inmate of Ohio's Death Row before his execution date finally rolled around. But at least he had a sense of style:

Fishface | 11670 comments Dahmer with his face blacked out in this group photo shot because he was not really a member of the National Honor Society -- he just sneaked into the picture.

Fishface | 11670 comments My favorite photo of Jeff Dahmer. You can almost hear him saying 'THMAAAA!"

Fishface | 11670 comments Ed Kemper hanging with his mindhunting home skillets, Bob Ressler (L) and John Douglas (R). Ed's expression could mean an imminent sneeze, or he might be in dire need of a Chap Stik.

Fishface | 11670 comments Good God, man! A rainbow bow tie with a striped shirt?



Oh, wait, you're a serial killer? Nemmine, g'head and wear that outfit to court for all I care.

When he was bad he was horrid.

Where do we start? The tats? The Amish Outlaw beard? The fact that he wears a beard with his head shaved?

Fishface | 11670 comments Criminals With Bad Hair: David Turpin


He looked almost as bad after he got a haircut at what I assume was the jailhouse barbershop:

David, L, and his wife Louise, R


Louise as a youngster (L) growing up in conditions very similar to those she put her own kids through later on. And look at the hair on that guy who is almost certainly her brother. It's as if she needed to keep bad hair in the bloodline and married David Turpin for that reason, because he had what it took to carry on the tradition!

Frazier's wife, who may or may not have seen her husband's rampage coming


The 2 surviving children of the Ohta family killed by Frazier. One of the girls, named Tauren (I don't know which of these photos is of her), hanged herself at 25, unable to bear losing so many members of her family. She was followed 2 years after that by her paternal grandmother, a nursing-home patient who also hanged herself.

Edit: FOUND IT. Tauren is on the L; her sister Lark is on the R.

Clarnell Strandberg


Sally was Clarnell's best friend and acted as a de facto aunt to Clarnell's son, Edward Emil Kemper III, before he killed them both.

Fishface | 11670 comments Well, if you start with questionable genetics, add poor dental hygiene, stir in some really horrid decision-making associated with use of street drugs, whip it all to a froth with distorted body image and add a lousy hairdresser as the cherry on top, well...

I just finished the book about these two yay-hoos and got a chuckle when the author described the first picture as a Captain Kangaroo haircut.
