Evil serial killer known as the Brooklyn Vampire who kidnapped children and cut them up and ATE them

He is arguably the most depraved serial killer in the annals of American crime, a sadist, paedophile, and cannibal who by his own estimation killed as many as 100 children over a murderous career spanning more than two decades.

He was also a reprobate of quite staggering proportions, who practiced so many perversions that his court-appointed psychiatrist called him “the most polymorphous pervert I have ever known.”

The newspapers of the day called him the Gray Man, the Brooklyn Vampire, or the Werewolf of Wisteria.

His real name was Albert Fish.

On Monday, May 28, 1928, Delia Budd answered a knock on her apartment door and found a frail old man standing on the threshold.
