Serial Killer Bedtime Stories: Karl Denke

There is a lot of room at the inn in tonight's serial killer bedtime story about Karl Denke.

A German innkeeper in Silesia with a taste for the "long pig," Denke butchered at least thirty of his lodgers and kept their pickled remains in the basement of his inn. An avid church-goer who was known locally as "Papa," Karl especialized in slaying beggars, tramps and journeymen who would not be missed. When he was arrested in 1924 he told police that for the past three years he had eaten only sausages made of human flesh.

Sweet dreams, and may you forever remain Crazy 4 Crazies.
