Hello and welcome to Killer Central.com
My name is Garry and this website is a personal project which I have been wanting to do for years.
I have long had a fascination in serious crime and specifically multiple murder and judging by the amount of books, films and documentaries on the subject, so do many millions of others. My interest hasn’t just stemmed from a 39-year career in law enforcement, although that has given me certain insights into the types of people and the crimes they are involved in, I never cease to be amazed at how someone can come so far ‘off the rails’ as to commit the most heinous acts.
I will say at the outset that I have never been a detective and my role has never been to investigate serious crime, although I may have been at the scenes of many. As far as I am aware, I only ever came face to face with one serial killer, being one of several officers responsible for guarding, feeding and exercising one during a prolonged trial when he was held in police cells. I expected to be in the presence of a monster, and to an extent I was, however, what struck me was the ‘ordinariness’ of a man who laughed, cracked jokes, played cards, our only outward differences being which side of the bars we sat.
This site is intended as an information resource for those with similar interests to me. It is not intended to glorify any of the people or acts depicted.
The information is gleaned from various sources, books, films, magazines, documentaries, other websites. It is not meant to be definitive and I consider it merely a work in progress.
If you spot any errors, or have any suggestions for content, or indeed, wish to help me in the project, please get in touch via my contact page.
