He was Albert Fish born in the Washington DC area in 1870 to a father who was 43 years older than his mother and was a boat captain who would die while Albert was young and would see him sent to an orphanage where his dark sexual perversions would begin in his early life as he would learn to enjoy the beatings he received for his bad behavior.
His mother would finally take him back after getting herself stabilized but the damage was done .
and she forced him into a marriage which did not last which she hoped would dissuade his sexual proclivity's
Thou he had 6 children he never abused them but any one else's child was open game
He was mentally evaluated several times and found to have psychiatric problems but was released every time.
He was a very disturbed individual who made his money as a traveling painter and apparently as a male prostitute at times and his travels took him to many states including Pa. where he prowled for mentally ill and African American children who he thought authorities would be less than enthusiastic to investigate claims made by them or if they disappeared,.
He was eventually caught and convicted and executed in the electric chair in Sing Sing prison in NYC in January of 1936 for the murder and disembowelment of a 12 year old Grace Budd whose family allowed him to take her to a birthday party.
How such a sick individual could go on and do what he did for so long even back then is pretty incredible but his constant travels is what kept authorities from figuring out what was going on.
