I heard a report that Nilsen had died but thought they meant Harry, who dies a few years back, was right confused for a while.

Default Cannibals

I can cope with many details regarding serial killers, but cannibals, nope. Stets my teeth on edge.

Hello Bill.

Where's that quote from Prof David Wilson in your signature come from? Is it from a book he wrote or something?

Did a search for Prof. David Wilson:

https://www.google.com/search?client... uOlzhWOnc%3D

He has written quite a lot of books on serial killers and prisons, and might be an interesting read.

I know who Wilson is, but I was curious as to where that quote came from.

David Wilson quoting Soren Kierkegaard.
David Wilson also said, “... no such thing as coincidence when you're dealing with a serial killer" I believe that was loosely based on Sherlock Holmes.
