Transcript of Edmund Kemper
Born in California On August 27, 1964, Kemper's grandmother was sitting at the kitchen table working on her latest children's book when she and Kemper began arguing. Eventually Kemper shot her in the head. Later that day he killed his grandfather because he knew he would be angry. Between May 1972 and February 1973, Kemper embarked on a spree of murders, picking up six female students hitchhiking, taking them to isolated rural areas and killing them. He would stab, shoot or smother the victims and afterwards take them back to his apartment where he would have sex with their decapitated heads and bodies and then dissect them. On May 7, 1972, Kemper was driving when he picked up two 18-year-old hitchhiking After a one-hour journey, he drove to a secluded, wooded area.. There, he smothered them to death before fatally stabbing them On January 7, 1973, Kemper was driving around a College campus, where he picked up 19-year-old student Cindy Schall. He stopped his car in a secluded, wooded area, where he fatally shot her with a .22 caliber pistol. He placed her body in the trunk of his car and drove back to his mother's house, where he dissected her in a bathtub. On Good Friday of 1973 , Kemper battered his sleeping mother to death with a claw hammer. He then decapitated her and used her severed head for oral sex before finally using it as a dart board. He also cut out her vocal cords, then put them in the garbage disposal. The garbage disposal could not break down the tough vocal cord tissue and ejected the tissue back up into the sink. "That seemed appropriate," he said after his arrest,"as much as she'd screamed and yelled at me over so many years." He then invited his mother's best friend, 59-year-old Sally Hallett, over to the house. When she entered the house, he strangled her to death, and then Kemper left the scene of his final crimes. At his trial he pleaded "not guilty" by reason of insanity. He was found guilty in November 1973 of eight counts of murder. He asked for the death penalty, but with capital punishment suspended at that time, he instead received life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. How did forensic science help capture the criminal? - Fingerprints are used to help find identification.
- A method of testing blood stains is used to help find the criminal.
