Albert- 31-33 years of age Timeline of Events Why? Overcomed by
his desires & fears Insanity by his mental illness: 'sociopathic' Wanted fame Created By:

Ahmad Nabi-Bidhendi Yes, I do believe that he is of a high 'dangerousness' to women and should not be realeased because: Of his Insanity due to his mental disorder, His strong addiction for sex His history for reoffending after physchological treatment and imprisonment -Came from an abusive home Early Life Of
Albert DeSalvo -Father: Frank Mother: Charlotte
2 Brothers 3 Sisters -Frank taught them to Steal -Frank Made children watch him
with prositutes -After being jailed twice, Frank was divorced by Charlotte in 1944 -As a Teen, he was arrested for various crimes. Was sent to juvenile school -Since graduating from high school he inlisted in the army. -While in the army, he met Irmgard, Cathlic girl in Frankfurt, whom he later maried. Here is the story of the Strangler, yet untold,
The man who claims he murdered thirteen women,
young and old.
The elusive Strangler, there he goes,
Where his wanderlust sends him, no one knows
He struck within the light of day,
Leaving not one clue astray.
Young and old, their lips are sealed,
Their secret of death never revealed.
Even though he is sick in mind,
He’s much too clever for the police to find.
To reveal his secret will bring him fame,
But burden his family with unwanted shame.
Today he sits in a prison cell,
Deep inside only a secret he can tell.
People everywhere are still in doubt,
Is the Strangler in prison or roaming about? Poem
