Known as 'the Gorilla Killer,' Earle Leonard Nelson, killed mostly landladies. He gained their trust with bible in hand. After strangling them, he would then engage in necrophilia. He hid his victims under their beds.

He killed in the US and Canada and was hanged in Winnipeg in 1928.

Murder & Obsession


  1. Where are you finding these? A Bible-toting, landlady killer who is a necrophiliac sounds like a character to be written about but who would believe it???

    1. I know, they trusted him because he carried the bible!

    1. Horrible! He placed one woman under her bed for her husband to find.

  4. Poor landladies. You do find some nasty characters Yolanda. I had never heard of any of them.

    1. I hadn't either until I researched the subject. Almost couldn't go through with the challenge, it sickened me so much.

  5. That's one way of not paying rent.

  6. I feel kind of sorry for Nelson. Even though he paid with his own life for his horrific crimes, that doesn't really compensate those who lost their lives. The fact remains that his upbringing and injuries from that collision most likely led to serious mental illness. I wonder if he would have been helped today rather than sentenced to death.

    1. Death was probably the best he could expect. I don't know that there is help for someone so damaged. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Oh goodness. I'm happier thinking these are creations of imagination than knowing they are actual people. Might be all the discouraging I need to give up my dreams of being a landlady.

    1. It's amazing that the creations most writers imagine are tame compared to the real monsters.

  8. I think I've read about this one before. Clearly a man with many, many issues. How does a human mind become so twisted?
