Serial murderer Jerry Brudos, who stalked Salem, Oregon, and the surrounding area in the late 1960s, kept a gruesome photographic record of his victims. And he did all this while carrying on a normal life (except for one bizarre detail: in their house, he and his wife and kids walked around the house nude.) His wife, Darcie, was to later say that she had no idea what was going on. Brudos was also one of the physically strongest serial murderers. He was a six-foot, freckle-faced man with a moonish face and eyes that angled down at the corners. He weighed 190 pounds, but it was said that he could lift a three-hundred-pound freezer by himself. Brudos’s first victim was a woman who was selling encyclopedias, and hers was a case of monumental bad luck. In interviews with the police, he gradualy admitted to and described her murder. When she knocked on the door, he opened it and lured her down into the basement, where he battered her to death with a two-by-four, cut off her feet, and made paper-weights of them. He continued to lure women into his house, and he used a horrific method to kill them. He took each victim to his garage, trussed her up, tied a noose around her neck, and, with the rope looped over an overhead beam, pulled her up and off the floor, strangling her. He also liked to photograph each victim as she died. Indeed, when police examined the picture of a woman, Jan Whitney, being hung, in a corner of the picture they saw a face reflected in the mirror in the photo - the face of the photographer, Jerry Brudos. Brudos was convicted of the killings and sentenced to consecutive life terms.
