The Cannibal Carnival

dichotomized:

“After my head has been chopped off, will I still be able to hear, at least for a moment, the sound of my own blood gushing from my neck? That would be the pleasure to end all pleasures.”

From 1910 to 1929 in Dusseldorf, Germany, Peter Kurten murdered nine people with hammers, knives, scissors, and his bare hands, male and female alike, from ages 5 to middle age. He would also often drink their blood, giving him the nickname “The Vampire of Dusseldorf.” He was captured after his wife alerted the police, and was executed by guillotine in 1931. A psychiatrist who interviewed him in prison determined that Kurten needed the sight of blood to be sexually stimulated.

Marie Noe is a serial killer who was convicted in June 1999 of killing eight of her children. Between the years 1949 and 1968, eight of her ten children died due to mysterious causes which were attributed then to sudden infant death syndrome. All of the eight children were born healthy and developing normally. Two other children died of natural causes. Noe pled guilty in June of 1999 to eight counts of second degree murder and was sentenced to twenty years probation and psychiatric study. Noe was one of several children that were born out of parents’ troubled marriage. At the age of 5, Marie came down with scarlet fever, which she later credited as the cause of her learning difficulties. As a young teenager, Marie dropped out of school to work and help care for a niece who was born to one of her older sisters when Marie was just 12, and was raised as Marie’s sister. Marie met Arthur Noe at a private club in West Kensington, Philadelphia. They briefly dated and eloped. The couple had ten children, all of whom died between the ages of 5 days and 14 months old. During the Caesarean birth of her final child, Noe suffered from a uterine rupture and had to undergo a hysterectomy. There was interest renewed in this case after a book was published in 1997 called The Death of Innocents, regarding a New York woman named Waneta Hoyt, as well as an investigative article that was printed in the April 1998 issue of Philadelphia magazine. The writer of the Philadelphia article turned over his investigation results to the police in March 1998. When police received this material, they began questioning Noe, who subsequently admitted to suffocating four of her children. She claimed she could not remember what happened to her other four children who died under similar circumstances. She was charged with first degree murder in August 1998.A plea agreement was reached and Marie Noe admitted to eight counts of second degree murder. She was sentenced in June 1999 to 20 years of probation with the first five years under house arrest. A condition in her plea agreement was that she had to agree to psychiatric study in hopes of possibly identifying what caused her to kill her own children. In September 2001, the study was filed with the court that stated Noe was suffering from mixed personality disorder.

Issei Sagawa murdered an innocent woman and spent three days eating her flesh. Due to loopholes in the law, Issei is a free man to this day.On the afternoon of June 13, 1981, a Japanese man named Issei Sagawa walked to the Bois de Boulogne, a park on the outskirts of Paris, carrying two suitcases. The contents of those suitcases, to the lament of a nearby jogger, was the dismembered body of a fellow student — a Dutch woman named Renée Hartevelt, whom Sagawa had shot three days prior and had spent the days since eating various parts of her body.He was soon arrested. According to reports, Issei uttered, “I killed her to eat her flesh,” when they raided his home, whereupon they found bits of Renne still in his fridge.Sagawa was declared insane and unfit for trial and was institutionalized in Paris. His incarceration was to be short, however, as the French public soon grew weary of their hard-earned francs going to support this evil woman-eater, and Issei was promptly deported. Herein followed a bizarre and seemingly too convenient set of legal loopholes and psychiatric reports that led doctors in Japan declaring him “sane, but evil.”On August 12, 1986, Sagawa checked himself out of Tokyo’s Matsuzawa Psychiatric hospital, and has been a free man ever since.

The Vrolik Museum
The Museum Vrolik is centered on the tremendous number of objects collected by Gerardus Vrolik (1775-1859) and his son, Willem Vrolik (1801-1863) — both of whom served as professors of anatomy at Athenaeum Illustre, the forerunner to the University of Amsterdam. Gerardus began amassing his thousands of anatomical, botanical and zoological specimens in 1795, which Willem later continued to add onto and distill into academic categories. This private collection came to be known as Museum Vrolikianum.

WAVERLY HILL SANATORIUM
I have received so many messages requesting me to make this post. After looking into it, I realized why. 
The hospital was always dedicated to the treatment of tuberculosis patients, a disease that was fairly common in the early 20th Century.
It is estimated that as many as 63,000 people died as the sanatorium. Those deaths coupled with the reports of severe mistreatment of patients and highly questionable experiments and procedures are ingredients for a haunted location.
One of the most famous things about is the death tunnel. So many people were dying because of tuberculosis, that this tunnel was used to carry the bodies out without other patients having to see them. 

In room 502 (episode feature in ghost hunters), it was said that there was a murder/suicide of a nurse.  
Legend says the nurse found out she was pregnant by the owner of the sanatorium without being married and had contracted tuberculosis, so she hanged herself with a light bulb wire outside the room she was in at the time.

Ghost investigators who have ventured into Waverly have reported a host of strange paranormal phenomena, including voices of unknown origin, isolated cold spots and unexplained shadows. Screams have been heard echoing in its now abandoned hallways, and fleeting apparitions have been encountered.

The Alnwick Poison Garden
Alnwick Castle, Northumberland, England

The Alnwick Poison Garden boasts some of the world’s most dangerous plants, hence the name. Behind big black gates, the carefully curated garden contains about 100 varieties illegal narcotics including poppies, which are used to make opium, the poisonous Atropa belladonna (also known as deadly nightshade), Strychnos nux-vomica (used to make strychnine), Coca (from which cocaine is produced), hemlock (used to kill Socrates), cannabis and more.

The current Duchess of Northumberland decided to revamp the gardens when she became mistress of Alnwick Castle. The project began around 2000, but she did not begin the Poison Garden until five years later. Inspired by the garden near Padua, Italy which was once used by the Medici’s to find better ways to kill their enemies, the Duchess decided to build a garden that was filled with narcotic, poisonous and deadly plants. The initial design included some medicinal plants, but she had them removed to maintain the concept of the Poison Garden.

How to escape after being buried alive in a coffin.

saraqueer:

timesnewromney:

shickhard:

It could happen to anyone. People bury a person alive to scare them or to get rid of them. In this situation, rely only on yourself.

  1. Do not waste oxygen. In a classic coffin there’s only enough oxygen for about an hour, maybe two. Inhale deeply, exhale very slowly. Once inhaled - do not swallow, or you will start to hyperventilate. Do not light up lighters or matches, they will waste oxygen. Using a flashlight is allowed. Screaming increases anxiety, which causes increased heartbeat and therefore - waste of oxygen. So don’t scream.
  2. Shake up the lid with your hands. In some cheap low-quality coffins you will be able to even make a hole (with an engagement ring or a belt buckle.)
  3. Cross your arms over your chest, holding onto your shoulders with your hands, and pull the shirt off upward. Tie it in a knot above your head, like so: imageThis will prevent you from suffocating when the dirt falls on your face. 
  4. Kick the lid with your legs. In some cheap coffins the lid is broken or damaged already after being buried, due to the weight of the ground above it. 
  5. As soon as the lid breaks, throw and move the dirt that falls through in the direction of your feet. When it takes up a lot of space, try pressing the ground to the sides of the coffin with your legs and feet. Move around a bit. 
  6. Whatever you do - your main goal is to sit up: dirt will fill up the empty space and move to your advantage, so no matter what - do not stop and try breathing steadily and calmly. 
  7. Get up. Remember: the dirt in the grave is very loose, so battling your way up will be easier than it seems. It’s the other way around during a rainy weather however, since water makes dirt heavy and sticky.
