Today, May 19th in 1870 Albert Fish was born in Washington D.C, USA.
Albert fish was perhaps the worst serial killer, preying on very young children, and eating them. He would taunt the parents, sending them details of their child’s death, and how he ate them. As a child rapist and cannibal, he boasted that he had “a child in every state” though it’s not confirmed if he meant as a rapist or cannibal. He had stated that his victim count was 100 or more, though the true amount has not been confirmed. His infamous quote “I like children, they are tasty” is one of the best known serial killer quotes to date.
After being found and convicted, Albert was killed on
January 16, 1936 (aged 65) in Ossining, New York by means of electrocution.
