Real Horror: Fred West Found Murdered

(buy it here)
Everyday, I will be bringing this site into a new direction. We will be talking about real horror, amist reviews of horror movies and science fiction. Today, we will focus on a little known fact for New Year's Day. Today in 1995, serial killer Fred West died. He hung himself in jail, and that caused a whole new way that law enforcement take care of prisoners once they are behind bars.

What was so bad that he would be in jail in the first place? I already said he was a serial killer, stupid. Fred Ward and his wife were responsible for at least 12 murders. His home was known as "House of Horrors". 9 corpses were found on his property and his wife Rosemary joined in after discovering what he was doing.

In 1996, the house known as the "House of Horrors" was demolished, and good riddance. It's not a footpath, for joggers and walkers to enjoy. However, today in 1995, Fred West took his clothing, ripped it apart and hung himself. High profile inmates seem to kill themselves sometimes, like the last guy that was caught with a house of horrors in Arizona.

Read about this true crime in "Fred & Rose: The Full Story of Fred and Rose West and the Gloucester House of Horrors" by Howard Sounes, available through amazon.com, here
