In this 1984 interview, serial killer Edmund Kemper discusses how he kept up an appearance of normalcy while harboring homicidal and necrophiliac desires. Kemper, who killed his grandparents at age 15, is a very large man, standing tall at 6 feet 9 inches and weighing over 300 pounds. During his career as a serial killer, which spanned the early 1970s, he killed six female hitchhikers in California. He ended his murder streak by killing his mother and one of her friends, then turning himself in.
As a child, Kemper abused animals and played bizarre sex games with his sister’s dolls. At trial, he pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity but was found guilty of eight murders. He was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.
