  • Comment Policy

    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc.
    3 - Please remember to not use all CAPS or capitalize the beginning letter of every single word or every other word, or use IM/text abbreviations (except like LOL). Please have respect for other readers and type words out. Not everyone is into that and it is inappropriate here. [examples: "cuzn" "tha" "dat" and so many more] Learn proper English! You should have learned it in school.
    4 - Your comments must be all in English, using proper English, too. No huge run-on sentences (use punctuation). Pretend you learned something in English class.
    5 - I will also not allow Anonymous comments. This includes using anonymous, obviously fake email addresses (you@you.com, me@me.com, anonymous@yahoo.com, or fictional characters, etc.)
    6 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.
    7 - You must be 18 years of age or older to comment.
    If you have a question or problem with this, please feel free to email me (there is a link to my email above).


Monsters Among Us: Gary Michael Heidnik *One of the models for “Silence of the Lambs”*

Victims
Josefina Rivera, 25 [survived] [kidnapped 11/25/1986]
Sandra Lindsay, 24 [kidnapped 12/3/1986, murdered 2/1987] (no photo)
Lisa Thomas, 19 [survived] [kidnapped 12/23/1986]
Deborah Dudley, 23 [kidnapped 1/2/1987, murdered 3/19/1987]
Jacqueline Askins, 17 [survived] [kidnapped 1/18/1987]
Agnes Adams [survived] [kidnapped 3/23/1987]

Gary Heidnik was a sexual sadist. The victims went through hell before the end, whether it was murder, or escape. However, one of the worst things I have heard is the horrible way the surviving victims were treated by the public and the people of Philadelphia after the trial. It was as if the public blamed the victims for the crimes committed against them. People kept calling them the “Heidnik girls” (which kept them from having any kind of privacy or normal life) and called them “Alpo” (referring to the dog food that Heidnik forced them to eat). I am sure that not all of the people of Philadelphia are that cruel, but those that did this do not know or understand empathy or compassion. The things that Gary Heidnik did to these women will stay with them forever. None of them have had an easy time. I hope that in time, they will have peace in their lives.
