Akron Ohio the childhood bedroom of one of the most notorious serial killers in American history, Robert Berdella also known as the Butcher of Kansas City


In June of 1986, Berdella lured Todd Stoops, a male prostitute he had known for some time, to his house and held him captive for six weeks before killing him as well.


In March of 1988, he abducted his last known victim, a prostitute named Chris Bryson, and put him in his basement. While Berdella was at work, Bryson managed to break free and escape by jumping from a second floor window. He ran to a neighbor's house and thus the killings came to an end.

Also found were torture devices, occult literature, ritual robes, human skills and bones and a human head in Bedella’s yard.
