SS Brigadier and Major General of Police Erwin Schulz commanded Einsatzkommando 5 (special killing squad 5 under Einsatzgruppe C) that murdered 150,000 civilians in the Ukraine, participating in such horrors as the Babi Yar massacre of Jews. Schulz then applied for transfer because he was perceived as "soft" having refused to shoot women and children. He survived the war, was imprisoned but he was eventually paroled and died a free man in 1981.
Henry Lee Lucas was a necrophiliac that beat, stabbed, strangled, and dismembered his victims. He is believed to have committed over 100 horrendous murders, including his mother and 10-year-old niece. Lucas was a roofer and many of the murders were committed with his co-worker, Ottis Toole, who was just as sadistic. Both men had horribly abusive upbringings... the creation of two more serial killers.
