This is from a great Blog, Murder by Gaslight. Dr Thomas Neill Cream was one of the few men from Chicago suspected of being Jack the Ripper. He was a serial killer, abortionist and poisoner. He looked just like Snidely Whiplash, so you know he's a villain. Hell, just look at the top hat, cool moustache and monocle, pure evil!!
An amazing man...General Joshua Chamberlain, hero of Little Round Top at Gettysburg, winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor, professor of rhetoric, Governor of Maine, and President of Bowdoin College. Also the character upon whom Jeff Daniel's character in Gettysburg was based.
Adam John Walsh, son of John Walsh, was abducted from a Sears department store at the Hollywood Mall in Hollywood, Florida; he was later found murdered and decapitated. He is the reason behind America's Most Wanted and Code Adam. Adam was killed by Ottis Toole, who was probably a serial killer died in prison.
