One sick boy…
American serial killer William Heirens wrote this message on the wall of his victim’s bedroom in lipstick after stabbing the woman to death in 1945. It earned him the nickname “The Lipstick Killer.” 7 months before, he had killed another woman, also stabbed to death in her apartment. In January 7, 1946, Heirens kidnapped, strangled and then dismembered Suzanne Degnan, who was 6 years old. 
Heirens was 17 and sentenced to a life in prison in 1946. He’s now 82 and still in prison.
