Albert Fish


Albert Fish was a kindly and frail old man when he committed his monstrous crimes. He claimed to have killed over 100 victims, though the actual number is unclear. A masochist, Fish enjoyed swatting himself with a nail embedded paddle and stuck pins in his rectum for pleasure. What would eventually send Albert Fish to prison was his letter to the family of his victim Grace Budd, who he happily ate and buried in an unknown grave. The particular envelope was recognized by police and Fish was apprehended. He was executed by the electric chair in January 1936. Popular lore has said that the electricity failed to end his life after an X-Ray technician noted dozens of pins in Fish's rectum shorting out the circuits.The photo of the pins in his rectum: http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/1928-murder-grace-budd-albert-fish-gallery-1.1277430?pmSlide=1.1277421
