September 3, 1998 - Robert Yates
A missing woman from Spokane, Washington has been added to the list of eight other women presumed to be the victims of a serial killer. Investigators put Melody Ann Murfin on the list after spending more than three months trying to locate her. Although she has not been confirmed dead, investigators do not believe the 43-year-old drug addict and part-time prostitute is still alive. Murfin disappeared May 13.
September 7, 1974 - Ted Bundy
The fragmented remains of Ott and Naslund were discovered on September 7, 1974 off Interstate 90 near Issaquah, one mile from the park. Along with the women's remains was found an extra femur bone and vertebrae, which Bundy shortly before his execution would identify as that of Georgeann Hawkins. Between March 1 and March 3, 1975, the skulls and jawbones (but no other skeletal remains) of Healy, Rancourt, Parks and Ball were found on Taylor Mountain just east of Issaquah. Years later Bundy claimed that he had also dumped Donna Manson's body there, but no trace of her has ever been found.
September 19, 1977 - David (Son Of Sam) Berkowitz
Within a few weeks of his arrest, Berkowitz was hinting that others were involved in the .44 murders. In a letter to the New York Post dated September 19, 1977, Berkowitz repeated the possessed dog story, but closed out his missive with the warning, "There are other Sons out there — God help the world." In later years, he has discussed the cult claims in greater detail, but alleges that he cannot divulge all he knows without putting his family at risk. The cult had roughly two dozen core members in New York — the "twenty-two disciples of hell" mentioned in the Breslin letter. The cult had ties across the U.S., claimed Berkowitz, and was deeply involved in drug smuggling and other illegal activities. Berkowitz reportedly invited the former priest and exorcist Malachi Martin to visit him to discuss his past Satanic cult involvement. Hockenberry asserts that, even aside from the Satanic cult claims, many officials doubted the single-shooter theory, writing, "[w]hat most don't know about the Son of Sam case is that from the beginning, not everyone bought the idea that Berkowitz acted alone. The list of skeptics includes both the police who worked the case and the prosecutor from Queens where five of the shootings took place."
September 23, 1938 - Joe Ball
Joseph D. (Joe) Ball (January 7, 1896 - September 23, 1938) was an American serial killer, sometimes referred to as The Alligator Man, the Butcher of Elmendorf and the Bluebeard of South Texas. He is said to have killed at least 20 women in the 1930s. His existence was long believed to be apocryphal, but he is a familiar figure in Texas folklore. After serving on the front lines in Europe during World War I, Ball started his career as a bootlegger, providing illegal liquor to those who could pay. After the end of Prohibition, he opened a saloon called the Sociable Inn in Elmendorf, Texas. He built a pond that contained five alligators and charged people to view them, especially during feeding time; the food consisting mostly of live cats and dogs. After a while women in the area were reported missing, including barmaids, former girlfriends and his wife. When two Texas Rangers came to question him in 1938, Ball pulled a handgun from his cash register and killed himself with a bullet through the heart (some sources report that he shot himself in the head). A handyman that conspired with Ball, Clifford Wheeler, admitted to helping Ball get rid of the bodies of two of the women he had killed. Wheeler led them to the remains of Hazel Brown and Minnie Gotthard. Wheeler told authorities that Ball murdered at least 20 other women, but the alligators had disposed of any evidence. There has never been any firm evidence that the alligators actually ate any of his victims. There were few written sources from the era which could verify Ball's crimes. Newspaper editor Michael Hall investigated the story in depth in 2002, and wrote up his findings for Texas Monthly. The film Eaten Alive by Tobe Hooper was inspired by Joe Ball.
September 24, 2002 - Familicide in Lake Worth
Police in Lake Worth, Florida, aree searching for the nephew of a man found slain along with his girlfriend and her three children -- including her pregnant daughter. Police idd not say how the victims were killed but they were trying to identify a suspect and a motive in the slayings. Lt. Susan Wellborn said they were searching for Michael Milan Roman, 29, who lived at the home where some of the bodies were found. The body of Carmen Valentin, 42, was discovered by police in a roadway in Lake Worth, about five miles south of West Palm Beach. Police originally thought she was the victim of a hit-and-run. Then they found the body of Ismael Gomez, 52, inside a tarp-covered truck behind their home. Gomez lived in the home and was Valentin's boyfriend of eight years. The bodies of Valentin's three children -- Juan Carlos Valentin, 17, Elizabeth Valentin, 22, and Damarus Valentin, 19, who was eight months pregnant -- were found inside the house. Relatives said a note from Roman was also found in the house. "He said he was sorry that happened and that he was going to move," said Angel Alicea, Carmen Valentin's nephew.
September 25, 1970 - Dean Corll
All of the victims were young males, the youngest aged 13. The eldest was 18-year-old Jeffrey Konen, Corll's first known victim, who vanished on September 25, 1970, while hitchiking from the University of Texas to his parents' home in Houston. The majority of victims were in their mid-teens. Most had been abducted from a low-income neighborhood in Houston: one, 15-year-old Homer Garcia, met Henley at his driving school education class and was invited to Corll's for "a party". Many were listed by police as runaways despite the anxious protests of parents who insisted that their boys would not run away from home. Quite often the victims, alone or in pairs, were invited to Corll's parties. Many of the victims were boys that often came to his parties and used drugs or alcohol. Others were friends of Henley and/or Brooks, who usually accompanied Corll when he went searching for victims; many teenaged boys would not get into a vehicle with a lone man, but with one or two other boys present, they were apparently more willing to do so.
September 25, 2002 - Robert Pickton
A spokesman for B.C. Supreme Court said a Canadian judge could throw U.S. reporters out of court if they defy any court ban on publishing details about Robert Pickton's preliminary hearing on November 4. According to Canadian law, details of preliminary hearings cannot be published, but the Seattle Post-Intelligencer said they intend to ignore the ban. "What could happen," said Lloyd McKenzie, spokesman for B.C. Supreme Court justices, "is there would be security personnel checking identification, and if they are representatives of a foreign press, they could be told to leave. They could be told, 'You are now in a Canadian jurisdiction.' "Post-Intelligencer spokesman James Wright said: "We would treat this the same way we would if we were covering a case in Jakarta. We wouldn't let the local government determine what we write at home."
