Murderabilia by Harold Schechter


True crime author Harold Schechter’s latest book tells the stories of 100 shocking and horrific crimes from around the world spanning two centuries (1808-2014) through objects in public or private collections that are associated with them.

This fascinating look at crime memorabilia (or “murderabilia“) includes items such as the false teeth of serial killer Belle Gunness, gloves used by the Acid Bath Murderer, Ted Bundy’s VW Beetle, and even objects connected to Wisconsin’s own Ed Gein, the Slenderman stabbing, and the severed head of Peter Kurten that hangs in Wisconsin Dells.
