HOW THE RIPPER RIPS:
AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

Article:
Something terrible lurks within the walls of the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane.  Though many inmates at this Maximum Security “rehabilitation campus” boast some of the most horrific homicides on the Eastern Seaboard, one man has recently emerged as a different kind of killer.  His name is Dr. Abel Gideon.  And strong evidence has surfaced that he’s far more than a mild-mannered surgeon who cruelly murdered his wife.  maybe, just maybe, Gideon is the most sought after serial killer at large – a killer who’s eluded the FBI for years and has baffled their most “gifted” profilers.  That serial killer?  None other than the “Chesapeake Ripper.”  This would explain why the Ripper’s been silent for  more than two years.

Article:
The FBI isn’t just hunting psychopaths, they’re head-hunting them, too, offering competitive pay and benefits in the hopes of using one demented mind to catch another.  Sure, we’re familiar with the stereotype of the FBI profiler, swaggering onto a crime scene, fitting the pieces together like a master puzzler with his 1000-piece jigsaw.  In reality, these profilers should be likened to harridans reading a cup of spent tealeaves – passing off their active imagination as incisive fact.

The above image is part of a collection of unused ephemera intended for use in Dolarhyde’s Ledger.  The unused ephemera were sold as part of the Prop Store’s Hannibal: The Complete Series Auction.


Francisco Guerrero (aka “El Chalequero,” “The Mexican Bluebeard,” “The Consulada River Strangler/Ripper,” and/or “The Mexican Ripper”) was born in 1840 in the Bajio region of Mexico.  His childhood was marked by poverty, maternal abuse and paternal absence.

Guerrero raped, robbed and beheaded more than twenty women – primarily prostitutes – and attacked minors in the outskirts of Mexico City between the early 1880s and 1908.  He was also known to bite his sexual victims.

After his arrest in 1888 for the murder of two women, Guerrero was compared with Jack the Ripper: both targeted prostitutes approximately 40 years of age, both left gruesome wounds, both were blamed for previously unsolved crimes, and rumor had it that both were physicians or at least educated men.

At his 1890 trial, specialists were called upon to decide if he was criminally responsible.  They concluded that he was not mentally ill, but a “born criminal.”  Guerrero’s explanation of his behavior was that his victims had wounded his “self esteem as a man.”

After his release from prison in 1906, he robbed and beheaded an old woman.  Upon interrogation for that crime, he confessed: “Yes, I killed her.  I don’t know, sir… I don’t understand  what happens in me; but every woman inspires in me a terrible desire to commit a crime.”

LECTER TRIAL BEGINS

Courtroom packed as jury hears first evidence

[handwritten] You are greater than them all they cannot understand

 S. Kasparian
Staff Reporter

BALTIMORE – A decades long hunt ended yesterday with the apprehending of Dr. Hannibal Lecter.  Lecter is the FBI’s main suspect in the gruesome Chesapeake Ripper murders that ravaged the area for years.  Officials have suggested that his reign of terror may reach back as far as 15 years.

The FBI has never encountered a serial killer who possesses the cunning of the Chesapeake Ripper who has been able to allude poilce for such a long time even though his murders are amongst the most shocking and elaborate on record.  The manhunt creshendoed yesterday afternoon when Dr. Lecter was arrested at the country home of [circle] Will Graham [/circle] – a profiler who worked for the FBI until he himself became suspected of being the Ripper and was arrested and subsequently released only a couple of short years ago.  No word on Graham’s actual involvement in the crimes or arrest has been

of the psychiatric community in the Bay area for nearly 20 years and was most notable  known to the public for his testimonials at the trial for Will Graham.  Dr. Lecter was Graham’s clinical psychologist and played no small part in his incarceration in the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane.

Graham was later exhonerated and Dr. Lector himself became the lead suspect.  The attempted arrest of Lecter resulted in the death of one person hospitalization 3 others, 2 of whom were FBI agents.  Dr. Lecter then disappeared until now when agents were able to successfully take him into custody without incident.
