Harvey Glatman, “The Lonely Hearts Killer”
As a teenager in the 1940’s, Glatman would break into women’s apartments, assault them and take souvenirs, for which he served an 8-month prison sentence. He was diagnosed a psychopath by a psychiatrist at Sing Sing. He then began posing as a photographer looking for models. He would use his ruse of being a photographer to convince models to go back to his apartment with him, where he would sexually assault and strangle them - taking photos the whole time. He led police to the photos when he was arrested. Glatman confessed to three murders and was convicted of two, although he was suspected of killing more.
He was gassed in 1959 in San Quentin. His last words were, “I knew this is the way it would be.”
