BRIAN WHITNEY - INCEL MASS MURDERER

Elliot Rodger considered himself to be intelligent, refined, handsome, fashionable and charming. He spent years trying to be cool so women would like him. He thought if he just wore expensive and fashionable clothing, had a better car, or if he were rich, then women would throw themselves at him. In fact, he thought himself to be “The Supreme Gentleman.”

Yet, women paid no attention to him. His only conclusion was that they were genetically flawed, and because of this they ignored him and threw themselves at men who were ignorant, savage brutes. In his mind, his lack of success with women had ruined his life. He began to psychologically deteriorate.

Rodger decided to get revenge. He spent months planning his “Day of Retribution,” an act where he would kill as many attractive women, and the type of men that they were drawn to, as he could in a savage attack. Then he acted on his plan, killing 6 people and wounding numerous others in what became known as the Isla Vista Massacre. The story does not end with Rodger however, as numerous other incels have since committed copycat attacks.

The "Supreme Gentleman" Killer by Brian Whitney is the story of Elliot Rodger and how he turned from a nice, quiet polite young man to the first self-identified incel (involuntarily celibate) killer.

Zodiac Killer interviews #5 - RAY GRANT

Of all the notorious serial killers of the 20th century, only San Francisco’s Zodiac remains at large. A cold-blooded psycho stalking the nightmare streets of the late 1960s, he left behind at least five dead victims. The menacing sociopath sent more than two dozen letters to the newspapers, including four weird ciphers. Only the first code was cracked, and it began: I LIKE KILLING PEOPLE BECAUSE IT IS SO MUCH FUN. His last three ciphers, including the infamously unintelligible Z340, have confounded cryptographers and computer science professionals alike.But the most terrifying thing about him is that he was more than one person!The first half of ZODIAC KILLER SOLVED walks the reader through a detailed analysis of the forensics, ballistics, circumstantial evidence, and eyewitness testimony of the Zodiac crimes, and arrives at a startling conclusion:The Zodiac murders were committed by four highly proactive and extremely intellectual conspirators:1. a “trigger man” career academic who lectured on public policy at Harvard;2. a “press agent” librarian and Germanic languages scholar from Cal-Berkeley;3. a “cryptographer” statistician for the California Department of Justice; and4. the female artistic “mastermind,” a founder of the Sculptor’s Guild in NYC.The second half of ZODIAC KILLER SOLVED documents the author’s attempt to prevent a criminal catastrophe predicted by the Zodiac ciphers—The Terminus Event, an occurrence eerily similar to September 11th, 2001—in which a skyscraper in Cambridge, Massachusetts will be blown to bits, and innocent bystanders in Boston will then serve as targets for Zodiac snipers firing from a downtown rooftop.No book like ZODIAC KILLER SOLVED has ever existed, and no amount of analysis offered in any other criminal procedural, however detailed its examination may be, compares with what is put forth here in depth and scope.
