    Before his execution for murder in 1930 seriel killer Carl Panzram claimed that in 1920 he had killed 10 sailors in the summer of 1920 near New York City and threw their bodies into the river. A possible way to confirm his claims-did any unknown bodies turn up in New York City on/in summer of 1920?

    I thought he said he killed 10 sailors in Africa.

    Of course he said he killed a lot of people. I don't know too much about Panzram. Is there any book length treatment of him?

    ........“Every day or two I would go to New York and hang around 25 South Street and size up the sailors,” Panzram said............ Panzram dumped his victims into the sea. “There they are yet, ten of ‘em. I worked that racket about three weeks..............

    Harold Schechter ought to write a Panzram book. His speciality is historical serial murder cases.

    I wonder if the guy wasn't maybe like a Henry Lee Lucas, though, and confessed to a lot of crimes he didn't commit.

    Allegedly Panzram claimed to gone to Africa where he raped/killed a boy and then killed several rowers of a boat he had hired.

    Wow, that paper never overlooked any story it seems. Looks like just about every non-natural death that occurred in North America during that last week of October 1928 is reported in it. Just spent an entertaining hour browsing through it, gotta love those old ads. 70$ a month for a 6-room, wood-paneled apartment with three bathrooms! :eek:hwow:
