Not from the Mr. Nice Guy file. The most unrepentant killer of
them all. Carl started his criminal career by getting arrested at age eight for
drunk and disorderly behavior. It was downhill ever since. His killing spree
spanned two continents. While in Africa he hired eight blacks to help him hunt
crocodiles. Instead, he killed his hired hands, sodomized their corpses and fed
them to the hungry reptiles.
He boasted of committing thousands of robberies, larcenies, arsons and having sodomized a thousand men. He was hanged in 1930 for killing the laundry foreman in prison. Even when he was at the scaffold he meanly snapped at the executioner, "Hurry it up, you bastard. I could hang a dozen men while you're fooling around."
