Inside the world of fetish killer Jerry Brudos

On March 27, 1969, Karen Sprinker, 19, disappeared, the third victim of serial killer Jerome “Jerry” Brudos, a married father of two and one of the most disturbing serial killers known. Brudos abducted, tortured, and mutilated his victims before killing them. Brudos saved body parts for his post-mortem high-heeled rituals.

Your Daily Creepout: A Serial Killer’s Shoe Fetish

Serial killer and necrophiliac Jerome “Jerry” Brudos loved women’s shoes. His fetish started when he was young; a 5-year-old Jerry played with a pair of discarded stilettos at a junk yard near his childhood home. He collected shoes, and used the severed foot of a 19-year-old victim to model them. The photographs Brudos took of his victims’ feet in high heeled shoes can be seen here.
