09: The Weepy Voiced Killer

Aug. 12, 2019

For a number of serial killers, sometimes the act of murder just isn’t enough to satisfy them. Some taunt the police in letters. Some call family members to tease them. Some take to the media to stir up emotions. Such cat-and-mouse messages often satisfy the killer’s desperate ego and heighten their sense of control over the world. They want recognition and attention for their crimes But sometimes, these messages can be spurred by a sense of guilt, whether conscious or not.

Between 1980 and 1982, a serial killer was terrorizing Minneapolis residents. He became known as the “Weepy-Voiced Killer” due to the emotional phone calls he would make to police following his murders, begging them to catch him.
