I just wanna be a dork for a minute
H.H. Holmes didn’t build the hotel, he got close to an elderly woman, got her to name him in her will, and killed her. She left everything to him, including her hotel.
And then he modded the FUCK out of it.
Beds that dumped bodies into the basement, bricking people in, gas in the bedrooms, deadly mazes…
H.H. Holmes didn’t fuck around.
YES HELLO UM EXCUSE ME BUT HH HOLMES IS MY FAVORITE SERIAL KILLER AND I DID A REPORT ON M’BOY LAST YEAR SO I CAN TELL YA THIS:
It wasn’t the ‘elderly’ woman’s hotel. There was a drug store owned by a woman, Dr. Elizabeth Holton, who was actually only two years older than Herman Mudgett, known popularly as H.H. Holmes. There is no proof that she was killed by Holmes so it’s speculated that she gave up the practice to him in 1886 around the time she became pregnant with her second daughter after Holmes had been working there for a while. And to prove that she was still alive after this time, the Chicago city directories still listed her as a physician living on 6157 S. Honore Street as late as 1900 (her husband still had the railroad job). She was still on 63rd street, about a block away from the old pharmacy and “castle,” in 1892, when a city voter list has her living at 800 63rd Street. That she was on the voter list at all is somewhat notable - under “remarks,” a section usually left blank, the registrar wrote in “woman.” Also, she did move to California with Frances, her daughter, at some point, presumably after her husband died in 1910. She died there in 1933. SO NO HOLMES DID NOT KILL THE PREVIOUS OWNER AND THE CASTLE CAME ALONG LATER.
Holmes was also a conman in other places and that’s where he changed his name from Herman Webster Mudgett to Henry Howard Holmes (Indiana, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Canada). He went to Medical School at the University of Michigan and he stole corpses from the school laboratory and would disfigure them and then collect their insurance money (which is how he got the majority of his cash).
The “Murder Castle” came along in the early 1890s and opened as a hotel in 1893. It was located right across the street from the drug store and he had several different builders help build it so he was the only one who truly knew the inside layout. The place was insane. It had diagonal ceilings and doors that would open up to brick walls and it truly was a maze with several floors. He tortured people in many different forms with the motive of taking their insurance money and also the fact that he was a sick fuck and enjoyed it. There were gas chambers and various torture rooms and he would also skin people alive and sell the skeletons to local medical schools which is how he got more money. But in the end, he was unmasked after being found guilty for insurance fraud and one thing led to another and next thing ya know, you’re confessing to 27 murders and hanging from a rope.
HOT DAMN HISTORY SIDE!
NO BUT GUYS CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT KENNETH BIANCHI
Because the psychology nerd in me has a fucking field day with this guy. I’m not an expert on him, so I don’t know the whole thing, but once pretty much solid evidence was found that would get Bianchi convicted, this extremely cunning and manipulative man ALMOST managed to get off the hook, I shit you not.
Knowing that he would never be able to prove his innocence, he instead decided to fake suffering from multiple personality, as you cannot find somebody guilty if they were not in control of their actions mentally (they would normally get sent to a psychiatric hospital instead). Bianchi managed to fool professionals into thinking that he genuinely suffered from split personality (this fact is even more amazing as most psychiatrists today believe that split personality doesn’t really exist, or at least is extremely rare, but idk if psychiatrists back then still believes in it). Bianchi was only caught because one time while interviewed he said the wrong name, his act was scarily believable and fooled everyone involved. He was a classic cunning, intelligent psychopath, who literally almost got away with murder thanks to his charm and skills of manipulation.
This guy was staggering, again, I’ve only heard about him from a tv documentary (on psychopaths) so some of this may not be entirely accurate depending on how good my memory is :)
“MY FAVORITE SERIAL KILLER”

"No, we weren’t lovers, but in a way we had opened ourselves to each other even more deeply than lovers do. The thought caused me a good deal of grief. What a terrible thing it is to wound someone you really care for- and to do it so unconsciously."
— Haruki Murakami (via rarararambles)
"Intimacy is not who you let touch you. Intimacy is who you text at 3am about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are."
