The Serial Killers
- dark poems to chill the heart
The Darkness Below
Sabrina was drinking at the bar
Waiting for a friend
She was drinking a martini
And getting impatient
She liked De Angelo's
But she wanted to get to the nightclub
As she sipped her drink
A young man approached her and started to chat
He was well-dressed, dark hair, good-looking
They chatted for a while
He was apparently a post-grad student at the university
He was studying Law
"I will be back in a minute she said"
And headed for the toilets
She returned and sipped her drink
She started to feel giddy
"I need some air"
"Let me help you"
The young student guided Sabrina outside
As she breathed in the night air she passed out
...Groggy and disoriented she started to wake up
The place was dark and damp and smelt of rotting flesh
A sudden sense of shock and horror hit her
She realised her legs were shackled and she could not move
There was a crack of light from above
She was in some kind of makeshift dungeon or call
She started to scream and scream in panic and terror
She could feel the bones of skeletons around her
She screamed in terror and banged her fists on the wall
The trap door above opened
"So you have woken up at last"
"Having a good time down there"
"The first night is free of charge"
"The second night will cost you an arm and a leg"
"Welcome to my home, I hope you enjoy your stay"
"You crazy fucker, are you mad? Let me out you crazy loon"
"You shouldn't lose your temper"
"You will have to be punished for that"
...William H. Jackson was arrested by police after a tip-off
A girl had escaped from his car after he had drugged her
At his three-bedroom home the police found 40 bodies
They all showed signs of mutilation
The body of Sabrina Henderson was eventually identified as one of the victims
Her parents were unable to cope and they both had nervous breakdowns
She was their only daughter and the centre of all their hopes and ambitions
There are so many victims in cases like this
...My name is Professor Jane Henderson
Sabrina was my elder cousin
I started to study Criminal Psychology
I know we can prevent crimes like this
We have to help all our children
Crime and abuse can be the starting point
Isolation and alienation are the breeding ground of despair and psychosis
Some people say we get the society we deserve
That is probably true
But we can have a better society if we study behaviour
And prevent any child from becoming psychotic or dangerous
Every life I save is a tribute to Sabrina
I hope my knowledge will help others
We all have a role to play to create a safe society
How safe do you feel today?
