Jane Toppan, also known as “Jolly Jane,” was an organized lust serial killer in Massachusetts during the turn of the 19th century, who poisoned her patients when she worked as a nurse, as well as close friends and family members, claiming her main goal in life was to “have killed more people - helpless people - than any other man or woman who ever lived.” Jane confessed to murdering more than 31 people but when she was brought to trial for the murder of one of her victims, Minne Gibbs, she was found Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity and committed to Taunton Insane Hospital in 1902, where she would spend the rest of her life. After her trial, she confessed to her lawyer that she enjoyed killing and blamed the man who jilted her as a teenager as the reason why she murdered so many people.Join me on social media by following Mask of Sanity on Instagram (@maskofsanitythepodcast) and Twitter (@masksanitypod) for more updates on upcoming episodes!

Robert Berdella, known as The Butcher of Kansas City, brutally tortured and killed at least six young men between 1984 and 1987. After years of bullying as a child, the sudden loss of his father at age 16, being sexually assaulted by a co-worker as a teenager, Berdella was not mentally or emotionally equipped for everyday life. His trauma eventually manifested in violent fantasies of rape and torture to the point where he could not foster healthy relationships. Instead he kidnapped young male sex workers and turned them into his “playtoys,” by torturing them with electric shocks, injecting drain cleaners into their eyes, and sodomizing them. When his depravity revealed itself to the world, the community was shocked that this man, the friendly, neighborhood-watch leader, could have committed such abhorrent crimes.Check out the Mask of Sanity Instagram (@maskofsanitythepodcast) and Twitter (@masksanitypod) for more updates on upcoming episodes.

You want fries with that? Maybe not while you listen to this episode. Melanie covers the grotesque case of Joe Metheny, a serial killer who preyed on drug addicts and prostitutes and then to hide the evidence, he used parts of his victims to create burger patties for his open-pit beef stand. This case will make your stomach do flip-flops because not only did he turn his victims into meat patties, he also sold these flesh burgers to unsuspecting customers who stopped by his roadside food stand near Baltimore, Maryland. After he was arrested, he began his confession by telling police “I’m a very sick person.”Check out the Mask of Sanity Instagram (@maskofsanitythepodcast) and Twitter (@masksanitypod) for more updates on upcoming episodes.

In the United States, the name John Justin Bunting and the Snowtown Murders may not be a household name, unlike Ted Bundy or Jeffrey Dahmer, and you might even shrug your shoulders, not knowing anything about him or the murders. But if you were in Australia, you’d get a completely different reaction. Bunting, along with his accomplices Robert Wagner, James Vlassakis, and Mark Haydon, tortured and killed at least 11 people during the 1990s in South Australia. The horrific murders would become known as The Snowtown Murders or the Bodies in Barrels murders because of how and where the remains of eight of the victims were found. The reasons for why the killers selected their victims were equally terrifying.Check out the Mask of Sanity Instagram (@maskofsanitythepodcast) and Twitter (@masksanitypod) for more updates on upcoming episodes.
