In Melbourne in 2002 the piped fair ground music and sweet treats of Francesco Mangione’s ice cream truck were horribly upstaged by the dying screams of his cousin Dennis. Just how could a turf war over ice cream get so far out of hand that it leads to murder?
Manuel Blanco Romasanta was Spain’s first serial killer. He made soap out of his victims fat and sold it at markets. He also claimed to be a werewolf. When asked to prove this to the court he said that the 13 year curse had expired just the week before so he couldn’t. Sounds legit to us.
