Have you ever wanted to go on a shopping spree so much you’d kill for it? Would you actually strangle and bludgeon and murder living people so you could splash some cash and treat yo self? Dana Sue Gray was a petite, blonde American woman in her mid thirties who just loved to shop. She was also a serial killer. She would murder unsuspecting older women just to get at their credit cards and cheque books. Straight after the murders, without even stopping to change clothes, she would go out and impulse buy to her cold hearts content, often stopping off for lunch, massages and trips to the beauty parlour.
Cowra is a scenic town in NSW, Australia that happens to have been the setting for a lot of bloodshed. Due to the killing of over 500 Japanese POW’s in the 1940’s and the many unsolved murders that have taken place over the years since, people can’t help but think the place must be cursed. John Walsh was a 69 year old Cowra resident and grandfather who inexplicably lost it one day in 2008 and went on a killing spree. Using an axe he named “Fred” he murdered his wife and grandchildren and attempted to murder his daughter Senior Constable Shelly Walsh – but Shelly wasn’t having it.
