Slice Letter Opener Usability Review

He daubed Sign of the Cross in blood on the nun he'd hated; GERALD ROBINSON THE BLOODY PRIEST.

THE KILLERS OF SUBURBIA

The pillars of the community... priests, teachers, doctors and
police officers are the sort of people we expect to protect us and
uphold the law. but these professionals all committed murder

AS the Rev Father
Gerald Robinson

 helped conduct the funeral mass
of the elderly nun he worked alongside, he was hiding a guilty secret.

Many in the congregation were still reeling from the horrific way
71-year-old Sister Margaret Ann Pahl had died four days earlier.

Sister Pahl, who had been a nun since she was 19, was strangled and
brutally stabbed in April 1980. Her blood-soaked body was found on

Easter Saturday

 on the chapel floor of the Toledo
Mercy Hospital

 in
Ohio.

She had been getting the chapel ready for the Easter Sunday
service.

But as the petite nun, who was known for her often brisk manner,
went about her tasks as diligently as ever, she was attacked. She was
choked to death then stabbed more than 30 times. Nine of those wounds
were made in the shape of an upside-down cross.

She was found lying face up with an
altar cloth

 covering her body.
A dab of her own blood had been smeared on her forehead.

It was believed these acts were a way of mocking the nun in death
and also suggested some sort of satanic ritual had occurred.

Her clothes had also been disturbed and she had been sexually
molested in a particularly vile way to further degrade her.

After the horrific discovery, priest Robinson, who had been known
to clash with her, was questioned about her death by police, but no
charges against him were made at the time.

The grim case remained unsolved for more than 20 years and
prosecutors had given up hope of ever gaining a conviction.

But out of the blue in 2003, the police received a letter. It was
from a woman who claimed Robinson and others had sexually abused and
carried out a satanic ritual act on her when she was a child.

Although her lawsuit against Robinson for financial compensation
for what had happened to her eventually came to nothing, it triggered
the prosecutor's cold case investigators to re-open their files.

In the two decades which had passed since the murder, police
forensics had moved on. And so an elaborate letter opener examined at
the time of the nun's death which was found in the priest's
apartment was now shown to be the likely murder weapon.

It led to Robinson, then 68, being charged with Sister Pahl's
murder. Although it was 26 years since she was killed, in May 2006 a
jury returned a unanimous guilty verdict.

Compelling evidence included the fact that the culprit must have
had a close understanding of rituals in the Catholic faith because of
the gratuitous acts on the nun's body.

One theory put forward for why the priest murdered her was that he
resented the nun's
domineering
  
adj.
Tending to domineer; overbearing.

 presence at the chapel. And the
final straw was her criticism of his
Good Friday
 anniversary of Jesus' death on the cross. According to the Gospels, Jesus was put to death on the Friday before Easter Day. Since the early church Good Friday has been observed by fasting and penance.
 service which left him
seething with rage.

There were also suspicions that there was a cover-up involving
officers working on the initial case who were also strong Catholics.

In a bid to protect the name of the local diocese, it has been
suggested that a deliberate disruption was carried out by them to turn
the finger of suspicion away from Robinson, who was the prime suspect
from the start.

Robinson, who is not due to be considered for parole until 2016,
still maintains his innocence from his prison cell and has had repeated
appeals against his conviction refused.

SERHIY TKACH THE PERVERT POLICEMAN

POLICE investigator Serhiy Tkach knew all the tricks that criminals
played in order to escape being caught.

Tkach was a police officer in Siberia who moved to Ukraine in 1982.

Although he changed jobs, working in coal mines and industrial
plants, he never forgot what he had learned and, in his new country, he
put that knowledge into practice to deadly effect.

Tkach suffocated girls and young women then performed sex acts on
their bodies. All his victims were aged between eight and 18. He used
his knowledge of police procedures to avoid suspicion.

He often searched for victims near roads and railways, to make it
look as though the
perpetrator

 was from out of town. He'd escape
along railway tracks, throwing tar on them to put police dogs off the
scent.

He was able to evade capture for more than two decades. Police
hunting for the murderer sent at least nine innocent people to prison,
one of whom hanged himself.

He was finally caught after strangling his friend's daughter.
The girl's friends at the funeral recognised him as the man
they'd seen with her just before she died - and Tkach's luck
ran out.

In December 2008, after a year-long trial behind closed doors in
Dnipropetrovsk, southern Ukraine, he was convicted of 29 murders and 11
attempted murders, although he claimed to have killed around 100. Tkach
asked for the death penalty, but this had been abandoned by Ukraine so
he was sentenced to life
imprisonment

 instead.

No one really knows why he committed these terrible crimes.

One theory is that the three-times married Tkach did it as a way of
getting revenge on women. He also claimed it was to show up the
incompetence of the police.

HAROLD SHIPMAN THE DEADLY DOCTOR

HE was the popular middle-aged family GP who his patients trusted
with their lives - with devastating and tragic results.

Harold Shipman ran a one-man practice with his wife Primrose as
receptionist. He was always happy to be called out at any time, day or
night.

But instead of healing his patients in Hyde, Greater Manchester, he
hastened their deaths by injecting them with
diamorphine

.

Most, though not all, of his victims were elderly women.

In January 2000, after a three-month trial at Preston Crown Court,

Shipman
  
n.

2. A shipmaster.
 was found guilty of killing 15 patients.

Later inquiries found the total was at least 215, and possibly as
many as 250 throughout his medical career, making him the most prolific
serial killer in British history. His youngest victim was Peter Lewis,
41, and his oldest Ann Cooper, 93.

No one will ever know why he did it. Perhaps he was simply addicted
to killing. There was also a financial motive - he was caught after
attempting to forge the will of his final victim, 81-year-old Kathleen
Grundy, leaving everything to himself.

Another theory is that he became obsessed with death after his
mother died when he was 17.

Shipman was sentenced to life imprisonment and told that life would
mean life.

"Each of your victims was your patient," the judge told
him. "You murdered each and every one of them by a calculated and
coldblooded
perversion

 of your medical skills. I have little doubt that

Shipman hanged himself in Wakefield prison four years later, on the
day before his 58th birthday.

RONALD

 JANSSEN THE MODEL TEACHER

Prof shot neighbours then torched their car

RONALD Janssen was the type of teacher you'd be happy to chat
to at parents' evening.

Quiet and unassuming, he taught technical drawing at a secondary
school, where he enjoyed a
faultless
  
adj.
Being without fault. See Synonyms at perfect.



faultless·ly adv.
 reputation and was nicknamed The
Prof.

Janssen lived in the small Belgian town of Halen. He had two
daughters and, although divorced, got on well with his ex-wife.

But the teacher was responsible for a horrific crime which shocked
Belgium.

In January 2010 a young couple - Shana Appeltans, 18, and her
fiance Kevin Paulus, 22 - were shot dead in their car, which was then
set onfire.

When the trail led to Shana's neighbour Janssen, who had
fallen out with the pair about anti-social behaviour, he confessed.

He also admitted responsibility for an earlier, unsolved murder.

In 2007, 18-year-old Annick Van Uytsel had vanished after a party
which Janssen had attended.

He had beaten her to death then washed her body, wrapped it in
plastic sheeting, weighed it down with stones and thrown it into a
canal.

After his confession to the three murders, police linked him to
three other unsolved killings, with local news reports claiming he could
have committed around 15 in total.

It was reported that he told police about many more crimes in the
1990s, starting when he was a student, but couldn't remember names
or dates.

In fact he said that he had mentally blocked out details of all the
murders and didn't realise what he'd done until the police.
came knocking on his door.

In October 2011 at Tongeren Court of Assizes, Janssen, then 40, was
found guilty of all three murders and sentenced to life in prison. The
judge said he had treated his victims like objects.

"I always thought he was a kind and gentle man," his
ex-wife Nathalie said. "This killer is not the husband I
knew."
