Big Ed

Big Ed

Ed Kemper is an American serial killer and necrophile who murdered 10 people, including his paternal grandparents and mother. He befriended the very police officers investigating his murders, and would socialize with them at a bar called the “Jury Room”. They called him “Big Ed” and never suspected him. He looked absolutely terrifying at 6'9", 300 lbs. When he initially confessed, they thought he was pulling a prank. After his arrest, once he was left alone in a cell with FBI agent Robert Ressler, who was interviewing him. At the end of the conversation, Ressler hit the buzzer to summon a guard to let him out of the cell. Several minutes went by and no guard came. Kemper picked up on the agent’s unease. He said, “If I went apesh*t in here, you’d be in a lot of trouble, wouldn’t you?” Kemper said, getting up from his chair to accentuate his mass. “I could screw your head off and place on the table to greet the guard.” The guard didn’t come for 30 minutes. Ressler, however, managed to talk Kemper out of snapping his neck.
