Murderers that died horrific deaths behind bars proving karma is real

There are some twisted and gruesome killers out there – and whether they like it or not, karma will get them one day.

Serial killers, cannibals and rapists are rightly hated by the general public but even criminals behind bars have their hatred for certain types of offenders.

The Daily Star has taken a dive into the horrific deaths of some of the most notorious predatory murderers.

Lee Roy Martin

Lee Roy Martin, also known as “The Gaffney Strangler”, was an American serial killer in the 1960s.

By day, Martin was a happily married family man and father to three sons.

But by night, he stalked women and teenage girls along secluded roads and forced them into his car before strangling and killing them.

He would engage in necrophilia with the bodies of the four victims that were dumped in wooded areas.

On May 31, 1972, Martin was stabbed to death in prison after only serving a quarter of his sentence.

His killer was a 30-year-old fellow inmate, Kenneth Marshall Rumsey who allegedly stabbed Martin in his back and chest as he worked during his janitor assignment, killing him instantly.

James “Whitey” Bulger

Boston’s most notorious crime boss and murderer, James “Whitey” Bulger was killed behind bars on October 30th, 2018.

He was serving a sentence for his involvement in 11 murders when he was transferred from the Federal Transfer Center in Oklahoma to Hazelton, West Virginia – but he was killed less than twelve hours later.

Whitey was 89-years-old and wheelchair-bound when his two attackers wheeled him into a blind spot on the surveillance cameras and beat him to death with a padlock stuffed inside a sock.

The beating was so severe it displaced his eyeballs and prison officials said he was “unrecognisable”.

One of the main suspects behind the murder was former Mafia hitman Fotios “Freddy” Geas who was serving a life sentence for the slaying of the Genovese crime family boss in 2003.

A close friend of the Bulger family said: “I hate to be morbid, but knowing the way of person he was, it’s probably a long time coming, seeing that he was responsible for so many other families and people’s misery over the years. There’s an old saying, ‘What goes around comes around’.”

Charles Schmid

Serial child killer Charles Schmid, also known as ‘The Pied Piper of Tucson’ would lure in girls with his fast cars and then groom them for sex.

Between 1964 to 1965, he murdered three high school girls but was finally caught when his best friend Richard Bruns went to the police after Schmid had shown him the bodies of two victims he had buried in the desert.

Schmid claimed he killed them because he wanted to know what it felt like to be a killer.

Schmid met his end at the hands of two other inmates on March 10th, 1975, at Arizona State Prison.

The inmates stabbed him 47 times during the brutal attack. After losing an eye and kidney function; he later died from his injuries.

His body was stolen from the morgue but later recovered by police. His body was not kept in his casket for the funeral and he wasn't able to be buried in a public cemetery as his mother feared it would be defaced.

Jeffrey Dahmer

Jeffrey Dahmer, known as “The Milwaukee Cannibal” murdered, dismembered, and cannibalized 17 victims between 1978 to 1991.

Dahmer was finally caught when an intended victim managed to escape from the building and alert the police.

Sentenced to life behind bars, Dahmer’s sick and twisted sense of humour didn’t make him any friends at Wisconsin’s Columbia Correctional Institution.

He was known to play with his food; sculpting his dinner to look like severed limbs and using ketchup as blood.

On November 28, 1994, fellow inmate Christopher Scarver beat the cannibal killer to death with a 20-inch metal bar from a piece of gym equipment when they were left alone.

Scarver said: “He started looking for the door pretty quick. I blocked him. He ended up dead. I put his head down.”

Dahmer died from his injuries on the way to the hospital.
