Edward Small, born on 1990-05-09 in Hempstead, New York. He lived in an orphanage until the age of 5, until he was transferred to foster parents. His foster mother was a veterinary doctor, his foster father was a baker. He is 6’3″ and 189 lbs. He is left-handed.
His education was based on atonement. Everyone is a sinner and sins must be punished. As a child he dreamed of becoming a dancer. He told this to a classmate who ridiculed him for it, and so he promised himself not to tell anyone about his desires anymore.
He was a daring kid, he questioned everything. His grades were bad, studying was difficult for him. At the age of 13 he witnessed an old lady being hit by a train. The sight of her deformed body fascinated him.
In the months after he finished high school he felt intoxicated. He felt as if a huge weight was taken off of him and he wished for even more freedom. At the age of 19 he was admitted to a psychiatric unit after an aggressive episode. When he was 23 he met a woman whom he married after 11 months. She is unaware to this day of her husband’s secret identity.
At present he lives in a run-down house next to Santa Cruz, California. He has gotten himself into significant debts in the past years. He drives a black Suzuki. He has only a few friends. People who know him describe him as absent-minded.
He committed his first murder at the age of 27. Since then, he has committed 20 murders. His victims are hard to profile, he randomly murders women, men, children and elders alike. He observes the people and selects his victims while hanging around schools and playgrounds. Initially he used to strangle his victims with his bare hands, but because of the wounds and bruises his victims caused on his hands as they tried to defend themselves, he started using a rope instead. He looks down on everyone and considers his actions to be a favor to the world. He taxidermies the corpses and lives with them. He leaves a ton of clues every time to increase the chances of him getting caught.
