"The women I killed were filth - bastard prostitutes who were littering the streets. I was just cleaning up the place a bit" - Peter Sutcliffe, the ‘Yorkshire Ripper.’

Ted Bundy never recovered from his break-up with his first girlfriend, Stephanie Brooks. Nothing, including school, seemed to hold any interest for him and he eventually dropped out, dumb-founded and depressed over the break-up. He managed to stay in touch with her by writing after she returned to California, yet she seemed uninterested in getting back together. But Ted became obsessed with this young woman and he couldn’t get her out of his mind. It was an obsession that would span his lifetime and lead to a series of events that would shock the world.
Pictures taken at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV. Formerly known as the Weston State Hospital (built in the mid 1800’s). I took these photos on a trip to West Virginia in the summer of 2011. The 4th and 5th pictures in the series are of a small storage unit used to temporarily hold the bodies of patients who passed away at the hospital.
Apparently at its height the hospital was a big source of revenue for the town. Since its closure a couple decades ago, the town has fallen into a horrible state of disrepair and driving through Weston to get to the hospital left us feeling a tad unsettled. An amazing building to visit and tour through, however.

The brain tissue (from the cracked girl’s head) was splattered on the floor of the mall. We guess this Indonesian girl died instantly of severe brain injury. (x)
