Online Killers

Online Killers

By Christopher Berry-Dee

Take a cyber journey where the flicker of LCD screens illuminates unimaginable evil.


It starts as a harmless online-date, but can quickly turn to kidnap, torture and death. More than just tales of sinister criminals, this collection of true horror stores destroys commonly held myths, like “it’s safe to meet someone after knowing them online for many months.” Predators actually gain additional satisfaction from stalking their victims over long periods of time!


Online Killers chronicles the stories of men, women and children whose internet adventures led them into disastrous circumstances, including:


•Naïve 15-year-old Christina Long, whose meeting with a much older man from a chat room led to her rape and murder
•Schoolteacher Jane Longhurst, the victim of an obsessive necrophiliac who abused her decomposing body for weeks
•Bernd-Jurgen Brandes, who was not only killed and eaten by a cannibal, but had the whole process immortalized on video
•Young and beautiful Anastasia Solovyonva, the would-be bride who was brutally murdered at the hands of her supposed fiancé
