In Their Own Words: Belle Gunness

“There is altogether too much cunning and humbug in this land. Honesty, sincerity, and righteousness last the longest. Where they are found to be on both sides everything will be all right.”

– Serial killer Belle Gunness, in an excerpt from a love letter she wrote to Andrew Heiglein. Heiglein was lured to her LaPorte farm under the guise of marriage, robbed, and murdered.

“It’s a good thing you caught me…there was going to be a blood bath.”

– Confessed serial killer Joe Brown to Sergeant Rick Reed, Evansville PD
