Hardback. Donald "Pee Wee" Gaskins had all the makings of a serial killer as a child. When he became an adult, he earned the title as the most prolific serial killer in the history of South Carolina. Gaskins tortured, killed and at times then ate his victims. His crimes were horrific. This story begins when the world was made aware of South Carolina's mass murderer with the discovery of the first 6 bodies buried in three shallow graves in a pine thicket, and the inquest that was held for the victims. The rest of the story winds around some of his odd childhood and villainous adulthood. The decision of the author was to keep the dates as correct as possible and in numerical order as the crimes happened and the bodies were recovered. While on death row Gaskins told his life story to a journalist, in which he confessed to having committed between 100-110 murders. It was, however, impossible to verify all his claims. Gaskins was eventually executed on September 6, 1991. Illus., Index. 206pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Pictorial glazed covers. F. Scarce.
