I know John Wayne Glover used to visit around my town in the 1980's. His nickname was 'The granny killer'. He'd go around to old peoples homes and kill old women - supposedly he had childhood issues with his mother. He actually use to occasionally visit my friends house because my mates parents knew the guy.

He killed himself in prison.
