Weeks after Graham Young arrived at Broadmoor, fellow inmate John Berridge died of cyanide poisoning. This was the same Berridge that Winifred Young says Graham complained about in letters, expressing irritation at his loud snoring in the communal dorms. Nevertheless, the authorities were baffled, as there was no cyanide to be found anywhere in the prison and there was no reason for it to ever be brought into Broadmoor, so the verdict of his death was ruled as a suicide. Young claimed to have extracted cyanide from laurel bush leaves that grew around the hospital boundary, but his confession was not taken seriously. On other occasions staff and inmates’ drinks were found to have been tampered with, including the discovery that someone had dumped Harpic into the coffee pot after noticing their coffee smelled of bleach.There was no mystery as to where that came from, the hospital had large stocks of it, and by then there wasn’t any mystery about who had done it either. From then on, staff would joke to inmates, “Unless you behave, I’ll let Graham make your coffee.” Nearly six years into his sentence, two whole packets of “sugar soap,” a cleanser used to wash down the walls before painting, went missing, and the contents were later found in the communal tea urn, which could have caused mass poisoning had it not been discovered. Graham continued to read widely about poisoning and worked to keep his obsession increasingly well hidden, when authorities made it clear that appearing less obsessed would speed up his release. By the late 1960’s Young’s doctors seemed oblivious to his continued fatal fascination and recommended, in June 1970, that he be released as he had been ‘cured’. Young celebrated by informing a psychiatric nurse that he intended to kill one person for every year he had been in Broadmoor; the comment was recorded on his file but, amazingly, never influenced the decision to release him.

Above is school shooter Pekka-Eric Auvinen, who killed 8 people at a high school in southern Finland. He attempted to commit suicide instantly by shooting himself in the head, but failed. He died in a hospital hours later from the gunshot wound to the head. The shooting occurred on November 7th, 2007. Auvinen was named afterward the Youtube Killer, because he had uploaded videos to the site, one of which displaying him shooting his gun.

“I’ve got to show them that I can stand up in a court of law and run these people ragged. That I’m not a fiend, necessarily. That’s not all there is to me. I’ve got to show them that I’m more. That’s really important to me, that I’m more.”

Seung Hui Cho, shooter in the Virginia Tech Massacre which left a total of 33 people dead. Before going on a rampage, Cho mailed a package containing the photos above and him speaking in a video. Below are some excerpts from the video.

You had a hundred billion chances and ways to have avoided today. But you decided to spill my blood. You forced me into a corner and gave me only one option. The decision was yours. Now you have blood on your hands that will never wash off. You had everything you wanted. Your Mercedes wasn’t enough, you brats. Your golden necklaces weren’t enough, you snobs. Your trust funds wasn’t enough. Your vodka and cognac wasn’t enough. All your debaucheries weren’t enough. Those weren’t enough to fulfill your hedonistic needs. You had everything. You have vandalized my heart, raped my soul and torched my conscience. You thought it was one pathetic boy’s life you were extinguishing. Thanks to you, I die like Jesus Christ, to inspire generations of the weak and the defenseless people.”
