Publisher's Summary

To the average American, there was nothing out of the ordinary about Edmund Kemper before 1973. Standing at six-foot-nine, the young man was a giant, but he was gentle, soft spoken, and shy. He lived with his mother into his mid-20s and frequented local bars, cozying up to police officers - a job he had once hoped to hold himself but couldn’t since he was too tall. This was one reality of Kemper's life - the reality he wanted those around him to see. There was another side to the man though, a much darker side. Kemper's actions in his life shocked America, who dubbed him the Co-Ed Killer for his urge to murder and violate co-ed girls in Northern California.

Story - 4/5

"Edmund Kemper: The Life of the Co-Ed Killer" by Hourly History is actually a quite good, but fairly brief history of the killer.

Very interesting because it gives one a pretty good idea how this giant was driven insane, and why he did what he did.

“When I see a pretty girl walking down the street, I think two things. One part wants to be real nice and sweet, and the other part wonders what her head would look like on a stick.”

Recommendation- for True Crime aficionados who are interested in the criminal mind.

Too short. Hardhitting research or depth.

Basically, someone reads a Wki page. Very short. Not worth the money. Read Deviant on Ed Gein. Far more interesting.

I had to hear it!

After watching Mindhunter I just had to hear more about Kemper. This short insight was just the perfect dose.
