    People are in love with the idea of the “doctor as serial killer” due to alleged surgical skills demonstrated in countless unsolved slayings. Notice these theories are never proven in any of the cases. In this particular case there’s zero evidence Sweeney was actually involved in any of the murders. The New Castle murders were almost certainly not committed by him and it seems wildly unlikely they’re unrelated given the signatures and details. Further a serial killer this prolific would have committed a ton of crime before becoming a killer. Sweeney would have had to avoid the law for decades. I dont think he did it.

    Do you think the Torso murderer is the also the murderer of the black Dahlia? They both cut the body in half, they drain the blood of their dead victims body, both murderers have knowledge of anatomy, both leave their victims out in public places for people to easily spot. It seems so similar.

    7:00 - the same case guys - You are referring to Languille. This one is still debated if it counts as proof. *Fights the urge to throw up as I write this* until we attach some form of neuro reading machinery to a freshly decapitated human head we will never know for sure. I pray we never get so cold blooded that we decide to find out.

    Shane is remembering Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier,
    A famous scholar and scientist whom the French Revolution executed as things started to really get out of control. (He contributed to the creation of the metric system, among other things)
    Biographers can't establish if it is a legend or a real anecdote, but the story is that he promised his colleagues to blink for as long as he was able for them.
    There are numerous legends from the Terror about guillotined heads moving. Perhaps the most famous is about Charlotte Corday, the women who murdered the revolutionary, Marat, in his bathtub and then waited patiently to be arrested.
    The story goes that afterwards, the executioner held her head up by the hair and slapped her, and she looked at him and emoted outrage.
    Ghastly subject, this, though. I don't think I can watch the rest of this one, eugh.

    It's Sweeney. Otherwise, why would he taunt Ness? There's no point in doing that unless he was actually the killer.

    Okay but, it terms of the lie detector, you really can’t take it seriously. If he was in a mental hospital, he probably would have been on heavy anti-psychotics. If he was forced to go cold turkey, he would have been going through intense withdrawal symptoms for up to two weeks. And withdrawal symptoms are often marked by increased sweat and heart rate.

    It’s possible to hang yourself from an object you’re taller than. The reason is that you are hanging yourself around your neck. Which means that doesn’t include the added height that your head adds to you. So his height not including his head is shorter than the rope is.
