Brutality, sadism, remorselessness...just a need to kill. This is Carl Eugene Watts, the Sunday Morning Slasher
What turns a man into a killer? America has become the undoubted home of the mass-murderer, playing host to many of the most famous villains in history. From John Wayne Gacy to Jeffrey Dahmer, thousands of people have fallen victim to some of the evilest men in history. So horrible are many of these crimes, that the events themselves can become blurred. Often, we overlook some of the most hideous crimes. There are legions of forgotten serial killers, people whose sadism and brutality is relegated to a footnote. This is one of those stories.
Carl Eugene Watts, Coral to his friends, was a serial killer during the latter stages of the 20th century. His crimes are forgotten by the mainstream, but he may have had a hand in the murder of over 100 women. Stalking around Michigan and Texas during the 1970s and 1980s, his family had no idea of his true nature. His friends and associates had no clue. Behind the mask of normalcy hid one of the country's most brutal killers.
In this book, we will examine the life and crimes of Coral Watts. We will learn about his background, about his history, and try to explore the reasons he might have strayed so far from the beaten path of humanity. We will look in detail at some of his crimes, especially those which formed the basis of his conviction, and try to extrapolate some greater meaning from these random acts of violence. Nicknamed the Sunday Morning Slasher, Coral Watts would prove to be one of the most vicious killers in American history.
