Real Evil - The Handcuff Man

Real Evil - The Handcuff Man

Serial killers get all the attention, but there are other strange serial criminals worth a look at.  Like serial groin arsonist the Handcuff Man.

From around 1968 to 1991, the Handcuff Man approached male prostitutes and hustlers and offered to pay them to take a drink, often saying it was part of a medical study.  The drinks were drugged, and the victims would wake up handcuffed with their laps on fire.  The total number victims is unknown, as he targeted a population afraid to go to the police.
