Bloody Murder 10 - The Alexandria Eight and Jurgen Bartsch

April 24, 2017

The Alexandria Eight and Jurgen Bartsch...

In Sydney in the 1980's to early 90's up to eighty homosexual men were murdered by roaming gangs of youths who considered “poofter bashing” to be a national sport. One of these gangs, nicknamed the Alexandria 8, took particular delight in participating in these heinous hate crimes. They'd brag to their friends about ambushing and brutally attacking the men and collected newspaper headlines as trophies.

Jurgen Bartsch was a teenage German serial killer in the 1960’s. Adopted by a clean-freak mother who bathed him several times a day until he was 19 and a father who mostly ignored him, Jurgen was also sexually abused by a master at a strict Catholic boarding School. Did these factors contribute to his penchant for torturing, sexually assaulting and murdering young boys or was he just a sick fuck?
