Patrick Wayne Kearney had a grudge. The American serial killer had been small and scrawny as a kid, and his classmates bullied him mercilessly. As a result, Kearney took his rage out on young men who either made the mistake of hitching a ride with him or catching his eye at a gay bar or bathhouse. In the process, he became one of the most prolific serial killers in California history.
This serial killer biography goes behind the scenes, exploring the background that led to Kearney’s horrific acts as well as the swath of death that the man who would become known as the Trash Bag Killer would carve across California.
In the world of true crime murder, Kearney was a monster who preyed upon unsuspected boys and young men, and after they were dead, he used their bodies for sexual satisfaction before dismembering them and bagging them neatly up in industrial-size garbage bags.
With the innocent looks of an accountant, Kearney seemed like a normal guy, if you didn’t hear the gunshots – or happen to look out your window while the serial killer was taking out the trash.
In the 1970s, this serial killer had California on edge. Today, Kearney’s true crime story will have you on the edge of your seat, wondering how one man could so easily conjure up the devil and bring him so dreadfully to life.
Disturbing, fascinating and intriguing…all in one! By Piaras July 4, 2016
This is yet another biopic read that’s really hard to put down. It’s an insightful and graphically detailed account of some of the most horrific serial killers. In fact, while reading yet another of Jack Rosewoods books, I just had to keep turning the pages yet again. Not necessarily because it’s all that enjoyable in any way, shape or form, to delve a little too deeply into the malefic minds of such murderous men, but because I sincerely believe that most people are fascinated in one way or another by serial killers. Perhaps it’s the human morbid fascination with death. I’m not exactly sure. However, maybe it just astounds the average person as to how depraved another individual can be.
Even if you are a seasoned campaigner of true crime, Patrick Kearney: The True Story of The Freeway Killer; will surely raise more than a few hairs on the back of your neck. It was a good read and the author gave a perspective to these horrific crimes that were both fascinating and intriguing. This was one of the better true crime books that I have read recently.
I would highly recommend this read to all fans of the crime genre. I’m also a big fan of Jack Rosewood so it’s another 5 Stars from me. Well done again!
