Slaughtered eight nurses in July 1966 because it "just wasn't their night".
Speck lived for the next 25 years in prison where he adapted quite well: got himself a big beautiful black boyfriend, grew a pair of tits from a steady regimen of hormone injections. "If they only knew how much fun I was having in here, they would turn me loose." He died of natural causes in 1991, his ass quite a bit looser than it was back in '66.
