Company looks to cash in on Flint ‘serial stabber’ memorabilia

FLINT, MI – An online dealer is looking to cash in on one of Flint’s most notorious killers.

Florida-based Serial Killers Ink is selling what it claims are letters, drawings, photos and a greeting card from alleged serial stabber Elias Abuelazam.

Abuelazam was convicted in 2012 of first-degree murder for the Aug. 2, 2010, killing of Arnold Minor. He also was charged in two other fatal stabbings and six assault with intent to murder cases in the Flint area, but prosecutors dismissed the cases following his sentence of life in prison without parole for the Minor killing.

In total, he was suspected of 18 attacks that resulted in five killings across three states. He also has admitted to stabbing another person in his hometown of Ramla, Israel.

His case received international attention and Abuelazam has continuously attempted to get his conviction overturned, in part due to the pre-trial

Accused mass murderer Dylann Roof is “doing fine” in the slammer but could use some reading material, according to a jail note he may have sent to a pen pal.

The handwritten letter, which bears the signature of the South Carolina man suspected of gunning down nine people in a black Charleston church, recently surfaced on an online auction site, where it’s selling for $1,000, Radar Online first reported.

“My health and spirit are doing fine,” Roof allegedly writes. “Thanks for writing me, I appreciate your letter. It is nice to recieve (sic) mail in jail. Most people probably would be too scared to send me a letter.”

Lincoln, NE – Drawings done by executed serial killer John Joubert in the 1980s remain out of public view while the Nebraska Supreme Court decides if the artwork should be released to an author updating his account of the notorious murder case.

Joubert told onetime Omaha television reporter Mark Pettit about the sketches during a series of death row interviews. At least two drawings purportedly depict Joubert’s violent fantasies against young boys.

Pettit, who hopes to update his book “A Need to Kill” with information about the drawings, has been denied access by the Nebraska Department of Corrections (NDCS). He claims the work is “significant from a

BTK letters from prison sold on serial killer true crime collectible website – KSN

WICHITA, Kansas – Most people want to move on with their lives when it comes to the name Dennis Rader, but a website is bringing back memories of the case.

It’s selling letters Rader recently sent from the El Dorado Correctional Facility.

KSN reached out to the website selling his letters.

The owner of the website called “Dark Vomit, True Crime” says he has an interest in reading about serial killers. So he posted several letters from Rader in prison for sale online. The prices vary, but the most cost up to $300. We wanted to know if Rader himself can make any profit off of this sale. The website owner tells us no.

He says he has not had any communication with Rader himself, and none of the money would go to Rader. He says he got the letters from someone who was writing to Rader in prison.
