The first two victims of the Cleveland Torso Murderer found (graphic)

September 23, 1935
Cleveland, Ohio
Edward Andrassy and an unidentified male are found decapitated and emasculated near Jackass Hill

The headless, emasculated bodies of Andrassy and a still unidentified male were discovered roughly 30 feet from each other. Though both bodies had been found the same day, they had been murdered at separate times: Andrassy was suspected to have been murdered 2-3 days before the discovery of his body while the other man was thought to have been killed 3-4 weeks before.

Andrassy and the other man both had their heads and genitals removed, but the unidentified man also had a chemical treatment put on his skin which turned it red and leathery. The victims’ heads were presumably removed to prevent identification. However, Andrassy had a criminal record and was identified by his fingerprints. His severed head was later recovered. The identity of the Cleveland Torso Murderer was never found.
