Joseph Kallinger dies in prison from an epileptic seizure
Kallinger and his 13-year-old son Michael (who has since completed reformatory school and changed his name) carried out a 6-week crime spree involving theft, torture, rape, and murder. In total, Kallinger killed 3 people: a young boy who was playing on a playground alone who was found dead and sexually mutilated; his own son who was drowned in a bathtub in an abandoned building; and a nurse held captive with 7 others who was sexually assaulted and stabbed when she refused to bite the penis off of another hostage.
Kallinger spent the last 11 years of his life on suicide watch after attempting suicide numerous times including frying an egg on his head (he doused himself with lighter fluid, lit himself on fire, then cracked an egg on his head). He died at the age of 59 of a seizure.
