Charles "Carl" Panzram was an American serial killer, rapist, arsonist, robber and burglar. In prison confessions and in his autobiography, Panzram claimed to have committed 21 murders and more than 1,000 acts of sodomy of boys and men.
One of Panzram’s most brutal murders involved hiring six men to work on a boat with him, shooting them, and then feeding them to crocodiles. In his autobiography, he wrote, “For all of these things, I am not the least bit sorry.”
Panzram was officially hanged on September 5, 1930. As officers attempted to place a customary black hood over his head, he allegedly spat in the executioner’s face.
When asked for any last words, he responded, "Yes, hurry it up, you Hoosier bastard! I could kill a dozen men while you’re screwing around!"
He was buried in the Leavenworth Penitentiary Cemetery, where his grave is marked only with his prison number, 31614.
