As reported by The New York Post, Arthur Shawcross, who was convicted of killing 10 women between the years of 1988-1990, is searching for love from his cell in the Sullivan Correctional Facility.
Shawcross who told The New York Post that he had a few specifics in mind when it came to finding his true love from afar. Working on his 6th wife, Shawcross told The New York Post, “I do prefer blondes, redheads and platinum women over the rest, but will accept someone from any race who might be smart, have a good job and is not destitute.”
Shawcross also added that the woman must live within the area of the Sullivan Correctional Facility, and they should be between the ages of 24 -100, as reported by The New York Post.
Arthur Shawcross who is also known as the “Genesee River Killer” terrorized Monroe County, New York between the years of 1988 – 1990. Before moving to Monroe County, he had lived in Watertown, New York for many years, and been married 4 times already. By May of 1972, Shawcross murdered 10 year-old Jake Blake by luring him into the woods, where he assaulted and strangled him to death.
Not four months later Shawcross would rape and kill 8 year-old Karen Ann Hill. Shawcross who was arrested for these crimes, confessed to both of the murders, but obtained a plea bargain with the prosecutors. Shawcross who plead guilty to killing only Karen Hill would get manslaughter instead of first-degree murder, and the murder of Jake Blake would be dropped. He was then given a 25 year sentence, then released on parole in March 1987, just 15 years later.
Then in March of 1988, Shawcross was up to his old tricks again. But this time he did not kill children, this time he went after prostitutes. 11 women, whom he strangled, beat with over kill intended, and most of the time mutilated. Three of the 11 victims that Shawcross murdered, were mutilated by having their vagina cut off of their body, for Shawcross to eat as a treat. His victims included, Patricia Ives 25, Frances Brown 22, June Cicero 34, Darlene Trippi 32, Anne Marie Steffen 28, Dorothy Blackburn 27, Kimberly Logan, June Stotts 30, Marie Welch 22, Elizabeth Gibson and the his final victim, Dorthy Keller.
Arthur Shawcross who over the years raped and murdered 13 people, sits in his cell waiting for a conjugal visit when he finds what he is looking for. As he ended his interview with The New York Post, he simply said, “I want hugs and kisses, touchy-feely,”
