Who's in the mood to hear about some famous Halloween murders? 

We thought you might be... 

- You could forgive a 5 year-old becoming enraged after losing a bag of trick or treatin’ sweeties and throwing a tantrum. But a 55-year-old?  Ledell Peoples lost his cool on Halloween night 2011 in a domestic disturbance in Chicago’s South Side that turned very ugly indeed. Not able to track down his bag of Hershey’s, Jolly Ranchers and Tootsie Rolls, he accused his partner, 49-year-old Maria Adams, of stealing them from him. As way of response to the accusation, she threw a plate at his head. Peoples picked up a knife and repeatedly stabbed her.  She died in hospital and her killer got 30 years. Over some sweets.

- Chucking eggs at houses and cars is a classic - if rather juvenile and annoying - Halloween prank. But after a long day at work and an evening of trick or treating with his girlfriend and her young son, 21-year-old Karl Jackson was in no mood for his car to get egged on Halloween night 1998. Unfortunately for all concerned, it was. South Bronx is a tough neighborhood, so when Karl got out of his car to remonstrate with the kid who went sunny side up on his vehicle, he took a risk. Sadly, the risk didn’t pay off. 17-year-old Curtis Sterling shot Karl in the head, killing him instantly. Sterling was arrested, charged and imprisoned for murder.  Every Halloween, Karl Jackson’s mother sends her son’s killer a card telling him she’s glad he’s rotting in prison.

- Heard the old wives’ tale of the poisoned sweets at Halloween? Supposedly given out by a crazy neighbor, the candy will kill any kid that eats it… Luckily, it’s not a real thing. Although it was once. In Texas in 1974.

Ronald Clark O’Bryan laced five Pixy-Stix with potassium cyanide and planned on killing five local kids. Among them, his son. Why? Well, the plan was to blame the poisonings on a neighbor, see him imprisoned and O’Bryan could collect the insurance policy he’d taken out on his young son.

11-year-old Timothy ate his cyanide-filled sour candy on his dad’s suggestion. It had enough poison in it to kill two people. Within an hour he was hospitalized and declared dead. Luckily for the other four children, fast-thinking and acting local detectives figured out what had happened due to the smell on young Timothy’s breath and confiscated the other Pixy-Stix before they could be consumed.

On the 31st of March 1984, Ronald Clark O'Bryan - dubbed 'The Man Who Killed Halloween' - was put to death by the state in Huntsville, Texas. As the liquid chemicals entered his veins, a baying mob of 300 locals shouted ‘Trick or treat!' and threw hard candy at a small group of anti-death penalty protesters. 

Happy Halloween!
