OriginEdit

Harvey Murray Glatman (1927 - 1959) was an American serial killer active during the late 1950s who went by the moniker "The Lonely Hearts Killer." More often than not he used pseudonyms while posing as a professional photographer to lure his victims with the promise of a modelling career. Arriving in LA, California in 1957 he started trolling around modeling agencies looking for potential victims. He would contact girls with offers of work for pulp fiction magazines (such as Marvel Tales), take them back to his apartment, tie them up and sexually assault them. All throughout he would take pictures as a trophy of sorts. Afterwards he would strangle them and dump their bodies in the desert.

Three of his more well known victims were models Judith Dull, Ruth Mercado and Shirley Ann Bridgeford, the later he met through a Lonely Hearts ad in the newspaper. While going after his fourth victim a policeman saw him struggling with a woman on the side of the road and arrested him. Glatman willingly confessed to the other murders and upon searching his house officers discovered a toolbox with the pictures of the victims he had taken. During his trial he was declared guilty and sentenced to death, being executed by gas chamber in 1959.
