Martin Dumollard

Martin Dumollard was a mass murderer that spread fear throughout France in the late-nineteenth-century. He was known as the Monster of Montluel and his crimes were made even worse due to the fact that he wasn’t acting alone, he was under the strict control of his mistress Justine Lafayette. The young and handsome Dumollard met Justine while in her Lyon boardinghouse and he instantly fell under her spell.

Both Martin and Justine were necrophilia’s, people who have sex with corpses. While horrifying, that’s not vampiric. The vampirism came into play when Dumollard murdered his victims and drank their blood. He didn’t stop there, once he had his fill he would then bring home the fleshiest portions of his kills to serve to Justine. So he was the vampire and she was the cannibal.

In spite of the terror and paranoia that spread through Montluel, Martin Dumollard was able to murder over eighty girls! Yes, he drank the blood of and murdered over eighty poor victims. Luckily he and his filthy mistress were caught in 1888. Justine was executed, she was guillotined.

He knelt for a moment on the lower steps of the scaffold, and the Abbe Beroud offered to his white lips the symbol of divine mercy. Then the executioners helped him up the remaining steps, tied him to the plank, pushed the latter to its place. Quick as lightning the axe descended, and in a few seconds head and body lay together in a rude coffin ; the body to be interred in an obscure nook of the cemetery at Montluel, the head to be sent to the phrenological professors at Lyons. There was scarcely time for a trace of blood to become visible. Never was the merciful death of the guillotine more skilfully administered. Never was death punishment more richly deserved, than by the French wolf, Dumollard

To this day Martin Dumollard is known as one of the most terrible of all of the so-called vampire killers.

The Little Girl in the Cemetery

“On May 3rd, 2003, I was at Cedar Hill Cemetery in Scottsboro, AL at approximately 1:30 in the afternoon taking photos.

The sky was a dark grey and I could hear thunder rumbling not too far away. I knew it was time to wrap it up. I started to make my way back to my car when I noticed a grave I had never seen before.

It looked like a concrete slab with four-inch walls all the way around, and inside there was approximately three inches of water which reflected the name and date of the individual buried there. It was very unusual, so I took one last picture and just made it to my car in time when the skies opened up.

Later that evening, I downloaded my pictures to my computer. As I studied the unusual “water grave,” I noticed something very bright in the background of the photo. I blew up the photo and to my amazement, there was a small child (a girl I believe) looking back at me.

As an investigator, the first thing I tried to do was to debunk the photo. I thought perhaps the sun had appeared through the clouds momentarily when I snapped the picture. I soon dismissed that notion because the sun was simply not out that day. You can tell that by looking at the headstones in the photo; none of them is casting a shadow.

Next, I thought it was an optical illusion due to the light and a break in the bushes. I was nearly convinced that had to be the case except for one tiny little problem…no matter how hard I tried I could not account for the little white hand resting on the headstone before her, and over the past 10 years, neither could anyone else.”
