William Heirens was a serial killer who murdered 3 people between June 1945 and January 1946. He is especially well known for the message left at the crime scene of his second victim, shown in the first image, where he said:

For heavens sake catch me before I kill more I cannot control myself.

He was not captured after this crime, and instead went on to kidnap, murder and dismember a 6 year old girl named Suzanne Degnan. He stole her from her bedroom, having her call in and tell her mother she was fine when her mother awoke from the disturbance of his break in, and left a ransom note for $20,000. He had no intention of ever returning the girl to her mother, and instead her decapitated head was discovered in the catch basin pictured in the second image, with other body parts in different catch basins, drains and sewers nearby.
