    Abstract

    The murder of a child by an adult, especially a parent, is one of the most difficult crimes for the public or a physician to understand. Such murders are usually isolated events committed in the heat of passion or insanity. Rarely, however, one encounters an individual who deliberately and systematically murders children over a long period of time for no logical reason. Here is presented a case of an alleged habitual child murderer whose career apparently spanned 23 years.
