16 Serial Killer's Last Meals On Death Row

16 Serial Killer's Last Meals On Death Row


Whatever it is that keeps us perpetually fascinated with Serial Killers, it certainly doesn't stop at their Last Meal. Maybe we want to compare it to our own favorite feasts, wondering if there is a psychopath somewhere deep inside of us? Maybe we just have a weird thing for knowing the little details that compose some of the world's most horrible villains. The reality of the little details is relentlessly fascinating, though. What leads these people to their crimes? And what is the meal they want to leave this world enjoying? Some of history's most famous serial killers are on this list and you'll be surprised by some of their demands. 

1. Joe Arridy


Perhaps the most depressing name on the list is 23-year old Joe Arridy who was mentally disabled with an IQ in the 40's and falsely accused and convicted of the rape and murder of a 15-year-old schoolgirl. He was executed via the gas chamber in 1939 and then was posthumously pardoned 72 years after his death in 2011. His last meal was requested as ice cream.

2. Danny Rolling


"The Gainsville Ripper" was a serial killer responsible for the deaths of 5 students in Florida in the early 1990s. Before being executed in 2006 by lethal injection, Rolling was served lobster tail, butterfly shrimp, baked potato, strawberry cheesecake, and sweet tea.

3. Aileen Wuornos


After murdering 7 men as a prostitute between 1989 and 1990 by shooting them, Aileen was executed via lethal injection in 2002. Before her execution, Wuornos declined to have a special last meal, and opted for a burger and snacks from the prison canteen instead. Later, she also had a cup of coffee.
