I had many people send me this and ask me if this is real. The answer is NO NO NO–They never read the last sentence LOLOL
DID YOU KNOW….
That the Horror Film Character Freddy Kruger was based on a real life serial killer who lived in Almonte, Ontario in the 1800s. According to court county records of the time, Mr. Kruger was known to have killed at least twenty children within a three mile radius of where he lived. He reportedly murdered most of the children using only a Gardening claw. He had an old abandoned logging factory north of Ottawa where he would bring his victims.
Having set up a small living space (and torture area) within the “mechanical room” of the facility. Oh yeah…back then, a “mechanical room” was also known as a “boiler room”. Mr. Kruger was eventually caught by his own recourse by accidentally starting a fire in a portion of the factory where he burned over 70% of his body.
While in the hospital recovering, Police investigated and he was arrested after they found his room of horrors. He was tried, but found to be criminally insane and spent the rest of his life in a Psychiatric Hospital in Ottawa, Ontario before dying in his sleep at the old age of 72. But shortly after his death a string of unexpected deaths occurred in Almonte involving young teenagers and children while they were sleeping in their beds. Before they died a few parents said their children would wake up in the middle of the night from the night terrors to what they called a burned and scary old man with a claw was trying to kill them. They refused to go back to sleep….we now know why….
To this day (and LONG before the Elm St. films) this story circulates every Halloween, and every Halloween someone asks me if it’s true. Actually, I just found this picture and made all this up…….shared, so share away…..
Halloween is almost here everyone
