On December 19, 1988, Berdella pled guilty to one count of first and to an additional four counts of second-degree murder for the deaths of other victims.There were attempts by various media organizations to try to connect the crimes of Berdella to the idea of a national underground satanic group but the investigators responded that over 550 people were interviewed and at no point was there any indication that the crimes were connected to a satanic ritual or group.The police placed Berdella in custody and searched his home where 357 photographs of victims in various positions of torture were recovered.Also found were torture devices, occult literature, ritual robes, human skills and bones and a human head in Berdella’s yard.Follow the simple instructions below and you’ll soon get the hang of it. They fall into three distinct types, commonly known as period one(1770-1800), two (1800-1825) and three(1825-1860). Whereas period one corner decoration tends to be simple gold scrollwork OR little flowers, fruit or the occasional bird, period two dials TEND to have either geometric shapes, or shells, or abstract patterns – usually with a little more colour than period one.This dial is typical of about 1800: I can’t stress strongly enough – these people are NOT CLOCKMAKERS , they are the people who made the dials which the clockmakers used.

He quickly decided on a change of careers and studied to be a chef.
It was during this time that his fantasies about torture and murder began to fester.
The clockmaker’s name is usually on the dial, but the dialmaker’s name is often stamped on the reverse of the dial or cast into the “falseplate”.
Where two dialmakers’ names are stamped there, it is often when one maker took over the unused stock of another and a very useful guide indeed for dating a dial.He got some relief by torturing animals, but only for a short time.
