About Albert Fish

Hamilton Howard 'Albert' Fish (May 19, 1870 January 16, 1936) was an American serial killer. He was also known as the Gray Man, the Werewolf of Wysteria, the Brooklyn Vampire, the Moon Maniac and The Boogey Man. A child rapist and cannibal, he boasted that he 'had children in every state,' and at one time put the figure at around 100. However, it is not clear whether he was talking about rapes or cannibalization, less still whether he was telling the truth. He was a suspect in at least five murders in his lifetime. Fish confessed to three murders that police were able to trace to a known homicide, and he confessed to stabbing at least two other people. He was put on trial for the kidnapping and murder of Grace Budd, and was convicted and executed by electric chair. He was born Hamilton Howard Fish in Washington, D.C. on May 19, 1870, to Ellen (1838-?) and Randall Fish (1795October 16, 1875). His mother was born in Ireland.
