Dubbed “the Internet’s first serial killer”, John Edward Robinson killed eight young women whom he met on the Internet to fulfill his lust as a self-proclaimed “slave master.”
On June 2, 2000, Robinson was arrested inside his house in Kansas, after two of his “slaves” had filed battery and theft complaints against him. Robinson appeared visibly nervous as the police searched for evidence inside his home.
Photographs found on Robinson's computer revealed his deep interest in sadomasochism. He also had photos of his bound victims.
The task force then shifted their focus to Robinson's storage locker. Upon arrival, detectives immediately found pictures and documents of missing women from the 1980s.
Investigators also found sex toys, slave contracts, envelopes addressed to the missing women’s relatives, and blank sheets of paper signed with the names of the missing women.
With a wealth of evidence in their possession, the following day, accompanied by three search-and-rescue dog teams, police visited Robinson’s 17-acre farm.
The search eventually led investigators to the barrels near a shed.
