<b>Every year, we look back in horror at the sheer evil mankind is capable of, and 2017 was no different.</b><br /><br />Across the world, but particularly in the United States, startlingly horrific crimes have almost become commonplace, causing us to double-lock our doors at night and look over our shoulders, wondering if we’re safe, no matter how crowded or well-lit our location is.<br /><br />In this true crime release, we’ve compiled some of the most gripping and gruesome crime stories of 2017. Some of the horrible stories you will read about includes: <br /><br /><ul><li>A Florida serial killer stalked a close-knit suburb of Tampa, killing Seminole Heights residents seemingly at random.</li><li>A member of a neo-Nazi organization used his vehicle to kill a protestor in Charlottesville, Virginia, more than 50 years after the world defeated Hitler’s racist rise to power.</li><li>A couple was sentenced to death for brutalizing a 10-year-old girl for years, beating her, depriving her of food, forcing her to walk on the hot pavement of a sizzling summer in Arizona, only to let her die in an airtight box overnight, her punishment for eating a Popsicle without asking after sweltering in 115-degree heat.</li><li>Two young girls were smart enough to record pictures and audio of a man suspected in their deaths, evidence that will hopefully soon solve their murders.</li><li>A blood-soaked man carried his mother’s decapitated head into a grocery store, attacking a clerk and stabbing him as well before being apprehended from police.</li><li>The UK was rocked by terrorist bombings that turned joyous moments deadly in an instant.</li><li>The death of Charles Manson gave us an opportunity to look back at the bloody mayhem inspired by a murderous man with a messiah complex.</li></ul>Keep the lights on, Dear Reader, and welcome to 2017’s most horrifying true stories. <br /><br />
