In 1934, police finally caught up to Albert Fish. His trial lasted 10 days and fascinated the public and the press. At the end, Albert Fish was sentenced to death.

In 1917, Albert suffered a gut-wrenching loss: His wife left him and their six children. This emotional upheaval set in motion Fish’s dark side. Without the stability of a caring wife and family, his fascination with pain and suffering turned into a series of child murders.
Albert Fish became sexually involved with a young man in Wilmington, Delaware during the summer of 1910. Their relationship involved sadomasochism and ended as quickly as it began.
