11 Famous Albert Fish Quotes and Sayings from the Serial Killer

Hamilton Howard “Albert” Fish, born May 19, 1870, was a notorious American serial killer, child molester, rapist and cannibal, known for his monstrous deeds from 1924 to 1928.

Known by several chilling aliases like the Gray Man, the Werewolf of Wysteria and The Boogey Man, Fish’s criminal legacy is marked by fear and revulsion.

Although a suspect in multiple murder cases, he openly confessed to three and boasted of injuring others.


Fish’s disturbing claim that he “had children in every state” and his implication of around 100 victims, although unverified, adds to his frightening image.

The nature of these alleged crimes—rape or cannibalization—remains unknown. Apprehended in 1934, he was tried and convicted for the horrifying kidnapping and murder of Grace Budd.

Albert Fish was executed by electric chair on January 16, 1936, putting an end to his reign of terror.

I have made a list of the best quotes by Albert Fish.
