Ed Kemper is an absolute beast of a man - and not only because he was responsible for killing (and in some cases, the kidnapping, rape, murder and dismemberment) of ten women, including his own mother and grandmother.
The Co-Ed Killer is one of the biggest serial killers in history, towering over everyone he encountered, from his female victims to the police officers who eventually arrested him and the guards who escorted him to his trial and later to prison.
The way that he dwarfed the other people in court when he faced a jury on eight counts of murder in October 1973 show the striking difference in size between him and the average American of that time. In comparison, Jeffrey Dahmer's height would have barely brought him to Ed Kemper's shoulder.
