Bela kiss was a Hungarian serial killer “vampire” who seemed like a typical man for the time he even had 2 children. In 1912 he hired a housekeeper mrs jakubec after his wife “left him for a lover” he began seeing several young women and was a relatively popular man in his town. However,in the lead up the clusterfuck known as ww1 he started gathering large drums of oil in preparation for when the war began “der tag” as the germans called it. So when the war began on July 28th 1914 he was conscripted into the Hungarian army. Fast forward to July of 1916 the austro Hungarian forces where in dire need of supplies so the towns constable led a group of soldiers to commandeer said oil. When the drums where opened, however a suspicious odor was noted and upon further investigation a young woman’s strangled corpse was discovered along with strange marks on her neck in a vampiric fashion and upon further search of the house 23 other bodies were found with all of the woman’s corpses with the same marks and also drained of blood. A warrant for kiss’s arrest was immediately granted unfortunately kiss was still on the frontlines and his name was very common (think John smith). In October of 1916 it was reported that he was wounded and in a Serbian recovering. It doesn’t end there. Somebody tipped him off and he substituted his body with a dead comrades body and fled. He then joined the foreign legion after the war and was discovered and he fled yet again and the last agreed upon sighting of this “vampire” was im 1932 in NYC by homicide detective Henry Oswald. Kiss’s kill count remains unknown. Metal factor 8/10. So this was my first post like this so like let me know how it was.
