Terry Blair
Terry Blair (born September 16, 1961) is an American serial killer who raped and killed at least seven women in Kansas City, Missouri.

Terry Blair was born into a family which would have many encounters with the criminal justice system. He was the fourth eldest of 10 siblings, born to a mother who had only finished the 9th grade and suffered from mental illness.

While in jail for a separate incident, brother Walter Blair Jr met a man who offered to pay him $6,000 to kill Katherine Jo Allen so she could not testify at his rape trial. Blair confessed to abducting Allen from her apartment before taking her to a vacant lot and shooting her. He was convicted of murder and was executed in 1993.

Half brother Clifford Miller was convicted in the 1992 abduction of a woman from a bar. He shot the woman in the arm and drove her to an abandoned house before raping her repeatedly and beating her until she passed out. She suffered a gunshot wound, fractured skull, broken jaw and broken cheek bones. She spent two months in the hospital, recovering. Clifford Miller was sentenced to two life sentences plus 240 years for charges including kidnapping and forcible sodomy.

Terry's mother Janice Blair fatally shot Elton E. Gray, but was sentenced to probation after entering an Alford plea.

In 1982, the pregnant Angela Monroe, mother of two of Blair's children, was murdered. Blair was sentenced to 25 years imprisonment for this murder. He was released on parole after serving 21 years. According to court records he was angry with Monroe for performing acts of prostitution.

October 15, 2004, Terry Blair was charged with eight counts of first-degree murder, one count of first-degree assault, and three counts of forcible rape. Two of the murder charges were dropped in October 2003. The rape and assault charges were also dropped.

The murders came to light when a caller informed 911 of dead bodies and claimed responsibility for the killings. The caller stated that the reason the individuals were killed was that they were prostitutes and therefore they were "scum". Investigators were not able to tie Blair to the phone, but established that the calls were made from near where he lived. Linguistics testimony was introduced, and the finder of fact came to believe the voice was Blair's.

Although the evidence was mainly circumstantial, Blair's semen was found on one victim. Blair's defense was that this item of evidence only proved he had engaged in sex with the victim; the prosecution countered that since she hadn't tidied herself up afterwards, he must have been the last to see her alive. Because Blair continues to deny responsibility for the crimes, his motive cannot be understood beyond a compulsion to kill prostitutes.

Prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty in exchange for Blair waiving his right to a jury trial. Blair was found guilty by Judge John O'Malley on March 27, 2008. For these six murders he was sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole.

Blair is currently housed in the Potosi Correctional Center in Mineral Point, Missouri.

Blair appealed his conviction, but his appeal was denied by the Missouri Court of Appeals in August, 2009.

So, a book in the mail came from amazon today signed by Jeffrey Dahmer's apartment manager. Interesting surprise considering I only spent $4 total on the book.
