Gary Michael Heidnik

(November 22, 1943 - July 6, 1999) Heidnik was an American criminal who kidnapped women and kept them prisoner in his basement. He is often referred to as a serial killer, although having committed only two murders, he would not fit the standard FBI definition of a serial killer. FBI standard dictates "three or more murders" to classify as serial killer.

Beginning in November 1986, Heidnik abducted five women and held them in the basement of his house in Philadelphia. The captives were sexually abused, beaten and tortured in front of each other. When the first one died of her mistreatment, Heidnik dismembered her body. Heidnik ground it in a food-processor and mixed it with dog food, which he then fed to the surviving victims.

Captured and convicted of two counts of murder in 1988, Heidnik was sentenced to death and incarcerated at the State Correctional Institution at Pittsburgh. He was executed by lethal injection on July 6, 1999.
