24-year-old Amy Brown of Edmonds, Washington, was arrested for allegedly stabbing her craigslist date in the chest. While the pair laid in a Lynwood, Washington, hotel bed, Brown reportedly kept asking her date if he was a serial killer. When he gave his last reply of ‘no’ Brown replied that she was a serial killer, and stabbed her victim in the chest. The wound was not fatal and the victim was able to escape to a nearby drug store.
When police caught up with Brown in the parking lot of the motel she reportedly told police that she was a ‘loon’ and wanted to be a serial killer. She is also said to have told police that she wanted to kill the man in order to eat his heart.
Sadly, Brown is not the first person to try to use craigslist as their own personal killing ground. A serial killer on Long Island is still at large, and they’re suspected of using craigslist in order to kill several women that advertised as prostitutes on the website.
“Craigslist: The place where serial killers are born.” Great selling point you have there.

UPDATE 10/3/2017: Brown was sentenced to 18 years behind bars.
