Carl Panzram (June 28, 1891 - September 5, 1930) was a prolific child thief who quickly advanced to rape and murder. He confessed to killing 21 people, including children, in the U.S. and Africa although only four were ever proven. Condemned to death by hanging, Panzram told his executioner, "Hurry it up, you Hoosier bastard! I could kill 10 men while you're fooling around!"
