Crime: Romulus Veres was a vicious and brutal serial killer, often called 'the man with the hammer'.
Biography: Born in 1929, Romulus was infamous for the murders he was first connected and then charged with in the 1970s. He was, amazingly, never imprisoned for his acts due to his pleading on grounds of insanity. In fact, the media didn't ever give him a lot of coverage, even though he was a sadistic and habitual killer. Many 'legends' and alternate histories have placed the total number of his victims in the hundreds, but it is safe to say this was not the case.
