John Robinson - THE SLAVEMASTER- personally-owned hammer *possible murder weapon*
John Robinson was convicted in 2003 after a murder spree that lasted 15 years and included the murders of at least eight women. He met several of his victims in chat rooms, and has been dubbed “The Internet’s First Serial Killer.”
All of Robinson’s victims were killed in the same manner, by one or more blows to the head with a hammer. There were two hammers found in Robinson’s tool box located in his truck. This is one of those hammers. This one was wrapped in a white cloth and had been cleaned in bleach. It had been taken as evidence by the police. The police ran tests on the hammer and the results were inconclusive, probably due to Robinson cleaning the hammers in bleach.
The details of the hammer are as follows:
Sixteen ounce BenchTop claw hammer with a light colored wood handle and metal head. Three stickers mark the handle: one with the manufacturer, one with a safety message and a barcode numbered 047486260641. Also written on the handle are police evidence markings including the date and evidence number.
Included with the hammer is the original cloth the hammer was found wrapped in as well as a certificate of authenticity guaranteeing this item to be 100% authentic as Robinson’s personally owned hammer. We cannot specifically guarantee the item to be Robinson’s murder weapon as the testing done on the hammer came back as “inconclusive”. Why would Robinson bleach the hammer unless he was covering up his crimes?
