Carte de visite 
George Eastman Museum

If the information on this carte is true, it raises a macabre point about social behavior why would a person purchase an image of a murderer? Today electronic media has taken this phenomenon to levels unimaginable in the nineteenth century with movies about serial killers and websites that contain outright lies about history and promote hate against minority groups. [George Eastman House]
 
A copy of this carte de visite is held by the Newberry Library in Chicago (Edward E. Ayer Photograph Collection, Call Number AP 2620, Box 75)
