Name : John Wayne Glover

 

Details :

 


Category: Serial Killing

Location: Australia

Date: 1989 - 1990

Crime: Known as the 'Granny Killer' for killing at least 6 elderly women near Sydney, Australia's North Shore over a fourteen month period between 1989 and 1990. Fifteen years into his life sentence, he hanged himself in his prison cell.

Biography: Originally born in Wolverhampton, England on November 26, 1932, into a working class family, Glover spent his youth committing petty crimes. After joining the British Army, he was quickly thrown out after they discovered his criminal past. This drove him to emigrate to Australia in 1956, where he settled down in Melbourne. Throughout his life, Glover had troubled relationships with older women, including his own mother. In the early 1960's, Glover was convicted of assaulting women and causing bodily harm. The attacks were considered quite severe as the women were thrown to the ground and had their clothing torn off. Remarkably, he only received a probationary sentence for these crimes. The first evidence of a Glover murder, didn't arise until 1989 at which point he had been married for 20 years. This occurred in March of 1989, when he attacked an elderly women and beat her to death with a hammer. He struck again two months later and killed another elderly woman in the same manner. Over the course of the next several months, through the summer and fall of 1989, Glover began sexually assaulting elderly women in various nursing homes. He was questioned by staff in one of the attacks but not in the others. Late in October of 1989, he followed an elderly woman home to her residence in a retirement community and bashed her face repeatedly into the brick wall outside her front door. The woman survived but was unable to give the police a description of her assailant. In November, he killed three more times using a blunt instrument to bash in his victim's skull each time. In January 1990, Glover was caught after touching an elderly cancer patient in a sexually inappropriate manner. He ran from the scene but was identified by staff. After being questioned by police, Glover was put under constant surveillance. Finally in March, Glover killed his sixth victim, while under police surveillance. He entered the home of an elderly acquaintance
and after 3 hours with no visible activity, the police became concerned and finally entered the house. They found the naked woman in a pool of blood, wrapped in towels. They then found Glover unconscious in a filled bathtub, apparently from an overdose of Valium. He survived the suicide attempt and ultimately confessed to his crimes.
