If I’m being honest, I know the only thing stopping me is my nosy neighbor, Mrs. Alvarez, and how she somehow knows everything that’s going on in the building. Getting rid of this girl’s dead body after I BTK her is going to be next to impossible, what with Mrs. Alvarez constantly lurking around. Sometimes I think the only thing stopping me from serial killing these days is that nosy old woman next door.” Read the whole hilariously murderous story…
