    Biographical Information 13 Dec 1934 
    On this date Fish was arrested. He was the worst kind of criminal. He was arrested for and convicted of murdering Grace Budd a 10 year old girl. He confessed to the sadistic killing of two others. He was a suspect in other killings and may have been guilty of hundreds of crimes. The jury had no doubt that he was insane but found him sane so that he could be executed for his crimes. In 2007 two movies were released. "The Gray Man" was a story based upon the attempt to identify and capture Fish. A documentary was also made entitled " Albert Fish: In Sin He Found Salvation".
