Mark Twitchell Biography
(Canadian Filmmaker Who Was Convicted of First-Degree Murder of John Brian Altinger)
Birthday: July 4, 1979 (Cancer)
Born In: Edmonton, Canada
Mark Twitchell is Canadian filmmaker, more infamous than famous for his conviction as a first-degree murderer. A diehard fan of ‘Star Wars’ series and Dexter Morgan, the antihero of the Dexter book series, he developed an early interest in film and costume making. However, he was never a stable character and lied unnecessarily, later describing himself as a 'pathological liar' in a self-created document called ‘Profile of a Psychopath'. His first film, ‘Star Wars: Secrets of the Rebellion’, was never released, but earned him some local attention. Later he made another short film, titled ‘House of Cards’. Shortly, he decided to become a serial killer, luring his victims into a rented garage. While the first one was able to get away, he did kill the second. Thereafter, he not only dismembered his body, but also played for a while with his skull before dumping it into a sewer and writing his experience in another document. When he was caught, the document became a key evidence, and he was given life imprisonment.
