Criminal. Bribed children of New York City and took them to a place in the woods where he killed them and used their flesh in a stew. His most famous murder was the one that put him in the electric chair. In 1934 he killed and ate a 10 year old girl named Grace Budd, who he had lured into his forest cottage by saying that his niece was having a party and if she would like to come. At the cottage he strangled her and dismembered her body and used her flesh in a stew with peas carrots and onions. When Grace did not return home her parents got worried and called the police. Parents told the police about the man named Howard White (aka Albert Fish) they found out it was Fish. At his trial, Albert's past crimes were unfolded and it was revealed that he was connected to more than 200 child murders and abductions in 23 states. He confessed to all of these and he was given the electric chair and he said this: "The death penalty... what a thrill it would be to die... thank you, your honor" His burial place is unknown but known to be somewhere in New York City.
