Why I am never going to write a novel revolving around a serial killer

From the Oregonian this week, after a notorious serial killer died:

"Married with two children, Brudos either lured or kidnapped the young women, sometimes with a uniform and badge. He took them to the garage of his Salem house and, usually within an hour, strangled them. He photographed the women as they died and after their deaths. He dressed their bodies in lingerie and had sex with them. He then cut off body parts. One foot he preserved and used to model his collection of high-heeled shoes. He cast a severed breast in resin for a paperweight."

These were real women and girls. I can't turn someone's pain into someon else's pleasure reading.
