Ardisson, Victor

The so-called Vampire of Muy in southern France, who was arrested in 1901 for multiple illegal exhumations and violations of graves. Ardisson was unlike other notorious criminals who bore the nickname “vampire” (such as John Haigh and Peter Kurten), as he was virtually nonviolent.

He raided cemeteries purely to indulge in necrophilia on female corpses, often women he had known in life. His crimes and behavior were examined in detail by Dr. Alexis Epaulard, who in 1901 wrote a thesis on Ardisson. Ardisson was sentenced to as asylum.
