The Ultimate Case of Depravity

Breaking a Will

To break a child’s mind with cruelty is a horrible, inexcusable thing. To turn that child into a demon in his father’s image is even worse, especially when that child becomes more evil than his father. This was the life and times of Phillip Carl Jablonski. The acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree, as his son, another Phillip Jablonski, committed murder, too. The Phillip Jablonski that I refer to was born January 3, 1946 to Phillip and Nettie Jablonski.

Youthful Behavior Tells All

As with most serial killers, they work up to their trade. Phillip Jr. witnessed his drunken father abuse his mother, and though he tried to protect her at his tender age, he was no match for a full grown man. Instead, he became afflicted with post traumatic stress disorder and other mental illnesses. He then became what his own father was and worse.

Phil began his demented ways in 1964, attempting to rape a sister, when reality kicked in. In 1968, he attempted to kill his wife, Rose, his childhood sweetheart. A son, another Phillip, was born, the one who also serves a prison term.

Adult Crimes

In 1970, as a liquor store clerk, Jablonski committed a sexual assault on a minor at the liquor store. In 1977 and 1978, two more sex crimes occurred.

Also in 1978, Phil murdered his common-law wife, Linda Kimball.

In 1985, Jablonski assaulted his own mother in a trailer at prison during a family visit. If it were not for this father, he would likely have killed her, too. Both parents passed on six months later.

When Things Came to a Head

In 1991, things really heated up. He killed four women, including his prison pen pal wife and mother-in-law, made an attempt to kill another woman, and was on the way to kill two pen pals in KY and TN. Fortunately, he was arrested by a Kansas Highway Patrol Officer for the 1991 crimes. His days of parole were finally over. When the car was searched, there was plenty of evidence at the disposal of law enforcement. Jablonski had a tape recorder that he had used to recount his crimes with names, dates, and means of the crime. There was also a belt made from a snake that had names on it for the women that he had killed or planned to kill.

Death Row Days

Since 1996, Jablonski has been housed in San Quentin on death row, with many other heinous serial killers, awaiting finality. He does his crafts and makes wonderful things to sell. He has had little trouble in attracting female pen pals. What is the attraction, you ask? Some women like the thought of rubbing elbows with dangerous men. Others feel that they are safely put away, and know where these men are at all times. Others feel that they can change their evil ways. Still others are as lonely with low self esteem, just like these men, and feel that they share a commonality.

The Ultimate Question

What makes someone turn into a killer like this? Phil has flashbacks to his youth,is a compulsive liar, and has told his tales for so long that he really believes them. I was told that it is the finality of death that is the ultimate way to have control and possession. These people have been deserted in the past for whatever reason, and never intend to permit it to happen again. But it is never their fault, nothing ever is. They just got the final word, because the victims deserved it.

      You never know if these people mean what they say. He could have been scared to death that you stood up to him, but we will never know. I am so sorry that you had to deal with this horror.

      Daughter of the victim. 23 months ago

      It really is horrible. I met him before he killed my mother and i told him if something happened to my mother i was gonna come looking for him. In an interview he was asked if he was released what would be the first thing he would do. Answer... He would kidnap, rape, sodomize, carve eyes out, cut ears off...he did this to my mother....is he referring to me...

      Yes, curious one, this was a very general article. Your information is quite true and appreciated.

      What is over looked in this very general article, is that Carl Jablonski was released on Parole, Carol Spadoni requested he not be released near him. Then he missed 3 parole meetings, and which were never followed up on. That was during his next series of murders. He also told his psychiatrist that he fantasized about killing Carol Spadoni BEFORE he was paroled. The Parole board did not take this into account. Jerry Brown in his first run as Governor had a law passed that gave 2nd Degree murder convictions at 7 years time served, they then had right to Parole review. Jablonski was convicted of murdering his first wife but only with a 2nd Degree murder conviction.

      Thanks, shiningirish eyes. As long as one can keep themselves in a leadership role and control THEM, it can be interesting book material. A serial killer will even try to control someone through the mail. I had one ask me for a picture of myself as a child. When I chastised him for even thinking that I would provide him with such a thing, he told me that I misunderstood. Fat chance.

      You are so welcome, Mycee. There will be more. I have been working on a book for a number of years now. Research takes a lot of time.

      A great read ;I cam never understand why women feel the need to write to these vile scum. They are deranged and is this a kick that some bored women have as they write to them. What on earth do they write about in these letters???Actually I honestly don't want to know. thanks for another great hub which leaves much food for thought. Have a wonderful weekend my very dear friend.

      Eddy.

      mpropp, I don't think they could fathom what they were really getting into.

      So true, Jim. It is just a strange attraction. Most of them lie, anyway.

      Thanks, Bumpsysmum. Many of them cannot be helped. The mind creates chemicals that readjust what little normalcy was once there. The longer that they are left to their own devices, the worse the fantasies that turn to reality are. If a child is not helped by the age of 3, there is very little hope.

      They have learned the act of normalcy, Highland Terrier. Then as one gets to know them, the wildness in their hearts shows itself. That's why there is no way that most of them can claim insanity.

      I think you're right, Martin. It really is completely out of our realm of thought.

      Scary stuff...glad he is finally in prison. I can't imagine wanting to be a pen pal with a serial killer--what are those poor women thinking!

      Scary stuff Deb! It is sad to know that there are many like that not in prison yet. I can't fathom why women befriend, correspond with and even marry dangerous convicts.

      There are more at large than have ever been brought to justice. Unfortunately our mental health care in UK has become quite a sham. In their wisdom the powers that be closed most of the homes that would care for them and now these people are left to their own devices, or the devices of those that would use them for their own ends.

      This has resulted in many poor souls living rough and going down the wrong path instead of receiving the help they need.

      I'm not sure where it will all end?

      Interesting Hub.

      Interesting read, if terrifying. They are obviously just ordinary people when you meet them first. No sign of madness in their demeanor.

      Good read

      Fascinating. We are too far removed to know how and why. Thank you for this.

      Thanks, Billy! Through his letters, Phil SEEMS like such a nice guy, but one never knows. He is such a wonderful artist. What a waste of what could be a productive and full life.

      It is probably best that the general public not know how many of these monsters are roaming among us. If we knew, nobody would get a night's sleep.

      Good job Deb!
