David Edward Maust (April 5, 1954 - January 20, 2006) was an American serial killer whose primary targets were young boys.


Early life

Maust was deeply troubled as a child and was confined in a mental institution at the age of nine.[1]


He has been suspected or charged for five murders, including one in Germany while he was in the United States Army; one in the early 1980s; and three in Hammond, Indiana, where he was caught after the remains of the three victims' bodies were found under concrete in a residential basement. He had been considered mentally unfit to stand trial on multiple occasions.

An official biography about his life and crimes, Blood Stained: When No One Comes Looking, written by Dory Maust was released January 6, 2009.


Maust died at St. Anthony Medical Center in Crown Point, Indiana, 27 hours after a suicide attempt.
