A student who’s been accused of being a serial rapist allegedly kept a horrifying book which detailed his victims and what he planned to do them.
20-year-old business student Alec Cook was arrested after a woman claimed she’d been strangled and sexually assaulted by him at University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The Mirror reports that dozens of women have since come forward and Cook’s facing charges from five other victims. Detectives discovered a black leather book in his bedside table when they raided his apartment.

Inside the the book police found a disturbing list of women that Cook had met and documented creepy things about them including ‘where met, how met, colour of eyes and what makes her special’.
Most worryingly the at the top of the page is a check box which is labelled ‘killed?’.

A police search warrant claimed:
Further entries went on to document what he wanted to do with the females … Disturbingly enough there were statements of ‘kill’ and statements of ‘sexual’ desires.
Cook denies all the allegations against him and his lawyer Chris Van Wagner played down the significance of the journal.
He explained that it says ‘killed,’ crossed out, question mark, box, and that he was an English literature major so ‘every single short story could be interpreted in twelve ways’.
