Tracey Wigginton, born in Australia in 1965, is a murderer who achieved notoriety for killing a man in 1989, supposedly in order to drink his blood.
On the evening of October 20, 1989 a middle-aged council worker, Edward Baldock  was on his way home after drinking in a local pub with his friends. He was approached by a vehicle with 4 women inside: Tracey Wigginton, her lover, Lisa Ptaschinski, along with 2 female friends, Kim Jervis and Tracey Waugh.
Taking advantage of the state of his intoxication, one of the women, lured him into their car and they drove to a secluded area of the park pretexting that they needed intimacy for sexual activities.
What followed was a gruesome attack that left the man with so many stab wounds to the back and chest, that he was virtually decapitated. There were 27 stab wounds reported.
His body was discovered early next morning by members of the public.
Found in one of the victims shoes was a cash card bearing the name of Tracey Wigginton. This led to the early arrest of all four women.
The story may seam normal to this point but the trial revealed something unexpected.
Initially the investigators believed that the lack of blood found in the corpse was due to the numerous serious wounds he had, but Wigginton admitted not only to killing the man, but also to drinking his blood!
She went on proclaiming herself a vampire and said she hadn`t been feeding on normal aliments for years. She would procure porc and beef blood from the butcher to sustain her cravings.
On quite a number of occasions Wigginton`s lover, Lisa Ptaschinski, said she would slit her wrists so that Wigginton could drink her blood. Based on her obsession for human blood, all 4 women schemed up a plan to kill an innocent victim in order for Tracey Wigginton to have her craving of blood satisfied.
It was this information elicited by police as well as their confessions in the interest of the occult and vampires which led to this homicide being referred to as “The Vampire Murder”.
Tracey Wigginton and Lisa Ptaschinski were both sentenced to life imprisonment.
The other 2 women involved were originally sentenced to 18 years jail for manslaughter [later reduced to 12 years] but Tracey Waugh was later acquitted after her defense argued she had played no active role in the murder and had tried to stop Jervis from taking part.
Her parole application was accepted in 2012 and she is currently free.
