He was a good student, showing a special talent for painting, and from 1967 to 1969, the first attended the Art Institute of Kansas City (Kansas City Art Institute). As a student, Robert received a suspended sentence for selling amphetamines. Later, he was arrested for possession of LSD and marijuana, but the charges were dropped for lack of evidence. During his youth he realized that he prefers same-sex relationships.
In 1969 berdella bought a house at 4315 Charlotte Street, which has become a place to commit his heinous crimes.

In the end, berdella went into entrepreneurs - and opened the unusual store called Bazaar Boba` `(` Bob`s Bizarre`), where selling occult things, various rarities and strange exhibits for people with extraordinary taste.

Bryson reached berdella neighbor who lived across the street, who called the police. At this point, behind the maniac was at least 6 abductions of young people, whom he tortured and raped. Police Department Kansas City also berdella suspected in the disappearance of two other people.
A few months before his capture Robert drunk once a ride home from the bar. During the trip, he talked about how young men kidnapped and then tortured them. But his story is not taken seriously, considering for drunken ravings.
Robert kept a detailed journal of torture, accompanied by a large number of pictures of his victims, made the camera `Polaroid`. His first victim was his lover Jerry Howell. Rapist hurt that Howell did not return the debt, when berdella lent him money for a lawyer. And then July 4, 1984-th he invited Howell to his house and stuffed with tranquilizers. Lover fainted. Berdella repeatedly raped him, floating not just his penis, but the cucumber and carrot.
July 5, 1984 th berdella worked in his shop and in the evening went to rape Howell, who could not stand such istyazatelstv - and died. After his death berdella body hung upside down, initially intending to dismember it. But hanging corpse aroused Robert, who took `Polaroid` and made her first series of photographs. Thereafter a maniac wielding a chain saw and kitchen knives, butchered body. The resulting pieces of flesh he wrapped in paper and packed in bags - and threw it in the trash the next day. Skull Howell buried it in the yard.
After his arrest berdella argued that `pomoch` tried some of his victims, giving them antibiotics after being tortured. It was also reported that in one case he squeezed my eyes one of the victims, wishing to observe what will happen to her next. Berdella said that the adaptation of the book by John Fowles (John Fowles) `Kollektsioner` (` The Collector`), in which the protagonist kidnaps and holds captive a young woman who inspired him when he was a teenager.
After spending 4 years in prison, berdella died of a heart attack October 8, 1992-th. Before his death, he sent a letter to the Minister, which complained that prison staff did not give him medication for the heart.
