serial killer has been discovered frozen in time, with one room even filled with creepy kids' dolls.Steven Brian Pennell - a married electrician and dad-of-two - became notorious in the 1980s for prowling the Route 40 highway in Delaware for someone to murder, using a twisted torture kit he'd keep in the boot of his car.Finally caught in November 1988, he was convicted of abducting and murdering two women whilst being suspected of killing three others, crimes for which he asked to be executed - the only serial killer in America to ever make such a request.

And now, more than 30 years on, the inside of the now dilapidated home - thought to be where he carried out his despicable acts - has been photographed by an urban adventurer called Ben James who specialises in taking pictures of abandoned buildings.Indeed, the images cast quite an eerie spell, from the house's vine-strewn clapperboard exterior to its intact upstairs rooms with made beds, hanging drapes and sideboards - one of which even has a television set still on top of it.The aforementioned dolls, still in their dresses but now dust-covered and faded by the sun, also sit on the window sill, next to what appears to be an old prayer book.

Downstairs, however, seems to have been hit much harder by the intervening decades, with mouldy peeling wallpaper, busted sofas and rubbish scattered across the floor, ankle deep in some parts.
