27. Donald McDougall and Susan Assaid

McDougal repeatedly tortured Assaid's 5-year-old daughter Ursula Sunshine Assaid. The mother did nothing to stop it and helped dump the body in a pond in Altamonte Springs. Ursula died in 1982 after 55 hours of torture at the hands of McDougall, Susan Assaid's boyfriend. Another inmate beat McDougall to death in prison in 1996. Susan Assaid was released after serving a third of her 15-year-prison sentence.Orlando Sentinel
