John Joubert was born on July 2, 1963 in Lawrence, Massachusetts. At a young age Joubert was seen as bright as he began reading at the age of three and was found to have in IQ of 123. At the age of 6, his parents divorced and he was forced to live with his controlling mother. Joubert was unable to have contact with his father and his mother often stopped him from communicating with his peers, which made him an outcast.

From around the age of 6 Joubert had violent sadistic fantasies that centred around his desire to murder and cannibalize his babysitter. Around the time that Joubert joined the cub-scouts his fantasies began to worsen and he thought about murdering strangers. At the age of 13, he stabbed a girl with a pencil, cut another girl with a razor blade and nearly beat a boy to death. Prior to his murder series, between the ages of 13 and 17, Joubert stabbed a woman in the stomach and attacked a 9 year old boy. After Joubert began his murder series he joined the Air Force.

The murder series began in 1982, at the age of 19, and ended in 1983. All of his victims were young, Caucasian boys between the ages of 11 and 13. Joubert would kidnap his victims off the street in the middle of the day.He made his victims undress and then would stab and strangle them. One of Joubert’s victims had bite marks and another had his feet and hand bound before being stabbed to death. The bodies were placed in secluded wooded areas and there was no attempt to bury the remains.

On January 11, 1984 Joubert was arrested for attacking a woman outside of a church. She was able to record his license plate, which allowed police to identify him. Joubert eventually confessed to the murders of Chris Waldren and Danny Joe Eberle. On October 9, 1984 he was found guilty of the murders and sentenced to death by electric chair. He was later convicted for the murder of his first victim, Richard Stetson, on October 15, 1990. Joubert was executed by the electric chair in Lincoln, Nebraska on July 17, 1996.
