The market for buying grisly souvenirs linked to infamous crimes is growing in the United States, with a half-dozen websites sharing what is dubbed the “murderabilia” industry.

Other gruesome mementos include copies of court pleadings, signed photos and even items from people who were accused of being involved in cannibalism.

For $3,700, Supernaught.com is selling a calculator that it says “was one of the few items that the Virginia killer Seung-hui Cho sold on eBay to raise money for the guns, clips and ammo utilized during the rampage.”
