Top 10 American Serial Killers

The Top Ten
Jeffrey Dahmer Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer, also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal, was an American serial killer and sex offender, who committed the rape, murder, and dismemberment of seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991, with many of his later murders also involving necrophilia, cannibalism, and the permanent preservation ...read more.

He is currently burning in hell with George Floyd, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and all the other serial killers, rapists, career criminals, ect.

I think this Guy was seriously messed up from a very young age. I think he had some sort of mental disorder & needed serious help. However I believe he was sane in the sense that he knew right from wrong. But just didn't care about his victims. He selfishly put his sick fantasies first instead of suppressing his sick urges or seeking medical help from a psychiatrist. He chose to murder innocent people & do the most sick, grotesque things with there bodies, treating them with no respect at all. Maybe things could of been different if he got psychiatric help at a young age.

He claimed at one point that he felt sorry for what he did to his victims as well as their loved ones and if he could give his life to bring them back, he would; however, I've never really heard of serial killers feeling remorse for their misdeeds. Point in fact, the killing is what makes them feel powerful.

He was the most gruesome murderer in recent history. He was much more dangerous than Charles Manson. IN my opinion Jeffery Dahmer is the most notorious serial killer in all of the 20th century.

Ted Bundy Theodore Robert Bundy was an American serial killer, kidnapper, rapist, and necrophiliac who assaulted and murdered numerous young women and girls during the 1970s and possibly earlier.

My teacher was actually kidnapped by ted bundy. He pulled up in a nice car and asked her if she needed a ride some where.

The term "serial killer" was first used to describe HIM! And because of him, there are more serial killers.

Killed a lot of innocent woman, nobody knows the exact number...

Known as the Lady Killer

Many of his victims strongly resembled his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Brooks.

The Zodiac Killer The Zodiac Killer was a serial killer who operated in northern California in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

He was one serial killer that was never caught nor identified. Jack the Ripper was the other, although he was actually in England.

He was unknown. Even decades after killing they are still trying to figure out who he is. (Killed mostly in San Francisco

I love him (Do not get me wrong he should of never done what he did) and the way he mock the police my lord he is the best.

To love a serial killer, you must be just as sick and disgusting. What is there to love about a person who ruthlessly takes the lives of innocent people? I mean, honestly, what have these people ever done to them to deserve to die? Not a damn thing.

It's believed that his true identity is Richard Gaikowski. I watched a MysteryQuest documentary on him, although his actual identity is still unconfirmed.

Charles Manson Charles Milles Manson (1934-2017) was an American criminal who led what became known as the Manson Family, a quasi-commune that arose in the California desert in the late 1960s.

Like most of the people on this list, Charles Manson had a DAMAGED childhood. Most SERIAL KILLERS (remember, he never actually killed anyone) either suffer through a traumatic event or have a traumatic childhood. This does not make his actions any less horrific; however, I truly believe that if he had a different childhood, one where he was not emotionally damaged, then he probably would not have conspired to murder.

This man makes me flat out sick! He denies ordering his followers to murder but he did tell them to do it. He ordered Sharon Tate's death and he led them to the LaBianca house the night they were murdered. He is evil and disgusting and should go to Hell!

It doesn't make him a serial killer # 1! He didn't do it he might have planned it but didn't do it like you plan to fix a car but you pay the mechanic to do it he doesn't pay U. So the shooter should be #1!

It's hard to say what makes a person a top serial killer, but if you have to pick one, I'd say the most famous of the bunch is a safe bet.

Albert Fish Hamilton Howard "Albert" Fish was an American serial killer. He was also known as the Gray Man, the Werewolf of Wysteria, the Brooklyn Vampire, the Moon Maniac, and The Boogey Man.

He was also known as the Gray Man, the Werewolf of Wysteria, the Brooklyn Vampire, the Moon Maniac and The Boogey Man. A child rapist and cannibal, he boasted that he "had children in every state, " and at one time stated the number was about 100.

He was a pedophile who killed and ate innocent children. How disgusting. He is, in my opinion, the worst serial killer that ever lived. Or at least one of them. Burn in the flames of hell, Vampire of Brooklyn!

This guy killed over 250 to 3 or 4 hundred children and was a pervert, canibal, and a was into some woerd stuff. Not to mention the letter he sent to the mother of a little girl he killed and cooked.

Look this guy up and tell me you're not sick to your stomach

Richard Ramirez Ricardo Leyva Muñoz Ramírez, known as Richard Ramirez, widely known as the Night Stalker, was an American serial killer, rapist, and burglar. ...read more.

He thought the Devil was his protector but little does he know the Devil is no one's protector, no one's friend. He tortures the wicked for their entire afterlife.

The Night Stalker was one of the most demonic serial killers in America.

Worships the Devil

He literally lashed an old woman's head off

See you in Disneyland.

John Wayne Gacy John Wayne Gacy, Jr., also known as the Killer Clown, was an American serial killer and rapist who sexually assaulted and murdered at least 33 teenage boys and young men between 1972 and 1978 in Cook County, Illinois.

JWG was beyond sick and barbaric, and the sheer numbers is mind boggling!

Kept the bodies of his victims under his house.

Ed Gein Edward Theodore Gein, also known as The Butcher of Plainfield, was an American murderer and body snatcher.

He just killed 2 people, and still, remains as the legendary killer who inspired Norman Bates, Hannibal Lecter and Leatherface.

Smart enough to have different people build different parts of the house at different times for his hidden corridors. #1!

This guy was the cause of 3 horror movies. They said they even found the skins of his victms as clothes or finiture he has to be number 1 on this list not 13.

The Silence of the Lambs, Psycho, and American Psycho were based on him. Creep!

H.H. Holmes Herman Webster Mudgett (1861-1896), better known as Dr. Henry Howard Holmes or, more commonly, as H. H. Holmes, was an American serial killer. While he confessed to 27 murders, only nine could be plausibly confirmed and several of the people he claimed to have murdered were still alive. He is said to ...read more.

So if he killed 200 people a serial killer isn't about how much people you killed but what you do to the people think about it this way he may have killed 200 people but he is giving the organs away which can help people who need fresh organs.

TThis guy is sick like torture chambers, acid vats, greased chutes and gassing rooms were just some of the devices of death designed by the Torture Doctor, H.H. Holmes in his castle of horrors!

You can learn all about him by reading Erik Larson's "The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America".

He built a whole murder hotel, and had a lot of people killed in it through several different methods and then sold the skeletons.

Gary Ridgway Gary Leon Ridgway, also known as the Green River Killer, is an American serial killer. He was initially convicted of 48 separate murders.

Killed for a long period and the exact number of victims is still unknown. They are still finding bodies in the Seattle area plus he was a necro - GROSS!

He killed more people than most other serial killers combined. Surely the mere scale of death and suffering he caused would rank him higher than Ted Bundy and Jeffery Damer

The dude even passed a lie detector test since he felt no guilt he wasn't gonna be called a liar.

This guy is so sick

The Contenders
Dennis Rader Dennis Lynn Rader is an American serial killer who murdered ten people in Sedgwick County, between 1974 and 1991.

Leonard Lake and Charles Ng

Herb Baumeister Herbert Richard "Herb" Baumeister was an American alleged serial killer from Westfield near Indianapolis, Indiana.

He is a very sick person I feel sorry for all the people he murdered.

Aileen Wuornos Aileen Carol Wuornos was an American serial killer who killed seven men in Florida between 1989 and 1990. Wuornos claimed that her victims had either raped or attempted to rape her while she was working as a prostitute, and that all of the homicides were committed in self-defense.

She was a homosexual prostitute who killed her johns, or men, if you prefer to say.

I know why she's evil. She had a tragic life.

Sick and twisted

Dude you think she is sick and twisted? her father was worse. Aileen's father attempted to rape a kid the same year she was born. Her father hung himself in prison. She lived a terrible life that nobody deserves. She was raped by her grandfather's friend kicked out of there house. Aileen's mother abandoned her and her brother when she was only 4 years old. At least Aileen when't after full grown people instead of going after kids. Her dad was more twisted. Every serial killer has live a very effed up life.

He even recorded himself telling the women what he was going to do before doing it. This guy pure psycho. So SICK!
