Top 10 Most Infamous Serial Killers
The Top Ten
People say he looked handsome and normal but underneath that smile was a monster.
Ted Bundy should be #1. I feel bad for the people who lived when he roamed the streets.
A very perverted, sick, disturbed individual who acted like a barbaric animal.
He's one of the most evil people of all time. I hate him with a burning passion.
This guy killed more people than Ted and should be number 1
Look out a clown is comming for you. His nickname was the killer clown.
Killed more people than Jeffrey and Ted
Like Jack the Ripper we'll probably never know his true identity.
Come on people, the mastermind of psychopaths and killers
I heard they never found such a legend
Killed so many more people than Aron Konminski
Come on, its Jack the Ripper, Jacky's number 1. Well, I don't plan on ever changing my career choice to serial killer or law officer, so I don't research serial killers (I'm pretty ignorant to the subject). But he's definitely the most famous, and often times a serial killers main goal is fame, so I guess Jack wins.
As someone who isn't ignorant to the subject and studies them, I can say that the ones who have been caught are much more interesting. But if you want a good killer who was never caught, look at Charlie Chop-Off. Or Jack the Stripper.
Look the rapists are demons, but their murders were nowhere near as heinous as this guy’s. He butchered prostitutes like they came out of saw, there also wasn’t even so much as a single trace to his real identity, furthermore, his name has entered pop culture, folklore, books, and basically anywhere else (in terms of instant recognition his name dwarves anyone else on this list). There’s probably more to point out too
Most famous in history and possibly a person of importance in English government.
I heard that he has possession of medical knowledge.
Hottest killer ever
He’s scary to serial killers
How isn't he #1? The crap he did was BRUTAL.
He technically isn't a true serial killer. Serial killing is the span of 3 or more murders over a length on time. He has only been convicted of killing two people, though this is debatable, since he could've started the fire that killed his brother, but nobody know for sure if he did. But he is pretty far out there when it comes to terms of what he did with the corpses, turning parts of the bodies of dead women into furniture and trying to create a suit so he could be his mother, who he adored dearly. Ed Gein was also one of the first serial killers I studied, so I've always seen him as one of the most gruesome (yet interesting.)
Only killed 2 people but is still one of the most infamous serial killers of the 20th century.
As a child I feel this story has made me be aware of the dangours on the streets today, both husband and wife had no reason too kill the inocent children. Also when mr west was a child it got said that he was sexular abused by his mother and that his family agreed in insest this is just one of the reason for his killing those children. When mr west was younger he had a fall trying to esscape a fir and did some damage to his brain and he was in a coma for 8day, he then aged 19 ran over a a 4year old child with his ice cream van this all relates to why he killed them children, these couple were born evil.
Fred West was one of the most evil and twisted serial killers of all time. Rose West was evil too but Fred was the real monster
Both were very, very sick, but I reckon Rose was the real mastermind.
You have to feel sorry for poor Charmaine...
She's scary as hell
He is the serial killer with the most kills. He has confessed killing 138 children and is believed to have killed 172-300+ children in total
Never heard of him
He should be #2!
Like the zodiac killer
Series was brilliant I reckon best killer in usa
Might have killed over 200 people. Should be in top 5
Should be #1. Like, really! HE BUILT A GIANT HOTEL AND WASN'T ARRESTED FOR ANY OF THE SHADY STUFF HE BOUGHT, OR HOW HE FIRED ANY WORKERS WHO QUESTIONED HIM! (But if y'all want to find out more, read Devil In The White City. It's an amazing book about Holmes and the Chicago Fair. Oh, and his real name id Herman.)
This famous sociopath and possibly the most prolific and intelligent (not because he was a doctor) serial killer in history who gained pleasure from killing his so called patients by the method of poisoning which lead to a total count of 250-457 murders.
Most victims in history.
He has one of the highest body counts in serial killer history.
