Top 10 Serial Killers


The Top Ten

1 Jack the Ripper Jack the Ripper "Jack the Ripper" was the alias of an unknown serial killer in Whitechapel, London who brutally murdered 5 women (mainly prostitutes) between August and November of 1888.

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.

Maybe the fact that they weren't caught helps. And no one knows who he really is or his number of victims. - Lucretia

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

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.
