Who was the most dangerous serial killer of all time?
It's a toss up between Hitler and Sadam.
The criminal definition of a serial killer is basically a person
who selects individual victims to be murdered.
The US has more serial killers than any other country (85%). The
FBI estimates that at any given time between 20-50 unidentified
serial killers are committing their heinous acts of murder.
Given those statistics it is anyone's guess as to who might be
the most prolific serial killer.
Gary Ridgeway, "The Green River Killer" confessed to 48 murders
to avoid the death penalty, but authorities believe he may be
responsible for hundreds.
Ted Bundy was convicted of murdering 28 females including a
15-year-old although he denied that charge. Authorities believe
that Bundy like Ridgeway was guilty of hundreds of other unsolved
murders that occurred over many years.
One of the factors that make serial killers such an extreme
danger to society and so elusive to authorities is, they all appear
to be the "normal next door neighbor".
If we go by numbers of victims Christman Gniperdoliga killed 964
men between the years 1568-1581 after robbing them.
Actually that bodycount is far from the mark. The French Nobleman
named Gilles De Rais was responsible for Thousands of killings over
many years. He used to target children and he was extremely
perverted. He used to masturbate while the children were dying and
ejaculate on their dying bodies. He was responsible for over 4000
deaths before he was stopped. This man was very wealthy ( he had
more than 400 castles) He was eventually executed.
