5 Serial Killers in Life

I just find them fascinating, and would like to teach on some famous (and non) serial killers.

I'd give you a warning of topics such as rape and murder etc, but what else would you expect reading this?

1. Ed Gein

5 Serial Killers in Life

After his mother died (whom he had a severe attachment to), he began to desecrate graves. He dug up bodies, practicing necrophilia and taking home the pieces. As far as we know he only killed two women, but kept trophies of them along with the bodies he stole. He created a belt made of nipples, an apron, gloves and pants made of skin, a face mask, tongue necklace, a skull bowl and many more. He was pleaded insane at trial, and eventually was convicted of murder. He was in and out of different psych wards until he died of a cardiovascular disease at the age of 77.

2. Tsutomu Miyazaki: The Human Dracula

5 Serial Killers in Life

A collector of child pornography, he would kidnap and photograph little girls naked and then defile them before murdering them. He would also take photos of them after death, writing letters to the families describing their children's deaths. He was known to sometimes drink the blood of his victims, and eating a girls hand in one case. Killing 4 girls, he was determined to have DID (multiple personality disorder) along with schizophrenia. Considered legally insane, he was sentenced to death at the age of 45.

3. Ted Bundy

5 Serial Killers in Life

Very famous, he was known to have killed 36 women, but possibly more than 100. After killing each woman he would revisit their grave sites and rape the bodies. He fell in love in college, but devastated when he broke up all of his victims resembled that girl; attractive students with long, black hair. He was considered to be very attractive and charming which gave him ease of access when it came to gaining victims. Usually, he raped the victims before he would beat them to death. He was sentenced to death at 42, being electrocuted in Florida.

4. Ahmad Suradji: The Sorcerer

5 Serial Killers in Life

He killed for 11 years, murdering at least 42 girls and women. His name "The Sorcerer" was given to him because he proclaimed to be magical. People (mainly women) would come to him asking for spells or rituals to help in luck, wealth, sexual adventures or the loyalty of their husbands. He would charge them hundreds of dollars, then bury them to their waist in a sugar plantation by his house-they believed it to be apart of the ritual. Proceeding to strangle them with a cord, he would drink their saliva once they died and undress them to rebury them with their heads facing his home. He believed it would give him more power. He told police he had a dream his father told him to kill 70 women and drink their saliva in order to become a mystic healer. He was killed by firing squad at 59.

5. Countess Elizabeth Bathory

5 Serial Killers in Life

She was known to kill and torture servants and peasants but because of her families wealth and popularity, she was untouchable. She tortured girls such as pushing pins under their nails, or covering them in honey making them lay out to be attacked by flies and bees. Elizabeth would bite pieces of flesh off of them and one poor girl was forced to cook and eat a chunk of her own skin. Through popular belief she would "bath in blood" of young girls in order to stay young and beautiful. Once she started to kidnap more noble girls, her and her assistants were convicted of at least 80 murders. All involved on trial were put to death but because of her high-ranking title, she was confined to a room in a castle with nothing but slits for food and air. She died after 3 years, she was 54.

Now this is only part 1, I will be posting more on serial killers eventually.

  • Interesting MyTake.

  • So I have known about Ed Gein for some time, and despite his low body count his fetishes were so extreme and bizarre that I must confess his illness is quite interesting. Not sure if you knew this but it is because of his "habits" that both the main antagonists in the films Silence of the Lambs and Texas Chainsaw Massacre were based off of Ed Gein. Yikes.

    • yes i knew

    • I believe Norman Bates was also based off of him as well, correct?

    • @SaintDamage I would say so, I think there have been a number of movie monsters that have been inspired by our real live monsters...

  • Interesting mytake. Some of these killers they made movies about them.

  • So what school are you going to for that degree in psychology for starters, but keep it open to psychiatry.

  • Very cool to read that - but could you maybe put in the years of their birth and death?:)

  • I've heard of all these before. Good post though

  • Elizabeth Bathory was definitely the worst here, she was like a female version of Vlad The Impaler.

    • she's probably my favourite serial killer.

    • @BaileyisDarcy Well, definitely one of the most interesting serial killers of all times.

    • @BaileyisDarcy she's my favorite too

  • this is really interesting but w=it doesn't have to do anything with fashion and beauty lol

    • it changed when i published it and I don't know why

    • I've also experienced this bug.

  • kill them that simple prison is pointless

  • This is awful! Them poor girls :/

    Another serial killer that pops to my mind is Andrey Chikatilo - The red ripper / The ripper of rostov.
    He killed something like 50-ish people.

  • I love serial killers. I mean reading about them.

  • Don't forget this guy.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luis_Garavito

    He killed possibly up to 300 victims (like 170 proven victims or something)... and was sentenced to 22 years in Jail.
    He will be released in 2021.

    • i was actually going to include him and make this 10 people but i narrowed it down for now

  • The Zodiac is my favorite serial killer.

  • why didn't these people simply die in an accident when they were little. so many innocent people die in accidents, yet these insane bastards didn't. they should have burned them with oil.

  • I have a fascination in this area too. Although I wouldn't ever do it.

  • 1-3 looks normal from outside

  • Gotta include the Zodiac Killer! Very interesting and mysterious.

  • Some crazy ones
    - the "iceman" kuklinski
    - Jeffrey dahmer

    So much more but I forgot the names

  • This is really interesting. Also did you know Zac Efron is going to play Ted Bundy in a movie about him?

    • ewww wtf

    • Yeah that's what I saw on the internet. It's hella first Jeffrey Dahmer now ted bundy
