9781517040048: Serial Killers: Exploring the Horrific Crimes of Little Known Murderers

Serial killers fascinates...Extreme cases even more so

From John Wayne Gacy to Jeffrey Dahmer, many of America’s most famous murderers have entered into the collective cultural consciousness. They have become pop culture figures, famous for their crimes and the violent nature of their acts. People feel compelled to understand more about these dark and twisted crimes, even when they disgust. For audiences everywhere, the very idea that these people can exist and operate in day-to-day life becomes an issue of abject terror and interest. That your neighbor, your boss, or your gas station attendant might be in the midst of a killing spree taps into something primal and very hard to imagine. It reflects the darkest side of the human psyche.

“Serial Killer” as a term can be difficult to define. Different criminal investigation units typically require two, three, or more attributable killings over a period of time before an individual can be considered to have joined the ranks of the serial killers. However, it is not really the numbers which can interest so many people and scare others. Instead, it is the often random nature of the killings. Rather than crimes of passion, crimes of financial reward, or instances when an individual has reached their end of their emotional tether, the crimes of serial killers have often been planned days, weeks, or months in advance. Targets can be random, but the killings are often planned in great detail. From cannibalism to mental health concerns, from ritualistic witchcraft to a simple interest in violence, learning what motivates these people can offer both insight and further confusion.

The cases presented in this book are extreme cases and display to what extent a serial killer can go...

Read the stories of little known serial killers that went beyond the limit of our imagination to perpetrate vile unremorseful murders in the blink of an eye.



The book details ten cases more horrifying one from the other:

  • The isolated loner who butchered women and scattered their remains across Alaska
  • The killer who hurled huge stones through his victim’s heads
  • Colombia’s most violent serial killer
  • The police investigator who was secretly a serial killer
  • The woman who murdered hundreds of adopted babies
  • A month-long killing spree from the former mental health patient
  • The letter-writing cannibal of old New York
  • The killer tried inside an iron cage for the court’s protection
  • A man who earned the trust of tourists and killed them for their money
  • The man whose hammer and knife created a campaign of terror

Review :

THESE CRIMES ARE HORRIFIC!
By Angee
What I found interesting was depending on the country of the crimes, how these killers were found and how many victims they got away with killing.
There is even a police officer.
Definitely a must read.

Quick and informative
By Audracious
This book is interesting and well organized. Quick read that hits all the key points in each cases, solved or not solved.
