Serial Killers
Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Andrei Chikatilo are all well-known serial killers across the United States and Soviet Union. You may even know them by their nicknames: The Crazy Necrophile, The Milwaukee Cannibal, and Red Ripper. Were these men born or made into serial killers is an enormous debate. What caused this type of vicious killing is it underling psychological mental disorder, childhood abuse, or even rage? Prior to telling you about each serial killer, I must tell you the definition of a serial killer. According to the FBI, a serial killer is someone who commits three murders or more murders in month with an expressive cooling off period in between. Also, this definition has many different challenges because not all serial killers fit the definition. According to the National Institute of Justice, a serial killer involves committing two or more murders with a psychological motive and sadistic sexual overtones. This definition applies to mostly males, so its application is restricted.
Ted Bundy is a name that everyone knowns from around the 1970s. He was born on November 24, 1946, in Burlington, Vermont. To many, he was an intelligent and charming young man. As a teenager, he showed signs of a sadistic serial killer, which he would later become. At the age of 18, his wide-ranging juvenile record for theft was dismissed. In 1972, he graduated college with hopes to aspire in the field of law or politics. Not knowing his success would be short-lived, by 1974 he killed his first victim (the earliest victim known). Ted targeted college women who had things going for themselves, preying on women in Washington, Colorado, Utah, and Florida. Ted Bundy, targeted young college-age women resembling his girlfriend, who is known to be his first victim. He would use arm slings, crutches, or any apparatus to create a disabled appearance in order to entice help from the victim he would attack. Ted was known to impersonate police officers or any one in authority to make victims trust him. After getting them to his car, he would attack by hitting the victim over the head and handcuffing them. He often time removed his passenger seat for the victim to lie out of sight as he drove. His sneaky tricks allowed him to rape and murder many. He strangled them and dismembering them. He kept heads as souvenirs of his craft. He was also known to revisit the site where he dumped the corpse or brought them back his residence to perform sexual acts. Executed in 1989, he confirmed the killing of 30 women plus many other victims not counted.
Andrei Chikatilo, a soviet serial killer, is known from 1978-1990 for killing at least 50 plus victims. Andrei Chikatilo is known as Red Ripper, Butcher of Rostov, and Rostov Ripper. Andrei Chikatilo was born on October 16, 1936, in the Ukraine state of the USSR. He grew up during the great Ukrainian famine of the 1930s, during which millions died and...
