Serial Killers have always been the centre of attraction amidst the world of crime. For a brief knowledge of serial killing, it is basically a term whereby the alleged convict is found to have induced in multiple killings in an organized fashion. Crime investigators and criminal psychologists often refer to the term as “organized killing by a psychopath who may have a motive or may not have a motive behind the murders.”
While very few serial killers pronounce a sound motive, most of the others are found to indulge in this act of “leisure killing.” Perhaps it can be traced down to some haunting testimonials that are versed as, “I loved to see them shout and panic, the pain made me feel the adrenaline rush.”
The top 10 serial killers that go down the pages of history are certainly to give you the chills down the spine.
