Serial Killer Profiles

When it comes to telling the stories of true life crime, there is no type of criminal that gets as much attention as a serial killer. On one hand, any sane person is revolted by the truly horrific true life crimes that serial killers have committed. However, on the other hand, many good people find themselves compelled to learn more about a serial killer. Not because they worship them or give them more attention than they deserve for their true life crimes but more to learn how a human being that started out just like any other person could become a serial killer. These serial killer profiles are the stories of the true life crimes of some of the most infamous serial killers of modern times. The intention is not to make them or their vial true life crimes part of folklore but more to give an insight into a criminal mind and show just how evil these serial killers were to be able to kill at all, let alone in such numbers.
