Jeffery Dahmer

Responsible for killing and dismembering 17 young men between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer is arguably one of the most gruesome serial killers the world has ever seen. Mostly targeting African-American men at gay bars, Dahmer would lure his victims to his home and drug them before strangling them to death. He would then engage in sexual acts with their corpses and often keep their genitals or skills as souvenirs. Dahmer’s rampage came to an end in 1992 after he was captured and given 15 life sentences.

Green River Killer

With a total of 49 confirmed murders (he confessed to 71), Gary Ridgway, otherwise known as the Green River Killer, is one of the most prolific serial killer in American history. While married, Ridgway began murdering sex workers and children throughout the 1980's and 1990's. Strangling his victims and discarding their bodies around Seattle and the Washington Green River, Ridgway regularly returned to the corpses for intercourse. It wasn't until 2001 when the nefarious necrophiliac was connected by DNA evidence to the murders of four women. Like what you hear and want more true crime and mystery?

Jack The Ripper

The case is undoubtedly the most infamous murder-mystery in history. “Jack the Ripper” is the name given to the unidentified serial killer that murdered and mutilated five female prostitutes in London in 1888. While there have been over 100 theories presented on the Ripper’s true identity, renowned “Ripperologist” Martin Fido suggests that a violent, anti-social man named “David Cohen” is the true killer, partly because Cohen’s incarceration at an insane asylum happened to coincide with the end of the murders. Although various letters were sent to the press by the alleged killer, one with a human kidney, the case of the Ripper murders will possibly forever remain unsolved.

Susan Smith

Blinded by her obsession for a man who wasn’t interested in women with children, Susan Smith did the unthinkable; pushing her car into a lake, killing her two young sons. Smith’s case first garnered national attention when – for 9 days – she made public emotional pleas for the safe return of her children, claiming her vehicle had been carjacked by a black man who drove away with her sons still in the car. Smith eventually plead guilty to killing her sons and was sentenced to life in prison.

David Koresh

As the leader of the Branch Davidians religious cult, David Koresh became highly known for leading his “Army of God” in a 51-day standoff against the Federal Government that resulted in the deaths of four ATF agents and over 80 Davidians. After stockpiling massive amounts of weapons in preparation for the apocalypse and alleged sex with minor cult members, the ATF raided their holy compound and burned down the center after their bloody standoff. Koresh was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound after the fire.

The "Dating Game Killer"

With estimates that run as high as 130 murders, Rodney Alcala’s ruthless spree of murder, rape, and sexual assault throughout the 1970’s has been widely compared to that of Ted Bundy’s. During this time, Alcala took sexually explicit photos of hundreds of young men and women as a self-proclaimed professional photographer. Alcala was a contestant on the TV show, The Dating Game in 1978 - despite being a convicted rapist, registered sex offender, and being investigated for multiple murders. After two mistrials, Alcala was sentenced to death in 2010 and 120 of his horrific photographs were later released by police to identify any additional victims.
