Some of the most dangerous assassins that have walked the earth are featured in this article. They killed loads of people, but it doesn’t stop at that. Some even ate their victims’ bodies or kept them for decoration around the house.
**None of these are in any particular order**
Not all of these people are the ones who immediately come to your mind when you think serial killer, and I haven’t listed many prominent serial killers who you would probably think of, but this list is equally important (and interesting), because of all the crimes these people have committed.
After reading this list over again, I realized that all the people listed here were men. That got me thinking and I decided to write another article just about female serial killers. Check it out here: Six of the Most Dangerous Female Serial Killers
Albert Hamilton Fish was known as the most deranged man in American History. Some other nicknames for him were the Brooklyn Vampire, the Gray Man, the Boogeyman and the Werewolf of Wysteria. Apart from being a murderer, he was also a cannibal and pedophile. He was known to have killed little Grace Budd, and many other children. He spent most of his childhood at an orphanage. His family had a history of mental illnesses and he and the other boys at the orphanage were often abused. Strangely, Fish seemed to like the pain. He would stick needles into himself and get people to hit him with a paddle that had a needle on it’s end. He says he was a male prostitute and that he raped young boys. He was executed via electric chair at the age of 65.
Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer was supposedly homosexual. As a teenager, he was different from most others his age. He used to go around the neighborhood looking for dead animals and dissect them at home. Once, he told his father that he brought home a dead squirrel and dissolved it in chemicals. He also started drinking as a teenager and became an alcoholic. He dropped out of university and was forced by his father to join the army, but he was discharged soon after because of his alcoholism. Jeff would kill his victims (all males, most of them Asian or African) and then either eat them or have sex with their bodies. Sometimes he would store body parts around the house for fun. He reportedly had a human heart in his freezer. in 1994, one of Jeff’s inmates (Christopher Scarver) beat him with a weight machine bar and he died at the age of 34 in the ambulance, suffering severe head trauma.
