Eight of The Most Dangerous Murderers in History

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.

Carl Eugene Watts


Carl Eugene Watts, who was also known as Coral, had murdered over 80 people, his first reportedly before he turned 15. People called him the Sunday Morning Slasher. He says that at the age of 12, he started thinking about killing girls and women. He started stalking girls from then on. Despite having an IQ of 68 and failing most of his classes, he graduated and got a football scholarship. He was expelled 3 months later, though, for stalking women. Many people also believe that he had something to do with the death of a student, a girl. Around the age of 20, he became a serial killer, and killed ladies between the age of 14 and 44. He would drown, stab or strangle his victims. He wasn’t arrested until about 8 years after, though, because no one initially suspected him. He was sentenced to 60 years, but could have been released early in 2006, however the rule permitting him to be released early was abolished. He died in 2007 from cancer at the age of 53.

David Berkowitz

David Richard Berkowitz was also known as the Son of Sam and the .44 caliber killer, because he shot people with his .44 cailber Charter Arms Bulldog. In 1977 he confessed to killing 6 people and wounding 7, although he later said that he himself only killed 3 people and wounded 4, and that the rest were killed be members of a satanic cult that he once was part of. As a child, he was adopted by Pearl and Nathan Berkowitz even though his mother was still alive. When he was 13, Pearl died, and David didn’t like the lady Nathan remarried. He said his step-sister was into witchcraft. Many of his victims were murdered in cars. Most of the time, one died and the other lived to give a description of David. He supposedly liked killing women with long, flowing hair. He was sentenced to 365 years in prison and is currently still alive at the age of 56.

Henry Lee Lucas

Henry Lee Lucas was once known as America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer. His relatives probably had a big influence on him. His mother was a prostitute and one of his relatives wanted him to have sex with a goat when he was 10. Both his parents were alcoholics. His mother used to hit him and his 8 other siblings for no reason and she used to make him watch her have sex with men.  Once, after she hit him, he went into a coma for 3 days. When he was 10, his brother stabbed him in the eye and his mother didn’t bother about it for 4 days and it got infected. He had to get a glass eye. He admitted to later killing his mother. He is supposed to have raped a lot of women. He also admitted to around 500 murders. He was sentenced to life in prison, and died in 2001 at the age of 64.

    @ 3adas23q: You label “syedibrahim” as Ignorant but is he really the one who has got “major ignorance” or not…? I mean no offence brother but, as a matter of fact, America IS INDEED the worst environment for a child to grow… Especialy as far as Violence against life & property and Ignorance is concerned, it is widely promoted by all means:

    -Television (apart from forming a non-moral, brain-washed, mind-controled nation by rooting apathy/wrong values/mass-trendism into people’s minds, a little kid get to see over 1000 murders, rapes, arsons, theft acts, riots, bloody pursuits etc before the very age of 10!!!)

    -Military (America has commited the most ruthless war crimes in history, not to mention that all of the phenomenical “Peace-keeping” military missions/campaigns are either in the name of money/gold/oil or to “take out” people or political/army leaders that oppose to the American Political/Economical/Regional interests… Since when abusing and killing inocent women and child is called “Patriotism” and means being a “Real Man”??!)

    - Movies & Video Games (the whole Hollywood and Video Games industry include a huge amount of Violence/Gore/Drugs/Crime in its projects, even those that are “R” and “X” Rated can be easily accessible to minors via the Internet)

    I got even more examples to mention, like Politics, Law and Social affairs but that would turn this post to an article (it’a already long enough)…

    Now take all these information above into your concern and, after you’re done thinking them thoroughly, ask yourself: Am I really sure about the “American Dream” that I’m “served” or the real ignorant one is myself?!!

    Love, Peace and Unity to the whole world!

    @Santo Muerto
    Good-luck darling!

    As evil as these people are, it is something so interesting to read upon.
    Without people like Albert Fish to have existed, I don\\\\\\\’t think we would be as advanced in psychology field.

    Then again… if we didn\\\\\\\’t have any of this the world would be a lot better. Just more boring.
