Who Was the Biggest Serial Killer Ever?

Here to answer a simple question: Who was the Biggest Serial Killer Ever in the world?

We have all heard of some of the big Names out there. Jack the Ripper – Famous through out England as one of the most mysterious Serial Killers. More recently, the Suffolk Strangler. Hopefully most of you know what a serial killer is, but to clear up: It is a person who kills people (Normally randomly or following a vague trend.) It is Not a person who kills people in mass and without reason, Examples of these are Stalin and Hitler. Serial Killers normally kill due to a psychopathic disorder or mental problem. Sometimes they want revenge on people they find are against god (Gays and Prostitutes are good examples here).

Now that’s cleared up, onto the main segment. Who was the Biggest Serial Killer ever? Against common misconception – It was not Jack the Ripper. There is much obscurities as to who actually is the biggest of all time. But there are some Good candidates!

Robert Browne of Colorado state began his spree of 49 murders with the murder of a 13-year-old girl. This then triggered him to go out killing over a period of 25 years. When he was convicted in 1995 he claimed guilty to these crime and received a life sentence. How could 1 man kill so many i hear you ask? Just wait….

Gary Ridgeway, also known as the ‘Green River Killer’ was another famous American serial killer. He normally would strangle victims with anything and sometimes take part in torture, rape and Necrophilia. His murders appeared to be all prostitutes. Convicted November 2001 he was assumed to have killed 48 however, he claims to 71. The age of most of his victims is from 16-21. How Tragic and sad.

Harold Frederick Shipman was a Great British GP. He was accused of killing his victims. In January 2000, he was charged with the murder of 218 people, although the count is thought to be more around 250. He was sent to jail for life, however he ended his own life in January 2004 by hanging himself in his prison cell.

As you can see. They are phenomenal numbers of deaths. Its quite sick really. However the main reason i present you with this disturbing information it to illustrate to you the fact that these serial killers (Of mass proportions) are very recent. All within the last 30 years. Its hard to imagine that many people being killed but – the final message is, Don’t go along with any strangers. In conclusion Harold Frederick Shipman is the biggest Serial killer of all time with a colossal number.

Thank you for reading.

    What about Gilles de Rais? He wasn’t a recent killer, but he was pretty horrible. Anywhere from 80 – 600 murders, rapes and tortures [precise number of victims unknown because he burned the bodies] and all of his victims were children.

    Impossible to say who is biggest. William Lucas purported to kill hundreds but it was never proved and many serial killers are never investigated, let alone caught.

    by the way, doctor Adams killed more people than Dr. Shipman.
