One can hear many stories of serial killers, across the world, the list of people committing such violent and gruesome acts is very large. However, serial killer stories, apart from spooking us, have a macabre pull to them.
So, here is a brief list of the 5 most evil (and violent) Serial Killers from the world over!
1. Tsutomu Miyazaki: (Japan) (The Human Dracula)
From Japan, Miyazaki has earned his title, most notably due to the hideous acts he committed. Miyazaki has abducted, and murdered little girls, only to commit explicit sexual acts with their bodies. On one occasion, Miyazaki has also drunk a victim’s blood and ate her hands in a murderous frenzy. His own father committed suicide after learning of these acts, prior to Miyazaki’s own execution in 2008.
2. Andrei Chikatilo: (Soviet Union) (The Butcher of Rostov)
Andrei, killing violently in the erstwhile USSR was rather notorious. He is believed to have murdered and sexually assaulted around 56 women and children. All of these horrific acts have been committed in the backdrop of the tumultuous times of the disbanding of the USSR. Finally, he had to face a firing squad after his capture in 1992.
3. Ted Bundy: (USA)
Bundy was an American serial killer, rapist, and necrophiliac. He operated across several states of the USA. Bundy himself admitted to the killing of more than 36 women. In typical circumstances, Bundy would rape and kill the women, often visiting their bodies for committing sexual acts with the cadavers. In fact, with his own lawyer saying “Ted, was the very definition of heartless evil”, he was executed by electric chair in 1989.
4. Luis Garavito: (Columbia)
Eponymous as ‘The Beast’, the Colombian is perhaps one of the world worst serial killers. Confessing to the rape and murder of 140 young boys, Garavito may have killed 300 young boys in reality, particularly from poor backgrounds. As a matter of fact, by law, serving 1853 years, Garavito will serve only 30 years by the Colombian Law, with the scope of early release as a result of good behavior.
5. Ahmad Suradji: (Indonesia) (The Sorcerer):
A cattle breeder by profession, Suradji has admitted to killing about 42 women from 1986 through 1997, as a part of his ritual.In fact, the aforementioned ritual involved the killing of the women, and burying them waist deep in a sugarcane field, with their heads facing his house. Strangely enough, the Sorcerer held the macabre belief that this ritual would grant him more power and prosperity. Suradji has thus convicted to death in 2008 by firing squad.
