Whether they are soulless or psychologically sick, serial killers have the lust for blood and they truly enjoy killing people in the most heinous ways.
They come up with monstrous tricks and games to trap their prey and torture them to death. The scariest part is that it does not end with one person, they have to keep killing people to satisfy themselves.
Here is the list of nine of the most evil serial killers of all time.
1. Javed Iqbal, better known as Mukri, a Pakistani serial killer who murdered over 100 children.
Javed Iqbal, a businessman from Lahore, killed more than 100 children by strangling and dismembering them. He claimed that he kidnapped orphans and homeless kids and tortured them. He later disposed the bodies with the help of acid.
Iqbal was arrested in 1999 and was sentenced to death by hanging. The judge said to Iqbal, ‘You will be strangled to death in front of the parents whose children you killed, your body will then be cut into 100 pieces and put in acid, the same way you killed the children.’
Before his execution could take place, Iqbal committed suicide in 2001.
2. Jack (or Jill) The Ripper – The unidentified ‘women’ killer who will make your blood run cold.
Also known as the Whitechapel Murderer and Leather Apron, Jack the Ripper was an unidentified serial killer who killed the ‘Canonical five‘ and many other women in the most horrendous way in the Whitechapel district of London in 1888.
He targeted only prostitutes. He used to cut the throat into two, rip open the abdomen with a sharp knife and would slash their mouths in an evil smile (very much like the Joker from the Batman comics).
The murderer was never caught. He has inspired numerous books, TV shows, movies and unfortunately, copy-cat serial killers.
The theory is that Jack the Ripper could actually have been ‘Jill the Ripper’. While the police was looking for a man, she went about her business unsuspected.
3. Ted Bundy – The charismatic sociopath who used to lure women with his charming smile.
Ted Bundy didn’t fit the description of a sadistic killer. Gifted with charming manners, money and great looks; Ted sadly lacked a soul. He used to approach women by feigning injury so that they would help him. Once he won their trust, he would rape and then murder them. His attorney called him ‘the very definition of heartless evil’.
4. Belle Gunness – The nightmare wife who killed her husbands and children to get insurance money.
Belle Gunness, a six feet tall woman, murdered her husband and three kids and used their live insurance to buy herself a new house. She later remarried and killed her new husband as well.
Belle used to post property ads on newspaper. Whenever a potential buyer would visit her, she would rob and kill them. It is said that Belle has killed more than 40 people including her daughters, husbands and boyfriends. Do you know what is the scariest part? She was never caught!
5.Rafiq Soomro, the rickshaw driver who killed women on 9th of every month.
In 2012, a police arrested a rickshaw driver named Soomro in Karachi, who sexually assaulted and killed women on the 9th of every month. He had an accomplice, Iqbal, who is still at large.
6. Amir Qayyum – The ‘brick’ killer who murdered 14 homeless men in Lahore.
Amir’s father left the family when he was still a kid. Homeless and abandoned, he took shelter in his uncle’s home. When Amir was in early 20s, his uncle was murdered by a man who was never caught. Alone and unstable, he went on a killing spree to take ‘revenge’. For one whole year, he killed around 14 homeless men while they were sleeping by beating them with bricks and stones at them. He was arrested in 2005 and was sentenced to death.
7. Gul Ahmad Saeed – A serial mass murderer who murdered 14 people at once!
When his marriage got cancelled over a case of dowry, Gul killed his parents, brother and sister-in-law in anger. He later killed his fiance and her relatives. He is still at large and nobody knows what he looks like!
8. Aileen Wuornos, the first female serial killer who used to be a petty criminal.
She is the very first woman to be identified as the serial killer by FBI. Orphaned, poor and abused; Aileen had a tough childhood. While she was in early teens, she began to steal and engage in prostitution. After a string of failed relationships, she killed around seven men in a row with a firearm. She was executed in 2002.
9. Hiroshi Maeue – The Suicide Website Murderer from Japan
You would think that no one would be able to get you through the internet. Wrong! Hiroshi Maeue manipulated his victims via the internet. He was able to kill 3 people, including a 14 year old boy before he was caught. He was hanged in Osaka in 2005.
