Serial Killers: The World's Most Evil
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
On an internationally acknowledged ‘Scale of Evil’, these are the world’s worst serial killers. The qualifications for entry to this list of the vilest criminals of all time are a propensity for sadism, torture and murder without a shred of remorse.
Using expert evidence, this book looks behind the shocking headlines and delves into the minds of monsters. What drove them to crime? What turned seemingly ordinary members of society into sick slayers? How did they self-justify their heinous deeds? And, quite simply, how did they get away with murder?
Included in this catalog of the world’s most evil killers are men who committed crimes so monstrous that they almost defy belief – yet to their neighbors and work colleagues, these men seemed quite normal.
Dennis Rader was a respected pillar of society yet set out on nightly killing sprees. David Parker Ray was just an ‘average working guy’ but had a torture chamber in his backyard. Fred and Rose West raised a large extended family yet violently abused and murdered their own children.
These are examples of the killers who sank to the darkest depths of depravity. Find out what made them such monsters in ‘Serial Killers: The World’s Most Evil’.

When the hunt for the ‘Backpack Killer’ got under way almost three years later following the discovery of British girls Caroline Clarke and Joanne Walters, Paul

Her baby was born in custody in January 1981 and was raised by her mother Mercedes Williams. Shortly after Gallego’s 34th birthday in July 1980, the couple were enjoying an evening out together in a bar. Despite paying the barmaid little attention throughout the evening, Gerald insisted on waiting for her in the car park at the end of her shift. He forced Virginia Mochel
house where Taylor had lived. Vonnie had been killed on 28 November 1974. Her husband Todd had tried to report her missing as soon as she disappeared, only to be waved away by a desk policeman who said that a person had to be missing for forty-eight hours before action could be taken. It was, of course, yet another fatal error in the whole sorry saga of Gary Taylor’s slayings. Taylor signed confessions to Vonnie’s murder as well as that of Houston victim Susan Jackson, 21.
