Serial killers; they don't necessarily belong to a particular culture, country, or origin because of the heinous crimes they execute. Our society has taught us to value human life. However, to these psycho killers, their personal desires and fixations are much more important and justifiable than anything else in the world. Throughout history, countless serial killers and mass murderers have terrorized and killed innocent people. Although our article only provides a list of serial killers in the U.S., there are many more male and female serial killers in the world.

When I try to think about what would it truly mean to be a serial killer, I can't help but wonder what their metal status must be like. A serial killer's psychology has many twists and turns which normal human beings cannot grasp easily.

For them, the simple rules, regulations, law, and norms of the society don't mean a thing. In our following article, we have tried to list America's famous serial killers that have made their mark for the wrong reasons.

That was the end of our serial killers' list. As you went over the list, you may have noticed that there are female serial killers as well. It seem like an unnatural concept, but a mental disorder doesn't have any gender bias. Even though our world seems beautiful from the outside, inside it harbors some of the most evil-minded people as well. They prey on those who can't easily defend themselves; and that is not a heroic act. It is no doubt an offense which should result in conviction.
