3 Famous Serial Killers of History

Celebrating the Eurochannel premiere of the French crime thriller Blood Brothers, in which a young man is the main suspect of being a serial killer behind the murder of four women, we have selected the stories of three real evil men who were behind of some of the most devious assassinations in history. These are three real serial killers!

Ted Bundy

Born in Vermont, this American serial killer is infamous for his cruel acts that not only include murder but also kidnapping, rape, and much more. Ted Bundy assaulted and killed numerous young women during the 1970s. After more than a decade of denials, he confessed to 30 homicides that he committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978. However, the true number of victims is unknown and possibly higher.

Luis Garavito

Known as “La Bestia” (The Beast), this Colombian man became one of the serial killers with most proven kills in modern days with a total of 138 victims. Some sources claim this number could reach the 200+ threshold. Luis Alfredo Garavito is a child murderer, torture killer, and rapist who attacked boys between eight and 16 years old, over a seven-year period in Colombia and neighboring countries. He is suspected of murdering over 300 victims, mostly street children.

Mikhail Popkov

Nicknamed “The Werewolf”, Mikhail Popkov is a Russian serial killer and rapist who attacked dozens of women between 1992 and 2010 in Angarsk, Irkutsk, and Vladivostok in Siberia. His number of victims reaches so far 78 but there are suspicions that the number could be higher. Popkov's crimes were motivated by suspicions that his wife had committed adultery. His victims were all women between the ages of 16 and 40 apart from one male, a policeman. The female victims were prostitutes or inebriated young women, who Popkov considered immoral.
