My Favourite Serial Killers

Hello you wonderful strangers. I hope you are all having a super, super day. Regardless, I thought I'd go ahead and make it way better by giving you another blog. This is definitely one I've looked forward to writing. Let me introduce you to my favourite serial killers.

Now, contrary to popular belief, there are actually a lot - like a lot of serial killers. All with their own fun little quirks. I'll admit it was difficult, but I managed to cut my list down to my top 5 - and I didn't include fiction - otherwise we'd be here for days (Hannibal Lecter you are my idol).

This list is not in any kind of order.

Aileen Wuornos:

Okay, for the laymen of this subject, Aileen is probably one of the only ones you might know. She was a prostitute, killed seven men by shooting them point blank, and received the capital punishment in 2003. But was my girl if not a genius. If you ask me, killing a few guys with a gun isn't that impressive - especially since, well you know, she was caught. But she had two documentaries made about her and a film starring Charlize Theron as her and Christina Ricci. I mean if you want to go down swinging, that is how you do it my friends.

Paul Michael Stephani:

Now this guy I just find really quite entertaining. He's definitely a lesser known serial killer and is better known as "the Weepy Voiced Killer" (the press really do like to come up with creepy names, don't they?) So here's some backstory; Paul thinks one day "hey let's kill someone" (I don't blame him) but then once he had beaten this woman to death (well nearly, but it was his first go) he then called the police. Told them he did it and was crying (hence "Weepy Voice"). Not only this, but he killed another woman a few days later...and called the police again! He was claiming he couldn't stop himself, wishing they would find him. If you want to listen to some really creepy 911 calls - check these out. But anyway, finally the pigs got him - and do you know what he said? He said that he thought killing was a part of life, like eating or driving - until he did it. I mean this guy cracks me up. How is he not more famous, seriously?

Ted Bundy:

Like Aileen, Ted Bundy is one of the most infamous of serial killers. Mainly because of the awesome things he said to freak people out during his trial. For example, "we serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands and there will be more of your children dead tomorrow". And my personal favourite; "What's one less person on the face of the earth, anyway?" To be honest I don't have a specific reason that he's one of my favourites, just I mean, come on if you read up on him he's awesome. Plus, Zac Efron is playing him in an upcoming film - yum.

Israel Keyes:

This guy. Man this guy was one I truly admired. I mean, he was so organised, so prepared. He left kill kits in different states for Christ's sake! He was a king at not getting caught. But then the idiot let his emotions get the better of him and acted when he didn't plan to. Emotions. They'll be the death of us all (pun intended). Alas, before that point he was pretty good at what he did - so he had to be up there on this list.

Elizabeth Bathory:

I know I said this list wasn't in any order, but I have to say this woman is hands down my favourite. She was a Hungarian Countess - lived in a castle with an abundance of servants. And she killed so many people - it's estimated at over 650. I'll repeat that; six-hundred and fifty. And on top of that - she was a revered and respected noblewoman! I mean if that's not living the high life I don't know what is. Granted, she ended up going coocoo for coco puffs stuck in her windowless castle - but details, details. She also had the wackiest superstitions - she bathed in the blood of young maidens to retain her youth. Everyone says that Dracula was based off Vlad the Impaler - but I argue for Countess Dracula.
