Serial killers are pretty terrifying; of this there is no doubt. But of course, if there were a serial killer in your midst you’d spot them straight away, right? They’d be as easy to see as a brightly lit up Vegas casino, although far less attractive. Plus, they’d likely be swinging a hatchet, be covered in blood, and have an evil glint in their eyes. Actually, no. Serial killers usually tend to look just like everyone else, and in fact, some have even been very attractive, and this has helped them snare their prey.
Don’t believe us? Take a look at the 10 hottest serial killers you’d probably let buy you a drink.
Everyone knows Manson, and everyone knows he was a good looking, charismatic man back in the day. But, interestingly enough, he never actually committed any murders first hand. That is something many don’t know. It was his gang of infatuated followers that did the killing, most of which were enchanted young ladies.
Manson is one of the most followed serial killers, with a veritable ocean of female pen pals, despite him now being in his 80s. He is still in prison today.
As we said, you’d probably let her but you a drink. This ginger beauty with the model features is perhaps the very definition of ‘don’t judge a book by its cover.’ Charlene and husband Gerald Armond went on a killing spree, murdering 10 children and young girls over the course of 1978 and 1980. If that doesn’t give you nightmares already, she was only given 16 years and 8 months in prison for her part in the savage killings.
His moustache might be a bit old fashioned, but keep in mind his heyday was back in 1977. Him and cousin Angelo Buono went on a murder spree that took 10 lives over a single year. The pair was dubbed the Hillside Stranglers, due to being notorious for leaving bodies stashed on deserted Los Angeles hillsides. But don’t worry; they were caught in 1978, and both put away for long enough that you need not lose any sleep.
Did we say don’t lose any sleep? Just kidding. Kenneth was married in prison to a pen pal in 1989, so he has a wife who clearly finds him attractive despite, or perhaps because of, the bodies he left in his wake.
We like to call him Cheekbones of Steel, but he was more commonly referred to as the Night Stalker. Can you look beyond the torturing of 25 victims, with 13 deaths, and the pentagrams he carved into naked bodies? Once again, breathe easy. His murder spree, which ran the course of the 1980s, came to an end with him receiving 19 death sentences in 1989.
Fooled you a second time! Ramirez married Doreen Lioy in 1996. Though, he did die in 2013 so is no longer a threat.
If you still had hopes of sleep, abandon all that hope, ye who read further. Elizabeth Bathory is also known as the Blood Countess. She earned the charming nickname by murdering some 600 young women, bathing in their blood, and attempting to stay young forever.
Another notorious killer, Bundy is perhaps one of the most terrifying due to the extensive footage available of him acting as his own lawyer. Watch the footage, see him work his magic, and seriously question if you’d see his stabs coming. He murdered multiple women in 1970s, one of which was a 12-year-old girl.
You know the twist by now; He married a lady named Carole Anne Boone, who gave birth to his daughter, before he was finally executed in 1989.
Joran Van Der Sloot
One of the most recent names on the list, Joran is most commonly described as an athletic beefcake. Will he, or won’t he beat you to death with a tennis racket? Chances are yes, he would. He was convicted in 2010 of said murder by racket, and confessed behind bars to a second murder 5 years earlier.
He has been sentenced to 28 years in prison.
A lady with pouty lips and a slim figure, who cares that she murdered and then dismembered two men with a chainsaw. The so-called Ice Cream Killer, a nickname given due to her running an ice-cream parlour, and using the noise of the machines to hide the sound of her chainsaw shenanigans, has since married and had a child.
Yet another one to lose sleep over, this lady tore up the 1920s with 35 murders, including her own son, who caught on to her murderous spree and threatened to turn her in. Most fascinating of all, and the nugget of humanity in this depressing list of homicide; she claimed to have committed the murders due to being insecure about her multiple lovers.
Tiago Henrique Gomes da Rocha
And then we have Mister Gomes Da Rocha, the most recent on the list. Active from 2011 – 2014, he has 39 killings to his name. His murders were seemingly random and unmotivated; though Tiago claims his rage came from a terrible upbringing, and was also due to multiple romantic rejections.
