Is this list just about real serial killers?

malucamaluca    Wed, 04/04/2018 - 03:39

Yes, that's what I had in mind...

malucamaluca    Wed, 04/04/2018 - 18:10

Armin Meiwes was not a serial killer but maybe I'll open up the list to one-time killers in the future...

malucamaluca    Mon, 09/04/2018 - 18:29

Interesting lyrics, but I'll stick to real-life killers...

malucamaluca    Tue, 07/08/2018 - 00:46

Interesting lyrics, but I couldn't find out to which killer the lyrics are referring-

Steven Kazmierczak

Ah, I overread the referring to Northern Illinois shooting...

Decided to add the song although Gerald Friend was not convicted of murder.
His hideous crimes indicate he was capable of murder and he probably committed more crimes than the two kidnappings he was found guilty of.
