Just as popular as America is for being a super power and the most advanced nation of the world, it also suffers for being one of the most debauched nations. Believe it or not, America has been the address of some of the world’s most treacherous serial killers. Call them evil, disturbed, or simply mental; serial killers are no figments of imagination. In fact, they are very much a part of our modern society. They inflict individuals or ‘targets’ with pain using torturous devices and have become infamous for their acts. What motivates a person to turn into a serial killer is not definite. While most of them turn to killing after being victims of substance abuse and sexual, others turn after experiencing a major breakdown of civil conduct, and still others have no background for turning into terrorizing individuals. Whatever the case may be, these convicted killers and their murderous exploits have captured the attention of the public for many centuries now. America has had numerous serial killers who killed men, women, children and even infants for various reasons and motives. Though most of them have been put behind the bars, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that there are still unknown serial killers who may be walking among the general public. Find out in details about America’s most notorious serial killers, their motives behind their actions and their fate.
