Paul Durousseau Biography
Birthday: August 11, 1970 (Leo)
Born In: Beaumont
Paul Durousseau is an American serial killer convicted of killing seven women (including two who were pregnant) in the south-east United States between 1997 and 2003. He was initially sentenced to death which was later overturned. A native of Texas, Durousseau was raised by his mother on her own after his father deserted the family. He graduated from high school and later began working as a security guard. This was the time when he started committing offences as an adult. In November 1992, he decided to enlist in the US Army and was briefly stationed in Germany. He met his future wife there before he was dishonourably discharged for possession of stolen goods. He subsequently came back to the US and settled down with his wife in Florida. They had two children but their relationship was an abusive one. He was even jailed for 48 days for domestic battery in 2001. Despite having a criminal record, Durousseau managed to get jobs and maintained a persona that led people who knew him to refer to him as a “lewd womaniser”. The body of his first victim, Tracy Habersham, was found in September 1997. In the following six years, he killed six other women before getting arrested in June 2003. German authorities have stated that Durousseau might have murdered several local women while he was stationed there.
