Robert Hansen Biography
(American Serial Killer)
Birthday: February 15, 1939 (Aquarius)
Born In: Estherville, Iowa, United States
Robert Christian Hansen was a convicted serial killer from America who abducted, raped, and murdered at least 17 women in and around Anchorage, Alaska, in the 1970s and early 1980s. A proficient hunter and tracker since childhood, Hansen chased down his victims in the Alaskan wilderness with a Ruger Mini-14 and a knife. Shy and timid as a child, he developed a distinct stutter, which, in addition to severe acne scars, had rendered him undesirable to most girls at his school. As he grew up, he began to despise them more and more. He briefly served in the United States Army Reserve before working for a police academy in Pocahontas, Iowa as an assistant drill instructor. In December 1960, he was arrested for the first time, for committing arson. In June 1983, one of his intended victims escaped and informed the police. While he was let go that time because of insufficient evidence, the bodies of several of his victims were soon discovered. He was subsequently sent to prison for 461 years.
