Serial Killers “Serial killers tend to be white, heterosexual males in their twenties and thirties who are sexually dysfunctional and have low self-esteem.

Serial killers  generally murder strangers with cooling off periods  between each crime. Many enjoy cannibalism, necrophilia  and keep trophy-like body parts as mementos of their  work. Serial killers are sadistic in nature.” This is a very disturbing page and I don’t recommend it to all.
