A charming neighbor, John Wayne Gacy was one of the greatest serial killers in US history.
An investigation revealed that Gacy's childhood was not calm. Beaten and ridiculed by his father, he was also sexually assaulted by a friend of his family at the age of nine. This did not prevent him from forging himself an image of respectable man, involved in his community. A father, twice married, and a successful business man, he also liked to dress up as a clown at birthday parties. It was during this period that he began his sordid assault and, arrested in 1978, he became known as the "killer clown". A terrible murderer, he sexually assaulted his victims before strangling them. A total of 33 corpses of young men were found in his house in Chicago.

One of the best-known criminals in history, he is also one of the most outspoken. Charismatic, he founded at 32 years a hippie community mainly composed of women, a sect he called "The Family". Based on theft, drug trafficking and sexual slavery, the life in this community is not very good and the murders came to complete this sordid picture. Deeply racist, Manson commissioned a series of murders in the handsome neighborhoods of Los Angeles, carried out by his followers, with the aim of provoking disorder and passing these murders to those carried out by the black community.
He became particularly famous after the murder of actress Sharon Tate, wife of Roman Polanski, 8 months pregnant.

One of the most significant murders in history: that of one of the presidents of the United States, John F. Kennedy. His murderer is none other than Lee Harvey Oswald, a murderer who suffers a dark spell after he was embarked by the police. Indeed, he was shot in the police station where he was by a Jack Rubenstein, aka Jack Ruby, before he confessed his crime. This leaves, even today, cast doubt on the identity of the killer of the 35th president of the United States.
4. Victims of gangster Al Capone

Recovered again by the police, he was sentenced to death three times in two different trials and was executed on January 24, 1989 in Florida State Prison.

A serial killer almost no longer present, the horror of his crimes against five prostitutes in the poor Whitechap district of London, in 1888, places him unquestionably in this list of great criminal cases. Murderer who intrigues, his identity remains one of the greatest mysteries of the police history, just as the reasons that pushed him to these barbaric acts. The peculiarity of his crimes is reflected by his cutting of the victims, so much so that they were all disfigured. So much so that the last prostitute to succumb to her assaults was unrecognizable when the police arrived.
Now all out of reach or dead, this idea may make you sleep better tonight!
