Topics: List of serial killers by number of victims - Wikipedia
A serial killer is a person who murders three or more people, in two or more separate events over a period of time, for primarily psychological reasons.  There are gaps of time between the killings, which may range from a few hours to many years. This list shows serial killers from the 20th century to present day by number of victims. In many cases, the exact number of victims assigned to a serial killer is not known, and even if that person is convicted of a few, there can be the possibility that he/she killed many more.
This list does not necessarily include war criminals or members of democidal governments, such as Adolf Hitler , Hideki Tojo , Joseph Stalin , or Pol Pot.
This list is a compilation of modern serial killers currently with the highest verifiable murder count, who are non-medical and working alone.
