Serial Killer Series: Introduction

in blog •  last month


^Ted Bundy

I've noticed that a lot of people are fascinated by serial killers, and so I've decided to start a series of posts on the subject.
This new series will explore various serial killers, some better known than others, throughout history.

The definition of a serial killer according to the Google dictionary:

serial killer


a person who commits a series of murders, often with no apparent motive and typically following a characteristic, predictable behaviour pattern.

The definition of a serial killer according to Wikipedia:

A serial killer is typically a person who murders three or more people, usually in service of abnormal psychological gratification, with the murders taking place over more than a month and including a significant period of time between them.

Interesting fact:

Ted Bundy once saved someone from drowning. That's quite heroic for someone who killed 30 people.

The first edition of this series will be up soon. Comments are always welcome.

wow, i think it will be a popular series, Jaundre :D it is a fascinating topic !

i do feel like maybe it is a bit of a morbid interest sometimes, so i hope we will take care not to glamorize these people. im learning heaps from how the new zealanders are dealing with the recent mass-shooting terrorism, and how they focus on the victims and on the survivors.... refusing to grant infamy to the shooter.

however, in all honesty, it is a source of great fascination to me how these serial killers operated and at the end, how they were caught. i've looked up a number of them myself in the past! so i will look forward to this series from you, Jaundre <3


It's tragic, it's true. I won't glamorize them at all. It's just an interest of mine that I think some people share. I want to do more research and share my findings with whomever is interested.
Thanks for your point of view, Lise. Reading what others think will point me in the right direction.


Yesh, I know you'd have a really good and thorough perspective, not just a two-dimensional angle ! I have faith in you, Jaundre :D

(and yes yes, i am morbidly interested in them myself, maybe cuz at some point in the past i was actually wanting to write about a serial killer! but... then i got too lazy and it never got anywhere past the research stage... XD) (i think the ones i was reading up on was Gacy and Ed Gein...)
