Most evil acts committed by serial killers – Under any circumstance, these types of stories about serial killers and things related should never be regarded as a joke or anything less than vile and terrifying. While there seems to be the stigma that if you like researching serial killers and the like there’s something wrong with your head, I beg to differ.

I’ve personally done hours of research looking into the lives of serial killers, be it what they committed, their lives before the incidents, and the victims they proceeded to commit the acts on. I don’t see myself as someone with a mental issue in relation to that research because it’s interesting.
Another reason I try to dive into this topic is because it’s interesting to wonder what they themselves must have been thinking when they decided “I’m going to commit these crimes.” Documentaries and the like have done a great job of portraying these individuals in many ways, but very seldom do you see people really crack into the minds of a killer, give or take a few of course.
I do know, however, that there are psychiatrists and doctors that have done research to conclude that it can often times be due to lingering issues from their younger lives, or a brain malfunction that really began to take control later in their lives. I’m here today to not only shine light on that, but I want to go through and pick out some of the most vile and terrifying acts ever committed by a serial killer. Bear in mind, these stories are not for the faint of heart.
13. Gary Ridgeway – Killed 90+ People
Gary Ridgeway is an American serial killer currently serving life imprisonment without parole due to the convictions and confessions of his killings. Otherwise known as the Green River Killer, Gary Ridgeway committed presumably 90+ killings in the span of time between 1982 to 1998. His main focus for his killings were finding prostitutes near the areas of Seattle and Tacoma.
While there are still a few victims that remain unidentified, there has been a confirmed amount of 49 women between the ages of 12 and 38. Much like many other serial killers in history, Gary Ridgeway was said to have a fairly troubling life at home witnessing multiple violent arguments between his parents. I imagine those violent outbreaks attributed in some way to his killings later in his life, but that’s honestly tough to conclude. However, given the nature of his poor communication skills and bad grades in school, it’s very likely that multiple cases attributed to his later convictions.
