Nine Of The Most Wretched Serial Killers We Bet You Never Heard Of Before

Posted by Missy aka Tizzy in History On 3rd February 2018

Anyone who watches true crime documentaries knows that serial killers are motivated by becoming famous for their heinous acts. They thrive on the idea of becoming the next Jack the Ripper while murdering their way into history books. These serial killers failed to make history even though they killed a ton of people. No one knows their names.

Dorothea Puente

Dorothea Puente used to rent rooms inside her Sacremento home to the elderly and mentally handicapped back in the '80s. She would murder her tenants before cashing their social security checks. The tenants who did not get killed were still having their money taken by her. Police says she was getting about $5000 a month. She was charged with nine murders, seven of those bodies were found buried in her backyard. The newspapers had called her the Death House Landlady.


Edmund Kemper

Edmund Kemper was a vile human being. Not only was he a serial killer, he was also a rapist, necrophile, and a cannibal by the age of 15. A famous quote from American Physco, wrongly attributed to Ed Gein, is actually something Kemper said: "When I see a pretty girl walking down the street, I think two things. One part of me wants to take her out, talk to her, be real nice and sweet and treat her right...and the other part of me wonders what her head would look like on a stick."

Robert Hansen

Robert Hansen was known as the "Butcher Baker". Between 1971 and 1983, he abducted, raped, and murdered at least 17 but possibly 30 women in the Anchorage, Alaska area. He hunted these women through the woods using guns and other weapons. He was eventually arrested and sentenced to 461 years on top of a life sentence for his crimes.


Leonarda Cianciulli

This lady was just sick. She was an Italian serial killer who ended up turning three female victims into soap and teacakes. They called her the "Soap-Maker of Correggio". She ended up getting sentenced to 30 years in prison and three years in a criminal mental asylum.
