The mere words ‘Serial Killers’ sent a chill up everyone’s spines. Some serial killers are traumatized by some childhood or a horrific incident in their lives that makes them inhumane, while some suffer from a severe mental disorder and want their pain inflicted on everyone else too. Their actions already gave us goosebumps, their words will do the same. But have you thought about serial killer quotes?

#6 The Zodiac Killer
The killer’s identity remains unknown. The killer originated the name “Zodiac” in a series of taunting letters sent to the local Bay Area press. These letters included four cryptograms (or ciphers). Of the four cryptograms sent, only one has been definitively solved. He claimed to have killed 37.

#8 Theodore Robert Bundy
He was an American serial killer and rapist who would lure women away to secluded areas where he would sexually assault and then kill them. Biographer Ann Rule described him as “a sadistic sociopath who took pleasure from another human’s pain and the control he had over his victims, to the point of death, and even after”. He died in the electric chair at Raiford Prison in Starke, Florida. He’d managed to escape jail twice before that and kill a few more women. When FBI agents proposed a total tally of 36, Bundy responded, “Add one digit to that, and you’ll have it.”
