Jeffrey Dahmer was born in Milwaukee on May 21, 1960. He killed his first victim, Steven Hicks, with a blow to the head in 1978. Dahmer killed 17 men, molested some of them, between 1978 to 1991. Once caught he was sentenced to 15 consecutive life terms in 1992. On November 28, 1994 Dahmer was killed by fellow prisoner Christopher Scarver.
Born in 1945 in Pittsburg, Kansas, Dennis Rader committed his first murderers in 1974, strangling four members of the Otero family in their home. Later that year he began seeking fame for his killings, writing letters and reporting his crimes. His final crime was in 1991, but resurfaced in 2004 and again sought media attention. This eventually led to an arrest. He plead guilty and was ordered to serve 10 life sentences.
Born in Ohio in 1934, Charles Manson is notoriously connected to the brutal slayings of actress Sharon Tate and other Hollywood residents, but was never actually found guilty of committing the murders himself. However, he is still associated with several brutal slayings including the famous 'Tate-La Bianca' killings that have immortalized him as a living embodiment of evil. Images of his staring 'mad eyes' are still used today to illustrate countless serial-murder news stories. The Manson Family—including Charles Manson and his young, loyal drop-out disciples of murder—is thought to have carried out some 35 killings. Most were never tried, either for lack of evidence or because the perpetrators were already sentenced to life for the Tate/La Bianca killings. In May 2007, Manson was denied parole for the 11th time.
Birth date: January 20, 1959
Joel Rifkin (born January 20, 1959) was obsessed with Hitchcock's Frenzy as a young adult and began using prostitutes regularly. In 1989, he killed his first woman. He discarded the bodies of his victims so they could not be identified. But in June 1993, Rifkin was pulled over by the police who discovered a corpse in his car. He was convicted of murder the following year and later pleaded guilty to additional counts of murders. Rifkin an inmate at the Clinton Correctional Facility in New York.
Serial killer Ed Gein was obsessively devoted to his mother, a religious fanatic. After her death, Gein began robbing graves—keeping body parts as trophies, practicing necrophilia, and experimenting with human taxidermy. He then turned to murder, killing at least two women in 1957. Gein inspired film characters Norman Bates (Psycho), Jame Gumb (The Silence of the Lambs) and Leatherface (Texas Chainsaw Massacre).
