  • 10 months ago
The official definition of a serial killer is someone who kills three or more people. But do they have more in common than just a statistic? The series looks deeply into contemporary serial killers, to the most meticulous killer of modern times, Sacramento's Dorothea Puente, the owner of the 'House of Horrors'. Then there are the educated killers, like Dr Harold Shipman, who is thought to have killed nearly 300 people who were his patients and Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber, who held a PhD in Mathematics. At the other end of the scale, Los Angeles serial killer Lonnie Franklin was organised but not smart, his reign of murder led to the deaths of so many disadvantaged women. Londoner Dennis Nilsen, strangled his victims with a tie, In Finland sexual predator Stephen Thomas, used his bodily fluid to kill prostitutes by infecting them with AIDS. '35 Serial Killers the World Wants to Forget' will use file vision, reenactments witness accounts, interviews with experts, friends, family, and people who just may have met them once, to create stories that investigate the mind and actions of serial killers. The series does not glamourize the killers, instead it will give us an understanding of why, why some people in society do kill, and why others see this as a fascination.

Chester Turner, according to LAPD, is the most prolific serial killer in the history of Los Angeles. Joanna Dennehy became only the third woman in UK history to be jailed forever without parole for her brutal murders of three men. In Sydney, the most vulnerable of residents were at risk from the "Granny Killer".
