The World's 50 Most Prolific Serial Killers of All Time #Infographic

A serial killer is identified as one who murders three or more people for one month or more. There is usually a "cooling-down" period between individual victims. These murders are different events, typically motivated by the demands of psychological gratification. Four types also identify serial killers, each of which is described by different motives which trigger the killings.

The four types of serial killers are Hedonistic (forced to kill for fun, financial gain, or sexual gratification), Power / Control (forced to kill to gain absolute control and power over the victim), Mission (motivated to destroy some group of people through revenge or hatred, thought to be "venging angels" or "cleansers") and Visionary (they suffer from some kind of hate).
