When you hear the term serial killer, what comes to mind?

You likely think of one of history’s most notorious serial killers, someone along the lines of the BTK, Ted Bundy, or Jack the Ripper. And while it’s easy to imagine some horrible, disfigured killer tracking down victims in the dark, the fact is that serial killers often use their personalities to disarm their victims.

Think of American Psycho‘s Patrick Bateman, a charming and debonaire young man who seems to be the definition of ‘normal’ on the exterior, but who behind closed doors is a cold-blooded killer.

That’s the case with so many of even the most famous serial killers of our lifetime, such as John Wayne Gacy and Ted Bundy, who depended on their personalities and looks to seduce their victims before killing them. In the case of people like Gary Ridgway, the Green River Killer, some murderers even used their own children to lure victims in.

Terrifying, but true. Now, many of these children have come forward.
