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

A serial killer is described as a person murdering three or more people for a month or more. There is usually a time of "cooling-down" between individual victims. Such murders are distinct cases, usually motivated by the psychological pleasure requirements. Four types also describe serial killers, each of which is defined by particular motivations that cause the murders.

The four types of serial killers include Hedonistic (compelled to kill for pleasure, financial gain, or sexual gratification), Power / Control (compelled to kill to gain total control and power over the victim), Mission (motivated to destroy some group of people by vengeance or hatred, considered to be "venging angels" or "cleansers"), and Visionary (they suffer from some kind of hate).
