I was under the belief that most do but eat a relatively small amount, or drink a little blood, just as most take souvenirs. I don't remember where I got this info (I think the Discovery Channel) but will back track to see if I can find a link to back it up
I could be wrong, there is a first time for everything
They would not have to eat parts of the victims anyway, local animals would do that. Its the body count I am mainly thinking of, a few close villages losing several members in a short period of time. Among the superstitious it would be easier to blame a werewolf then the kindly village goat herder.
Because serial killers are something of an obsession for me
Me too. You have to wonder.....WHAT THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING????? I don't see how someone can look at a young woman or child and think....God I want to strangle them and have sex with their corpse
The phenomenon of serial killers is predated by werewolf mythology,
I have to disagree here. How do we know this? How long have serial killers been around? Just because we have just started recording it doesn't mean it just started. Two cases stand out in my mind, but I cant remember their names, the Vampire Lady in Romania and the French Noble that fought with Joan of Arc, both serial killers.
I agree there
