So, the police are better at solving murders here than in China? Than Japan? Than the UK?

I would believe it if our numbers weren't so high, but the police in those places are just as capable as solving murder..

As for Mexico; the gang murders are filed under gang murder, not serial killing..

Murder and serial killing is different; Columbia, S. Africa and Jamaica are at the top of the just Murder list.. America is 24th

Murder stats

i clicked that link and wow..

It's makes you wonder about the kill count and how accurate it is.. And all the unsolved murders that could be tied to any of these or other killers..

Good find

There probably is an equal amount of serial killers in all countrys, at least the ones that Dexter does not visit anyway.

This sparked something..


What if the killers in the US are just sloppier?

The top guy Luis Garavito only got 22 years for killing and torturing at least 138 children


How on earth did that happen


and the second on the list was convicted of killing and raping 110 girls but only served 16 years and is now a free man

It's truly sickening

Believed to still be killing.


That gave me chills on the wiki page..

Kidnapping is also big in Columbia.. I'll definitely stay away

Didnt many serial killers grow up in extremely strict christian households? The more famous ones anyway...I'd say that also goes into the equasion...Ed Geinfor example had a crazy religious nutjob of a mother who kept him completely isolated,was overprotective and taught him that women are evil sinners etc. and she doesn't want to see him around them...That will f' you up mentally I reckon Oo...and all the other goodies that just come with strict religious upbringing: Shame and violence associated with sex, repressed rage, obsession with good vs. evil, fascination with living a secret life

So...with America still being full of retarded Christian nutjobs I'd put my money on religion as the main root of the problem. Especially for sexually motivated crimes...more specifically the combination of secular laws and a strict religious upbringing...

The U.S. also has the most reported rapes of any country, I found this hard to believe but the truth was even more shocking....and disappointing.

You really wouldn't think America would have these problems but I bet that's because we are all raised to think the U.S. is utopian like, leading the way for the future, the best country in the world. My, my, how I have been lied to.

I've read the books of true crime writer Ann Rule for years, and have seen a couple of notable things regarding American serial killers. It seems that a disproportionate number of them come from the Pacific Northwest, and many of them are children of mothers who were single at their birth, although they did not necessarily grow up in a single parent home, Ted Bundy being an example of that.

Also, until quite recently in history, almost all serial killers were white males. Males of other races tended more to mass murder as opposed to serial killing. All of that has begun to change, though. Now there are numerous instances of nonwhite and even female serial killers.

Stop and Think.

Maybe, just MAYBE, US serial killers are more publicized thant the others, both nationally and abroad.

The act of murder, including those that have multiple occurrences by the same perpitrator, are nothing new to society as a whole.

The difference lies in the ability and desire of the society to both identify/capture/prosecute the perp(s) and glorify the result or just get the situation over and done with.

It's all media related. Human scum are everywhere: it just depends on who is reporting on it and what/where their loyalties (i.e. finances) are derived from.

In essence; people suck. They kill because society allows them to do so.

Take a serial killer and kill his/her ENTIRE family, from parents on down to siblings and children. We'll see how many more want to go out and kill multiple other innocents for no apparent reason.

I volunteer for the execution squad.

I could get behind this IF other countries had higher serial killings or if US had less, but to say we have 76% because our detective work is better???

What makes you think Canada or Russia or China or Australia have less inept cops and detectives than here?


I DO think it has to do with some of it, sure, but to say, We only have more because we catch more, is a cop out..

Interesting thread.. Think a couple of reasons why fewer cases occure in asian countries are 1. They dont have the culture of violence that america has 2. Asian culture values human life more than western culture does alot less homicides per capita in asian countries than in western countries.
Also contrary to the misguided idea a few have here regarding police departments in other countries .. Japan has one of the best police forces in the world along with lowest crime rate.
Singapore has a good police force. China has a good police force its safer to walk the streets in most asian countries than it is in the u.s.
S&F for an interesting and excellent post squirrelnutz

If you want to be scared witless, look no further than the detailed investigations of Dave McGowan.

The following is a single sentence - probably the longest sentence I've ever read.

Spooky Hollywood:Tangled Web of Charlie Manson
By Dave McGowan
From: kennysideshow.blogspot.com...
Without further ado, we begin this journey - for no particular reason - with the aforementioned Phil Hartman, who was a highschool friend of Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, who later became a disciple of Charlie Manson, a jailhouse correspondent of John Hinckley, and the attempted assassin of President Gerald Ford, who was once a roommate of modeling entrepreneur Harry Conover, whose wife was the infamous Candy Jones, who was 'treated' by CIA-linked hypnotist William Jennings Bryan, who also 'treated' the purported Boston Strangler, Albert DeSalvo, whose name was written repetitively throughout the diaries of Sirhan Sirhan, who was also 'treated' by Bryan, who served as the technical director on The Manchurian Candidate, which was directed by John Frankenheimer, at whose beach house a dinner was held on June 5, 1968 whose attendees included "Mama" Cass Elliot, Roman Polanski, and Sharon Tate, who was killed just over a year later by followers of Charlie Manson, whose music was recorded by Doris Day's son, music producer Terry Melcher, who lived with girlfriend Candace Bergen at 10050 Cielo Drive the year before it became a slaughterhouse after being rented by Polanski, who initially was slated to pen the screenplay for Day of the Dolphin, which purported to tell the story of Dr. John Lilly, who was a friend of Timothy Leary, whose Mellon family-owned Millbrook estate was frequently visited by Dr. Max "Feelgood" Jacobson, who once 'treated' Judy Garland and who served as the personal physician of John Kennedy, whose assassination prompted the shelving of the film The Manchurian Candidate by its star, Frank Sinatra, who was a frequent companion of fellow 'Brat Packer' Sammy Davis, Jr., who was an acknowledged member of Anton LaVey's Church of Satan, from where Manson recruited killers Bobby "Cupid" Beausoleil and Susan "Sexy Sadie" Atkins, who confessed to her cellmates that she had stabbed to death actress Sharon Tate, who was inducted into witchcraft on the set of the Polanski-directed film The Fearless Vampire Killers by Alexander "King of the Witches" Saunders, who received 'training' as a child from Aleister Crowley, whose followers included Anton LaVey and fellow Church of Satan member Kenneth Anger, who was the roommate (and probable lover) of Family member Bobby Beausoleil, who once appeared in an underground film titled Mondo Hollywood, which also featured hairdresser and Manson victim Jay Sebring, who was a former lover of Sharon Tate, who was a friend of a wealthy widow named Charlene Caffritz, who played host to - and filmed the exploits of - Charlie and some of his girls, who also lived for a time with Beach Boy Dennis Wilson, who recorded a song penned by Charlie, who was an occasional member of the entourage of Mama Cass, who was listed as a defense witness for Charlie's trial (but never called), as was her Mamas and the Papas band-mate John Phillips, who was close to Polanski, Tate, Melcher, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Cass Elliot, and film producer Robert Evans, who was working with - and very likely contracted the execution killing of - Roy Radin, whose assistant was Michael DeVinko aka Mickie DeVinko aka Mickie Deans, who married - just a few months before her untimely death - Wizard of Oz star Judy Garland, who as a teen was flooded with phone messages and telegrams by admirer Oscar Levant, whose dead body was found by Candace Bergen, who - as a photojournalist for Life magazine - covered the preempted presidential campaign of Robert Kennedy, who was romantically linked to Marilyn Monroe, who was also linked to Anton LaVey, who appeared in Kenneth Anger's Invocation of My Demon Brother (released in August of 1969) along with Bobby Beausoleil, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who was a guest at the 1968 London wedding of Sharon Tate to Roman Polanski, who - during a nude photo shoot - molested a thirteen-year-old girl at the home of Jack Nicholson, who was a friend of Cass Elliot, as were Robert Evans and Manson victims Jay Sebring, Voytek Frykowski and Abigail Folger, who provided funding for the Himalayan Academy, which Kenneth Anger helped form with Timothy Leary, who was at the side of the stage at the 1969 Altamont concert where - while the Rolling Stones played the Process Church-inspired Sympathy for the Devil* - a fan was killed on film by the Hell's Angels, who had been romanticized and transformed into anti-establishment heroes in the film Scorpio Rising by Kenneth Anger and the book Hell's Angels by Hunter S. Thompson, both of whom have been accused of making snuff films** for private collectors, which was also a favorite pastime of Charlie Manson, one of whose underage recruits was Didi Lansbury, who had written permission to travel with Charlie from her mother, Angela Lansbury, who starred as the control agent in The Manchurian Candidate, which was based on the novel of the same name by Richard Condon, who once served as a publicist for Walt Disney, who once owned the home where the Manson Family slaughtered Leno LaBianca and wife Rosemary, who was involved in the trafficking of drugs, as were many of those in this twisted saga, including Charles Manson, victims Voytek Frykowski and Abigail Folger, John Phillips and Kenneth Anger, who was a huge fan of the dark and violent imagery of the Rosicrucian-inspired, L. Frank Baum-penned Oz books, which inspired the band The Magick Powerhouse of Oz, which was led by Bobby Beausoleil, who was also at one time in the band Love with Arthur Lee, four of whose members later turned up dead or missing and presumed dead, as did Charlene Caffritz, Cass Elliot (who allegedly choked on a sandwich in 1974), Dennis Wilson (who allegedly drowned on December 28, 1983), and Gram Parsons, whose corpse was stolen and burned at Joshua Tree on the autumnal equinox of 1973 by his band's road manager, Phil Kaufman, who was a good friend from prison of Charlie Manson, who met (at Cass Elliot's house) and received money from victim Abigail Folger, who also funded Kenneth Anger, who at various times lived with both Jimmy Page (who purchased Crowley's home and many of his artifacts) and Keith Richards & Anita Pallenberg, whose home - in 1979 - yielded the body of a teenager who had been shot to death, as was John Lennon the next year by Mark David Chapman, who shortly before doing so met with - and offered a gift of live bullets to - Kenneth Anger, whose films were cited as a major influence by photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, who was implicated by witnesses in the Halloween 1981 execution killing of New York photographer Ronald Sisman (a close associate of Roy Radin), who was reportedly in possession of a snuff film of one of the Son of Sam murders, which were allegedly committed by David Berkowitz, who from prison accurately described the Sisman killing before it happened and who took the fall for the Son of Sam murders to cover up the involvement of others, including possibly Roy Radin and wealthy art dealer Andrew Crispo, who admitted being present at the site of a ritual murder which was committed by a man named Bernard LeGeros, who was the son of a State Department official, as was Pic Dawson, who was a regular member of the entourage of Cass Elliot, as was a one-time bodyguard of publisher Larry Flynt named Bill Mentzer, who was convicted of killing Radin and who was suspected of involvement in numerous other contract murders, including some of those attributed to David Berkowitz, who was 'examined' by psychiatrist/hypnotist Daniel Schwartz, as was Mark David Chapman, who was obsessed with the film The Wizard of Oz and the book The Catcher in the Rye, which was written by reclusive author J.D. Salinger, who served in the OSS with Henry Kissinger, who was a close adviser to Gerald Ford, who once met and shook hands with Mark David Chapman, who was 'examined' by psychiatrist/hypnotist Bernard Diamond, who also 'examined' Sirhan Sirhan, who had connections to the Process Church, as did many of those ensnared in this sordid web, including Kenneth Anger, John Phillips, Roy Radin, David Berkowitz and Charlie Manson, who attended a New Year's Eve party at the home of John Phillips, who wrote the siren song of the 'Summer of Love,' bringing thousands of hippies and flower children streaming into San Francisco and into the hands of such figures as Louis "Dr. Jolly" West, Anton LaVey, Charlie Manson, Bobby Beausoleil, Timothy Leary and Kenneth Anger, who - just three days after the suspicious death of Rolling Stone Brian Jones - filmed the Hell's Angels stomping the crowd at a 1969 Stones concert in London, just five months before they did the very same thing to the crowd at Altamont, which was organized by San Francisco attorney Melvin Belli, who consulted with F. Lee Bailey whilst the latter was busily railroading Albert DeSalvo and later consulted with Richard "The Night Stalker" Ramirez, who was offered an honorary membership in the Church of Satan by Anton LaVey's daughter Zeena, who along with boyfriend Nickolas Schreck staged an event on 8-8-88 celebrating the slaughter of the victims of the Manson Family, who some researchers believe were involved in the murders attributed to the "Zodiac," who called and sent correspondence to Melvin Belli, whose clients included the widow of Hermann Goering and Jack Ruby, who assassinated Lee Harvey Oswald, the purported assassin of John Kennedy, whose brother Robert was romantically linked to Jayne Mansfield, as was Anton LaVey, who served as Roman Polanski's technical director on the 1968 film Rosemary's Baby, which was set in New York's Dakota Apartments, where John Lennon was gunned down by Mark David Chapman, who shared a fixation on The Catcher in the Rye with failed assassin John Hinckley, Jr., who stalked actress Jodie Foster, who is working on a film biography of Leni Riefenstahl, who was met by - and admired by - fellow filmmaker Kenneth Anger, who laced his film Scorpio Rising with Nazi imagery, including the prominent use of swastikas, not unlike the one carved into the forehead of Charlie Manson, who - at the Cielo Drive home of Polanski and Tate - had a chance meeting with Nancy Sinatra, the daughter of Frank Sinatra, who was married to actress Mia Farrow, who starred in the Polanski-directed Rosemary's Baby, which was produced by Robert Evans, a friend of Henry Kissinger, who was the righthand man of President Richard Nixon, whose election was ensured by the assassination of Robert Kennedy by Sirhan Sirhan, who was yet another client of Melvin Belli, as were the Hell's Angels and Nazi-collaborator Errol Flynn, who made two films with Ronald Reagan, who was an occasional visitor to the childhood home of Candace Bergen, who - as a photojournalist - chronicled the short-lived administration of Gerald Ford, who married one of his friend Harry Conover's 'Covergirls,' who later opened the Betty Ford Center, where various celebrities in and out of this web routinely check in for tune-ups.

This guy really creeps me out: Kenneth Anger

There's several things about this guy that would send red flags, but i can't put my finger on why he bothers me....



"[Lucifer is] a teenage rebel. Lucifer must be played by a teenage boy. It's type-casting. I'm a pagan and the film is a real invocation of Lucifer. I'm much realer than von Stroheim. The film contained real black magicians, a real ceremony, real altars, real human blood, and a real magic circle consecrated with blood and cum." Kenneth Anger


Yeah, that might be it.....

Not only that but almost half of his 'work' has been lost.. They're all short films about weird stuff, but Lucifer Rising doesn't have any synopsis, just this picture

The more i look into this, the more i think it's true.....



n April 12–13, 1980, Haller attended a dinner party at the Southampton, Long Island home of film producer Roy Radin. Haller had been introduced to Radin by photographer Ronald Sisman,[3] and visited his home hoping to forward her stalled acting career. The day after the party, Haller was discovered on a commuter train to Manhattan, unconscious and bloodied. She claimed to have been beaten and raped during the party at Radin's home, and further alleged that the crimes had been filmed by Radin and/or others in attendance.[3][4] Radin claimed that Haller had consented to sexual games during the party.[4] The Haller case was widely covered by the New York City press.[3][4] In 1981, businessman Robert McKeage pleaded guilty to assaulting Haller, and was sentenced to 30 days imprisonment

Well to be fair the mexican ones come here to commit their murders. And usually flee to mexico before getting caught. Just look at how the border is like a damn war zone anymore drug cartels killing thousands of people. And they are all from Mexico!
