These 5 Stories Of Serial Killers In Virginia Will Make You Think Twice

Serial killers have long been the stuff of which legends were made – Jack the Ripper, Ted Bundy and the Mansons, just to name a few. I admit, these stories freak me out, even though I did binge watch all 8 seasons of Dexter. But while, Dexter, America’s most beloved television psychopath, might create a more sympathetic view of serial killers, the fact remains, murders that occur repeatedly and with eerie patterns and similarities are absolutely terrifying. It’s hard to imagine what goes through the minds of people able to kill with such premeditation – and it leaves the rest of us more than a little prone to looking over our shoulder.
