10 Serial Killer Nicknames and Their Crimes

10 Serial Killer Nicknames and Their Crimes
MydeaMedia February 13, 2012

These people did some horrifying things. Just the thought of what they did will freeze the blood in your wains. Before they were caught, no one knew their names, so they got nicknames. Nicknames of these serial killers gave the press or the police. Just when you hear the nickname you will, pretty much get the picture what is all about and what were their crimes. These are really serious crimes, and killing and torturing someone in sadistic way is really scary. No normal person can do something like this. These were (some are still alive) seriously damaged and sick people. What made them do this is hard to tell. There must have been some trigger in their early childhood, which made them the way they are. There is no excuse for what they did, but still no one would chose that way of living if he wasn’t a sick person. I find that this was not a choice but a condition which led them to this path of darkness without possibility of coming back.

4. Dr. Thomas Cream: The Lambeth Poisoner

Operation: Decided to serially kill gay men as a New Year’s resolution in 1993.

10. The Bender Family: The Bloody Benders


Operation: Family of serial killers (John Bender, his wife Kate, son John Jr. and daughter Kate) who lured victims into their Wayside Inn as “guests of honour”.
Method: One of the men would smash their victims’ skulls open with a hammer and then one of the women would cut their throats to make sure they were dead. This usually happened to wealthy types passing by Drum Creek, to the point where travellers began to avoid the trail.
What they up to now? All dead with their “artefacts (hammers etc) Bender artefacts were eventually given to the Cherryvale Museum and still on display today. It is not as popular as Disneyland
