98.217.95.36 (talk) 00:56, 27 May 2014 (UTC) you forgot to add one serial killer who probably beat the one on the top of the list, some one who has killed so many people but for different reasons then most serial killers have killed for. and that is "Richard Kuklinski" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Kuklinski Richard Leonard "The Iceman" Kuklinski


Kuklinski took part in a number of interviews during which he claimed to have murdered from over 100[3] to 250 men (his recollections varied) between 1948 and 1986. Three documentaries, two biographies and a feature film have been produced on Kuklinski based on his interviews and the results of the task force that brought Kuklinski to justice. His claims have not been substantiated and crime family members dispute his role in any contract killings

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done for now: How many proven victims are there? Which category would he go under? Please be very clear in where and how you want this added and provide reliable sources for the proven victim count. Thank you. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 14:08, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Harold Shipman[edit]

Harold Shipman is listed as a serial killer on his own Wikipedia page, why is he only listed under medics and not in the main list? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nonstickst (talkcontribs) 12:18, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Because he was a doctor and medical serial killers have their own category. Not sure why but it is.--Menah the Great (talk) 00:33, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Jack the what?[edit]

Jack The Ripper has been renamed to Jack the stripper by some idiot. please someone change it back. thank you

That's actually a different entry WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 03:14, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Jack the Stripper is a real serial killer from the 1960s. Jack the Ripper is in the list of serial killers before 1900 subarticle.--Menah the Great (talk) 00:47, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Belle Gunness[edit]

Can we consider the 42 killings attributed to Belle Gunness by Ray Lamphere her accepted number of victims? If so, she'd be one of the most prolific non-medical serial killers ever. And certainly the deadliest woman in the 20th century.--Menah the Great (talk) 00:51, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Belle Gunness listed twice[edit]

Here is the version of the page with both [1]. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 20:49, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Domenico Antonio Mancuso Hoyos[edit]

In these days Colombian drug lord and right-wing paramilitary chief Domenico Antonio Mancuso Hoyos has been arrested in Italy. He was wanted for more than 130 murders (source). Shall we add him to the list? --Martin Mystère (talk) 18:00, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Only if an English Wikipedia article on Mancuso exists or is created first.--Menah the Great (talk) 13:31, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
OK, but in this article there are The Hernández Brothers Sect and José Pedro Guedes, and the articles about them don't exist. --Martin Mystère (talk) 16:44, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Actually, there never has been a rule about having to have an article. I just moved the one's that didn't to a user page a couple months ago. Also the Hernandez Sect is now linked and Guedes is discussed in the Lisbon ripper article that's linked on his notes. Also, I do not think that we include like gang or drug related killings.

You're right, thanks. --Martin Mystère (talk) 18:51, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Request to remove the word 'male' from infront of each reference to 'male' nurse. Political correctness dictates that gender should not be specified for men and disregarded for women in the case of nurses, as with any other profession. It is also redundant in a list where gender can be identified by the name of the individual. Either refer to all nurses as female nurse or male nurse or remove gender from the description. Kaetor (talk) 01:14, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I have removed the "female", someone else had already removed the "male" Cannolis (talk) 13:31, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

The Zodiac Killer's period of activity was 1968 - 1974. In 1968 he committed his first proven murder and in 1974 he wrote his last official letter.
