Guy Georges (born Guy Rampillon, 15 October 1962) is a French serial killer, dubbed "The Beast of the Bastille", who was convicted of murdering seven women between 1991 and 1997.

Biography[edit]

He was born Guy Rampillon to a French mother and a Black American father (George Cartwright, a soldier [1]) who abandoned him as a small child.[1]

From 1991 to 1997, Guy Georges assaulted, tortured, raped and killed seven women in the neighbourhood of the Bastille, the Revolutionary-era Parisian prison.[2]

Georges was arrested on 26 March 1998 and admitted his guilt to police. Described by psychiatrists as a "narcissistic psychopath",[3] he was sentenced in April 2001 to life imprisonment, without the possibility of parole for 22 years.[4][5][6]
