About Ali Kaya's section[edit]

Ali Kaya's section says that he is currently on the run and cites this (www.hurriyet.com.tr/gundem/25504130.asp) as its source. However, Ali Kaya's article both mentions that escape and cites that same source for that claim, but also says that he was subsequently captured and cites this (http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/serial-murderer-nicknamed-baby-faced-killer-escapes-from-prison-in-gaziantep.aspx?pageID=238&nID=60612&NewsCatID=341) and this (www.hurriyet.com.tr/gundem/25931349.asp) as sources for that claim. So shouldn't this article also mention that he was captured rather than say that he is "currently on the run"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.167.173.189 (talk) 00:55, 25 December 2015 (UTC)

Czech Republic - Petr Kramný - 2 victims (Wife and daughter) in 2013. Sentenced to 28 years of prison in January 2016. 188.175.191.210 (talk) 08:57, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done - we don't have an article on Petr Kramný and even if we did have the article starts "A serial killer is a person who murders three or more people, in two or more separate events" so 2 victims is insufficient. - Arjayay (talk) 17:52, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
Arjayay, although some definitions of "serial killer" include at least two murders, as stated in the lead of the Serial killer article, I agree with you not granting the IP's wish. There is more to serial killing than just the number of bodies, and that is also made clear in the Serial killer article. A person can have murdered three people, such as due to a gang affiliation, and still not be a serial killer. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 22:26, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

Please add Albert Fish, since he was a serial killer with at least 3 confirmed victims. 67.3.169.176 (talk) 14:49, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Pictogram voting wait.svg Already done He's listed under the "Serial killers with fewer than 5 proven victims" section Cannolis (talk) 15:10, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
