Serial killers may kill more victims than we think

Serial killers may be responsible for up to 10 times as many U.S. deaths as previously estimated, according to an analysis by a criminologist at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.


Kenna Quinet, associate professor in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at IUPUI, makes the case for the higher death figures in an article titled, “The Missing Missing: Toward a Quantification of Serial Murder Victimization in the United States.” It was published recently in the journal Homicide Studies.

  1. I think that is possible, GB. I argue that two death sentences and one wrongful execution left the actual killer(s) free. Obviously, if the convicted didn’t do it, someone not convicted did.
