Perhaps the most famous serial killer of all time was Jack the Ripper, who terrorized the Whitechapel District of London in 1888.
That deranged killer attacked prostitutes, stabbed the women, slashed their throats and sometimes partially disemboweled them.
The city of New Orleans, in the years between 1910 and 1920, was likewise terrorized by some kind of madman, dubbed “The Axeman.”
