Take this Serial Killer Quiz to find out which famous serial killer you are. We update the quiz regularly and it’s the most accurate among the other quizzes.

The infamous Jack the Ripper
We call him “Jack the Ripper,” but we don’t know who was behind one of the most notorious murder sprees in history. In 1888, the killer appeared in London’s Whitechapel district and murdered and mutilated five women, all prostitutes. The killer was thought to be a surgeon, butcher, or someone skilled with a scalpel, according to police. By sending letters outlining the crimes, the killer mocked the community and the police. Despite the fact that numerous suspects have been named over the years, the killer has never been identified.

Editor’s Picks

Dahmer, Jeffrey
Jeffrey Dahmer began killing at the age of 18 in 1978 and wasn’t arrested for murder until 1991, when a would-be victim escaped and led police back to Dahmer’s Milwaukee, Wisconsin, home. Some of the gruesome details of his murderous life were revealed through photos of mutilated bodies and body parts strewn throughout the apartment. He even had a vat of acid in which he would dispose of victims. Dahmer killed 17 people in total, the majority of whom were young black men. He was imprisoned twice, once for molestation and once for murder, and was killed by a fellow inmate in 1994.

Serial Killer Quiz

Shipman, Harold
Harold Shipman, also known as “Dr. Death,” is suspected of murdering at least 218 patients, though the total is likely to be closer to 250. Between 1972 and 1998, this doctor worked in two different offices in London, killing the entire time. He wasn’t caught until several people raised red flags, including an undertaker who was surprised by the sheer number of cremation certificates Shipman was a part of, as well as the fact that the majority of the cases involved elderly women who died in bed during the day rather than at night. The investigation was botched, and Shipman continued to kill until he became greedy and attempted to forge a will for a victim that named him beneficiary, prompting the victim’s daughter to become suspicious. He was convicted in 2000 and committed suicide in prison in 2004. Also, you must try to play this Serial Killer Quiz.

Gacy, John Wayne
John Wayne Gacy was an outgoing construction worker known by his suburban neighbors. He was involved in politics and even worked as a clown for birthday parties. He wasn’t a clown. Gacy was arrested in 1978 after a 15-year-old boy who was last seen with him went missing. It wasn’t the first time families of missing boys pointed fingers at Gacy, but it was the first time authorities took their concerns seriously. Soon after, police obtained a search warrant and gained access to the Gacy home, where they discovered nearly 30 bodies buried in a four-foot crawl space beneath his house. He was found guilty of 33 counts of murder, as well as rape and torture, and was executed by lethal injection in 1994.

About the quiz

Holmes, H.H.
H.H. Holmes, the pharmacist who turned a hotel into a torture castle, was one of Chicago’s most infamous serial killers. Prior to the 1893 World’s Fair, Holmes relocated to Chicago and began outfitting a three-story hotel with a variety of nefarious devices, such as gas lines, secret passages and trapdoors, hallways to dead ends, chutes to the basement, soundproofed padding, and torture devices were strewn throughout a maze. The gas-enabled Holmes to knock out his guests before the worst of what was to come, which was often on his surgical tables. He then burned the bodies in the furnace of the building, selling skeletons to medical schools and committing life insurance fraud. He confessed to more than 30 murders before being hanged in 1896, only discovered after a fellow con artist turned him in for failing to meet a financial agreement.

Lopez, Pedro
One of the world’s most prolific serial killers could still be alive and well. Pedro Lopez has been linked to over 300 murders in Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Tribal women were responsible for at least one-third of the murders. Police discovered the graves of more than 50 of Lopez’s preteen victims after his arrest in 1980. He was later found guilty of murdering 110 girls in Ecuador and confessed to 240 more in Colombia and Peru. The “Monster of the Andes” was released in 1998 for good behavior after only 20 years in prison. His whereabouts have remained unknown for more than 20 years.

Bundy, Ted
Ted Bundy relished the attention his murders drew, and many people in the United States were more than willing to give it to him. The western United States was his hunting ground, with an undetermined number of murders—mostly of college-age women—accumulating from Washington and Oregon all the way to Utah and Colorado. Bundy was arrested and convicted of kidnapping in Colorado, but he escaped and moved to Florida, where he killed multiple times more. Bundy’s final arrest and its aftermath captivated the nation, as the accused murderer acted as his own lawyer during what is thought to be the first televised murder trial, welcomed interviews, and boasted of the fans he had created. In 1989, he was put to death by an electric chair.
