Television shows like Law and Order: SVU and Criminal Minds aren't always entirely fictional. In fact, many of the killers and sociopaths on those shows have been based on real people. Sometimes those people fly completely under the radar, though. They don't raise any red flags; they never bother the neighbors; and they tend to blend in quite completely. It's all the more surprising, then, when people realize their own connections to certain murderers. The friendly guy you carpooled with could easily be a deranged murderer.
Many Reddit users had extensive interactions with killers. They didn't usually realize it until months and years later, though, making the situation even more frightening. What if they had made one mistake and triggered the killer's violent tendencies?
