Gary Ridgway 1982-1998One of the deadlist and prolific serial killers in America. To think that he just confessed to 48 killings in 2003, all women. He was the suspect a lot and even passed a polygraph test in 1984 and continued his killing spree. The ages of the women ran from 15 to 38. In court Ridgway confessed to try to get life in prison without parole instead of the death penalty by saying, "I wanted to kill as many women I thought were prostitutes as I possibly could." How does this help? It didn't.

Robert Pickton 1980'sFrom Vancouver, Pickton and his brothers were known to throw crazy parties that would last for all hours of the night at their pig farm. There is where he would prey on his victims. In the 1980's around 60 women were reported missing. All of them were either prostitutes, drug addicts, poor or all of the above. As the investigation became deeper the name Pickton kept coming up so they paid him a little visit. The search for evidence was extravagant, it cost them 70 million to get the forensic evidence of only six victims that were fed to his pigs. He bragged about how he actually killed 49 and due to sloppiness he wasn't going to reach his goal of 50.
