8 Vicious Serial Killers Who Turned Themselves In To Law Enforcement

While lots of serial killers have relented and confessed to their crimes after being picked up by police, very few have actually turned themselves in to the authorities, presumably because they're afraid they'll receive a death sentence or life in prison. However, a small number of serial killers have turned themselves in willingly, often because they are overcome by feelings of remorse, fear, and guilt. These killers who confessed to the police risked execution or spending the rest of their lives in jail in order to clear their consciences. Other killers turned themselves in because they knew the police were closing in on them and they figured the jig was almost up. And at least one murderer on this list may have confessed by mistake while complaining to police about another matter. Read on for a list of serial killers who surrendered, and what they did next.
