Were serial killers only a "trend" in the 60s, 70s and 80s?

I am watching the Zodiac and most of the killings took place in the late 60s, early 70s. The Manson murders were about the same time as well as Ted Bundy. In the late 70s and early 80s you had Gacy and Ramirez but what's after that? Dahmer is the only one I can think of and he was in the mid 80s'ish. That's it. Nothing in the past 20+ years. Are serial killers a thing of the past or is it only time before one begins?

I've had very little sleep in the past day and a half and this just crossed my mind.

The Green River Killer was originally listed as killing from 1982-1985

I also forgot to mention Son of Sam and BTK killer, which both happened in the 70s and 80s.

Robert Pickton the pig farmer and Canada's worst serial killer was just recently sentenced to life in prison. He was charged in the deaths of 26 women but claims he has killed 49, some of which he fed to his pigs.

i think there are alot more as well, they just don't seem to get the publicity or the notoriety. I watch a&e constantly and have seen quite a few that have killed alot more than alot of the well known ones, but no one has heard of them. don't forget Allan Legere from new brunswick. Yes we have our very own serial killer from the maritimes.

A new one in Cali:

http://www.cnn.com/2008/CRIME/08/30/...ler/index.html

Serial killer on the loose in California, police say

From Stan Wilson
CNN
Decrease font Decrease font
Enlarge font Enlarge font

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Los Angeles, California, police detectives are looking for a serial killer who they believe killed at least 11 people, many of them prostitutes, over a 23-year period.

Los Angeles Police Deputy Chief Charlie Beck said DNA evidence and ballistics tests have convinced detectives that the same killer is connected to the slayings in Los Angeles and Inglewood.

The victims were prostitutes or drug users who were sexually assaulted and then shot and dumped in alleyways or inside dumpsters, police said.

"We have a lot of evidence and the connection between so many cases of DNA will allow us to eventually solve this," Beck said.

The most recent killing -- in January 2007 -- was tied exclusively to DNA analysis to another case after 13 years. However, detectives have not been able to identify the killer through state or federal DNA databases of convicted felons.

According to Beck, authorities are still examining over 50,000 inmates in state prison for similar crimes, but not all of them have DNA profiles.

One theory investigators are exploring about the gaps between the killings is the possibility that the killer served time in prison. Authorities are scouring files of inmates who were in prison serving time during periods of the killer's apparent inactivity.

All of the victims are young African-American females except for one black man.

The first known slaying occurred in 1985 when 29-year-old Debra Jackson was shot multiple times in the chest, police said.

Three years passed before detectives realized that the same weapon used to kill Jackson was used in seven other killings.

In 1988, a woman was sexually assaulted and shot. She survived and gave police a vague description of the suspect. However, Beck said the description was not enough for authorities to draw a composite sketch.

Those cases went cold until detectives connected three additional murders since 2002 based primarily on recently developed DNA technology.

Beck said authorities preserved fluid samples of DNA the killer left behind in earlier killings and found conclusive similarities on the body of three victims, including the most recent slaying from 2007.

Dozens of suspects that detectives previously considered were also ruled out based on DNA evidence, according to Beck.

Another theory investigators are examining is the possibility the killer may have left the state of California and committed crimes in other parts of the country.

"This is the mind of a maniac, but we have a tight victim profile and powerful evidence that has taken us across the country," Beck said. "The victims are the most vulnerable in society and we know the suspect is involved in prostitution. Eventually, we will find him."

There is also the Great Basin murders. It is unknown if a single killer is responsible for all. The reason is that the area is a good location to dump bodies. Police believe it is used by more than one serial killer. BTK is probably one of the scariest of all time. That guy is straight up evil. During his first killings, he hung a little girl. He also staked out a victim and waited in her house for her to come home. When she didn't he left her a note letting her know he was there and how lucky she was. If there was ever a time to move, that was it.

The BTK kills were quite brutal but as far as pure evil goes, I'd have to give it to Ramirez. Read Philip Carlo's book "The Night Stalker". Ramirez felt the more brutal the crime was, the more Satan would appreciate him.

I'm aware of his work. Like cutting out the eyes of one of his victims. The reason I think BTK is worse is because Ramirez was delusional. He believed he would be rewarded. His motivation isn't difficult to get your head around. Now BTK, he just liked to kill because he liked to see people suffer greatly. To me that is much more sinister than thinking the devil likes your deeds.

Charles Ng and Leonard Lake were pretty messed up. Kidnapping mothers and babies, torturing the baby to death while the mother watched and telling her the only way she would die swiftly was if she did whatever sick #### they asked.

Basically, you're not getting out of here alive. We just killed your baby, painfully, in front of you. Your only choice is be defiled willingly and die quickly or die slowly and painfully.

THAT is perverse.

Experts say that serial killers are some of the smartest people out there. That's why it takes them so long to catcht hem. If they were dumb they wouldn't be serial killers. They'd go one and out...

I think if there are any more of them out there they are getting smarter about the way they do things. Trying to stay one ahead of the law.

Angel Ramirez.....on Texas death row, caught just a couple of years ago...the infamous "railroad killer".
Technology these days makes it much easier to track down and identify killers before they get into the whole "serial killer" mode
