The Deadliest Serial Killers in Washington State’s Bloody History
Why do so many serial killers originate in Washington?
Is it all the caffeine in the Puget Sound region? Was it the influx of people moving to Washington during World War II? Whatever the cause may be (if there even is a cause), our beautiful state is plagued with a horrific fact - we have had a lot of serial killers.
Three of the most infamous serial killers in American history called Washington home for most of their lives. There are nine more on this list.
True crime has always been a fascination of mine. What drives people to become murderers? What's the difference between a sociopath and a psychopath? Why were the 1970s and 80s so rampant with serial killings? I try not to obsess over it too much, but I know I'm not alone in this interest.
I would like to clarify that I am not here to glorify murderers and sadistic monsters, merely to shed some light on a Washington state phenomenon. If you are sensitive to brutality and cruelty, please be advised that I try my best to write this story as tastefully as I can.
