I don't think Jim Jones would be classified as a serial killer.
Someone had to do it
Why not? He got them all in one whack
I didn't want to clog the board up with more spinoff threads so I took the high road.
Serial implies many incidences over a long period of time. Tuesday had it right. Mass murderer yes, serial killer no.
A serial killer is a person who has murdered three or more people over a period of more than a month, with down time (a "cooling off period") between the murders. Some sources, such as the FBI, disregard the "three or more" criterion and define the term as "a series of two or more murders, committed as separate events, usually, but not always, by one offender acting alone" or, including the vital characteristics, a minimum of two murders.
I do remember seeing a story on America's Most Wanted about Richard Ramirez as a kid and it scared the crap out of me.
Bundy was the coolest.
Why is Howard stern in the middle?
Hal would probably be some fucked up mix of all serial killers, like Sid 6.7 from "Virtuosity"
