9.) RICHARD CHASE: He believed that the Nazis were "turning his blood into powder by poison they had planted below his soap dish". Not only was he crazy but he was constantly afraid that he would run out of blood so he would shoot his victims, have sex with their dead bodys and then bathe in the blood form their wounds. He killed several small children and then ate their internal organs and drank their blood. He was arrested and sentenced to death by the gas chamber but he committed suicide before that could happen in 1980.

10.) ANDREI CHIKATILO: He is known as the "Red Ripper" because of the crimes he committed. He butchered 53 women and children between 1978 and 1990. He would completely butcher their bodies but the government wasn't very concerned because he lived in the Soviet era. He usually preyed on prostitutes but he would grab little girls whenever he could. After he was captured and arrested he was kept in a cell in the middle of the courtroom during his trial because the family members of people he killed would try and kill him any chance they want. He was eventually executed by firing squad.

8.) Both sociopathy and psychopathy are conditions that can be medically treated if diagnosed early enough. They are usually treated with therapy and medications which can help the individual lead a more normal life.

9.) Psychiatrists who are responsible for treating these people don't consider the two disorders different on terms of behavior. They see the difference between them as psychopaths having anti social personality disorder from genetics, and sociopaths having antisocial behavior as a result of environmental factors.

10.) People typically start to notice symptoms of both disorders when the person is 15 years of age. In the beginning stages of both they will hurt animals and will then escalate to hurting humans without feeling guilty for what they have done.

6.) ALBERT FISH: When he was finally captured he admitted to molesting more than 400 children. Some of his other acts included pedophilia, cannibalism, and murder. Many of the victims were African Americans because he thought that they wouldn't be missed so he was less likely to get caught. Only 3 of the murders he confessed to committing were confirmed however he admitted to having killed hundreds of people.

7.) BELLE GUNNESS: Although most serial killers are male, not all of them fall into this category. Gunness was thought to have killed over 40 people on her farm in Indiana including her 2 children, husband, and other men than she would lurer onto the farm with personal ads. She was said to have died in a fire in 1908 but many believe she fled the country with the stollen money from all of those she had killed.
