    Pretty incomplete list. Should at least mention the arguably most profiler killer of them all, Lonnie Franklin, aka The Grim Sleeper. Plus, how about the violently radical “Zebra Killers”, black activists who killed only white folks? How about Benjamin Atkins, who killed 11 women inside 9 months?

      The title literally says “five.”
      Of course it doesn’t have more than five killers.

        Need to do more research. Almost half (42%) of all identified serial killers in US history have been African American, despite only being about 15% of the population.

        If whites are devils are blacks beelzebubs?

        Not all white human beings are “racists” or “white devils.” Fact is serial killers exist in all racial groups. And being black doesn’t make a person a saint or a hero. There’s lot of black devils out there, too. LOL…

    Um guys, What about Carl “Coral” Eugene Watts. He had 22 confirmed murders but everyone is sure its over 100.
