Kris Busch was a known pedophile at the

time of the murders and he committed

suicide after the last victim was killed

number 10 the West Mesa Bone Collector

why does this case remain unsolved after

all the time on February 2nd 2009 the

bodies of multiple women were found

buried together

they were mostly prostitutes and had all

gone missing between 2001 and 2005 the

gruesome discovery was made by a woman

on the West Mesa of Albuquerque New

Mexico who noticed a human bone while

walking her dog the investigation and

excavation ensued and eleven bodies and

one fetus were uncovered leading police

to believe the work to be that of a

serial killer while there have been very

few leads investigators suspect that the

killings might be linked to the yearly

State Fair which draws large crowds and

prostitutes to the area police say

they're not only going after prostitutes

but also child predators number 9 the

Atlanta Ripper

in 1911 the Atlanta River began his

killing streak by year's end anywhere

from 15 to 21 women's deaths were

connected to the murderer or murderers

the victims of the Ripper were all

dispatched in the same way their throats

deeply slit each of the female victims

was black and in her 20s however it

wasn't until the sixth murder the police

began to consider the possibility of a

serial killer some speculate that the

lack of a lead as well as racial

prejudice of the time led to the delay

of the investigations and they're

ultimately being dismissed while several

men were arrested no charges were ever

brought to court and the case remains

unsolved number eight

Jack the stripper also known as the

hammersmith nudes murderer we're not

through yet this murderer appeared and

disappeared from the streets of London

in the mid 1960s this maniac earned the

moniker stripper by virtue of his habit

of undressing his victims before dumping

them the victims and two other possible

victims were all between the ages of 21

and 30 and frequently bore similar paint

Fleck marks which was thought to point

to where the murderer worked

however despite evidence found no

arrests were made

John DeRose chief superintendent of

Scotland Yard

had identified one Mungo Ireland as the

most probable culprit unfortunately

around the time a possible link was made

to Ireland he killed himself via carbon

monoxide poisoning the truth of his

guilt or innocence died with him number

seven the phantom killer the Texarkana

moonlight murders have spawned several

urban legends and films but in 1946 for

the residents of the twin cities of

Texarkana Texas and Texarkana Arkansas

it was all too real the first attack

came against Jimmy Hollis and his

girlfriend Mary Larry who had parked

their car on a secluded stretch of road

known as Lovers Lane Sam

move your hand sound familiar

both survived though Hollis sustained

skull injuries and Larry was assaulted

about a month later another couple

wasn't so lucky three weeks later two

teens were shot and killed after that a

married couple was attacked but only the

husband died Hollis and Larry were the

best lead for the killer's appearance

stating that he wore a white hood but

when the killing stopped

so did investigations number six the

servant girl Annihilator occupation with

the exception of the white women

everybody is a servant three of them are

cooks between 1884 and 1885 the people

of Austin Texas were reeling in shock

from a seemingly endless string of

brutal murders each murder took place

while the victims were in the so-called

safety of their own beds the servant

girl Annihilator 'he's name was devised

by writer oh Henry in a letter penned to

a friend remarking quote town is

fearfully dull except for the frequent

raids of the servant girl Annihilator x'

who make things lively in the dull hours

of the night she was dragged outside and

the job was finished up out in the yard

well that's one way to discuss an ax

murderer Wendy the murders ended

suddenly on Christmas Eve 1885 some

believe they only stopped as he boarded

a ship to begin his reign of terror

elsewhere

number five the Oakland County child

killer

also known as the babysitter the loss of

a child is every parent's worst

nightmare

sadly for for families in Oakland County

Michigan that nightmare came true over

13 months four children were kidnapped

and murdered the deaths resulted in the

largest murder investigation in US

history to that time several witnesses

came forward but provided no concrete

leads one witness claimed to have seen

one of the boys talked to a man in a

blue AMC Gremlin prompting investigators

to inquire after every gremlin owner in

the country if he was involved he should

have been in jail he shouldn't have been

out tonight timmy was abducted further

leads have included everything from

pedophile rings to satanic rituals for

the reason behind the abductions answer

is about the killer or killers however

remain elusive is that good enough for

the family no it's not number four

charlie chopped off this vicious killer

was known for targeting african-american

boys exclusively he earned his ghoulish

moniker from the brutal injuries he

would inflict upon his victims one of

Charlie's victims did however survive

his attack and in 1974 police

apprehended a suspect airnow Soto

caught in the act of kidnapping a Puerto

Rican boy Soto was brought in for

questioning the surviving boy said he

thought he looked like his attacker but

he couldn't be sure give me an answer

despite confessing to one of the murders

the Manhattan State Hospital a

psychiatric institution at which soda

was a patient claimed Soto could not be

guilty but did say it was possible he

could have slipped out on their watch

number three the Long Island serial

killer also known as the Craigslist

Ripper he makes seven calls describing

in graphic detail how he sexually

tortured and killed Melissa this killer

has been at it a while in 2010 a police

dog in training located the first body

it wasn't long before investigators

found more in the area alerting them to

the possibility of a serial killer as

the area was probed further bits and

pieces of bodies were found

up and down gilgo beach in Suffolk

County New York

all of the victims disposed up over a

twenty year period were associated with

the sex trade several of them soliciting

services over Craigslist almost nothing

is known about this killer except that

he is morbidly prolific the

investigation is ongoing there are

thousands of exploited servers on the

Internet so he's not going to run out of

victims anytime soon number two Jack the

Ripper gotta bring out one of the most

notorious cases in history this

unidentified serial killer sent the

Whitechapel district of London into a

panic in the late Victorian era after a

series of ghastly murders was uncovered

it's hard to think of another killer

who's inspired as much lore research or

as many theories over his identity in

part because of the extreme brutality of

the killings and the taunts the killer

sent the frustrated police his name has

taken on an almost fabled aspect so Jack

the Ripper isn't just me and getting

Holmes he's executing Seamus

the most famous tease came in the form

of the from Hell letter which was sent

with half the kidney of one of his

victims he claimed to have eaten the

other half before we identify our most

notorious entry here are a few

dishonorable mentions

[Music]

number one the Zodiac killer I'm not the

zodiac undoubtedly the most elusive

killer in American history the Zodiac

killer is like something straight out of

a Hollywood nightmare also one two pen

letters to the police he did so by way

of puzzles and complex cryptograms

boasting about his feats and demanding

that his letters be published on page

one of the newspapers or else the body

count would rise this killer would hunt

his victims usually young couples in

secluded areas before carrying out his

work similarities in method and physical

description have led some to postulate

that the Zodiac and phantom killer may

be one and the same regardless the

zodiac has left a grisly legacy all his

own

this man was a terrorist and a terrorist

that was American groan do you agree
