In a case of insults leading to serial mayhem, Greek serial killer Dimitris Vakrinos claimed he murdered his victims after they made fun of his height. Standing at five feet four inches, Dimitris, 35, proved to be a powerhouse killer after confessing to committing -- over a decade -- five murders, six attempted murders, one attempted rape, four armed robberies and one attempted armed robbery. Arrested on April 9, 1997, the former taxi driver committed suicide while awaiting trial on May 12. He was found by a prison guard in the showers of the prison's isolation ward hanging by the neck from shoelaces tied to a shower head.

For years, this quiet college town was perhaps best known as home of the national Boy Scout museum. Now it is newly notorious, and its residents increasingly afraid, with the discovery that some of its teens belonged to a vampire cult. The news that four area teen-agers are suspected of beating a Florida couple to death was frightening enough. [ReadOn]

Urteil:

Paroled from a Mississippi prison in the spring of 1985, after serving time for killing his second wife, 38 year-old Viser walked into a local police station on April 29, 1986, and confessed to fatally stabbing his third wife, Ineta. In custody, Viser claimed he had killed the 49-year-old woman in self-defense, but homicide investigators found no evidence that would corroborate his story. As one county official declared, "I guess there's a lesson to be learned. If you're a woman, don't marry Thomas Viser."
