The terms popularly used to describe these criminals are “sociopaths” or “psychopaths” which in fact is antisocial personality disorder.

The ways he would kill the young women were by strangulation, first with his hands using the chokehold then he began to use rulers by bending them. He also stated that he would kill most of his victims in his own house, in the woods, or in his truck. For many victims torture didn’t stop there because with a few of his victims he would again have sex with their helpless dead bodies. So far only 49 women have been found but hopefully more will be found to apply the death penalty to a serial killer that truly deserves it, but also for the families that lost their daughters.
