The Most Dangerous Active Serial Killers In 2022

History - Science
I-70 KILLER
Between April 8 and May 7, 1992, six people were shot and killed with a .22 caliber bullet along a stretch of I-70, and due to the striking similarities between the victims, it was believed that they were all killed by the same person. The I-70 killer hasn’t been caught to this day, despite a physical description being given.
EASTBOUND STRANGLER
On November 20, 2006, the bodies of four women were found neatly discarded behind the Golden Key Motel in a suburb outside of Atlantic City. Since all four victims were strangled, the unidentified killer earned the name of the Eastbound Strangler — who has not been found in the last 15 years and might still be active even today.
WEST MESA MURDERS
In 2009, a woman discovered a human bone in West Mesa, Albuquerque, and it ended up being part of a crime scene on a scale that no one could have imagined. 11 years later, 11 women and one unborn child were found and identified as the victims of the so-called "West Mesa Bone Collector," whose identity remains a mystery to this day.
LONG ISLAND SERIAL KILLER
In 2010, four bodies were recovered from a desolate stretch of beach on the coast of Long Island, followed by six more bodies the year after. In a public statement, the police revealed that the murders were all the work of a single killer, and while many controversies have surrounded the case over the years, it still remains unsolved.
THE CHICAGO STRANGLER
In 2019, Chicago police began investigating the theory that there was a serial killer stalking the city, and to many, the investigation was long overdue. 75 women — most of them Black — had been killed via suffocation or strangulation between 2001 and 2017, and the alleged Chicago Strangler still remains unidentified to this day.
