Serial Killer Quotes That Will Chill You To The Bone

For those interested in the dark side of human nature, serial killers hold an understandable fascination. Seemingly ordinary people who turned out to be capable of acts too monstrous to comprehend, many serial killers have shown not one shred of remorse for anyone but themselves once finally apprehended.

“For all these things I am not in the least bit sorry,” said serial killer Carl Panzram in reference to the 20-plus people he claimed to have murdered and the 1,000 he claimed to have sodomized. Later, when asked for his last words just before his execution, he said, “Yes, hurry it up, you Hoosier bastard! I could kill a dozen men while you’re screwing around!”

And when it comes to chilling serial killer quotes, that’s just Carl Panzram. From John Wayne Gacy to Ted Bundy to Richard Ramirez, modern history’s most terrifying serial killers have uttered plenty of words that will creep under your skin just as much as any descriptions of their vicious crimes.

As Ted Bundy once said, “You learn what you need to kill and take care of the details. It’s like changing a tire. The first time you’re careful. By the thirtieth time, you can’t remember where you left the lug wrench.”
