dc.description.abstract The names John Wayne Gacy, Ed Kemper, and Ted Bundy were not made famous by anything good they did. In fact, these three men were some of the most notorious serial killers that the United States has ever seen. Each man was very different in the way he killed, his victim choice, and his general personality. In this paper, I describe the general background and actions of each killer, and then give a profile of each killer. Criminal profiling is a recent trend, but law enforcement now utilizes criminal profilers to examine crimes and crime scenes to help get an idea of the personality of the person responsible. Finally, I explain the gifted characteristics that each killer possessed, as this project was inspired after taking a class on giftedness.
