Serial Killers:

The term was coined in 1976 by Robert K. Ressler, and was adopted to describe any murderer that kills 3 or more people in a series over a relatively long time. The time interval, referred to as a cooling off period, may be days, weeks, months or years. The cooling off period is the main difference between serial murderers and other multiple murderers. Serial killers can go on for months or even years before they are caught. It is estimated that there are at least 35 serial killers active in the United States today, right now.
