The FBI estimates that there could be as many as 500 serial killers on the loose in the United States.   According to many studies, the majority of all serial killers suffer from addiction to drugs and alcohol.  Many serial killers get drunk before they kill and try to deal with their psychosis by drinking, often making it much worse.

An alcoholic and outright egomaniac, Ted Bundy told journalists that he drank before murder.  Whether he needed to get drunk to murder or the drinking triggered his sexual violence remains to be seen but it was most likely a combination of both.  Bundy murdered at least 40 women and possibly twice that number.  Perhaps his most violent and infamous murders happened after Bundy left a bar one night in Florida.  Bundy was drunk and angry that he had been rejected by a girl in the bar.  The intoxicated and sexually enraged Ted Bundy entered a sorority house and murdered two college girls while badly injuring two others.  These are believed to be Ted Bundy’s last murders.  When arrested, Bundy was actually still drunk from the night before and completely disoriented.  Ted Bundy was executed by the electric chair in Florida in 1989.  Author James Graham believes that if Bundy had been treated for alcoholism at an early age, he would not have murdered anyone.

An alcoholic, homosexual and cannibal, Jeffery Dahmer killed 17 young men and boys in Milwaukee Wisconsin.  Dahmer was an alcoholic in his early teens, many times getting drunk first thing in the morning before high school classes, even during class.  The early alcoholism was linked to Jeffery’s inability to deal with confusions about his sexuality.  This social awkwardness led to isolation and loneliness may have fueled Dahmers’ homicidal thoughts.  When he got older, Dahmer entered the army and displayed outright alcoholism and violence according to other soldiers.  According to his stepmother, Dahmer was discharged from the army for drinking problems.  A premeditated murderer, Dahmer sometimes sat in the bar drinking all night until he picked up a man to take home.  Dahmer murdered most of his victims when he was in a drunken sexual rage.  Jeffery Dahmer was killed in prison in 1994 by 25 year old inmate Christopher Scaver.  Scaver beat Dahmer to death with a broom handle.  Dahmers’ murder sparked a nationwide movement to put famous inmates in protective custody.

Perhaps the creepiest serial killer we can think of, the clown dressing alcoholic drug addicted homosexual Gacy murdered 33 young men and boys.  Gacy drank scotch, grain alcohol and heavily abused valium.  Just like Bundy, Gacy was arrested while drunk and probably high on pills.  Also like Bundy, Gacy showed no remorse.  Gacy would lure young men to his house in hope of employment with his contracting company.  Gacy would handcuff the boys, rape, torture and murder them by strangulation.  John Wayne Gacy was executed by lethal injection on May 10th 1994 in Illinois.
