It's difficult to get a factual handle on this, since not every murder in history was reported, serial or otherwise. That aside, you might like to get Peter Vronsky's recently-published book Sons of Cain: A History of Serial Killers from the Stone Age to the Present, published by the Berkeley Press/Penguin, August 2018.

I'd recommend that book to anyone else who reads these boards, by the way. Fascinating stuff.

I’m sorry but no they weren’t. Fanciful nonsense.

The article demonstrates that much of the killings aspects were related to Venus. Kidneys/wombs are sacred to Venus for instance. As would the heart.

No it doesn’t.

As I wrote the first version of the article on the David Icke forum the Manchester arena bombings went down which is packed with Venus symbols.

David Icke, an utter loony. The Manchester bombings were nothing to do with bloody Venus

We can also tie in the mystery of Renne Le Chateau.

Of course we can. And probably the assassination of JFK, Roswell and Bigfoot swimming around in Loch Ness.
The eternal problem with conspiracy theories is, to quote the bible, ‘seek and ye shall find.’

If you look hard enough, and people spend ridiculous amounts of time doing this, you will find connections, coincidences and a fair proportion of unexplained stuff. Tie them together and tell one person, who then tells another and pretty soon someone is writing a book and signing autographs at conventions.

Regularly ask yourself a question - “ok, does this sound silly?” If the answer is “well...yes a bit.” Then it almost certainly is. Don’t get stuck down the conspiracy theorist rabbit-hole. I had a friend who got into it once and ended up needing therapy.

Most of these honor/sacrifice killings happen on a full moon, which if you know your JTR stuff, there were no full moons at the time of any of the murders. And if there were, I'm certain that the killer would have been caught due to noise from ranting some crazy non-sense to the "gods".

Don’t go there BB. A conspiracy theorist will always have a “yes but...” or a “well they would say that wouldn’t they...” or a “but if the Illuminati were involved....” or the classic “can it be a coincidence that....”
