Most prolific murderers by number of victims

Most prolific murderers by number of victims

This is a list of the most prolific recorded murderers by confirmed number of victims. Both serial killers and spree killers are included, but acts of terrorism are excluded. The murders must be reliably referenced to have been committed "with [the murderer's] own hands." Counting victims of very prolific murderers is by no means an exact science, so individuals are listed here by the most common consensus figures, where possible. In cases of murder-suicide, the perpetrator is not included in the victim count.


Note: this list is incomplete.
