Intended Spree

ByMark Safarik, Katherine Ramsland

Although the criteria for being a spree killer requires at least three murders at two or more locations, several people who intended their acts to result in multiple murders failed to kill the minimum or kill at two locations, and thus did not qualify for this database. Nevertheless, some deserve mention, because their serious intent was evident. These cases are not included in the total count or in the analytics in Chapter 9, and this chapter is more illustrative than exhaustive. We wanted to show some examples, and a few have unique twists.
