This will not be a popular topic. I understand that. If you are the squeamish type, I suggest you not read this series. I am going to pick 3-5 of the worst serial killers right now. I may do more or less as I go along in this series. This is a very unpleasant topic for a variety of reasons. The people I list are human monsters. There is simply no other way to put it. Some kill for sexual reasons. Some kill out of the sheer thrill of murder. No one is exempt from their collective list of victims. Men, women, children, young or old, rich or poor, it doesn't matter. I don't pretend to understand the rationale of a murderer. I certainly will never understand the serial killer. No one country has a monopoly on the serial killer. But, it appears that the more advanced countries have more than their share of serial killers. For the first in this series, we will discuss Javed Iqbal Mughal from Pakistan.
Javed Iqbal Mughal claimed to have killed 100 boys in an 18 month period. He was originally arrested in June of 1998 for molesting two boys. Once he was freed on bail, he immediately set out on a sexual and killing rampage. He would drug these young boys, rape them and then strangle them. But, Javed Iqbal Mughal did not end there. He would cut up the bodies of these young boys. He would then place them in vats of hydrochloric acid. Once the body remnants had liquified, he would dump them in the sewer. Some of the bodies were kept inside acid drums. Like all serial killers, Mughal would keep items such as clothing, and would take pictures to keep as trophies of his kills. The sad thing about it, no one really noticed the disappearance of all these street kids. Mughal told police he could have killed 500 if he wanted to. “I am Javed Iqbal, killer of 100 children … I hate this world, I am not
ashamed of my action and I am ready to die. I have no regrets. I killed
100 children,” he was reported to have said to investigators. With this statement, he was convicted and sentenced to hang. Unfortunately, like all serial killers, Javed Iqbal Mughal was a coward who took the coward's way out. He hung himself with bed sheets on October, 7 2001.
I've been all over the world, albeit many years ago as a young sailor in the U.S. Navy. Recovering divorcee, new in the world of blogging. I do a little computer maintenance on the side to make myself some extra money since my retirement from the federal work force. I'm now exploring the "writer" in me that wanted to come out when I graduated from high school. Alas, there was this war in Southeast Asia and...
