Throughout the years, deviant psychologists have identified traits and discovered a pattern that is seen in almost every other serial killer. The similarities are so peculiar and sometimes experts even claim that they’re imitating one another. For instance, when Richard Ramirez was on the loose, he would leave satanic signs behind as evidence and threat, and this is something that Charles Manson often did.
When you look back as a normal citizen or a student of forensic and criminal psychology, you’d come across three names:Richard Ramirez, Jack the Ripper, and Bonnie & Clyde. Bonnie and Clyde are considered one as they hunted in a pack.
Now all three of them have earned a similar reputation – they were prolific burglars and terrorized the streets of their respective regions of residence. Before figuring out their similarities, let study their individual profiles.
To start off, Richard Ramirez terrorized the streets of Los Angeles for over a year – from 1984 till 1985. He was compared to Charles Manson as he used to draw satanic signs on the walls of his victim’s houses.

He would brutally murder his male victims and sexually assault the female victims. He had a strange fetish as he enjoyed and got immense thrill in seeing fear swept through the eyes of his victims. He would also ask his victims to swear by Satan and not God in their last moments.
He earned the title of the “Night Walker” and was sentenced to a life sentence. He died because of cancer in 2013 after serving his time in jail for 23 years. Watch Night Stalker - The Hunt for a Serial Killer on Netflix.

Bonnie And Clyde – a couple that connected on an emotional level – got famous for committing crimes together during the Second World War. The two were creatively inclined and had a good future ahead until something clicked and they went off. She was famously married to someone else till her last breath and he took this route after getting rejected from the Navy.
They both started small – his first arrest came right after he failed to return a rental car. Soon both became popular all over USA, and in their final moments, they were trying to ditch the law. They had hundreds of guns and bullets in their car as they fought the police. Both had 13 murders to their name.

Jack the Ripper terrorized the streets of London in the late 1800s. He famously murdered five sex workers near the Whitechapel district in East London. He had a typical way of murdering his victims – he would splash their throats and mutilate their bodies. It seemed as if he was aware of the human anatomy by the way he killed and mutilated his victims.
Till this day, nobody knows who he was and where he went and some even claim that the police was involved in sealing this case. It was all very sudden, for a few months, he notoriously roamed around the city of London, killing and mutilating sex workers, and just suddenly he stopped and never made a move.
As someone who has studied these serial killers closely, it wouldn’t be wrong to claim that they had many similarities. Some of them are discussed below.
