Yet another rapist-murderer, Monte Rissell killed five women in Alexandria, Virginia. A sexual deviant at a very early age, Rissell committed his first rapes at the unbelievably young age of only 14.

Arrested for one of his crimes while still in High School, Rissell was sent to an institution. It didn't stop him and he fooled his counselors into thinking he was improving as he continued to rape women during short escapes and once even in the institution's parking lot.

With this accelerated violent steak it is little wonder that he began to kill much earlier than most serial killers. His first kill occurred after a rape near his own apartment complex and took place when he was just 18.

In fact, before his nineteenth birthday he had committed and been arrested for 5 murders, all taking place in or near the apartment complex. He stabbed his last victim 50-100 times according to Rissell. He is currently serving five life sentences.

Monte Rissell, a serial killer whose committed his first murder on the day he saw his ex-girlfriend with another man. A young man with several convictions for aggressive crimes, including burglary, on his record, Rissell was nineteen at the time. The girlfriend had just broken up with him via letter, and the reality of the break-up hit Rissell when he drove up to her college and spotted her with her new boyfriend. But instead of taking his anger out on her, he drove back home to Alexandria, VA. There, sitting in his car in the parking lot of his apartment complex, he steamed, drinking and getting high.

When he saw an unaccompanied woman pull into the lot, the fantasy kicked in-and he was just emboldened enough by his anger and inebriation to act on it. What he didn't know at first was that she was a prostitute, a sick coincidence given that prostitutes are victims of choice for many serial killers.

Rissell told us he was shocked when the woman tried to defuse the situation by making the sex act seem enjoyable, by trying to make him feel good. It just made him madder, and he ultimately killed her. He chased her, and they fell down a ravine, where he bashed her head against a rock and held her head under water until she drowned.

Rissell had gotten the first one out of the way, and his inhibitions were gone. He killed five women before he was caught.
