11 Most Evil People to Ever Walk the Earth

NOTE: If you’re viewing this post from a mobile phone, please scroll down to see what kind of horrific crimes each of these evil people committed.

There’s a whole lot of evil in the world.

Ever since the beginning of time, evil has existed. History is full with tales of wicked people who’ve committed unspeakable crimes, even children. They’ve lived among us, and some still do — continuing to lure in their victims with charming and deceptive tactics.

Their crimes are beyond comprehension.

But for some strange reason, society has forever been fascinated with the lives of these sadistic individuals. What motivates someone to slaughter millions of people, or consume a person’s rotting corpse?

“We serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands, we are everywhere. And there will be more of your children dead tomorrow,” said serial killer Ted Bundy.

There have seriously been so many cases that we can’t mention them all in one article. So, we were forced to narrow it down to just 10. But after hearing the atrocious crimes these people committed, we think 10 is far more than enough. We’ve included infamous dictators who had absolutely zero regard for others’ safety or welfare, including their own citizens, as well as the most prolific serial killers of the 19th and 20th century.

Jim Jones
Leader of the Peoples Temple, Jim Jones is responsible for the Jonestown Massacre, which had a death toll of approximately 918 people.

John Wayne Gacy
He murdered 33 teenage boys and young men between 1972 and 1978 in Chicago, Illinois.

Pol Pot
He is responsible for killing over two million of his own people (nearly 25 percent) as leader of the Cambodian Communist Movement.

According to most estimates, Stalin is responsible for at least 20 million deaths. Whether from executions, deliberate famine, or gulags (Soviet concentration camps), this ruler had no regard for others’ safety or welfare.

Ted Bundy
It is estimated that he killed anywhere from 40 to 100 women. He would would stun them with a blunt object, drag them to a discrete location, strangle them and then rape their corpses.

Adolf Hitler
Hitler is the most-widely known mass murderer and dictator to ever live. If you aren’t aware of the crimes against humanity he committed, you probably need to open up a history book.

Mathieu Ngirumpatse
Ngirumpatse was president of the Hutu extremist National Revolutionary Movement for Democracy and Development. He is one of the individuals responsible for the slaughter of some 800,000 people during the 1994 Rwandan genocide.

Dr. Harold Fredrick Shipman
As a trusted doctor, this guy purposely injected his patients with fatal doses of diamorphine (an opiate), causing their deaths. He then proceeded to forge their wills and inherit all of their money. In addition, he also completed cremation requests to hide the evidence.

Dr. Josef Mengele
Called the “Angel of Death,” Mengele is infamous for using young children and pregnant women for cruel medical experiments in Auschwitz during Hitler’s reign.

Jeffrey Dahmer
This American serial killer and sex offender raped, murdered and dismembered 17 boys and men between 1978 and 1991. His later murders involved cannibalism and necrophilia.

Mao Zedong
This Chinese Communist revolutionary’s faulty economics created a horrific famine, which killed about 30 million people during 1959-1962.
