It's interesting how pedophiles get an even worse wrap than murderers. And it's not unfair, going after the most innocent people, children, definitely is a gruesome crime. So, to remember the faces of criminals who have authored sufferings of many children and to remind ourselves how important children's safety is, we're presenting the 4 most dangerous pedophiles.
1. Nathaniel Bar-Jonah
Sentenced to 130 years in prison, Nathaniel Bar-Jonah was responsible for molesting, sexually abusing, torturing, and killing more than 5 children. What made Bar-Jonah especially dangerous was his inclinations towards cannibalism. Thankfully, some of the children he had abducted escaped. The pedophile died in prison in 2008.
2. Pedro Lopez
Pedro Lopez operated in Ecuador, Columbia, and Peru, collecting victims from all of these countries. The number of victims he left behind is more than 300! All of Lopez' victims were girls aged from 8 to 12. 53 of the victims, all girls, were found in a mass grave because of a flood.
The worst part of his crimes is that he ended up being released to freedom in 1998.
3. Dean Corll
Ever heard of the Candy Man? Or the Pipe Piper? Here's the man behind these nicknames, Dean Corll.
Dean Corll abducted, tortured, sexually abused and killed over 28 boys. He had two teenage accomplices who acted as his assistants, helping him carry out his crimes. One of them was also in sexual contact with Corll.
4. Earl Bradley
Earl Bradley is perhaps the most dangerous pedophile you could ever meet (hopefully not!)
While working as a pediatrician, this Delaware pedophile molested and raped over 103 children, who were his patients. All of his victims were girls, except one boy. His youngest victim was only 3 months old. His crimes added up to 471 charges, resulting in 14 consecutive life terms and an extra 165 years in prison on top.
Be careful, stay alert, and don't remember to teach your children the basic safety practices.
