new (tewety years ago). Now the police is researching serial killers
(tueur en s鲩e), and, by a strange coﮣodence, it founds! But there were a lot of serial killers before: Gilles de Rais, the most famous, who was fighting with Jeanne of Arc again the English, and raped, tortured, and murdered about 150 little boys (we don't know exactly how many because he was a Lord, and the children are poor children, so in that histrical context, not really important... poor children life didn't matter!), Landru of course (Charlie Chaplin made a movie about him :"Monsieur Verdoux", doctor Petiot, but the booth are not exactly serial killers, even they killed a lot of people, because they killed for money.
