10 Bone Chilling Stories of Serial Killing Families



It’s difficult for a normal person to imagine
what it would be like to be a murderer. And if there was even just one person in your
family who had killed someone, there would be a sense of shame that would haunt you forever. But in some rare cases, an entire family is
willing to kill together on a regular basis. 10. The
Tarverdiyeva Family In the 1990s and early 2000s, a Russian housewife
named Inessa Tarverdiyeva and her husband, a dentist named Roman Podkopaev, looked like
a perfectly normal middle class family. Little did their neighbors know that they
were regularly robbing and killing people. They raised their daughters, 25-year-old Viktoria
and 13-year-old ?Anastasiya, to do the same. They were finally caught in 2009 after having
a run-in with a rival gang, who stabbed Viktoria to death. The police searched the Tarverdiyeva?s family
home, and they found that they had their own armory filled with grenades, guns, silencers,
and ammo. Later, Inessa Tarverdiyeva would proudly admit
to the crimes, saying, ?I have always been a gangster.? 9. The Chijon Family Back in the 1990s, the movie Silence of the
Lambs had everyone thinking about cannibalism. So imagine what would happen if a group of
cannibals came together to form a gang–or, as they liked to call themselves, a family. In South Korea, the Chijon Family was a group
of former convicts who were released from prison, but they were far from being reformed. They would kidnap rich people and demand ransom
for their return. If they did not get the money they asked for,
they would use an axe to chop up the bodies of their victims, and dispose of the evidence
by eating their flesh. The gang was eventually caught by police in
1994, and all six members were given the death penalty. 8. The De Jesus Gonzalez Sisters This next sibling duo are the Mexican sisters
Delfina and Maria Gonzalez. They won a Guinness World Record for ?Most
Prolific Murder Partnership? and… well, there probably shouldn?t be an award for that. But unfortunately, there is. The De Jesus Gonzalez sisters were raised
by a strict Catholic mother and an abusive father who was also a corrupt police officer. Their father told them that if they ever tried
to leave him to try and start a normal life, they would end up as sex workers. He once locked one of his daughters in jail
for 18 months simply because she had a boyfriend. When the sisters grew up, they opened a bar. They turned this bar into an underground prostitution
ring, almost as if to spite their parents. They would kidnap young women, and use them
as sex slaves. They bribed the local police force by allowing
them to sleep with the most beautiful girls for free. These women would become addicted to drugs,
and die from poor health conditions. Many of them were forced to have abortions,
and would not survive the back-alley surgeries. Sometimes, they killed women simply because
they grew tired of them. Bodies began to pile up, and it was only when
police from out of town caught wind of their operation that they were finally brought to
justice. They are responsible for the deaths of at
least 80 women. 7. The Bloody Benders In the 1800s, the state of Kansas was a new
frontier. Immigrants from other parts of the United
States were offered free land by the US government if they agreed to settle down there. This made for a perfect opportunity for small
business owners to open up an inn to help weary travelers along the way. It was also the perfect front for the serial
killing Bender family. To their neighbors, the Benders were known
as being quite eccentric. They were Spiritualists, and the daughter,
Kate, would perform seances and do psychic readings. When a guest would stay at the Bender Inn,
they would always sit at the head of the table. They were smashed over the head, murdered,
and then a trap door would open up underneath their seat to slide the body down to the basement. The bodies of at least 11 people were buried
around their cabin. After a while, the relatives of one of the
missing people came looking with a search party, and the Benders went on the run. They were never seen again. Some historians believe that the Benders were
not actually related at all, and that they were posing as a family in order to lure in
their victims. Since they were never found, the mystery will
remain unsolved. 6. The Sawney Bean Clan On the southwest coast of Scotland, the Sawney
Bean Clan was an urban legend about an inbred cannibal family that lived in a hidden cave. At night, they would attack travelers and
eat their bodies. Most agree that this was just a legend that
was made up by the English to make the Scottish look bad. It went on to inspire horror movies like The
Hills Have Eyes and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Even though most agree that this was just
a legend, over 1,000 murders were attributed to the Sawney Bean Clan. There is a good chance that they were just
used as a scapegoat whenever someone disappeared on the road. 5. The Manson Family In the 1960s, a 32-year-old man named Charles
Manson was released from prison after spending nearly his entire life behind bars. He moved to San Francisco to meet the hippies
who were seeking free love and a cultural revolution. Manson would lure in young middle-class women
and men in their teens and 20s who had run away from home to join the hippies. He sang and played guitar, and these women
became like his groupies. He moved the group to Los Angeles, where he
tried and failed to start a music career (no joke: he actually wrote a song that the Beach
Boys recorded). Manson never really had much of a family of
his own, so he called his groupies his ?family,? and convinced them that he was a sort of Messiah. Manson gave his followers mind-altering drugs,
and manipulated them to break down their sense of identity. After brainwashing them for a very long time,
he convinced them to kill people. Their most notable victim was actress Sharon
Tate, who was pregnant at the time. They also killed her friends who were visiting
that same night (among those who narrowly avoided being murdered by skipping the party:
music mogul Quincy Jones and actor Steve McQueen). Even after they were arrested and appeared
in court, the young women were still brainwashed into believing in Manson?s teachings. Apparently, this was all part of his master
plan called ?Helter Skelter.? He hoped that the murders would be pinned
on African-Americans, and that it would cause a race war between white and black people. He wanted to rise up as a new leader of the
human race. Like most insane cult leaders, their grand
master plans never came to fruition. The Manson Family were given life sentences. While they were in jail, all of the women
were de-programmed and realized just how much he had brainwashed their young minds. While they live with regret, Charles Manson
never showed any sign of remorse. 4. The Briley Brothers Three brothers named Ray, James, and Linwood
Briley lived in Richmond, Virginia. The boys were born in the 1960s and raised
by their mother and father, who had good jobs and were well respected in the community. The parents were actually very loving and
caring, and there has never been any sign that they ever abused the children. When the oldest boy, Linwood, went to middle
school he began showing signs of sociopathic behavior. He started bullying the other children. His younger brothers Ray and James looked
to him as their hero, so they began to copy Linwood and became bullies, as well. Their father attempted to discipline them
and stop their behavior, but the three of them became so violent and out of control,
their own parents became afraid of them. The mother left for fear of her own life. Their father stayed in the house to raise
his sons, but he locked himself in his bedroom every night. When he was 16, Linwood got his hands on a
loaded gun and used his neighbor for target practice. He shot and killed 57-year-old Orline Christian
while she was hanging laundry in her backyard. The police figured out the trajectory of the
bullet, and it led back to Linwood?s bedroom window. Sure enough, the bullets matched, and he was
convicted of murder. But since he was a minor, he spent just one
year in a reform school before he was released. In 1979, Linwood convinced his younger brothers
to start robbing people on a regular basis. One of them would knock on the front door,
claiming to have car trouble. Then, he would pull a knife on the homeowners,
and his two younger brothers would tie them up while they stole all of the valuables from
their home. Then, they would douse the house in kerosine
and light it on fire, leaving the people inside to burn to death. Many times, they were gaining little for their
killings. They went on to viciously rape, murder, and
torture men, women, and children for just a few dollars. They murdered 11 people in total, and were
eventually caught. After the story went public, no one wanted
to purchase the boys’?old family home, because they believed it was haunted, and that some
kind of demonic possession took over the brothers that turned them into monsters. 3. The Harpe Brothers During the American Revolution, Micajah and
Wiley Harpe were loyal to the British crown, and fought to maintain America as an English
colony. When the United States gained their independence
in 1776, the Harpe brothers and the rest of the loyalists were pushed into Appalachian
mountain territory, which became Tennessee. They still had a deep hatred for the American
revolutionaries, and for them, their loyalist cause never ended. They decided to target and kill anyone who
was traveling through the west. At that time, the western territories were
truly wild, and there was a total lack of law enforcement that could catch them. They joined up with a gang of pirates who
would steal from people traveling on boats through rivers. Even the pirates were disgusted by their lack
of morals, and the brothers earned a reputation for themselves. ?Big and Little Harpe? were completely devoid
of empathy, and would kill people just for fun. While their true kill count is unknown, they
were thought to have murdered at least 50 people, and there is no telling just how many
American patriots they killed as soldiers during the war. In 1799, a bounty was finally put on their
heads. They were captured once, but managed to escape. Eventually they were caught again and, in
1804, were finally hanged for their crimes. 2. The Papin Sisters In 1933, sisters Christine and L?a Papin were
working as maids for the Lancelin family in Le Mans, France. One day, Madame Lancelin raised her hand to
slap Christine Papin for breaking the iron. She retaliated by grabbing a nearby pewter
pot, smashing her mistress in the side of the head. Christine ordered Lea to gouge out her mistress’s
eyes with her fingers. Lancelin?s daughter was nearby, and the sisters
killed her, as well. Killing the mother and daughter was apparently
not enough to satiate their bloodlust, because they proceeded to cut deep wounds into their
legs with a knife and used a hammer to smash their skulls into tiny pieces. When Monsieur Lancelin returned to his house
that evening, the door was locked from the inside. All of the lights were turned off, except
for a single candle that was burning. He knocked and shouted, but no one answered. He reported it to the police, and they found
the gruesome scene of his wife and daughter?s bodies when they entered the house. The police assumed that a man broke into the
house and killed all four women. When they saw that the maids’ bedroom was
locked from the inside, they called a locksmith to open the door. Christine and Lea were in the same bed together,
naked except for their bathrobes. They had already taken a bath to wash off
the blood, and the bloody hammer was on their bedside table. Christine showed no emotion, simply saying,
?We were expecting you.? The two women claimed that they were being
threatened by their masters, and that it was their only choice. French philosophers were inspired by this
story, and they believed it was a sign of the lower class lashing out against the bourgeoisie. The story has inspired several books and theatrical
adaptations. People now believe that the sisters were experiencing
a shared psychosis known as ?Folie ? deux.? Christine admitted to being the mastermind
of the murder plot, so she was sentenced to death, and Lea was given 30 years of hard
labor. 1. The West-Kimbrell Clan, AKA ?The Night Riders? In the 1800s, the United States and Spanish
territories in Texas and Mexico were split by a 5,000 mile stretch of land known as ?the
neutral zone.? Neither country had any jurisdiction over
that area, so it became a perfect hideout for convicts to run from the law. This was where a convict named John West decided
to settle. During the Civil War, a man named Laws Kimbrell
fought for the Confederacy, and kept as a prisoner. When the war was over, he held onto a deep
hatred for members of the Union, and he wasn’t happy to be on the losing side. Kimbrell returned to his family home and became
an outlaw in the neutral zone. He then met West, and they decided to join
forces with both of their extended families in what became known as the West-Kimbrell
Clan. They stole from travelers making their way
through Texas. From the 1852 to 1870, the clan became known
as ?the Night Riders.? They would wait for a carriage to come along
the highway at night, and ambush the travelers, steal their belongings, and then dump their
bodies in a mass grave. A man named Napoleon Bonaparte McLaughlin
served in the Union army, and he was passionate about trying to take down the Night Riders. He tried to bring vigilante justice to the
gang, but he was outnumbered and barely escaped with his life. Eventually, the local townspeople grew tired
of living in fear of the clan, so they all came together to capture the gang members and hang them.
