John Reginald Halliday Christie was a British Serial Killer who killed 7 women (two were pregnant) and a 13 month old baby in London between 1943 and 1953, although he only confessed to killing the 7 women. He hid his victim’s corpses in various locations at his home, 10 Rillington Place, Notting hill. (Which has since been demolished.) Christie was ultimately hanged for his crimes.
Like most Serial killers, Christie followed the same MO. He would invite his victims over to his flat, using various guises, such as a property viewing – to rent the flat from him. Once inside, he would gas them, rendering them unconscious before preceding to rape them. Whilst raping them he would then strangle them to death. Because of this, Christie is labelled a necrophiliac, although this is incorrect as he was clear in his confessions that he never had sex with them once they were dead.
It could be debated that his total victim count was 10, if you include the x2 fetuses of his pregnant victims and Timothy Evans, who was framed, convicted and hanged for the murder one of Christie’s crimes.
