Addison Richards. An American actor who played a boatload of bit parts so nobody's ever heard of him. Sounds like my life alright.

Aleksandr (Alexander) Semenovich Kronrod (Russian: Алекса́ндр Семёнович Кронро́д) (October 22, 1921 – October 6, 1986) was a Soviet mathematician and computer scientist, best known for the Gauss-Kronrod quadrature formula which he published in 1964. Earlier his computations informed theoretical physics. He is also known for his contributions to economics, specifically for proposing corrections and calculating price formation for the USSR. Later, Kronrod gave his fortune and life to medicine to care for terminal cancer patients. Kronrod is remembered for his captivating personality and was admired as a student, teacher and leader.

Sounds about right.  Nod

I got a Soviet guy too. Leonid Leonov, who was apparently called "the 20th century Dostoevsky".

The number two result was a Burmese politician whose Wikipedia page lists two different death dates for him. scratch

Oh man. Laughing

Is Dahmer well-known in Europe? I ask because he's quite famous in the States; his was the first name I've recognized in this game.

I got an Austrian violinist, and an Earl who got the Victoria Cross by charging on his horse through some tribal swordsmen to save a soldier wounded by a bullet lying in the middle of them, unfortunately the soldier later died, and the soldier who covered him by firing on the swordsmen also died, and also the horse.  Embarassed but hey its the thought that counts.  Shrugging

I got an American anthropologist who published a few books on Native American culture. Not very exciting, but at least his horse wasn't killed!

I was just curious. Shrugging I couldn't think of any European serial killers off the top of my head, but there are quite a few famous American ones that continue to be taught to new generations. Dahmer was before my time but I can't remember ever not knowing who he was, through conversation, pop culture references, etc. It's kind of weird how big of a deal we make, culturally, about serial killers.

Peter Manuel
n American-born Scottish serial killer known to have killed 9 people across southern Scotland between 1956 and 1958, Manuel is suspected of having killed as many as 18 people. Police were unable to prove his guilt until his final murders, when some banknotes Manuel had been using to pay for drinks in Glasgow pubs were proven to be stolen from one of his victims. He confessed to these murders after his mother confronted him at the police station where he was being held. Manuel was hanged at Glasgow’s Barlinnie Prison for his crimes in July 1958. He was one of the last prisoners to be hanged in Scotland before they ended capital punishment.
John George Haigh
Known as the “Acid Bath Murderer” John George Haigh was an English serial killer during the 1940s. He was convicted of the murders of 6 people, although he claimed to have killed 9. A professional conmen, he targeted wealthy individuals and charmed them into believing he was a successful businessman. He lured his victims to a derelict warehouse before shooting them. He then dissolved their bodies in sulphuric acid before forging papers in order to sell their possessions and collect their life savings. Traces of human remains were found and there was sufficient evidence to convict him. In 1949 he was sentenced to death and hanged at Wandsworth Prison.
Peter Sutcliffe
Peter William Sutcliffe is a British serial killer known as “The Yorkshire Ripper”. In 1981 Sutcliffe was convicted of murdering 13 women and attempting to murder seven others. He targeted prostitutes in Leeds and Bradford area causing a climate of fear across northern England. When arrested in January 1981 for driving with false number-plates, police questioned him about the killings and he confessed. At his trial, he pleaded not guilty to murder on grounds of diminished responsibility, but his defence was rejected by the jury. He was sentenced to serve life imprisonment without patrol and remains in Broadmoor Maximum Security Mental Hospital to this day.
Dennis Nilsen
The British equivalent of Jeffrey Dahmer, Dennis Nilsen was a homosexual killer who murdered 15 gay men within home in London, England between 1978 and 1983. He retained his victims’ bodies before dissecting their remains and disposing of their bodies by burning or flushing the remains down the toilet, which led to his capture when human flesh was discovered in his sewage system. Nilsen was convicted in 1983 of six counts of murder and two of attempted murder and was sentenced to life imprisonment. He remains imprisoned at Full Sutton maximum security prison in Yorkshire, England without the chance of release.

And for Norc........

Jeffrey Dahmer
