Some serial killers like to boast, while others take their dark secrets to their graves. Either way, figuring out what makes their warped minds work is sometimes beyond even the best psychologists.

10. Alfred Gaynor
From April 1995 to February 1998, Alfred Gaynor cold-bloodedly killed a total of nine women, all in Springfield, Massachusetts, and all in horrific circumstances. The former handyman was finally apprehended, though, and he is currently serving eight life sentences, giving him plenty of time to work on his macabre art.
Paintings such as Murder Beach, seen above, give a disturbing insight into Gaynor’s mind. It is perhaps easy to see the twisted imagination that saw him leave his victims’ bodies in grotesque poses, often for their loved ones to find, at work here.
