Weekend Reading: Five Most Infamous Argentine Serial Killers


While America is the world’s capital of serial killing, other countries bring a distinct local flavour of crazy to their murderers. The Argentina Independent chronicles five of the most notorious murderers the country has produced.

While none of these killers have quite the body count of their peers elsewhere, they bring unique gaucho charm to their horrible actions, from the killer dentist to the woman who poisoned people to afford her expensive lifestyle.

My personal favourite is Cayetano Godino, known as “El Petiso Orejudo” or “The Big Eared Midget”, a vertically challenged killer from the early 20th century who enjoyed lighting his victims on fire.
