There have been quite a lot of serial killers throughout the ages.
Most of those killers have their own signature methods, preferences for victims, peculiar behaviors, and often mental disorders.
Many stories we know today about serial killers are from those who have been apprehended by the authority, who then in custody they confessed to their crimes.
Although rare, some serial killers didn’t get to kill all their victims. It is encouraging that some people displayed tremendous amount of courage and escaped the confinement of vicious criminals.
Accounts and reports from survivors helps the police capture serial killers, but we must also realize that such testimonies can only happen when a crime has been done before; unfortunately when it comes to serial killers, a done-crime often means a life (or lives) taken.
Very rarely that we heard stories about what a serial killer did when a crime was taking place, from someone who survived the killing.
The main reason is of course such story-telling should come from people who actually survived brutal attacks from serial killers.
And let us admit, those killers didn’t just spare the lives of their victims because of mercy. Survivors’ stories are always terrifying. Here are some of them.
10 Scott Davis Hid From Richard Beasley For Hours, Bleeding
This is Richard Beasley, a convicted murderer who with the help of his teenage accomplish Brogan Rafferty, took the lives the three men. Beasley’s typical method was to lure his victims into the woods via an ad on Craigslist (that he created), saying he needed someone to care for a piece of property.
Scott Davis from South Carolina answered the Craigslist ad in early October of 2011. He was hooked by the idea of working a peaceful job away from the city crowds.
He went on to meet with Beasley and Rafferty. The three of them got in the same vehicle and supposedly took a short trip to see the property listed in the ad. Beasley asked Rafferty to pull over and said that he was going to check for some equipment.
Davis followed and suddenly heard a clicking sound on the back of his head. He turned and saw Beasley holding a gun. By some luck, the gun jammed on the first shot but the second shot hit his elbow. He fled into the woods and luckily came across a country home where he got help; but not before he had been bleeding heavily for hours.
