1. Donald Henry Gaskins
In the year 1969, Gaskins began picking up hitchhikers around the southern coastal highways of America. The reason why he is picking up these unaware travelers is that he is into torturing, mutilating, and eventually killing them. When Gaskins was captured because a criminal associate saw him killing two men, Gaskins confessed that he had killed 80 to 90 people. The court convicted him with murder and was then sentenced to death, but then due to some reasons, it was changed into life imprisonment without parole. In a morbid remarkable way, although Gaskins was already inside a high-security prison, he was still able to kill his fellow inmate. Gaskins was the only known inmate in death row who was able to kill an inmate.
