27. Singapore – Tourist From Hell (aka The Garden City Butcher)

John Martin Scripps was a petty thief, turned drug smuggler, turned cold-blooded murder. He would befriend fellow passengers on long-haul flights, share a taxi and check into the same hotel at the destination. He then bludgeoned his travel acquaintances to death before expertly dismembering their bodies and disposing of the body parts.
