Serial Killers - John Reginald Christie (The Rillington Place Strangler)
John Reginald Christie was a notorious English serial killer active in the 1940s and early 1950s. He murdered at least eight women, including his wife Ethel, by strangling them in his flat at 10 Rillington Place, Notting Hill, London. Christie moved out of Rillington Place in March 1953, and shortly afterwards the bodies of three of his victims were discovered hidden in an alcove in the kitchen. His wife's body was found beneath the floorboards of the front room. Christie was arrested and convicted of his wife's murder, for which he was hanged.
