Multiple murder, especially serial murder as part of that phenomenon, has been a center of interest and discussion since past times. Its complexity and the sophistication of serial killers, their criminal minds and modus operandi, media coverage and film portraits have given an important place of it in urban culture, with even many attempts to unveil the human nature of serial killers. Researches have shown that serial killers are mostly males, have an average IQ, and differ in their preference of possible victims and methods of murder. Murder in the Republic of Macedonia is not unknown to statistical data, but still an unsolved enigma in criminological books, especially female perpetrated murders. On the other hand, serial murders until recent years were an unheard term along police hallways and were eventually seen and heard of on big TV screens. But, few cases in the last years opened the possibility of an individual analysis of serial murder and its creator. The paper gives an overview of the past researches of serial murder, its patterns, typologies and possible etiological understandings. In the second part, the paper analyses the multiple murders of a, by definition, serial killer, whose case in the public was known as the Macedonian “Raskolnikov”.
Key words: pattern, Republic of Macedonia, serial murder, typology.
