Meet the FBI Investigator Who Coined the Term ‘Serial Killer’

You’ve probably never heard of Robert Ressier.

The FBI investigator is credited with coining the term “serial killer,” according to an NPR feature on unknown stories.

Ressier, who wrote a book on criminology, spent much of his career researching serial killers.

“There are people that are pretty good at this, and I would consider myself one of them, certainly,” Ressler said in an NPR interview in 1997.

Ressler died earlier this year.

“He went on face-to-face interviews with the most notorious and successful serial killers at that particular time,” Roy Hazelwood, who worked with Ressler at the FBI for more than 20 years, told NPR.
