    A serial killer is defined as one who has killed three or more; Sweeney, just found guilty of two murders, is a safe bet to be classified as one. It's a case that bears watching as the body count could soar.

    How many more victims? Police fear 'Scalp Hunter' may have murdered another three women and two men
    much more, including plenty of pictures, at Daily Mail link above
    Sweeney's case is pocked by madness:

    What a monster, reads like a story from a gorey horror movie. What is he like, how did he pull all those lovely women, with a face as ugly as sin. Sorry the day they ever crossed his path. No doubt he's an accomplished serial killer, the worst Britain has seen for a long time.

    Yes, as the murders for which he was convicted were separated by a period of ten years, one can well imagine his grim total in that interval as being even higher than suspected.

    Exactly, there is no doubt that this man would have killed frequently. It seems he had a compulsion, an insatiable need for killing and dismemberment.
    I have to wonder what hold, did he have on all these women such as Mellissa. He attacks this beautiful American lady with a claw hammer and then persuades her go back and with him in Amsterdam. She knew that her life was in danger as he had already threatened to kill her and eventually did.

    But to give him his dues, he did pen an elegant obituary dedicated to his love

    No doubt Sweeney will be another name added to the list of notorious serial killers, such as Dennis Neilson and Fred West
