Keith Jesperson


Jesperson is a Canadian serial killer known as the “Happy Face Killer” for the smiley face he drew on his many letters to the media and prosecutors. He had a troubled upbringing and started his career by torturing animals. He, surprisingly, married and had three children.

Jesperson wanted to be a Canadian Mountie but he got injured and could no longer follow his dream, his wife left him at around that time. He went back to being a truck driver and began murdering. He killed at least eight women by strangulation over a 5 year period. Jesperson said the figure is more like 160 in total but there’s no evidence for that.
