For a period of six years from 1991 to 1997 the city of Paris, France was terrorized by a vicious serial killer. The so-called “Beast of Bastille” preyed on young women, raping, torturing and stabbing to death seven victims before the French police eventually identified him from DNA left at one of the crime scenes. He was Guy Georges, a handsome young man of mixed French / American descent, with a long record of sexual offenses.
The archetypal “organized” killer, Georges would stalk his victims for days before he eventually made his move. He would then engage his victim in conversation and talk his way into her apartment. Once he was inside the victim stood no chance. She would be overpowered and tied to a bed. Then Georges would take his time, raping and torturing the unfortunate woman for hours before he eventually ended her suffering.
In custody, Georges initially denied any involvement in the murders, but changed his story in the face of overwhelming evidence. He was sentenced to life imprisonment, with no possibility of parole for at least 22 years.
