Kenneth Erskine was born in July of 1963 in West London, England. He was abandoned by his parents at a young age and was then forced to attend special schools throughout England.

As a teenager Erskine is known to have committed many burglaries and had opened different bank accounts that he would deposit into after committing his crimes.

It is believed that Erskine began his murder series in 1986, at the age of 22. He would murder elderly people after breaking into their homes. He attacked and murdered both men and women. They were usually all sexually assaulted before and sometimes after being murdered. Erskine would typically sneak into the homes of the elderly, assault them and then strangle them to death. He made no attempt to hide any of the bodies, he would simply leave them in their homes for other people to find.

Erskine was arrested and convicted for murdering seven people. He was originally sentenced to life imprisonment, but this was later changed as he was later found to have a mental disorder. He is thought to be involved in at least four other murders, but has not been formally charged with any addition murders. He is currently being held at Broadmoor Hospital.
