Ted Kaczynski. Without a doubt.

In my opinion I think Adam, but you know, I may be slightly biased. I mean, he really was incredibly damn smart though, and he shared opinions with Ted Kaczynski so I think it is not really wrong for me to say Adam, but yeah.

Should we mention the fact that Nathan Leopold had an IQ of 210? He was the most intelligent of any killer and his IQ far exceeds that of any other killer out there. Even higher that of Einstein whose IQ was that of 136.
If the criteria is of not getting caught, I would say the Zodiac. Only one of his cryptic messages were ever cracked and his intelligence must be high as he seemed to use a tactic similar to something I’ve used myself in which you use small words, and incoherent messages to severely debilitate the ability if law enforcement to match the dialect to a specific subject. Not only were they able to kill multiple people, but they bragged and taunted the media, police and public.

Definitely. Adam is simply the smartest to me, because you know, he awoke me to so many things and well, he obviously was super smart in academics, logic etc etc. but if we are to go by IQs and all that, then obviously I agree. 

I vote the Zodiac.

Einstein’s IQ was only 136? That can’t be right…

It was Edmund Kemper or H.H. Holmes. Kemper had an IQ of a real genius and never got caught, he turned himself in. Once he killed his mother he was done with his spree and urges, so he called a detective he knew very well and confessed. Kemper was a literal genius and would still be out there if he didn’t have self guilt.

IQ tests back when Leopold took one are not comparable to scores on modern IQ tests, so we don’t know for sure what his IQ was. But Leopold was an intelligent man nonetheless. As was Kemper.

I consider Ted Kaczynski one of the most intelligent, if not the most intelligent killer of our times, because had an IQ of 167. He entered Harverd at only 16. He then earned his undergraduate degree by the age of 20. He earned his PhD in mathematics at the University of Michigan, where he focused on geometric function theory. He then was hired as a professor at University of Berkeley. Their youngest professor. While he was at Harvard, Kaczynski was taught by logician Willard Van Orman Quine, and scored at the top of Quine’s class with a 98.9% final grade. Sure he was captured, but he evaded capture for decades. Forensics was far more advanced when they captured Kaczynski than when Kemper handed himself in. If he were active when Kaczynski was, he would have been captured. His fingerprints would have been on the database from when he killed his grandparents.

But he was also only 15, kids make “mistakes”. Haha

He was only 15, but if he were active around the same time as Ted, when forensics was MUCH more advanced, then his fingerprints from those two murders would be on the fingerprint database that was developed after he was arrested. Therefor when he began killing again, he would have been caught pretty quickly!

Is this even real life? Adam Lanza is smarter than Ted Kaczynski? What kind of world do you fucking live in?

Ted Kaczynski is smarter than all killers. He’s smarter than anyone I know.

additionally, i’m pretty sure kaczynski is the only one to have published a book full of philosophical ravings that are not actually ravings but spot on correct.

Agreed. And he wrote his own math formulas. And he writes sheet music.

Adam Lanza? He ranks in there with …I don’t know…Ottis Toole.

I’d mention Patrick Wayne KEarney for consideration.
