5. The Manson Family (Family Of Psychopaths)
The Manson Family was a commune, gang, and cult led by Charles Manson that was active in California in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The group consisted of approximately 100 followers, who lived an unconventional lifestyle with habitual use of hallucinogenic drugs such as LSD. Most were young women from middle-class backgrounds, many of whom were radicalized by Manson’s teachings and drawn by hippie culture and communal living.
Soon after release from prison in 1967, Manson, who had been institutionalized or incarcerated for more than half of his life, began attracting acolytes in the San Francisco-area. With these, his so-called Family, he later moved to a run-down ranch in the San Fernando Valley. According to group member Susan Atkins, the members of the Family were convinced that Manson was a manifestation of Jesus Christ and believed in his prophecies concerning an imminent, apocalyptic race war.
In 1969, Family members, Tex Watson, Susan Atkins, and Patricia Krenwinkel entered the home of Hollywood actress Sharon Tate and murdered her and four others. Linda Kasabian was also present, but did not take part. Members of the Manson Family were also responsible for a number of other murders, assaults, petty crimes, and thefts.

The Gang of Amazons (Russian: Банда «амазонок», romanized: Banda “amazonok”) is a family of serial killers from Stavropol, Russia, who committed a series of murders and robberies over a span of six years. Inessa Tarverdiyeva along with her husband Roman Podkopaev, 35, and two daughters Viktoria, 25, and Anastasiya, 13, began their murder spree in 2007, but some accounts detail offenses as far back as 1998. Their spree lasted until their apprehension in 2013.
The family lived in a comfortable home in the village of Divnoye in Stavropol, the administrative seat of the Stavropol Krai. The family used camping trips to the Rostov Oblast as a cover to commit their crimes.
Arrested alongside the family were Podkopaev’s sister, Anastasiya Sinelnik, 26, and her husband Sergei, 31, a former policeman. It is suspected that the couple aided the family in the commission of their crimes by providing them inside information about police operations and officer movements. While Anastasiya would not openly admit to aiding and abetting the family in court, she would not admit to knowledge of the planning of the crimes. Her husband Sergei confessed to feeling pleased that his colleagues did not know who was committing the crimes, but that he did. The couple stored stolen goods in their home and occasionally took jewelry to a jeweler for sale or to be melt down into new jewelry.
