|Status||Imprisoned for life|
|Actor||Christopher Patrick Mullen|
Matt Bergstrom was a serial killer who murdered at least six women in New York County over a five year period and possibly another woman in Houston, Texas. Arrested for an assault on a prostitute, the D.A.'s office went round after round with Bergstrom until he finally confessed to the torture-murder of one of his New York victims in exchange for a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
As described by forensic psychiatrist Dr. Emil Skoda, he constructed scenarios in his mind and acted them out. He got off on humiliating, degrading and torturing other people. The reason he didn't kill Katherine Lansing means he was taking baby steps. He would refine his MO as he went on. He was well-organized and careful. He probably studied crime-scene procedure. He planned it down to the last detail. He acted decisively. He was meticulous, organized, and in a line or work where he dealt with minutiae, and didn't have to stay in one place, travels a lot. He was white and had no prior relationship to his victims. He blended in and looked normal to others. May or may not have been married but collected sadistic pornography. He most likely kept a detailed record of his cruelties.
