Sometimes they are victims of tragic, abusive childhoods; sometimes they are mentally ill; sometimes they might simply be evil. Whatever the potential reasons behind the callous acts of child murderers, though, their crimes shock people to the core. And few crimes are as disturbing as those committed by the following 20 young killers…

20. Mary Bell

Mary Bell made millions of Britons debate the existence of evil. Indeed, in 1968 the 11-year-old Bell strangled two boys, aged three and four, to death in Newcastle, England. The younger boy was further mutilated, with the letter “M” being razored into his stomach. For her crimes, Bell – who was the daughter of a prostitute – was sentenced to life but served just 12 years. After her release, then, she was given a new identity – although both she and her daughter were tracked down and exposed by the press in 1998.
