Ok so I know there is a thread called table of mass murder influences, but how about one for serial killers? I know some of you probably dont care for serial killers and thats fine, but lemme get this started:

Richard Ramirez: From what I heard, he liked previous serial killers himself. When he was arrested, he was thrilled to be in the same holding cell as the Hillside Stranglers. He also liked Ted Bundy (supposedly) and wrote in a questionnaire that Jack The Ripper was his childhood hero

Dennis Rader: Harvey Glatman was a huge influence on him

Heriberto Seda: The Zodiac Killer, along with other serial killers

John Wayne Gacy: Dean Corll

Israel Keyes: Ted Bundy, H.H Holmes (Herman Webster Mudgett), Dennis Rader too I believe.

Peter Kurten: Jack The Ripper

Alexander Pichushkin: From what I heard, he was fascinated by Andrei Chikatilo and wanted to get more kills than him in addition to wanting to kill 64 people to fill up the spaces of a chessboard

Albert Fish: I cant remember exactly where I heard this, probably from some video on YouTube, but I believe when police searched his home, they found newspaper articles about Jack The Ripper?

This is just a theory of mine, but David Berkowitz's letters sound somewhat reminiscent of the Zodiac Killers letters, maybe he took some inspiration from him?

Ed Gein: OK I know he isnt a serial killer since he confessed to only 2 murders, but I will add him anyway. Gein liked to read true crime stories, the cases of which im not sure of.

You were pretty close on Keyes, but he actually disliked/hated Rader.

I've heard some people assert Danny Rolling was inspired by Ted Bundy, but having read Rolling's autobiography, he adamantly disputes this. It's up in the air as to whether Rolling's word should be trusted or not.

The ones he liked were the ones about Nazi war criminals (allegedly) making lampshades from human skin.
