A serial killer is usually someone who murders three or more people in two or more separate events over a period of time.

Terrorist and Mass Shooters are usually not counted classed as serial killers as its usually in one location at one time.

There is a difference between proven victims and possible victims. 

Proven victims are victims which have been tried in a court of law and the person was found guilty.

Suspected victims are victims where the police suspected it was the same killer but wasn’t tried in a court of law or where the serial killer claimed to have killed more.

Claims aren’t counted towards proven victims as they can make claims to make themselves more famous.
