Yesterday, as I was browsing Facebook, I saw a picture stating that “The average person walks past a murder 36 times in their life.”

How many murderers will an average person walk past in their life?.

In reality, the truth is unlikely to be that easy, but there’s also very little data on the topic otherwise.

The average murderer only kills one person – Dr. Mike Aamodt at Radford University has compiled a dataset on the basic statistics of serial killers.

Out of 78.74 years, let’s say that the average person is ambulatory and social for 75 of them.

By calculating the distributed average, we find that (20% * 1) + (20% * 100) + (60% * 10) = 26.2 new people per day.

At 26.2 new people per day, the average American meets 717,225 people throughout their lives, of which 10.76 are likely to be unapprehended murderers. »
