M.V. Simkin and V.P. Roychowdhury: We analyze the time pattern of the activity of a serial killer, who during twelve years had murdered 53 people. The plot of the cumulative number of murders as a function of time is of  "Devil’s staircase" type. The distribution of the intervals between murders (step length) follows a power law with the exponent of 1.4.
