Criminals come in all shapes and sizes, and while their rationales for committing their crimes aren't always clear, at least to us, something in their mind justifies the deed as a means to some kind of end. So whether they choose to become involved in organized crime, mass murder, fraud, cannibalism or good ol' theft, these men (and women) have done enough bad to go down as some of the worst and most notorious criminals in the world. 

Today, we're going to give you a picture of each criminal and even tell you their names. Your job is to go digging around in that wonderful brain of yours and tell us what they're most known for. Now the reason we're saying "most known for" is because these guys usually have a long list of evil deeds in their repertoire. Those who commit multiple murders usually torture their victims, kidnap them and sometimes even eat them. And while they are all wrong, you need to choose the one they're remembered for. 

So, if you think you've got what it takes to correctly match the crime to the name and the face, take our quiz! Would your local police department be proud of you, or would they shake their heads in shame? Let's find out!
