SERIAL KILLER: Meet Luis Garavito, ‘The Beast’ Of Colombia Who Murdered Over 100 Children In The 1990s

From 1992 to 1999, Luis Garavito preyed upon and brutalized as many as 400 children and teenagers across Colombia, Ecuador, and Venezuela — and he’ll be up for parole soon.

There is a man named Luis Garavito inside a remote maximum security jail in Colombia.
For his own safety, Garavito lives apart from the other inmates and only consumes food and liquids that are brought to him by people he knows. He is described by his guards as calm, upbeat, and respectful. After being released from prison, he plans to begin studying to become a politician and work with mistreated children.

Given that he has personally assaulted over 300 children, Garavito is an authority on the subject.
Between the years of six and sixteen, Luis Garavito, also known as “La Bestia,” or the Beast, raped, tortured, and killed between 100 and 400 boys between the years of 1992 and 1999. He admitted to 138 victims in court, which is the official number.
Police continue to this day to make efforts to demonstrate that the actual number is closer to 400.

The Abusive Childhood Of Luis Garavito

Luis Garavito experienced a harsh upbringing before turning into an abuser himself. Garavito, the oldest of seven brothers, was born on January 25, 1957, in Génova, Quindo, Colombia. He stated that their father had physically and psychologically mistreated all of his sons.

Garavito left home when he was 16 and worked several odd jobs all around Colombia. He was employed as a store clerk and briefly engaged in the street hawking of religious symbols and prayer cards. He apparently became addicted to drinking and had a short fuse. According to police accounts, he attempted suicide once and had five years of psychiatric treatment as a result.
In the meantime, a protracted civil conflict in Colombia that started in the late 1960s raged, leaving thousands of residents homeless and forced to survive on the streets. Since many of those who were made homeless were youngsters, nobody would notice if they went missing because their parents were either long gone or dead.
When Luis Garavito committed his first murder in 1992, he would take advantage of this.
