Timothy Wayne Krajcir (born November 28, 1944) is a convicted American serial killer from West Mahanoy Township, Pennsylvania who has confessed to killing over nine women, five in Missouri and four others in Illinois and Pennsylvania. After a stint of just fourteen months in the Navy, he was dishonorably discharged in 1963 for sexual assault. Krajcir first entered the Illinois prison system in 1963 on a rape conviction. Since then, he has spent most of his adult life behind bars for sex crimes, except for a brief period of freedom in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Krajcir has been incarcerated since 1982. Krajcir would travel to various towns that he had no connection to, stalk his victims, and then break into their homes and wait for them to arrive. In 1977, Krajcir was released from prison after serving time for rape when he enrolled at Southern Illinois University Carbondale as a condition of his parole.
