When you see a cute kid on the street playing with their little scooter, you can’t help but smile at them and imagine that they’d grow up to be successful people with a college degree and a regular job. But sometimes, things don’t turn out the way we imagine, and some of these kids grow up to become true monsters that performed acts which have been remembered as some of the most horrible incidents in history. Here are childhood pictures of 12 of the most evil people who roamed our world.
