Vampires don`t always kill their victims [at least these modern ones] so I decided to add a couple of vampiric attackers to the crime list. They are not as “impressive” as the serial killers, however they should be mentioned because they acted in more recent times and the phenomenon seams to be repeating more frequently and all over the world.
Needless to say we will be dealing with people that bit around the neck or other blood arteries. Some of those that are to be listed even claimed to their victims that they are vampires.
1. Stephanie Pistey [18 when she was accused]
While being accused of the murder of a 16 year old boy, Stephanie gave an interview to a local newspaper in July 2011 and claimed that she was a vampire and that she had drank the blood of her 25 year old fiancé. She declared: “Since I was like, 12…I know this is going to be crazy, but I believe that I’m a vampire. Part of a vampire and part of a werewolf.”
2. Emi Coleman [30 when committed the crime]
On November 17, 2011 young Emi decided to go looking for some snacks at a local store. But for her, the snacks weren`t your average chips and chocolates. The camera at the store reveals that she took a nice juicy bite out of 2 of the customers neck areas and then drove off in a black car.
She was caught after a media appeal in the Denver area.
3. Mauricio Lopez
In August, 2010, Mauricio Mendez Lopez allegedly killed his brother-in-law Macario Cruz, with whom his niece was having an affair. Lopez stabbed Cruz in the heart and liver, then drank his blood out of a plastic cup as his niece and her four children watched.
Lopez claimed that according to Mexican folklore, drinking a victim’s blood helps the killer evade arrest.
4. Evan Francis Brown
Evan Francis Brown  told Alabama police that he is a vampire and a Satanist after being arrested for burning a “V” into the forehead of a 17 year old boy in December 2010.
Police say Brown tied up the victim, beat him and burned him with cigarettes, then used a hot fork or spoon to brand his face.
5. Jeffrey “Draven” Mitchell
In 2008, a man who told U.S. Marshals he is a 225-year-old vampire was arrested in Virginia Beach on charges of sexually assaulting a 4 year old in Jacksonville [Florida], as well as two other young girls.
Police say Jeffrey Mitchell  who called himself “Draven”, always wore black clothes and capes, and placed caps over his teeth to make them look like vampire fangs.
6. Matthew Lovrine
He was charged with multiple sex crimes, including two counts of sexual assault, in December, 2010, after one of his victims told her mother about a sexual relationship they had started when she was 15.
The girl reported that she began dating Lovrine [then 17] in 2009, while he was already dating a 17 year old girl. The three became involved in a polygamist relationship.
Lovrine allegedly told the girls that he is a vampire and will cut them and drink their blood. Hehad punched them and cut them with a knife on several occasions.
Police say Lovrine also bragged about cutting his victims with razor blades and drinking their blood before his arrest.
7. Lyle Monroe Bensley
On August 13, 2011, 19-year-old Lyle Monroe Bensley forced his way into a woman’s apartment and began to hit and bite her while making growling sounds.
The victim managed to escape and get into a neighbor’s car.
After a short pursuit, cops arrested Bensley, who reportedly told them, “I’m a vampire, and I’ve been alive for over 500 years,” and that he just “needed to feed.”
His lawyer later claimed that he was high.
