Meet Pedro Rodrigues Filho, The Real-Life “Dexter” — Serial Killer Of Other Criminals

Pedro Rodrigues Filho isn't exactly Dexter, but he is a serial killer who killed other criminals. Which would make him one of the "nicer" serial killers.

YouTubePedro Rodrigues Filho also known as “Pedrinho Matador.”

Pedro Rodrigues Filho is one serious serial killer. He’s responsible for at least 70 murders, 10 of which he committed before he reached the age of 18.

When it comes to Pedro Rodrigues Filho though, being a good guy can actually pay off. Filho targeted victims who, for the most part, weren’t just average everyday people. Described by one analyst as the “perfect psychopath,” Filho went after other criminals and those who had wronged him.

Filho’s life started out rough from the moment he came into the world. He was born in 1954 in Minas Gerais, Brazil with an injured skull as a result of a beating his mother took from his father while she was pregnant.

Filho committed his first kill when he was just 14. The victim was his town’s vice-Mayor. The man had recently fired Filho’s father, who was working as a school guard, for allegedly stealing food from the school. So Filho shot him in front of city hall with a shotgun.

His second murder wasn’t long after. Filho went on to murder another guard who was the supposed real food thief.

He fled to the area of Mogi das Cruzes in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Once there, Filho killed a drug dealer and participated in some burglaries as well. He also fell in love. Her name was Maria Aparecida Olympia and the two lived together until she was killed by gang members.

Olympia’s death spurred Filho’s next crime spree. He tracked down several people related to her murder, torturing and killing them in his mission to find the gang member who took Olympia’s life.
