The GTA 5 Serial Killer is a particularly dark sub-plot running in the background of the main story, but if you don't know about it then you could miss it completely. Dig a little deeper though, and you'll discover that Merle Abrahams, aka the Infinity Killer, is a creepy figure who terrorised San Andreas and left a series of clues in his wake. By following these leads around Blaine County, you can learn of his grisly deeds and track down the last resting place of his victims. It may not have any bearing on the plot of GTA 5, but if you'd like to take a grim journey of discovery then here's the details of the GTA 5 Serial Killer Easter egg.
GTA 5 Serial Killer: The Notes
The Sandy Shores Buildings
1-3: “Merle Abrahams, the suspected Infinity Killer, passed away last night in Bolingbroke Penitentiary while awaiting trial for abduction and torture. Abrahams, 57, was suspected to be responsible for the Infinity Murders, a series of disappearances that happened 5 years ago. Police believed the 8 victims, who were all single young men who were killed while jogging, were all murdered by the same person and had circumstantial evidence linking Mr. Abrahams to the victims. No bodies were ever found and Abrahams never confessed, although he did admit to a weird obsession to the number 8.”
On The Rocks in the Senora Desert
4: Just west of the alien and UFO graffiti area in the Senora Desert, you can find this set of large white rocks that have the number 8 written on them along with a short and extremely creepy rhyme. It reads:
“One is done
Two was fun
Three tried to run
Four called mom
Fives not alive
Six is nix
Sevens in heaven
8 won’t wait.”
5. If you go a little bit south of the previous set of rocks, you will come across another large grouping with some more of the number 8 written on them. Here you will find another short riddle written that reads:
“They want me they can have
But they’ll never get my people
Even though I shall leave them sign enough
Where they put me”
The Bolingbroke Penitentiary
Since the newspaper article mentioned that Merle was placed in prison and that’s where he died, it makes since that he would leave his next clue there. Getting into the prison can be a little tricky for as soon as you step inside, you will have a swarm of police on you. Use a helicopter or parachute to drop in and then fight your way to find the markings.
Look to the open yard where the prisons are hanging out in the fenced area and you will find a set of walls in the middle of the courtyard. On one of the walls there, you will find a note that reads:
“Where water meets land and fire once spewed forth
There the infinite 8 shall stay
Until I return”
You can also see another marking just below the clue that is a more in-depth drawing of the one found in the burned out building. With this drawing, you can clearly see that it is a map of the area north of Paleto Bay. Merle wasn’t as smart as he thought he was.
GTA 5 Serial Killer: The Bodies
Each of the 8 bodies can be found in the small grouping of islands just north of Paleto Bay, all of which are under water and wrapped up in plastic, lying on the bottom of the ocean. You can’t interact with them in any way, but if the morbid curiosity strikes you, here is where each of the 8 bodies can be found.
