Bluebeard! One of the first serial killers immortalized for children. I think everyone knows the story of the semi-hypnotic charmer (sociopath!) who leaves his bride with the keys to the household and an admonition to not use just ONE of the keys. Naturally the lure of the forbidden key is too strong and the young bride discovers the remains of her husband's past wives. Unable to wash the blood off her hands, she is caught out by her murderous husband will just have to read the rest.
One has to love the cautionary stories, old and new, that make up the fairy tale lexicon.
