Robert Christian Hansen (born on February 15, 1939) is an American serial killer. Between 1980 and 1983, Hansen murdered between 17 and 21 people near Anchorage, Alaska.

He began killing prostitutes around 1980. After paying for their services he would kidnap and rape them. He flew them out to his cabin in the Knik River Valley in his private airplane where he would then release his victim, stalk them and then kill them with a hunting knife or a .223 caliber Ruger Mini-14 rifle.

On June 13, 1983, prostitute Cindy Paulson went to the police and identified Hansen as the man who had kidnapped and raped her.Hansen denied the accusations and was not initially considered a serious suspect. Detective Glenn Flothe of the Alaska State Troopers police contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation and requested help after a body was found, and Roy Hazelwood was brought in to assist the investigation. Hazelwood theorized that the killer would be an experienced hunter with low self-esteem, have a history of being rejected by women and would feel compelled to keep "souvenirs" of his murders, such as a victim's jewelry or even body parts.In his book Mind Hunters, profiler John E. Douglas states that his unit was called in to assist.

Flothe and the police secured a warrant and searched Hansen's house on October 27, 1983, uncovering jewelry belonging to the victims, newspaper clippings about the murders and an array of firearms — including a .223-caliber Mini-14 rifle

Hansen was arrested and charged with assault, kidnapping, weapons offenses, theft and insurance fraud. When ballistics tests returned a match between bullets found at the crime scenes and Hansen's rifle, he entered into a plea bargain. He plead guilty to the four homicides the police knew about and provided details about his other victims in return for serving his sentence in a federal prison along with no publicity in the press. He showed investigators 17 gravesites in the Knik River Valley, 12 of which were unknown to the police. Eleven remains of a probable 21 victims were exhumed by the police and returned to their families. Hansen was sentenced to 461 years in prison.

Hansen was first imprisoned at a maximum security prison in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. In 1988, he was returned to Alaska and was briefly incarcerated at Lemon Creek Correctional Center in Juneau. He is currently imprisoned at Spring Creek Correctional Center in Seward.
