Harvey Louis Carignan (born May 18, 1927) is an American serial killer serving a 400-year sentence at the Minnesota Correctional Facility – Faribault for the murders of two women. He had been previously convicted for a 1949 rape and murder he committed while stationed in the U.S. Army, in Anchorage, Alaska. Although he was sentenced to hang, he was ultimately paroled for that crime in 1960.
