I don't think any person, however 'depraved', can be 'evil'. But they can certainly do things which are 'evil'.
I am not sure that 'evil' as a force exists. There is some examples of horrible and cruel practices in the natural world which if done by people would be considered 'evil'.
If evil did exist, it would be shown by behaviours that are totally without mercy or empathy, but would revel in sadistic acts. Things that go on today, and have always done so.
