When people commit heinous acts like rape and murder, are they possessed by Satan?

No. Because humans have a sin nature, we don't need Satan to motivate us to commit such heinous acts. It's in us. Most people restrain it because of enculturation, fear, or convictions about human wellbeing. But given the right trigger, almost all of us would turn into cold-blooded killers. It's in us. Since you're asking a Christian, you want to know what the Bible teaches.

Jeremiah 17.9: "The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure."

Romans 3.10: "There is no one righteous, not even one."

James 1.14: "but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed."

Satan doesn't need to possess us. We are slaves to sin and cannot escape it without the grace of God.
