    Do most serial killers have a messed up

    childhood? Like abusive relationship with parents, broken families and missing parents. How do all these factors affect them psychologically as children?

    Jeffrey Dahmer, Albert Fish,

    Delphine LaLaurie and Elizabeth Báthory have to be my most favourite serial killers to study.

    From Bundy to Mason to Jack the Ripper (and

    even fictional serial killers), I find them absolutely fascinating. No I'm not crazy; yes i get it. They went around and murdered people; well people die everyday, it's kind of inevitable...anyways What I find fascinating is the question of What went on in their lives, in...

    They are extremely Fascinating. I find reading about Serial Killers, and different other Psychopaths to be a very intoxicating read. Some find it strange and or weird to read about them. When it's not strange at all, it's not even weird. I always find it so odd when someone says...

    I Find Serial Killers Fascinating

    I have read nearly every article on crimelibrary.com. I guess I just have a lot of morbid curiosity concerning the subject. On the other hand, maybe it runs deeper, because I am also studying to be an embalmer. Yes, I am an odd cookie. :)

    There's an old saying,

    "You can't fight what you can't see." Although this is all good and true, it leads me to question something. What can't you see? You can see psychos, serial killers, and other "evils" of the world. Have you ever stopped to think, "Why do they kill?" The truth is, that these poor...

    I am a psych major and I love doing research on

    serial killers. Looking into their past and figuring out why they did what they did. It's fascinating, especially when most of them are very smart - it blows my mind.

    Who else thinks that Jeffrey Dahmer might be

    the most misunderstood serial killer? He wasn't a psychopath because he showed true remorse for his crimes.

    Famous people who are probably serial killers:

    Corey Taylor of Slipknot. Scarlet was his girlfriend, but she isn't now. He is sadistic and fantasizes about stalking, raping, and killing in every album since Iowa. Rob Zombie, the whole band. This needs no explanation. You know they've gotten away with it-- all that money...

    Currently reading a book called "Why Kids Kill"

    and it's about children who have gone on school shootings. The author discusses their past history, and theorizes on what made them go on a shooting rampage. Really interesting book for those curious about what makes serial killers serial killers.
