Serial Killers--Nature or Nurture? HSP3M1 ISU The Homicidal Triad NURTURE NATURE Brain Injury Sociopathy Childhood Beliefs and Morals Consists of:

Persistent bed wetting beyond the age of five
Pyromania (obsession with fire)
Cruelty to animals Psychopathy Psychopaths exhibit some, or all, of these traits:
unconcern for the feelings of others
irresponsible attitude and disregard for social norms and obligations
inability to maintain relationships
easily aggravated
incapacity for guilt or learning from mistakes
readiness to blame others or rationalize their actions

Psychopathy is common in violent offenders. a study shows that 20 of 31 serial killers have a mental illness
of those 20, 64% of them have a frontal lobe abnormality ASPD Serial killers often experienced neglect or abuse during their childhoods from which they draw their violence from. The beliefs and morals of a serial killer can seriously influence their M.O. and victimology. By Maria Byrdine Serial Killers The Frontal Lobe minimum of three to four victims, with a "cooling off" period in between;
usually a stranger to the victim
reflect a need to sadistically dominate the victim;
is rarely "for profit"
victim may have "symbolic" value for the killer
often choose victims who are vulnerable In comparison to mass murderers and spree murderers... A combination of these traits can signify homicidal proneness. Examples: Richard Chase, Dennis Rader, Gary Ridgway DSPD unconcern for the feelings of others
irresponsible attitude and disregard for social norms and obligations
inability to maintain relationships
easily aggravated
incapacity for guilt or learning from mistakes
readiness to blame others or rationalize their actions & Examples: Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson, Aileen Wuornos the frontal lobe controls our conscience, emotion, social interaction and long term planning
injury or impairment of this lobe can severely effect our decision making, attitude and relationships
Example: Albert Fish Brain injury can have a significant impact on behaviour. children neglected at home are more likely to have behavioural issues at school
some serial killers feel like they must take revenge on a certain demographic that hurt them
violence is generational: parents that abuse their children instill upon them violence as a first response to a challenge
a neglected child can develop a fantasy for themself, which they may fulfill through their crimes Childhood is paramount in the development of a serial killer. NOT ALL SERIAL KILLERS EXHIBIT THESE TRAITS.

NOT ALL PEOPLE WHO EXHIBIT THESE TRAITS WILL BECOME SERIAL KILLERS. IMPORTANT! a hatred for women may cause a killer to target women, especially those of a certain appearance
religious teachings may also influence serial killers
Examples: Ed Gein In Conclusion... Are serial killers a product of a certain nature or a certain nurture? The answer? It's both.
