What makes a killer?
I’m not talking about a man’s skin and bones, but rather what
shaped them—what led them down the dark and bloody path they took.
We are the same, universally, technically, but no one can deny there is a
stark difference between the righteous and the evil. The killers and the
saviors. The good and bad.
And of course, you know me. This article isn’t about crimes of
passion, because we’re all capable of angry fits of violence when pushed
to the brink.
When I say what makes a killer, what I really mean is, what makes a
serial killer. What makes someone kill multiple people in a premeditated
manner on multiple separate occasions, usually in the same gruesome
Serial killers have always been fascinating to the public eye, and I
myself would freely admit to being one of those people. The newscasts,
the court hearings—I’m obsessed just as much as the next American.
Like an addict, I can’t get enough, which I suppose is why I always
submit articles like these for the Wednesday issue of the Local Tribune.
But it doesn’t matter much, because here you are, still reading. That
means you are just as much a slave to this as I am. It’s good for you,
really, because I’m going to tell you something the psychologists won’t,
something the media would never dare to air on their news stations. It is
a truth that might rock your imaginative foundation of serial killers—
though if you’re like me, you’ll find it unsurprising.
Here is the truth most don’t want to hear: serial killers are just like
you and me. They are us, and we are them. You could not pick a serial
killer out of a lineup, couldn’t sense a serial killer stalking you on the
street. They tend to blend, which is what we, as humans, are so good at.
Avoiding the public eye, pretending not to be interesting. Serial killers
are masters of disguise, gurus of their bloody craft. It’s why some of
their sprees last decades.
Sure, some of them may have had bad childhoods. Some of them may
have been abused physically, mentally, sexually. Some of them are
outcasts, the weird one in the class you never really noticed growing up.
But I bring to you this point—not all bad childhoods shape children
into would-be serial killers, and not every quiet, weird kid in your class
turned out to be someone like Jeffrey Dahmer or Ed Gein. It is, almost
scarily, hard to point and predict who will grow up to become the next
And if you’re somehow able to, head on over to the FBI. I’m sure
they’d love to have you.
Psychologists would say there’s an imbalance in their brains, that
they’re missing a key component to human life, to human emotion—
empathy. And logically, we all agree because it makes sense. Who could
end someone else’s life—who could peel skin from bone and make
lampshades out of the dried leather? Surely not someone who feels
empathy for their victims.
