examines the phenomenon of serial murder through new theories and case
of some of the most destructive murderers of modern times.
|From Demons & Madmen...
serial killers are lazy, inadequate personalities who are entrenched in
self-pity and self-destructive activities. They regard women with
feelings of hostility and suspicion because they don't feel worthy of
their attention. On the other hand, their contorted self-image leads
them to believe that they are irresistible to women at the same time.
If the serial killer does marry or have a long-term relationship with a
woman, it is usually with a woman who is passive. The serial killer is
also an unfaithful spouse or lover because he continues to attempt
extra-marital relationships that are used to reinforce his belief that
he is God's gift to women. At the same time, he must ensure that his
spouse or girlfriend remains faithful to him. Otherwise his self-image
would be destroyed. If the spouse or girlfriend turns out to be
unfaithful at some stage of the relationship, the serial killer will
react violently against them. He does not murder them, though, because
of the association between them, which would violate one of the
commandments of serial murder - Thou Shalt Not Kill Anyone You Know.
