Thanks for the replies detective mystery and others and your comments on my post.

Its  hard to say what makes these people the way they are. In the literature i've read on serial and mass killers an abusive childhood or head injuries seem to play a role. I think joel norris wrote a book on the subject. Though i know that the vast majority of victims of child abuse don't turn out bad, nor people with head injuries.

Ted bundy had a loving upbringing, apart from finding out that he was illegitimate as a child and that who he thought was his sister was actually his mother. As antilles says, bundy blamed porn at the end but i too am sceptical of this.The yorkshire ripper here in the UK had a perfectly normal childhood (and i don't believe he was or is insane when he committed his crimes, as is claimed) I think a huge numbers of factors are involved.

Its a fascinating subject but we'll probably never know, humans are infinitely complex.

Thanks for bringing up brain trauma. That indeed plays a role in some cases. It seems quite similar to organic disorders and structural abnormalities in that it contributes to aberrant behavior. There's no doubt that such things sometimes are contributing factors.

There is one reality with billions of versions.
