As we may all know a serial Killer is one (a murderer) who murders more than three people over a period of more than usually thirty days. That is the brief description of a serial killer everywhere in the world. These serial killers usually have a break off period between each murder. Most of the times their motivation for killing or the reason they kill is due to the fact that they derive some psychological gratification from the act of murder.
Serial killers are one of the most twisted forms of criminals the world has ever seen.
So what makes a serial killer to kill?
According to experts, sexual elements are mostly one of the motives for their committing of the act (murder). This alone isn’t the reason they kill. Other motives for these serial murders may include the following:
1. They usually feel under valued in the society – and hence they murder to gain attention from the society and general public,
2. The FBI includes amongst the motives of a serial killer – financial gain (a typical example of this one would be a professional killer or a hitman),
3. We also have killing for a thrill. Here, the killer tries their best to induce great terror in the victim. This terror and pain he induces in the victim provides him with a great sense of excitement and stimulation.
4. And one of the most common motives is anger.
Usually the victims of serial killers have something in common, which might include things like sex, a certain age range, race etc.
But of all serial killers, personally I think that lust serial killers are the most dangerous and common serial killers.
Now the most fearful thing about this one is anyone can fall a victim to such psychopathic killers. Sex is their primary motive. Their sexual gratification is primary based on the level of torture they pass their victims through.
I t must be known that serial killers are not the same as mass murderers. The latter commit mass murder at one time, and that might be it. Terrorists are a perfect example of that.
