And it's clear that the seeds were sown in childhood. All the women were horrifically abused - usually by their family members. It's not the rape and beatings that hurt the worst. It's when a parent said things like, "You're stupid," or "Why don't you kill yourself?"
I am learning things, but some I wish I could unlearn. Some are more benign. Like male serial killers seem to come from the Pacific Northwest - right here. Female serial killers are more likely to be from the South.
And then this gave me pause: "Female multiple killers read materials to educate themselves about murder and forensic pathology. They go to their local libraries and check out books about poisons, autopsy procedures and police procedures."
