Jeffrey Dahmer: Trying to Understand a Killer

Jeffrey Dahmer: Trying to Understand a Killer

There are a lot of people that are interested in learning about serial killers, perhaps because they're interested in the demented psychological aspect of it, perhaps because they adore the macabre, others still are interested in the criminal aspect and trying to understand how or why killers do what they do. To be honest, I'm one of those people--my own interests lie somewhere between the educational and the macabre; I'm simply fascinated by how a child who, much like Jeffrey Dahmer, seems to go from having a typical dysfunctional family life and childhood to cannibalism and necrophilia. Trust me when I say I take no personal joy in these types of stories, so much as I want to see how these people come into existence in the first place.
