The Doctors discuss the gruesome world of serial killers, including Samuel Little, who killed 93 people and who the FBI calls the most prolific serial killer in American history. Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho explains how many serial killers share common traits and experiences and she discusses what it is like inside the mind of someone who kills.
She says often serials killers appear very normal and even charming. Dr. Judy, who has worked and interviewed accused and convicted killers, says some commonalities they share is how they all seem so nice and she says it is easy to question if they have committed these gruesome crimes. She also notes many of them love to tell stories and have a narcissist side.
She also explains many killers, like Dahmer, Gacy, Bundy and Ramirez, also had a history of childhood abuse, maltreatment, and abandonment issues. She notes that many people suffer from childhood abuse and do not become killers, adding, "The genetics load the gun, and the environment pulls the trigger.”
Dr. Judy also explains the part of the brain that deals with rage and impulse control, the orbital frontal cortex, is shown to have lower activity levels in killers. She also says many share a history of abusing animals.
She says if parents are able to provide warmth, love and education that child who might have these tendencies can be re-educated and become productive members of society.
