Serial Killer Myths

      Five common misconceptions regarding serial killers and the investigation of their cases:

l. All serial killers had terrible childhoods, were beaten by their parents, and sexually abused.

2. Serial killers are "mutants from Hell," who do not look or act like the average person in appearance and mannerisms.

3. Serial killers prey on anyone who crosses their path and do not spend time selecting their victims.

4. Serial killers have an uncanny ability to elude the police for long periods of time.

5. The Federal Bureau of Investigation investigates all serial murderers since most of them cross state lines. [The fear of serial killers exceeds the actual threat because there aren't that many of them out there.]

Steven A. Egger, The Killers Among Us, 1998
