I chose to pick a fictional character that played in a couple of films and now has a TV series. This particular boy suffered severe emotional abuse as a child at the hands of his mother who preached to him that sexual intercourse is sinful and that all women except her are whores. The boy’s father died which left the boy and his mother living alone together until adolescence, when his mother took on a boyfriend. This boy became incredibly jealous and murdered both him and his mother with strychnine. After committing these murders this boy forged a suicide note to make it look as though his mother had killed her lover and then herself.

Teens may feel pressured by their friends to try drugs, they may have easy access to drugs, they may use drugs to rebel against their family or society, or they may take an illegal drug because they are curious about it or the pleasure that it gives them.

She was surrounded by many challenges when she enrolled in the alternative behavioral school.

"I just wondered how it would feel to shoot Grandma" (Leyton: 1995, 46).

After killing the girls he made an attempt to ensure that the girls were of the upper class, this was a very important point with him (Leyton: 1995, 66). "I didn't want to kill all the coeds in the world", this quote may give some insight into who Kemper is now as he sits in an institution and is said to be a 'happy' man, he has challenged all the problems in his life that bothered him and now after the issues have been resolved he appears to be content (Leyton: 1995, 77).
Wolson never denied that Kim shot her husband, however, he did not agree with the first-degree murder conviction. He believed Kim acted in self-defense to protect her children as well as her life as she felt they were in danger. John was very abusive towards Kim, he had even sent her too Winnipeg one weekend and he told her “to do it” which meant kill herself by getting into a car accident so that he could receive her life insurance.

But unfortunately for Macbeth, they did not tell him Macduff was not born from a woman but yet he was taken out of the womb from an emergency c section, which allows him to complete the murder of Macbeth.

Mr. Ewell appeared in many places throughout the book, and it was his daughter, Mayella Ewell, who pressed false charges against Tom Robinson for the offense of rape and battery. Almost every time Ewell was mentioned, he was portrayed as either violent or totally inebriated.

In his interviews with serial killers, he found out that most were abused by one of their parents, mostly by their mother. In one of his first interviews, the man’s mother was friendly towards everyone outside of her home, “yet at home, she treated her timid son as if he were dirt” (Douglas, John E.). The abuse would have further led to development as every killer’s brain examined by Jim Fallon, a neuroscientist, “had damage to their orbital cortex. How you end up with a psychopath and a killer depends on when the damage is done” (Fallon, Jim). Another factor that influences the development of a serial killer is that most killers have too much serotonin.
