Serial killers commit heinous crimes because of a couple things: the person either has a personality disorder, or because of decreased connectivity within that person’s brain. (3: SV: SV.) There really isn’t a set definition for the term “serial killer.” “The term ‘serial killings’ means a series of three or more killings, not less than one of which was committed within the Untied States, having common characteristics such as to suggest the reasonable possibility that the crimes were committed by the same actor or actors.” (as quoted by Robert J. Morton and Mark A. Hilts 5) At first, some psychologists thought it was a series of two to ten murders, each with a cooling off period in between; this cooling off period is used to recover both the emotional and physical mindsets of the killer; his period of time is also used to determine between mass murder and serial murder. (1c: SV; SV; SV.) This has been the method for determining the definition of “serial killer.” The early signs of a serial killer can be caught at a young age.

Ted Bundy 2 Ted Bundy: A Personality Comparison With The Theories Of Rollo May and Albert Bandura The objective of this case study is to examine the personality of one of the most notorious serial killers in modern history, Ted Bundy. Ted Bundy was alleged to have humiliated, tortured and murdered at least 50 women. Possibility more, but the true number will never be known. Because Ted Bundy kept the true number of his victims to himself and refused to inform authorities of the exact number of his horrific deeds, before he was executed on January 24, 1989 (Wikipedia, n.d.). Ted Bundy was once a Boy Scout and those who knew him in the labor force said that he had a promising career in politics, because Ted Bundy appeared to be an example of a good, upstanding citizen (L. Corpus, 1989).

There have been many killers out there but the Zodiac is one of a kind. He killed tons of people, he would send letters and threats to kill dozens to the police and local news stations, even though the crime was unsolved there are many suspects. The zodiac claimed to have started killing in 1966 by the murder of Cheri Jo Bates and only one month later someone mailed 3 nearly identical handwritten letters which said “The Confession” which started out by saying “She had to die” and was signed with a letter “Z”at the bottom of the paper (Butterfield). One year later two teenagers, Betty Jenson and David Faraday, were parked on the side of the road were later found dead outside of their car which had been shot. The the boy had been alive, but he died on the way to the hospital.
