My post is referring to psychopaths, not serial killers or sex offenders. BTW, one does not have to be abused to become a psychopath. And no, I don't believe that any person comes into this world with the propensity to kill.

Hmm well we will never know...in my experience some people are just evil....Ted Bundy comes to mind...he certainly had mental issues but he also seemed to have a "normal" childhood.. Dahmer also had a normal childhood, nothing out of the ordinary.

We will never know..that is the crappy part-people have spent decades studying serial killers and really can predict some behaviors but there's always one or two that doesn't follow the trend so to speak.
