Whenever I think of people who are capable of heinous murders I always envision ugly guys. It always totally freaks me out when I see someone who is what I would consider "cute" that is some kind of freak and capable of horrific crimes. For instance, I always thought that Jeffrey Dahmer was cute (before he went to prison and got fat). If I had seen him on the street I would not have thought...."crazy, insane murderer".

Today on my local "hometown radio" local news section there was a case where a young man 18 murdered his mother and grandmother. And dang if he wasn't cute! I thought to myself. If I had been single, and I would have run into him at a bar I might have been attracted to the guy! (well, if I was 30 years younger). Here is a link so you can see for yourself that he aint' bad lookin' Hometown Daily News

It's too weird that cute guys can be homicidal killers. They should only be ugly and freaky looking.

They may not always be ugly on the outside...but obviously are very ugly on the inside!

I could have sworn I read an article online once upon a time about this subject (attractive people committing heinous crimes)...I'll have to see if I can find it.

I find the title of this thread disturbing ... Sorry. There's nothing attractive in my eyes when it comes to another humanbeing who can take the life of another- watching them beg, plead, and be filled with complete fear as this person laughs, gets enjoyment, and an adrenaline rush taking the life of another and watching them take their last breath.

It says a lot about that person.

I think that's the scary part, when you realize that good-looking people can be homicidal manics. I think a lot of us would like to think we could recognize a criminal, just by looking at them. When we realize that we can't it is very frightening. I have seen pictures of Ted Bundy, and IMO, he was a handsome guy. If I saw him on the street, I would never thought he was a serial killer.

I don't think crime discriminates- criminals can come from all walks of life and out of all types of shells- beautiful/ugly poor/rich abusive/charming

The OP needs help. If you seriously have to look at somebody's face to judge who they are as a person, then you need help. Chances are somewhere down the line, you will run into somebody who's a criminal and will aid them in their criminal activities. Possibly a corrupt C.O. or something like that. Get help while you can.

Seems to me the OP associates looks with personality, I hope you don't only think cute guys are good people and ugly ones and bad people.

That's an interesting question. While there are exceptions obviously, I still think the majority of hard-core criminals ARE ugly. I think there is some correlation between that and getting bitter, antisocial, aggressive, etc. The con men, on the other hand, are normally attractive or at least sweet talkers.
