Top 5 Wrongly Motivated Serial Killers


A child’s mind is like a loose mortar that can be transformed into any shape but stands as the most essential ingredient for the strongest foundation of a being. Whatever a man becomes in his life is not only determined by his education, but also how he has grown up as an individual. Home, neighborhood, school and workplace, a person learns from his surroundings lot more than what is spoon-fed by the learned people.
Love, care, praise, rewards have indeed boosted the morale, but there are those who have faced rejection, criticism, seclusion, trauma and various mental upheavals, that have left a deep impact on lives changing their insights. So much so that as they grow, they craft a new world around them, that has a story, its own characters, villains, heroes, a defined goal and actions, all mastered and implemented by one mind. However these people with more of a villainous motive, become a great threat to the society. The world calls them serial killers who hunt down innocent lives merely because of their wrong perception of the world and the people living around.
So lets us take a look at some the very famous serial killers who kept FBI on its toes for days, months and even years and learn what motivated these unkind actions in their life.

Herbert Williams Mullin

Son of a World War II veteran, Mullin was brought up listening to the heroic deeds of his father who also taught him to use a gun at a very young age. His life took an unexpected turn when one of his best friends died in a car accident soon after Mullin graduated from high school. He often moved in and out of various mental hospitals and finally moved to his parent’s house when he was 25. But the worse was still imminent. Mullin began to hear voices and have intuitions that guided him that an earthquake would soon devastate San Francisco and it was only sacrificing lives that could stop the disaster. According to him the carnage in Vietnam war had so far prevented the calamity but with things now soothing down, it was his time he continued to take lives to keep the earthquake away. Mullin then began his murder spree that claimed 13 lives in one year, ranging from an old man to young girls, teenage boys and others. He also killed a priest who he in his delusionary state, presumed to have offered himself as a sacrifice for Mullin’s motives. Mullin is currently facing a life time imprisonment. Image Source

David Berkowitz – Son of Sam

David Berkowitz became very famous because of his letters to the media and police that cited the reason behind his actions, taunting them with details of his offense. He said that it was because he wanted to keep the demons quite, he had committed the crimes. Berkowitz perceived the dogs as demons and believed that when they howled, they asked him to kill women. He was very convinced that his house owners, Jack and his wife, were part of the demon conspiracy and Jack was the commander in chief of all the dogs. Even after shifting to another place, he continued to be haunted by the same opinion with six people losing their lives at his hands and many others left wounded. Berkowitz received a 365 year prison sentence, and accepted that his actions were motivated partly because of his hatred for his mother for leaving him and partly his failure with women.

Ted Kaczynski

Infamously known as the Unabomber amongst the regulators, Kaczynski was an American mathematician and a social critic. Stupendosuly bright student, he went to Harvard University at the age of 16 and became an assistant professor at the University of California, Berkeley at age 25. However two years later, the things changed drastically. He went into a secluded house with no running water and electricity learning the ways of living a self sufficient life. Perturbed by the growing technological and infrastructural development around, Kaczynski started a mail-bombing campaign that he ran from1978 to 1995 that took away the lives of 3 people leaving 23 injured. It was only after his brother David recognized his writing in a manifesto that he asked Times or The Washington Post to publish claiming to stop his terrorist activities thereafter, that he was caught by the FBI.

Carl Eugene Watts

The child of an army personnel and a kindergarten art teacher, Watts right from his childhood fantasized about torturing and killing girls and young women. Being very dull in studies, Watt had only reached the third grade level by age of 16 and was bullied by fellow students. It was during this age that he was arrested for sexually assaulting 26-year-old Joan Gave. Soon after in his 20s, he began his serial killing targeting women between 14 and 44 years of age, by abducting them and then taking away their lives after continuous torture. He admitted to have committed the crime because he saw evil in women’s eyes. The FBI failed to locate Watts for eight years as he always hunt his prey at different cities. It was only in 1982 when he was identified and convicted for claiming 12 lives in Texas. He was later held as a suspect in 90 unsolved murders.  Image Source

His victims (17 men and boys) usually went through a lot of tormenting, raping, dismemberment and similar nasty experiences finally losing their lives at the hands of Dahmer. He also practiced necrophilia and cannibalism and wanting to create “zombies” of his victims, stored their heads, hands and other parts in the basement of his home.

Comments

  1. Actually FBI analysts learned by talking to Berkowitz that the whole “my dog is demonically possessed and tells me to kill” was just a lie that he fed to the media for laughs. He bragged to the Feds that he could make the courts/media believe anything.

    Simply put, he was evil, not insane.

  2. Kaczynski – “It was only after his brother David recognized his writing in a manifesto”.

    Actually, his brothers wife recognized his writing and told the brother, who turned him in. David Kaczynski had no interest in the story until she mentioned it might be Ted.
