No Appparent Motive.

A serial killer is the most mysterious and devious of criminals because he has no apparent motive for committing his crimes.

With an inner urge to assault, sexually abuse, and kill, nurtured by endless fantasizing.

A few serial rapists and killers have video- recorded their crimes; the videos show them to be exquisitely aroused by their victs cries of pain, and callous to their pleas for mercy. To normal human being, the tormentors appear to be monsters in human guise.

Serial killers fantasy

When the serial killer murders his first victim, he activates what is known as cyclical mechanism, entering a circular complex mental process, like an addiction, which leads him to kill again.

Thought Patterns and Actions.

Distorted thinking phase: The subject is unable to properly assess the impact of a deviant act, as he fails to consider the consequences and is more interested in the emotional gratification that can result from his actions.

Motivational phase: The stimulus is perceived as something personal and the distorted mentality of the subject produces a disproportionate response to incidents.

Inner negative answer phase: at this point the murderer has to deal with feelings of inadequacy, especially when there are negative messages from the society that surrounds him.

More Thought Patterns

External negative response phase: this element helps the subject to confirm his superiority as a person. There is no kind of interest in the possible consequences of his criminal actions.

Restoration process: This phase restores the balance that the subject had at the beginning of the process. The killer also thinks about how to minimize personal risks in upcoming murders.

The subject, therefore, completes the cycle and returns to the distorted thinking phase.

Childhood (which makes them serial killer).
