8 Disturbing Quotes About Serial Killers;

Many people in the psychiatry sector have come up with one definite notion which is “not all psychopaths are serial killers, but all serial killers are psychopaths.” We often make one common mistake thinking all serial killers are born with genius minds gifted with exceptional IQs. But that’s a complete misconception on our part. It is only true that serial killers are psychopaths with deadly intentions and to be more precise, psychopaths are not sociopaths. A sociopath can be anyone who shows anti-social behavior which is a result of environmental factors. But in the case of psychopaths, the condition is intrinsic and not acquired. 

Where do serial killing instincts come from? Is torturing animals at a young age make a person a serial killer when he grows up? Is it necessary that childhood trauma can make a person a serial killer? How do they become serial killers? Many modern works of fiction, movies, and books come up with some insight regarding this matter. If you read the book “We Need to Talk about Kevin” by Lionel Shriver, you’ll see a mother trying to understand the mind of her teenage son who guns down children at his school. The novels ‘Red Dragon’ and ‘The Silences of the Lambs’ by Thomas Harris mention the Hannibal Trilogy where the author mentions a forensic psychiatrist and a cannibalistic serial killer. The serial killer is described to be born with high intelligence but one without any conscience and moral boundaries. 

There’s no definite answer to the question of the serial killers is made or born that way. However, some experts suggest that most psychopathic killers have an ‘overwhelming desire’ to kill, and experiencing violence in childhood increases the scale greatly. 

In the following article, we will go through some deadly serial killer quotes from some of history’s most manipulative serial killers.

H.H. Holmes killed at least 27 people. But other estimates suggest he easily murdered hundreds. He used traps to kill his victims.

6. Jeffrey Dahmer serial killer quotes;

“The killing was a means to an end. That was the least satisfactory part. I didn’t enjoy doing that. That’s why I tried to create living zombies with uric acid in the drill (to the head), but it never worked. No, the killing was not the objective. I just wanted to have the person under my complete control, not having to consider their wishes, being able to keep them there as long as I wanted.”

“I separated the joints, the arm joints, the leg joints, and had to do two boilings. I think I used four boxes of Soilex for each one, put in the upper portion of the body, and boiled that for about two hours and then the lower portion for another two hours. The Soilex removes all the flesh, turns it into a jelly like-like substance and it just rinses off. Then I laid the clean bones in a light bleach solution, left them there for a day and spread them out on either newspaper or cloth, and let them dry for about a week in the bedroom.”

Jeffrey Dahmer died in prison in 1994. He was killed by a prison mate. He went to prison after being convicted of murdering 17 males between 1978 and 1991. He finally stopped his crimes after getting arrested on 22 July 1991, the same day the police saw a man in handcuffs walking down the street.

Albert Fish grew up in an orphanage and worked as a prostitute. He sexually assaulted young boys by the time he was 20 years old.

8. Edmund Kemper, ‘The Co-ed Killer’ serial killer quotes;

“One side of me says, I’d like to talk to her, date her. The other side of me says I wonder what her head would look like on a stick?”

“I remember there was a sexual thrill… you hear that little pop and pull their heads off and hold their heads up by the hair. Whipping their heads off, their body sitting there. That’d get me off.”
