Characteristics[ edit ] Some commonly found characteristics of serial killers include the following: They may exhibit varying degrees of mental illness or psychopathywhich may contribute to their homicidal behavior.

German serial killer Fritz Haarmann with police detectives, November Development[ edit ] Many serial killers have faced similar problems in their childhood development. This results in the lowering of their self-esteem and helps develop their fantasy world, in which they are in control.
It was common for the serial killers to come from a family that had experienced divorce, separation, or the lack of a parent.
Furthermore, nearly half of the serial killers had experienced some type of physical or sexual abuse, and even more had experienced emotional neglect. This neglect of the child leads to the lowering of their self-esteem and helps develop a fantasy world in which they are in control.
If a child receives no support from those around him or her, then he or she is unlikely to recover from the traumatic event in a positive way. As stated by E. Maccoby, "the family has continued to be seen as a major—perhaps the major—arena for socialization".

Fantasy can lead to the first step in the process of a dissociative state, which, in the words of Stephen Giannangelo, "allows the serial killer to leave the stream of consciousness for what is, to him, a better place". The lack of empathy for their victims among young criminals is just one symptom of a problem that afflicts the whole society.
The ability for serial killers to appreciate the mental life of others is severely compromised, presumably leading to their dehumanization of others. This process may be considered an expression of the intersubjectivity associated with a cognitive deficit regarding the capability to make sharp distinctions between other people and inanimate objects.
For these individuals, objects can appear to possess animistic or humanistic power while people are perceived as objects. There are exceptions to the typical fantasy patterns of serial killers, as in the case of Dennis Raderwho was a loving family man and the leader of his church.
They often lure the victims with ploys appealing to their sense of sympathy. Others specifically target prostituteswho are likely to go voluntarily with a stranger.
