Serial murderers on killing:

“You feel the last bit of breath leaving their body. You’re looking into their eyes. A person in that situation is God!”

-Ted Bundy

"What I did was not for sexual pleasure. Rather it brought me some peace of mind."

-Andrei Chikatilo

"I still have guilt. I will probably never get rid of that, but yes, I’m free of the compulsion and the driving need to do it… I don’t think I’m capable of creating anything. I think the only thing I’m capable of is destroying … I’m sick and tired of being destructive."
-Jeffrey Dahmer

"It wasn’t as dark and scary as it sounds. I had a lot of fun…killing somebody’s a fun experience."

-Albert DeSalvo

“I had a compulsion to do it.”

-Ed Gein

"I was born with the devil in me. I could not help the fact that I was a murderer, no more than a poet can help the inspiration to sing…I was born with the Evil One standing as my sponsor beside the bed where I was ushered into the world, and he has been with me since."

-H.H. Holmes

"I had full intentions of killing them. I would loved to have raped them, but not having any experience at all…"

-Edmund Kemper

"By now you know what I liked most was the hunt, the challenge of what the thing was. The killing for me was secondary. I got no rise as such out of it… for the most part. But the figuring it out, the challenge — the stalking and doing it right, successfully — that excited me a lot. The greater the odds against me, the more juice I got out of it."
-Richard Kuklinski

"Killing became the same thing as having sex."

-Henry Lee Lucas


"I wish I could stop but I could not. I had no other thrill or happiness. "

-Dennis Nilsen

"I believe the only way to reform people is to kill them!"

-Carl Panzram


"This first murder, it’s like first love, it’s unforgettable."

-Alexander Pichushkin

“We’ve all got the power in our hands to kill, but most people are afraid to use it. The ones who aren’t afraid, control life itself.”

-Richard Ramirez

"My life don’t make a lot of sense….It don’t make sense that I go around the country killing people. Period. It don’t make sense doing that."

-Tommy Lynn Sells

"The women I killed were filth-bastard prostitutes who were littering the streets. I was just cleaning up the place a bit."

-Peter Sutcliffe

"I robbed them, and I killed them as cold as ice, and I would do it again, and I know I would kill another person because I’ve hated humans for a long time."

-Aileen Wuornos

dichotomization:

He was a handsome, athletic, well-spoken young man. He was unfailingly polite and popular, and appeared caring and concerned to those in his proximity. He was educated, sophistocated, and well mannered, a graduate with a university degree in psychology. He had plenty of friends of different ages and romantic relationships with women. Many other women considered him their trusted friend and confidant. And elderly woman he befriended described him as a “lovable rascal.” Another woman, a former police officer who would become America’s leading true-crime writer and who coincidentally knew him, described him as having “old-world gallantry.” He had worked as a suicide counselor at a phone-in crisis clinic and had been recently admitted into law school in Seattle. The state government hired him as a crime-control consultant and he even wrote a rape-prevention hand-book for women. He was a hardwordking volunteer for the Republican Party, an often-invited dinner guest, and a popular date, and he considered by his elders as somebody worth grooming for a possible future as state governor, perhaps even president. He was a necrophiliac who kidnapped, raped and mutilated, in that order, 30+ college-age women over a period of sixteen months. At one point he kept four of their heads in his apartment. He burned the head of another in his girlfriend’s fireplace. His name was Theodore “Ted” Bundy.
