I have an interest in true crime, serial killers, cult killings and mass murders in particular.
This is not based in admiration, a want to ‘cure’ / save, or even in some want to get to really know them.
It is based in a fear. The same fear I have of tornadoes. They are random, vicious, and possibly more of a threat than we admit on a daily basis. Serial killers are the monsters under my bed.
As a young girl I had a severe fear of spiders. I started to read about them and that fear lessened quite a bit. I had hoped to be able to do that with serial killers but since I could never really understand them the fear never went away. As a matter of fact the more that I earned the more I realized that serial killers could hide better than spiders, you never knew until it was too late that you were in a web.
I know the chances of running into a serial killer is low, less than the chance of getting hit by lightning. If you do happen to cross one’s path though and you are his type your chance of survival is probably the same or less than that lighting strike.
This blog is being attempted to go along with a web site also called Real Life Monsters.
I do not claim to be an expert.
