Why are some people more prone to become serial killers, then others? What provokes them? Is it a chemical?

imbalance or a horrible childhood, inwhich they themselves were once a victim of sorts?

    There is so many factors involved. Most serial killers are sociopaths, most having horrible childhoods with repeated mental and physical abuse, sometimes sexual.

    Three things go in the recipe for creating a serial killer:

    1.) Mental Illness

    2.) Brain Damage

    3.) Trauma in Childhood

    Source(s): Lots of TV

  • Brain chemistry controls all of your actions and emotions. Impulsiveness, love, risk-taking, empathy or lack there-of all have roots in our brain's chemical make-up. Serial killers have something wrong in their brain that prevents them from functioning like a normal human being.

    The next question is, if we know that mental illness causes people to become serial killers, how can we justify killing those sick people with the death penalty? This is why the death penalty is immoral.

    Just my opinion, I think it has to do with their childhood in most cases and in a very few cases, it has to do with a chemical imbalance in the brain.
