Aileen Wournos Crimes

403 Words2 Pages
I am choosing to write about Aileen Wournos, and how I believe she committed crimes because of the developmental theory. As many know, Wournos had a very difficult and strange life. Beginning with her father being incarcerated for crimes against nature (child sex crime), being abandoned by her mother at age 4, all the way to having sexual intercourse with her own brother. As one thing led to another traits started to develop, leading the way to her murder spree. Wournos was a female raised by her grandparents after her mother abandoned both her and her brother at the age of 4. She claimed to be sexually abused and beaten by her grandfather and his friends. At a very early she began to trade sexual services for cigarettes, drugs, and food.
