What circumstances led up to her becoming a serial killer? Aileen Wuornos from what I have read so far about her is very surprising. She has dealt with growing up with her grandparents after her dad killed himself while serving his prison term and her mother had abandoned her. Wuornos’ grandmother was an alcoholic and she was sexually abused by her grandfather and had allegedly sexual relations with her brother. I feel like all these events that she has gone through as a young woman has set her up to later becoming a serial killer.
Psychosocial theories "work from the viewpoint that deviant sexual behavior is a response to external factors and that there is an interconnection between psychological and sociological variables that influence sexual behavior. Sexual behavior is a learned response to particular conditions, and deviant sexual behavior is the outcome of inappropriate socialization. This may result from personal experiences, such as childhood sexual abuse, or be influenced by general factors, such as pornography." Alcoholic and explosive caregivers raised Aileen, that behavior was later reflected in Aileen herself. At a very young age, she became pregnant after being raped by one of her grandfather's friend. During her adult life, she would turn to prostitution as a means of survival. Aileen pattern when conducting a murder involved attracting her victims by offering sex in exchange for money.

I believe that Aileen Carol Wuornos killed for several reasons and that her traumatic childhood only influenced her urges. Wuornos’ childhood was extremely tough and hard on her. Her father was incarcerated for rape and her mother abandoned her at 6 months. She was then forced to live with her abusive grandfather. While living there she claims to have been raped (not by her grandparents) and became pregnant. As a result of her young pregnancy, her grandparents kicked her out, but eventually she gave up the child and moved back into their residence. However, after more family hardships Wuornos began living on her own and began to engage in prostitution to acquire money to survive. She was also engaging in heavy drug abuse. Given all of that information I would have to say that Wuornos experienced a very traumatic upbringing and that it could have affected her immensely. That being said, she fits perfectly within the Trauma-Control Model, which makes me believe that her childhood could have absolutely motivated her to become the person she did. Also, going along with this idea, she was using drugs; therefore, drugs could have been a facilitator to her crimes.
