Klosowski has had very agressive altercations with his past relationships. According to the Daily Chronicle, a newspaper which covers this story, claims, “Klosowski deliberately told her that he had meant to cut her head off” (“George Chapman”).

Crime, which occurred in the heart of America shocked entire nation and it is still remains as a subject of discussion in fields of psychology and sociology.

On the surface, this statement may sound like brass bravado. A quick look into Manson’s childhood however and one might be inclined to question that notion. In this report, I will explain and utilize Michael R. Gottfredson and Travis Hirschi’s “A General Theory of Crime” and Edwin Sutherland’s “Differential Association” to analyze his involvement in the 1969 killing spree. Although Manson had a very lengthy criminal history, his infamy came from his involvement in series of killings dub the Tate-LaBianca murders by the media. On August 09, 1969, Manson ordered members of his
In 1966, Truman Capote published the novel In Cold Blood that pierced the boundaries of literary genres, as he narrated the events of the 1959 Clutter family massacre in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas and the quest that took place afterwards through the perspectives both the murderers and those looking for them. As Capote bends these genre normalities, he ventures with the killers and the detectives and describes the murderers’ lives in-depth to further characterize Dick Hickock and Perry Smith--their psychological states and the possible contributing factors to their undeniable personality disorders. A mental health professional ultimately diagnoses the killers with mental illnesses rather than chronic personality disorders, an injustice still commonly made today in the psychology field, and determines them to have known right from wrong in terms of their crime. Throughout this novelistic journey, Capote explores the distinction between psychopathy and sociopathy, specifically the textbook lack of remorse and guilt, the mask antisocial individuals tend to display as their public persona via falsified charm and manipulation, and overall moral compass, or lack thereof, between the two. Furthermore, Capote dissects the psychological differences between individuals with antisocial tendencies present at birth versus those tendencies acquired through environmental factors.
Anatomy of Injustice is the story of the homicide indictment of Edward Elmore. The author, Raymond Bonner, displays a convincing argument that the state of South Carolina indicted a guiltless individual when Elmore was sentenced for capital murder and awarded a death sentence in April of 1982. All things considered, the book speaks to an alternate expansion to the accumulation of books specifying wrongful convictions in capital cases (Grisham, 2006; Junkin, 2004; Edds, 2003). Dorothy Edwards was a widow and mainstay of her community in Greenwood, South Carolina. On January 17, 1982, her body was found in the wardrobe of her room by a neighbour, Jimmy Holloway.
Section 1: Introduction Susan Glaspell’s Trifles is a play about the effect of gender differences on perceptions of duty, law, and justice. The play Trifles was a murder mystery that got investigated by the County Attorney (George Henderson), the Sheriff (Henry Peters) along with his wife (Mrs. Peters), and a neighbor farmer (Lewis Hale) with his wife (Mrs. Hale). The story took place in an isolated farm house that was miles from the rest of the community in the Midwest. The victim of this murder mystery was John Wright as he was found dead with a rope around this neck. On the other hand, his wife Mrs. Wright was the suspect of this homicide case because she was the only person that was in the house other than her deceased husband.
Growing up a Sociopath; Born a Psychopath In Cold Blood by Truman Capote is a true story of a quadruple homicide in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas that greatly impacted the community in 1959. Capote begins his novel by introducing a prominent, well respected family in the community, the Clutters. The Clutters lived average everyday lives until they were abruptly ended at the mercy of a 12 gauge shotgun. The killers were two men unknown to the Clutters, who had two completely different backgrounds and personalities. By choosing to include details about each of the killers, Capote delineates the differences between psychopaths and sociopaths and suggests that the combination of the two personality disorders creates the environment for horrific
Moral Ambiguity and History within The Assault Harry Mulisch’s The Assault is a self-proclaimed “story of an incident” (3) wherein “the rest [of the events are] a postscript” (55). The incident in question is the murder of Anton Steenwijk’s parents, and the postscript refers to the future, where Anton uncovers details relating to the incident. Despite Mulisch’s definitive distinction between events, however, the incident itself is convoluted and its details shift over the span of the work. Through the development of major and supporting characters, Mulisch brings forth a diverse range of perspectives and reconstructs the history of the incident, thereby exploring the motif of moral ambiguity within The Assault. The aforementioned perspectives are explored through the limited omniscient third person narrator, who narrates in a factual tone and provides the lens from which events are viewed.
The first person she killed was a man named Richard Mallory; he was found in a junkyard with five more men’s bodies (College). Aileen Wuornos was found out and convicted with the death sentence; even if her sanity was questioned she was executed by lethal injection in 2002. On the psychological side of the scale, both Nature and Nurture are present in this case. Aileen had a very bad upbringing being abused, and abandoned which in tow would seem as if the nurture of her past drove her over the edge to commit those murders, but on the biological side of things her dad had some sort of problems as well, her father being a child molester that it could be argued that he gave her traits of being a molester, through heredity. This being said, in this case both nature and nurture had some play in part to why Aileen Wuornos became a serial

In 1861 America’s first serial killer was born, and through him Chicago became the location of his most devious and demented creation, the “Murder Castle”. Through him and his “castle’, this killer was possibly responsible for up to 200 murders and the concept of the modern-day “haunted house” was born. His name was H.H. Holmes, and he was known as the “Beast of Chicago”, rumored to have possibly been or connected to Jack the Ripper, and remembered through the book “The Devil in the White City” (Benzkofer, 2014). Unlike traditional serial killers that have appeared since the 1980s, H.H.
