In "Serial Killers: From Jack the Ripper to Aileen Wuornos," myths about serial killers are pointed out, which include “serial killers are all dysfunctional loners” (Blake and Cooper ). This myth derives from the belief that serial killers are monsters; however, it is a myth because most serial killers actually function well through relationships.

Murder can be defined as “the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another”. How then, are others able to make us sympathize with not only murderers, but people who have committed horrendous crimes? For example, the media is constantly attempting to humanize rapists and even terrorists with phrases like “lone wolf” or “alienated and adrift.” Such phrases make some of us want to pity the criminal. This can be seen when we compare Perry Smith and Dick Hickock from Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood.
