Because Perry feels repugnance for his actions, his morality reveals itself and shows his true character. Before Dick and Perry commit the murder, they have no pervious relation with the Clutter family. Truman pens, “The crime was a psychological accident, virtually an impersonal act; the victims might as well have been killed by lightning” (245).
