Maybe someone was in the state of jealousy and anger that they murdered her because they wanted what she had. Her murder was one of the stories that began the chain of crimes soon to be uncovered.

Both these girls have demonstrated deficits in their development neurologically, intellectually, emotionally, and psychosocially (Scott & Grisso, 2004). At age 12, it is evident that the prefrontal cortex is severely underdeveloped which causes impairment in the decision-making skills and regulation skills (Scott & Grisso, 2004). In fact, the prefrontal cortex is responsible to elicit appropriate responses. These girls made a decision to murder the victim because they wanted to be with ‘Slender Man’. Research has indicated that youth are deemed neurologically immature due to their unstable brains during early to mid-adolescence (Scott & Grisso, 2004).
While the validity of BPD is now generally accepted, the etiology of the disorder is still in process of being uncovered and better defined (Zanarini & Frankenburg, 1997). The first attempt belongs to three psychodynamic theories as for instance Kernberg (1975) suggested that excessively early aggression of the child has contributed to split his/her positive and negative images, which was caused by real frustrations. These made the pre-borderline child unable to understand and merge the positive/negative images to reach a more realistic and balanced view of him/her and others. Also, according to Adler and Buie (1979), the failure in early mothering has led the child to a failure in developing stable object constancy, as a result of mother’s inconsistency or insensitivity and non-empathy, which led them to develop an unstable view of them and the world, using stress as a coping mechanism. The last theory of the psychodynamic field (Mahler, 1972), refers to fear of abandonment as the central factor in borderline psychopathology.

Parental dysfunctions play a role in sex offender’s behavior problems. According to Netland and Miner , they suggested that poor parental guidance is the one of the reasons why young male sex offenders commit sex offenses. It has been discovered that alcohol abuse during pregnancy can interfere with the development of the unborn children.

For instance, a little kid has been told that sky comprises of brown color and him thing the same because of lack of color knowledge. Similarly, Parents and guardians should aware their children regarding a good and bad touch so that they will be secure from being assaulted, that is the primary reason for a high ratio of sexual abuse because parents feel weird to discuss it with their children. Disobeying an adult can sometimes result in getting into trouble with a child, and being in trouble is something children understand and fear. Children might be told that their mothers will not love them anymore or that they will be sent away because the touching is their fault. They don’t know yet that adults can tell lies, so they believe what they are told.
Dana’s history of maltreatment, both from her birth family and foster families, may have been the cause of the lengthy list of social problems that followed. Poor outcomes are associated with children who are abused, runaway, and have a drug dependency problem. Literature has shown that children who are sexually abused as children have high risk of being a victim of commercial sexual exploitation, become addicts, and becoming pregnant as adolescents. Foster parents are supposed to protect children, yet Dana was exposed to additional abuse in out of home care. She was reunified to her parents yet they were unable to protect her from becoming a CSEC victim.
• Psychodynamic Theories The Psychodynamic theory explains child abuse as a “parental dysfunction.” Followers of this theory such as B.F. Steele (1987) stated that ‘the abusive parents submit their children to traumatic experiences similar to those they had endured during childhood.” Therefore, child abuse is explained as a cycle due to the parent having experienced such behaviours from their parents as a child, hence now displays similar behaviours to their child as a parent. • The Sociological Theories There has been much agreement with Steele’s approach, however, it has been criticized to the extent that abuse against children is not necessarily only due to the parents’ experiences as a child but the abuse of children can also be as a
Diane Downs, on the other hand, was a notorious sociopath who displayed sociopathic behaviors such as: she was socially awkward and would do anything she had to get what she wants no matter what it would cost her (Peterson, 2000). Psychopaths The psychopathic population have antisocial personality disorder (ASPD).

Some or most signs of ASPD are usually seen in early childhood, however, the cannot be properly diagnosed until the late teenage or early adult years (Grohol, 1995).

If this issue continues, he/she has a right to report the incident or fight back their bullies. All forms of bullying, including cyber-bullying, are considered intolerable and criminal at school.
On October 1, 2003, Dawna Cantrell was arrested and charged with the murder of her husband and two counts of tampering with evidence. Ms. Cantrell’s competency was questioned after evaluation by the defense expert, Dr. Eric Westfried. After subsequent evaluation by the state’s expert, Dr. Edward Siegel, both experts found that Ms. Cantrell had a “persecutory delusional disorder” and that her mental illness precluded her from assisting her attorney in her defense. The trial court found her incompetent to stand trial and ordered a dangerousness evaluation. Dr. Siegel conducted another evaluation, after Ms. Cantrell had been treated with antidepressant medication, and opined that she was not dangerous and could probably assist her attorney during
