It is hard for us to imagine a life feeling no remorse, shame, guilt or having any feelings for hurt we have caused.
I watched a documentary on this very subject a while back and the one thing that kept coming up in the police interviews was that serial killers have no conscience because they could not carry out their terrible crimes if they did.
There was an exception were a pead'file murder happened many years ago and the man said he felt relieved it had finally come out in the open but he was not a serial killer, he was a pead who tried to have a go with a young lad and it went horribly wrong and the bloke panicked, killed him to cover his tracks, it was only through new forensics that they caught him many years later and the bloke said he had carried it all those years and was glad it was out so he obviously did have a conscience or some sort of empathy to what he had done.
Is it possible that serial killers have different brain activity.
The one thing I do know is that killers who lie and hide behind a veil know they are doing wrong and know they face life imprisonment so what drives a person to do such a thing. Usually the signs are there from a young age.
The thing that is most important is does the serial killer know right from wrong.
Fortunately for the human population there is a very small minority who kill but when it happens it is terrible. I know there are many missing people and one can only assume that some of those people have been killed. It will always happen, there will be terrible crimes forever more, you never know when the next serial killer will be born but they are.
