“Why Do People Murder?”
by JoAnne Myers
However, I have at times been so angry with an individual that I fantasized about beating their face to a pulp, but I calmed down and dismissed the idea. In “The Crime of the Century”, the murders happened for 2 reasons, lust and convenience.
There are many reasons a person would commit unlawful murder; lust, greed, jealousy, revenge, rage, thrill seeking, and etc. There are also many categories for murder. In my crime novels, the killer or killers justified their actions in senseless and self-absorbed ways. The outcome for all homicide victims, and their loved ones left behind, consists of a lifetime of pain, and an endless sense of loss.
Here is an explanation of the homicide categories within the stories in “Twisted Love” 12 cases of love gone bad.
The End of Autumn-This murder fits into The Obsessive category-Violence because: “if I can’t have her, nobody can.” ... or: “if she won’t have me, she won’t have anything.”
Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing-Hedonistic/Comfort (profit) Killer category-Serial killing for monetary gain became the focus of this story.
A Senseless Killing-The Just Plain Bad & Angry category-A combination of angry, hostile, jealous, resentful, and disturbed individuals, who are socially isolated, socially inadequate, and who feel worthless.
The Death of Innocence-The Over-Controlled Hostility Type category-Anger builds up like in a pressure cooker, before they explode.
Girl Not Forgotten-Approach/Explicit category-This type of killer is a planner and actively seeks victims, while taking careful steps to avoid getting caught.
The Possession-The Hurt and Resentful category-Violence occurs because they hold grudges or seek revenge.
Home Town Hero-Hedonistic/Comfort (profit) Killer category-Serial killing for monetary gain became the focus of this story.
Horrible Sin-The Hurt and Resentful category-Violence occurs because they hold grudges.
All For the Family-This couple’s greed for monetary gain and new identities turned ghoulish.
Thicker Than Water?-The Just Plain Bad & Angry category-A combination of angry, hostile, jealous, resentful, and disturbed individuals, who are socially isolated, socially inadequate, and who feel worthless.
Mail Order Murder-The Paranoid Obsessive category-Violence can lead to murder within this category because the killer becomes delusional. Distrusts his partner even when partner is innocent.
Where’s Christopher?- Chronically Aggressive category-These individuals take pleasure in inflicting pain to others, and see violence and aggressiveness as power.
