What differentiates a serial-killer from a murderer? Both of them kill... but both kill for very different reasons; with murderers their actions are either a crime-of-passion, an act of aggression, or a spontaneous action in a fit of jealousy, need or greed, where-as although serial killers are also compelled to kill, they have an innate ability to blend into their surroundings, to pre-plan, to find order amidst the chaos and (sometimes) - if needed - the ability to bottle-up their volatility, where-as for the rest of their days, they can appear like just a regular person, just like one of us.
What follows is the first part of a series of interviews with some of the world's most infamous serial killers so you can get a better sense of how they were perceived by their victims and followers as either powerful, alluring and messianic, or intelligent, caring and compassionate, even when they were not, which is what makes serial killers so fascinating.
Part two of television interviews with infamous serial killers and murders will appear here soon.
