    Absolute nonsense.

    Once a serial killer starts, they DO NOT stop unless caught or killed.

    Not sure this is true. BTK, Green River Killer. Some say serial killing is like sex to these fucks, and after awhile they burn out or lose the drive. Most get caught, so it's hard to be sure.

    Not true. Any serial killer that stops without explanation most likely died or was arrested for something else.

    BTK last killed in 1991, but not arrested until 2005. Green River Killer remarried, then there were 11 years without killing before he was arrested for picking up a hooker (who knows what he planned to do with her, of course).

    :dontknow:


    All one can do is to cite examples of those who seem to have stopped. There's no other good way to study this, I don't think.

    Lacking somewhat in the social graces, I concur.

    Apparently his reach is further than we all thought.

    Very interesting! Do you know if he says anything about this issue? Theories of mind are one thing, and data another. I guess you could also see if any guys (safe to say) in their 60's or later are still killing, as well as ones who are caught long after they apparently stopped.

    Zodiac Killer replaced killing with video games. He was addicted to pong

    It's been a long time since I read the stuff, but the issue is discussed, more than once. And I don't remember well enough to try and cite examples, but his work is all based on empirical data, most of it first hand....no voodoo or wild theorizing. He's the real deal, but the character Jack Crawford, in Silence Of The Lambs, was based on him. Remarkable stuff, if you have a penchant for that sort of thing.
