Description

We chose to research and study the effects of nature and nurture on serial killers. In our paper we used numerous examples of serial killers, such as Jeffrey Dahmer and John Wayne Gacy, to add credibility to our research. We researched their childhoods extensively and found ideas that prove both the nature and nurture side of the argument. We found many commonalities in the childhoods of the to-be serial killers, and we believe these commonalities to be a big factor in determining who they were. We also read numerous articles written by professionals on this subject. These articles also provided evidence to support both nature and nurture. After reading numerous sources and giving much thought to the subject, we, as a group, came to the conclusion that nurture is more significant in determining whether or not one will become a serial killer. We can use these results to inform society on how to prevent the dangers that can happen from their actions.
