Their psychiatrists said they had bad childhoods. Find out what really made Americas worst murderers kill.Once I started, I just couldnt stop.With those words, twenty-one-year-old Ronald DeFeo confessed that he had calmly murdered his parents and four young brothers and sisters. What drove him to do it? This shocking, fascinating work pinpoints the causes and reveals the incredible inner workings of some of the most notorious slayers of all time, including:Richard Speck: He had a history of head injuries. After he murdered eight women in Chicago he couldnt remember a thing about it.Charles Whitman: Before the former Marine and Eagle Scout shot twelve people from a tower in Texas he stabbed his wife and mother to death. Later it was discovered he had a tumor in his brain.Jack Graham: He killed forty-four people for one very clear reason: to get revenge on his mother.Dan White: Was it personal pressure, an identity conflict, or too much junk food that made him kill the Mayor of San Francisco in cold blood?Jeannace Freeman: Her childhood of abuse and rape forced her to dominate everyone she met - and to kill two children because they were in the way.
