DOCUMENT INFO
Description: The cosy domestic poisonings of Victorian and Edwardian England, the almost jaunty blood-letting with knife, gun, and blunt instrument, the tidier ligatures with rope, cord, and thin-biting wire, all these purposive acts, motivated by comprehensible, if not excusable, human passions of love and malice, greed and gain, profit and loss, jealousy and revenge, elimination or conviction, which is to say killing for an idea or an ideal, have been overshadowed. The term serial killer was coined, so the story goes, in the 1970s, by FBI agent Robert K. Ressler, for the engagingly homely reason that such multiple murderers, killing in series, brought back to him childhood memories of the cliff-hanger film serials, like Flash Gordon and The Phantom, which he watched at the Saturday kiddie matine movies at the cinema in his home-town.
