The Shaping of Women Serial Killers: An Analysis of Two Cases

M Haripriya | Dr. K Balakrishnan


Abstract: Every culture regards woman as the linchpin of social structure. It?s totally outside the realm of one?s imagination that a woman can also be a perpetrator of crime rather than being a victim. But the current state of affairs prove that there has been an offshoot in the rate of violent crimes and that too especially the serial killings or homicides perpetrated by women in the society. On this premise, the paper attempts to identify and analyze the psyche of a woman serial killer. With its prime focus on tracing the psychosexual development of such women, this research paper also tries to recognize the driving forces that trigger such homicides. Also, whether or not their socio-cultural, economic or family backgrounds aid in the escalation of their murder instincts is also examined in this paper.
