It is important to question a worldview that characterizes serial killers as wicked monsters with strange appearances, torturers of animals, or victims of physical or sexual abuse as children. As a result, killing someone sadistically for sex is justified. While seeking information about this occurrence, researchers should approach the problem with an open mind and no preconceived notions or theories. In addition, each serial killer's motivation to murder several victims may be distinct, based on their background and experiences, and hence hard to measure. The goal of the current study was to identify the conditions that led to serial killing by comparing in-depth and descriptive stories from the lives of serial killers 2 without taking presumptions and theories into consideration.3 Grounded theory methodology was applied for this objective. much of the information has been extracted from literature concerning every serial murderer4. Stress/trauma, power/control, loneliness, low self-esteem, sexually sadistic Indian culture, peer pressure, Satanism, parent relationship patterns, and neurodevelopmental issues were found to be contributing causes.
