Serial Killer Crime Wire with Elise Torres
Serial Killers, we would like to dismiss them all, as being some kind of sub specious of humanity, perhaps in order to distance ourselves in some futile attempt to feel safe, that no one in our circles could ever commit the barbaric crimes that these serial killers have.

I do a lot of shows with frightening content, from UFOs, to paranormal, to real life conspiracies, but none frighten me as much as serial killers, because 3 of the worst ever serial killers in Canada were housed not two blocks from our Kingston broadcast centre in the Canada's maximum security jail, The Kingston Penitentiary.

In the movie Seven Kevin Spacey looks to fulfill some quest of his own making based on the Bibles' seven sins, again disconnected from empathy.

But is this truly the case for all serial killers or is this just Hollywood's version of suspense.
