Abstract/Description:
Ashley Torres examines the flaws of examining homosexual serial killers in only scientific terms, and discusses how the individuals could have been stopped earlier using cultural knowledge, a historical perspective, and common policing knowledge about victim selection. She takes three known paraphilias - cannibalism, necrophilia, and sadomasochism - and looks at their historical significance in regards to Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, Aileen Wuornos, and Wayne Williams.
