The topic I am studying for my Exploratory Essay (EE) is about the glorification of serial killers in society. In many of the articles I read, the authors came to the conclusion that people are fascinated with murder because of the air of mystery that surrounds it. Because most of the population can never truly know what happened or what it is like to be a serial killer, we are fascinated by the myths that surround it. Humans are naturally curious about things we don’t know about, and serial killers are no exception. We have ideas about what a serial killer is and when someone is found that contradicts our mindset, we are shocked. A perfect example of this is Ted Bundy. He is a man that nobody thought capable of murdering at least 30 women. He was said to be a charming, handsome, clean-cut man and that made people want to believe he was innocent, even when the evidence became overwhelming. Bundy alleged received love notes from people from all over the country while in prison for the murders, and he got married after he had been accused and arrested for the murders. Many people around the country looked past his horrendous actions and instead focused on his looks and his charming personality.
