Forensic Killer Essay
I am thinking about becoming a forensic psychologist so this is right up my alley. Now I have put a lot of thought into which killer I am going to choose and I decided to pick john Wayne gacy.
He was one of the most psychotic killers of his time and probably the scariest. John was born on
March 17, 1942 in Chicago, Illinois. He was of Danish and polish decent; he was the only boy out of three children. His parents’ names were Marion Elaine Robinson and john Stanley gacy, as a child he was overweight and as called ‘’ lazy’’ on many occasions and wanted …show more content…
An early childhood memory gacy had was accidentally messing up tools that his father had organized and being beaten with a leather belt for it, another disrupting incident was when his father struck him in the face with the handle of a broom and knocked him unconscious.

I can imagine he was probably feeling alone then he gets molested by a family friend and doesn’t tell his father out of fear but now he watches his sisters get the attention he wasn’t, the attention he craves , the attention he worked his whole childhood to get and then whenever he gets older after he makes something of his self and decides he doesn’t need his father’s approval he can make on his own and he has two kids and a wife and a job and stuff starts working out his father just shows up and says ‘’ I guess I was wrong about you.’’ Then he probably feels like his father only loves him when he has money and his father never approved of him and now he is finally over his whole childhood his father shows up and says one sentence and it most likely all came back every beating every night of
sitting in his room listening to his mother’s cries and watching his sisters get the attention
