Serial Killers Recall Their 1st Kills
I found the following in one of the books I own called “Serial Killers: Methods and Madness of Monsters.” It’s interesting to see how they recall the events and how some even spoke in 3rd person when discussing the events.

I had no intention of killing her. I don’t know whether I was just being afraid somebody was going to catch me or what. That killing was my 1st, my worst and the hardest to get over. Everywhere I’d go I have to be watching for police and be afraid they were going to stop me and pick me up.
He was horrified by the recongnition that he’d done this, the realization that he had the capacity to do such a thing or even attempt, that’s a better word, this kind of thing.
