Distinguishing between serial murders, spree murders and mass murders can be difficult as some individuals fit to two or more categories. Compare and contrast the features of a serial murderer, spree murderer and mass murderer. By using web resources, give a criminal illustration of each one and describe the motivations behind the crime(s). Are the motivations similar or different across the three? Do you think psychopathy plays a role in all the murders?
Your initial post must be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with illustrations from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and correctly cite any references.
