ARE serial killers born or made?

That is what a talk about some of most notorious murderers will explore next month.

After being postponed due to the pandemic, A Night of Serial Killers will be held at Eagle Sports and Social Club in Great Sankey on Friday, May 21.

Organiser John Lebbon said: “One thing that we know for certain is that a child’s upbringing can put them at risk of becoming a killer or as FBI profiler Jim Clemente explains: ‘Your genetics load the gun, your personality aims it and the events in your life pull the trigger’.

The event capitalises on the rising popularity of shows like Mindhunter and takes the format of an informal talk with case studies and interviews to illustrate how an innocent child can grow into a cold-blooded killer.

Founder of Crime Viral and comedian Cheish Merryweather will look at the childhoods, adolescence years and shocking crimes of the following serial killers to determine exactly what went wrong along the way.

The talk explores the lives of the likes of Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy and Jeffrey Dahmer. Tickets are on
