    I just finished a book on Westley Allan Dodd. He recorded his thoughts in extensive diary entries. I am sure this conference will be interesting.

      Was Dodd ever “normal” at any point and then suffered a stroke or develop a tumor? The UT Sniper, Charles Whitman, felt an incessant need to document everything, and it appears that he didn’t really know why he killed. This behavior seems to be only linked to the brain tumor he developed. – I am really looking forward to the conference!

        He seemed to be neglected as a child. Plus, he was very anti-social and learned about sex by playing with kids smaller than he was. He kept getting caught, too, as a teenager but was never punished to the extent he should have been. His behavior kept escalating, eventually resulting in the murder of 3 young boys in a short span of time.
