FEMALE SERIAL KILLER CLASSIFICATION: ANGEL OF DEATH
“An Angel of Death thinks of herself as God– she preys on those who she believes are already marked for death. Sick people in hospitals, aging relatives, and other vulnerable, weak targets typically fall victim to these women.
Angels of Death fall into a larger community of serial killers. They are normally power and control killers, although sometimes there may be a comfort, profit or other motive to their killings.
These killers can be broken down into three murderous categories:
1. Mercy killers, who believe their victims are suffering immensely
2. Sadistic killers, who use their position of power as a way of controlling and torturing helpless victims.
3. Malignant heroes, where a pattern in which the subject endangers the victim's life in some way, then proceeds to ‘save’ them. Some feign attempting resuscitation, all the while knowing their victim is already dead and beyond help.
Though motive varies, all types of Angel have a strong compulsion to kill that drives them. They tend to murder their victims where they can easily access them, crave all attention that comes afterwards, and kill all of their vulnerable prey without remorse."
