I'm researching Jeffrey Dahmer for EPQ.

If you know an idea/concept then feel free to share. I'm aiming for an A* so I really want to impress everyone.

Why Dahmer?

What have you been looking at so far?
I don't really know why Dahmer. He's just one of the first serial killers I was aware of from a young age and somebody who I've always been intrigued by.

I've got 3,000/5,000 words so far - I don't want to say what I've been looking at because people can steal my ideas and I'd get a low grade. I just want to stretch far beyond my current level.

Pretty sure people don't care about stealing your work.

What explanations have you found already?

Bowlby - if applicable.
Dollard - Frustration-aggression hypothesis
Evolutionary ideas that support aggression/testosterone.
Attachment types
You could talk about desensitisation due to his role in the Army.
