True crimes of psychopaths, in a chilling series

For the public interested in complex, bloody and often difficult to explain police cases, Cablevisión Flow This Tuesday at Discovery ID, the broadcast of “Traits of a psychopath” began, a documentary for which you have to arm yourself with courage because each case is not the result of the imaginative mind of a good screenwriter but the recreation of a real event.

This time, the channel that deals with crimes that usually originate from revenge or the thirst for money, messes with a special kind of murderer, the psychopath, with his lack of empathy and guilt, power of manipulation and infinite capacity to the lie.

The opening chapter lives up to what the researchers promise. This is a case that occurred in 2014 when a teenager murdered his mother with a hammer and the cable of a game console. It happened in a quiet community in the US state of Texas, the victim is Kimberley Hill, 50, and her murderer abused the corpse.

When they arrived at the scene of the crime, the first policemen found the house turned into a real disaster and, next to the lifeless body of the woman, a note that said “Look for me. Sorry for the mess, KD.” The initials are for Kevin Davis, 18, the victim’s son.

A few months later he would be sentenced to life imprisonment by a jury that took less than an hour to decide on the sanction and in front of which Davis only managed to smile as if he were participating in a staging. He never tried to hide what he had done or justify it.

After finishing with his mother, he got on his bike, rode aimlessly around the neighborhood for some time, and then asked a couple who lived near his house to call the police.

In one of the first interviews with the investigators, he assured that he believed he deserved 100 years in prison. And he added: “I’m not crazy. I’m healthy. I know what I did. I have no morals, a body is a body. A piece of meat.”

Prosecutor Kim González argued that in the house shared by the murderer and his victim “the scene was like something out of a movie” and that the things that the young man confessed that he did to his mother “are not something you see every day.” .

Police, juries and criminologists also agreed on the total inability of the murderer to repent or feel guilty. He always talked about the murder and the events immediately after without any emotion as if it were the most normal thing in the world.

Chapter 2 of the documentary is entitled “In the woods at midnight”, takes place in Maine, begins with the appearance of three corpses and continues with the triple murderer leading the police to the place where he has buried the fourth victim.

As the cases progress, those responsible for the shipment will try to show the common traits that characterize this type of criminal. The program is on Cablevisión and on Flow and goes on Tuesdays at 11:15 p.m. on Discovery ID
