Lovefraud always says that, contrary to public perception, not all sociopaths are serial killers. But some of them are.

Police in Charlottesville, Virginia, announced the discovery of a body which could be Hannah Graham, the University of Virginia student who disappeared on Sept. 13, 2014.

Jesse Matthew was arrested on Sept. 24, 2014, and charged with abduction with intent to defile in the Graham case. Today NBC News reported that Matthew will be charged in a 2005 sexual assault case.

According to the New York Daily News, Matthew may be linked to 10 violent crimes against women, including some women who disappeared and have not been found. The Daily News story includes a map of the incidents, along with summaries.

Matthew has not had his day in court yet. But if he is, in fact, proven to be guilty in multiple murders, he would probably meet the definition of a sociopathic serial killer.

I’ve been waiting for Lovefraud to pick up on this case. I live in Virginia and following the newspaper accounts noticed that when he was arrested in Texas there was an enormous public outcry from the Charlottesville community. Dozens of testimonies from his neighbours, kids he grew up with in school, prior work associates and all of them raved at what a sweet wonderful guy he was, “always good for a laugh” one quoted. He was described as the sweetest person, the one I liked the best was “a church type of guy” and at the same time his DNA linked him to a prior unsolved murder in the same area.
That’s all I needed to understand the situation, can anyone else here relate?


I have followed the story myself, also living in Virginia. He’s a sociopath, no question about it. Underneath his pleasant exterior is a raging serial killer.
