The debate over nature versus nurture is a hot topic among true crime listeners. It’s the question of whether our biological makeup, or what is in our DNA makes us who we are, or whether the environment we are raised in contributes more to who we become. This is often debated when it comes to murderers. Certainly, mental, emotional and physical abuse or being subjected to evil on a regular basis as a child would make it seem normal or acceptable to a child and that may transition with some of them to adulthood, but what if a murderer is raised in a home where none of these bad things happened . What if the child came from a larger family, where the other children are completely normal? What if despicable acts are committed by someone who is only a child themselves? Today’s case seems to argue for nature, or a biological disposition to commit evil. This case is pretty gruesome and definitely not for young ears. This is the case of Charlie Brandt.
