2041 words - 8 pages

Andrei Romanovich Chikatilo seemed to be just like a regular man. He had a wife, two kids, was a teacher in Russian literature, an engineer, and a proud soviet party member. No one would have ever guessed he was one of the world’s most notorious serial killers. By day, he was your average Joe literature teacher, but by night he took upon a darker passion that involved rape and murder. He would lure his victims into decollate locations with sadistic intent unknown to them. Chikatilo managed see out his sick secrets for over a decade with little suspicion. His evil desires stemmed from his childhood.

Andrei Romanvich Chikatilo was born on October 16th, 1936, in Yablochnoye, Ukraine. He had a younger sister and supposedly an older brother that was cannibalized before he was born from what his mother always told him. At the time he was born, famine was spread throughout a vast amount of Ukraine, and his early childhood was consumed by poverty. His situation worsened when the USSR entered World War II against Germany, causing constant bombing raids on Ukraine. On top of Chikatilo starving and hiding from the German soldiers, he is believed to have suffered from a condition referred to as “water on the brain” at birth. This caused him to have genital-urinary tract problems later in life, including bed-wetting in his pre-teens and the inability to sustain an erection the older he got, although he was able to ejaculate (A+E Networks). Another possibility for his inability could be the fact that he watched his mother get raped by a German soldier during the war (Bio Movie) Chikatilo’s father only made his life worse. He was drafted into the fight against Germany, let himself get captured and held prisoner. When his father finally returned home, Chikatilo was subjected to bullying at school due to his father’s “cowardice” acts (A+E Networks). Chikatilo later joined the communist party only to find out that he was not like the other boys in his youth group. He was self-conscious and embarrassed by his lack of sexual experience (Levin). Even though he was attracted to the opposite sex he could not preform sexually, soon enough the people his age found out about his condition in not being able to perform sexually and it became gossip amongst the village. The cruelty Chikatilo’s peers burdened him with lead him to want to better himself, so he decided he wanted to study law. He set his eyes on attending Moscow State University, but failed the entrance exam (Bio Movie). He was disappointed in himself, but still went to vocational school. In 1960 he moved to Rodionovo-Nesvetayevsky, a town near Rostov, where he became a telephone engineer (A+E Networks). His sister later moved in with him. She was concerned by his lack of success with women, so she set him up with a local girl and one of her friends, Fayina. Both of them having no better prospects, married in 1963. Chikatilo finally found someone he could communicate and relate to on an emotional level in a...
