A man who murdered his ex-girlfriend and her new partner outside the Matalan store where they worked has been jailed for life with a minimum term of 23 years.
With the news today that this murderer has been put in jail, it does beg the question whether they are ill or evil.
Saunders planned this murder. Researching how to kill on the internet, so it wasn't a spur of the moment thing. But, clearly there have been issues in his life, the last message to his dad shows that. But if he has come from a disruptive background, is that an excuses for his actions?
As he told the police, "I'm sorry, you know sometimes, you just snap."
Most people who "snap" don't go out and kill their ex girlfriends. Do murderers have an illness which is undiagnosed by current medicine, or, are they are simply evil, pathetic creatures?
