Why do some women (and men) become felon groupies?


A local couple are raising their grandchild after their daughter and only child was convicted of harassing the family of her boyfriend's victim. The boyfriend is serving a life sentence for robbery and murder; and the daughter met him through a pen pal site. The parents say she had pursued a similar romance in HS with the man that assaulted her rival on the cheerleader squad. They also contend their grandchild's father was yet another convict, who got the daughter pregnant between jail stints (and who has subsequently been executed). My question: what makes some women (and men) felon groupies?

    dashingscorpio, very insightful - and a little scary, too. I have heard how Manson and Ted Bundy had a bunch of adoring fans; I don't understand it, but you may be very right about the fascination and misplaced sympathy.

    Could be bad genes proliferating? Scary thought.
