Summary
1
PSY310 Final: Frank Timmons- Serial Killer
Frank Timmons was the second youngest child born in a large city in the year 1964. Franks
parents were father Billy and mother Loretta later in his life divorced, from some of his siblingâ??s
point of view his father Billy was verbally abusive and alcoholism ran in the family. When Frank
was only twelve years old his mother Loretta died. It was said she was not a very active parent in
her childrenâ??s life. The younger children were mostly left to be taken care of by one of their
older siblings Margaret. She started taking after their father being verbally abusive and drinking
alcohol. There was a possibility of sexual abuse to her younger siblings and she had multiple
suicide attempts. Frank did well in school to a certain extent he had a roughness to him and got
in trouble often. He and his brother were arrested for rapping a young woman, but no files were
brought upon it.
A year later he was arrested for trespassing and then a year after that it was for driving under
the influence (SNHU, n.d). Frank has had his issues from growing up to be a teenager and adult.
He was abused sexually assaulted and had a parent that was never around and a sister that
watched him and his siblings thatâ??s not a life for any child. This did a lot of emotional damage to
Frank while growing up.
During Franks late 20â??s he was arrested and charged with abducting and brutally rapping a
woman. He was than sentenced to fifteen years in prison, after his fifteen years was completed he
was given parole where he moved into a house not far from where the crime occurred with his
wife. His neighbors new about his past in prison, but they liked Frank, so they looked past it. He
also was able to receive a job as a construction worker. A year after his parole had officially
ended is when the murders started taking place. At first three teenage girls were brought behind a
church and two of them were molested than a month later a murder happened. Within eleven
months Frank committed several robberies, sexual assaults, and a total of eight murders. With all
2
PSY310 Final: Frank Timmons- Serial Killer
this that has gone on his family and neighbors defend him and think he is innocent from
everything that has happened (SNHU, n.d).
All of Franks victims were women based on his background; being verbally abused by his
father and sexually abused by his older sister Margaret. Not having his mother as an active
parent in his life before she died when he was just twelve years old did a number on his mental
capacity. He may feel that the rape and abuse of teenage women is a â??punishmentâ? he could
never give his sister or what he feels women in general may deserve because of what happened
to him and his siblings growing up and no one helping them. Now based on the previous
information how could the childhood of Frank Timmons increase his odds to becoming the
criminal he is today?
II.
Crime Assessment
The UNKNOWN SUSPECT of South Carolina, Missouri, and Tennessee took place between
the years of 1990-1998. With this case an unknown suspect beat and strangled a 28-year-old
white female, he ended up doing this after he broke into her home on April 4, 1990 (n.d, FBI).
About eight years after this murder occurred on March 28, 1998 a mother and her 12-year old
daughter were murdered, both victims were shot with a .22 caliber gun, and the little girl was
sexually assaulted.
The similarities between these two cases is that there was no rhyme or reason on the victims
that were picked. There was no motive, in both cases the victims were of women alone and the
suspects used guns even though the Murderer of 1990-1998 also strangled his first victim to
death his second and third victims were shot. The differences with these two cases is that one
suspect Frank Timmons lured his victims into his clutch while the other unknown suspect just
broke into their homes and killed them there.
3
PSY310 Final: Frank Timmons- Serial Killer
It is difficult to determine what was the influence behind the two suspects behavior at the
time of the crime. There wasnâ??t enough background on either case to fully understand the
individuals completely. Though Frank had a better explanation of his background than the
unknown suspect did. The learning perspective is something that can be taken into consideration
with these cases. The learning perspective is the change of behavior due to the environmental
influences around the person(s) (2017, Bartol & Bartol). Frank and the â??Unknown Suspectâ??
crimes could be associated with the social learning theory. This theory is the view that people
learn from observing others (2017, Bartol & Bartol). Especially taken into effect all the things
Frank went through as a child, itâ??s also possible the â??Unknown Suspectâ?? went through similar
issues. These childhood events can cause dramatic psychological issues for children as they
develop and grow. By, considering Frank Timmons case, a little more there is a chance he had
sociopath tendencies due to trauma he lived through when he was younger (2017, Bartol &
Bartol). He grew up learning his behavior he didnâ??t just wake up one day and decide this was
how he was going to be. He was modeling after his older sister Margaret and following from
example. Now the unknown suspect case is a little harder to consider because we do not know
who the murderer was. So, there is no background information on the person but, from what
there is known about him it looks like he has no control over his anger and even though he went
years without a murder (or one that was found) he doesnâ??t have much control on his behavior as
well (2017, Bartol & Bartol). Maybe something happened when he was younger that he is
following now, could be like what happened to Frank Timmons, but it wonâ??t be known now.
Another crime case to consider would be Kevin Lamont Carter. There is not much
background on Kevin he was placed in prison for 18-months for rape after he served his time he
went back home to his girlfriend lured her outside and shot her (FBI, September 07, 2010).
4
PSY310 Final: Frank Timmons- Serial Killer
A couple of similarities to Kevinâ??s case and Franks is they were both arrested for rape and
murder. Itâ??s hard to say if their background information is the same or even have similarities due
to not having much information to go on with Kevinâ??s. Though some differences with the case
are that Frank had numerous victims and Kevin only had two victims. Kevin had a tie to one of
the victims being his girlfriend while Frank had no tie or connection to his victims. Another
difference is Frank didnâ??t just have murder and rape he also had sexual assault and robbery to his
list of crimes.
There is not much information on the background of Kevin Carter so being able to find a
motive for this criminal would be hard, same with the â??unknown suspectâ?? both of these criminals
could have had a hard life growing up or experienced the same issues that Frank Timmons had
received while a child. Since all three of these criminals attacked women they could have had
lack of a mother growing up. It is hard to think of a motive for these criminals when there is not
much to go on. However, it could be as simple as biological, developmental or even
environmental factors that played a role in each of these criminalâ??s behaviors.
III.
Profile:
After reviewing the case of Frank Timmons based on the analysis data he didnâ??t graduate
high school; due to not having enough credits. He instead worked to try and help his family by
providing them with food and money. Frank was described as a â??light-skinned blackâ? man (or
mulatto). After completing his first sentence Frank married a woman named Jenny Nelson and
moved not far from where the crimes would occur. Frank was in his late 30â??s when he was
arrested and charged with various crimes (SNHU, n.d).
5
PSY310 Final: Frank Timmons- Serial Killer
There are a few different forms of biological factors that could take place and have an impact
on Frank Timmons behavior. One of the biological factors that could be represented would be
the genetic factor. Genetics play a big role with our biological factors as human beings, so with
these genetics factor itâ??s possible someone else in Timmons household has psychopath
tendencies. By reading the case file it seems that Frank had low arousal and fear responses which
can co-inside to generic factors as well (Bartol & Bartol, 2017).
Neuropsychological factors typically take effect in the frontal lobe and can have big effects
on an individualâ??s behavior. Especially when the person is a child or adolescent, children like
Timmons who are malnourished growing up can develop neuropsychological issues within the
frontal lobe which can affect them as they grow older. This can cause issues with problem
solving skills. Frank may have problems with self-control or even self-regulation (Bartol &
Bartol, 2017).
Some developmental risk factors with Frank Timmons that came into effect with his behavior
was under the social risk factor which was his poverty level. Frankâ??s case file states that while
growing up the Timmonsâ?? family was on food stamps and received DES subsidies. He worked
to try and help buy food for his family. Under the parental and family risk factors there were a
couple of factors as well for Frank. One factor was minimal parental monitoring or affection.
His mother was barely in the picture, his older sibling watched over Frank, when Frank was 12
she died. Physical and emotional abuse was present for Frank, while he was growing up his
father was also a drunk. His older sister that oversaw the siblings was suicidal and had substance
abuse issues (Bartol & Bartol, 2017). So, for Frank growing up there were a lot of developmental
factors that came into play in the social and parental/family risk factors area.
6
PSY310 Final: Frank Timmons- Serial Killer
It is unknown if Frank Timmons mother ever used drugs or alcohol before or after pregnancy
with Frank or any of her other children. This could be an environmental factor that could have
had an impact on Frankâ??s behavior if there was any known evidence behind it. Another area to
investigate would be Frankâ??s living quarters, since he was living in poverty; they were probably
renting a place. Most of their income came from DES subsidies. The year Frank was born 1964
the use of lead paint was common in places and while living in poverty they didnâ??t have the
money to keep up normal maintenance with any house/apartment requires. Frankâ??s mother and
father did not pay much attention to him or his siblings so getting lead poisoning would not be
out of the question. The lead paint could have sent Neurotoxins into his nervous system and
produced a change in Frankâ??s behavior (Bartol & Bartol, 2017).
Due to Frankâ??s childhood by not having a mother around very much and his father being
abusive and an alcoholic while depending on his abusive sister to pretty much raise him and his
siblings did a lot to his mental status. He was not a normal child growing up instead of
concentrating on school and doing sports all the time Frank worked so he could help support his
family. Even though he was on the football team during school he still lived with the abuse at
home.
There are some biological, and criminal violence that come into play here that have molded
Frank into the person he is today. Frank and his siblings were malnourished since they were in
the poverty level. Not receiving enough food and nutrients that are needed to run oneâ??s body can
influence oneâ??s brain like the neuropsychological factors. Another thing to consider and
investigate is while Frank was in football, coping with malnutrition itâ??s possible he received
several concussions and ended up with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (C.T.E) (Bartol &
Bartol, 2017).
7
PSY310 Final: Frank Timmons- Serial Killer
The best theory that would fit with Franks case would be the developmental theories. Now
developmental theories help to provide a set of guiding principles and concepts, which can help
to describe as well as explain the human developmental process. The theories of development
not only help with these things previously said, but also help to start the process of thinking
about human growth, development and learning (Bartol & Bartol, 2017). So, for Franks case
with his childhood background including the abuse, sexual assault and malnourishment can play
a huge toll on Franks developmental process, and how he thinks as a human being. It is possible
that Frank did not just wake up one day and decide to become a killer, or a rapist the years of
torment that went on in his life triggered something in his brain that set him off. This is not a
reason for him to become the criminal he is, but it does put in perspective a theory that can
coincide with his reasoning.
IV.
Conclusion and Investigative use
Frank Timmons was not the average kid growing up, he was abused, neglected, and
malnourished most of his childhood. Getting into trouble seemed like an easy thing for Frank to
do, from driving under the influence, to murder he just couldnâ??t seem to get a handle on his
temper and emotions from the sounds of things. His victims were not picked due to certain
circumstances they were done at random except the fact they were all women. This goes together
with some other serial killers discussed previously in the report like the â??Unknown suspectâ?? and
Kevin Carter both other suspects also murdered just women, the reason behind their murders is
still unclear; however, these suspects could have had some of the same childhood issues that
Frank did. With Frank, Kevin and the â??Unknown Suspectâ?? itâ??s possible that biological and
developmental factors could play a role in their criminal behavior. Everything from growing up
8
PSY310 Final: Frank Timmons- Serial Killer
in a bad situation to a serious accident that could trigger a psychotic breakdown is a possibility
for people in these types of situations.
Based on predictive analysis if Frank Timmons were to be set free and not be locked away he
would strike again. It may not be rape, assault, robbery, theft or murder. Then again it could be
all of them the way Franks background checks out he has multiple offenses for different attacks.
There may be even more that were not brought to justice and caught on, you can try to reform
some people, but in this case, you cannot reform someone that does not want it. Frank was in jail
for fifteen years before and his release was good until he was off parole thatâ??s when things went
downhill for him, whatâ??s to say he wouldnâ??t do it again.
Some intervention strategies that would help to mitigate future criminal behavior on Frank
Timmons would be to keep him in prison or on supervised parole. These are just a couple
interventions that would help lessen his criminal behavior, but if Frank was just placed in prison
and not allowed out for good behavior or parole this would drastically help decline his criminal
behavior. He would not be allowed out in the publicâ??s eye given him less of a chance to try and
rob, rape, assault, or murder someone. Another possible thing to do would place Frank on
supervised parole, but on this one it could get tricky last time he was on parole the moment he
got off he started the murders up. In retrospect we would not want this scenario to happen again.
Itâ??s possible that there could be a program that would be beneficial to Frank and the public, but
to better help keep his future behavior on the low and in good graces it would be best to keep
him locked up.
Some limitations of data that were not available while developing my report are Frank
Timmons wifeâ??s website. It was hard to track down this may have given me a better insight on
Frank and it could have provided me with different information like his religion or ethnicity;
9
PSY310 Final: Frank Timmons- Serial Killer
besides what the report said of a â??light-skinned blackâ?? man. Some other information that would
have been useful while creating this report would have been more about his life growing up. Was
the state involved in trying to take Frank and his siblings away, or maybe Frank got a concussion
while playing football in school that triggered his behavior. Things along this line would have
been very helpful and useful during my research with my report.
Based on my report the information collected could help to contribute to the capture,
understanding and prosecution of the individual because the report is based on the life of Frank.
It shows us that he did not have a very easy child hood to grow up with, he was not like most
kids. He tried to help support his family and in turn he didnâ??t graduate from high school because
he was working to try and get more money and food on the table for his family. He was the
second youngest of 13 children yet by the time he was old enough to get out of the house a lot of
abuse was already placed on him. This with the contact sport of football didnâ??t help matters
much. To be able to prosecute Frank the prosecution attorney can go back through his records of
violent behaviors and crimes that have been committed. He was arrested when he was a minor
for rape of a girl, though he was not committed at the time for that rape it can help to show his
mental compacity and stability.
