Knowing one like him, and his family, I am certain Kevin was plainly born like that. His real-world counterpart fortunately has not murdered anyone - but can you imagine that his own sister would not talk to him for years? In the same house? His parents were absolutely not to blame: I know them both as kind people who adored their baby son (too much, IMO) and were dismayed about how he turned out. But it could not be helped. His first girlfriend set him straight in the end, fortunately; till then, some of us had seriously considered the possibility he might fall criminal.

You don't know what happens behind closed doors.

For all you know, the child was abused and neglected just like Kevin was.

For all I know, he wasn't.

The question is: What happened to his sister?

Why do I care about what happened to his sister?

It might tell us something important about her brother's personality.

Or you could stop speaking cryptically like an idiot.

Sibling behavior isn't an indicator of parental quality.

Abusive families often choose one child as a scapegoat to prevent sibling solidarity against the abusers.
