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.
