Psychiatrists have compared a psychopaths gaze to a ‘narrow-beam searchlight’. When he loses interest, and looks away, it feels as if a light was suddenly switched off.
Detective Robert Keppel remembers that in interrogating Ted Bundy:
“the only time he looked at me was when he was manipulating me. At other times Bundy’s eyes darted around rapidly in their sockets, following whatever movements were in his area.”
