Why are most notorious killers of recent years referred to in the press (and thereafter by the public at large) by their full names?  This never happens with other criminals or subject of news stories. John Mark Karr, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Wayne Gacy, John Wilkes Boothe, Mark David Chapman…It almost seems like the intent is to make the suspect sound sinister or peculiar, and thereby make them obviously guilty.  After all, if your average person told you to call him John Jacob Smith, you’d think he was pretty darned strange, no?
