The perfect murder: is there such a thing? The term in itself is a gargantuan oxymoron, for how can anything with roots in evil and depravity ever be described as 'perfect’?
Perfection is a newborn baby cradled in its mothers arms, or a summer heat eased by the lap of a gentle breeze. But murder? A perfect murder? It cannot exist, can it?
The answer to that would probably depend on the person answering the question. People rely on instinct and personal barriers which prevent them from encroaching a darker side, or straying from what they perceive to be their own sense of decency.
But evil or wicked deeds, though widely defined within the laws of society, are still subjective entities, subject to the whims and restraints of individual taste.
One person’s idea of depravity might not necessarily invoke the same feelings of horror in another.
