David Sura wishes he’d never woken up from his coma.

It is a well-known fact amongst true crime enthusiasts that head injuries are disproportionately common in serial killers. Whether we’re talking Jerry Brudos, Richard Ramirez (who suffered two) or David “Son of Sam” Berkowitz (who suffered three!), it seems like most serial killers were hit on the head at some point in their life. Truth is, brain injuries are common in criminals, more than they are in the general population. But why is that? And do all brain injuries lead to criminal behaviour?
