Good question, and a plausible theory. Extensive research by scientists on the etiology of pedophilia indicates a genetic predisposition as well as environmental factors. When you add other factors such as limited education, diminished intellect, an environment of alcohol abuse and domestic abuse (LLW2’s own stepmother admitted that LLW1 frequently drank too much and the police often came to their house for disturbances); the confluence of all these factors creates a dangerous recipe for cyclical aberrant human behavior. Also add the fact that LLW2’s biological mother and unborn sibling were killed by his own father, LLW1, and you can see it would be a miracle if LLW2 had turned out alright. I wonder if; but would doubt there was any early intervention or psychiatric help provided to a young LLW2. Researchers have found that pedophiles lag behind the average IQ by 10 points, a discovery that is consistent with developmental problems, whether before birth or in childhood. Certainly, LLW2 is not particularly bright, and RAW1’s own attorney stated that RAW1 has difficulty reading and writing. I’ve seen numerous publicly available documents related to these and some other relatives, and sadly several of them looked like they had difficulty scrawling out their own names. Although scientists estimate that possibly up to 1 in 20 men may have pedophile sexual desires, not all pedophiles molest children and not all child molesters are pedophiles. Certainly LLW is a pedophile as his criminal record has proven. Others involved in this crime may have been either pedophiles and / or child molesters. It seems like a dubious distinction, but according to the American Psychiatric Association they technically are different medical disorders / diagnoses. To your last point, I don’t think that LLW2 was a mastermind of anything. I strongly suspect he was initiated into a sad intergenerational legacy under the tutelage of elder male clan members.
