3. She thought a serial murder was the epitome of a hero

"She became enthralled by a real-life American serial killer, William Edward Hickman, whose gruesome, sadistic dismemberment of 12-year-old girl named Marion Parker in 1927 shocked the nation. Rand filled her early notebooks with worshipful praise of Hickman. According to biographer Jennifer Burns, author of Goddess of the Market, Rand was so smitten with Hickman that she modeled her first literary creation -- Danny Renahan, the protagonist of her unfinished first novel, The Little Street -- on him." ttps://www.thoughtco.com/ayn-rand-sociopath-who-admired-serial-killer-3975225

A bit of a psychopath herself.
