Dick exhibits several of the characteristics typically attributed to psychopaths. Two of those characteristics that he shows are control over the murder and deceitful actions performed in daily situations. Serial killers are generally either in control over the murders they perform, or make small mistakes, causing their capture to be easier. Like Dennis Rader, who “showed ingenuity and complete control” during his murder of the Otero family, Dick is the former type of killer. He carefully planned out how the murder of the Clutters was to happen. For example, after Perry shot each member of the Clutter family, Dick carefully searched for the spent shotgun shells to leave as little evidence as possible – “But the voice plunges on, ejecting a fusillade of sounds and images: Hickock hunting the discharged shell; hurrying, hurrying, and Kenyon’s head in a circle of light, the murmur of muffled pleadings, then Hickock again scrambling after a used cartridge…” (Capote 244-245).
