A statement was made most serial killers are white males in their 20's and 30's and live in the United States. These demographics often baffle people. Why do these characteristics make people more prone to serial killing? or do they?

The following article excerpt below (see page 14 on Base Rates) from the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin has an interesting perspective on the race issue. What other explanations might there be for these demographics?
