Christopher Wilder seemed to have it all. Born into a loving family, he never wanted for anything as a child. He was doted on, and probably spoiled, by his parents. Yet there was something amiss about him. He had few friends as a young child, and was often alone. As he approached adolescencehe demonstrated a proclivity to peeping in windows. When he was caught doing this, there were no apparent repercussions, almost a “boys will be boys” attitude.
As Wilder approached his late teens, he graduated from voyeurism to rape. At the intervention of his parents he was given probation and no jail time. Perhaps sensing that things were not going to improve for him in Australia, Wilder emigrated to the United States. He was not a model citizen in the United States either.
