GRISSOM: James Tilly Matthews. Early 19th century London. Matthews was in Bedlam Hospital awaiting trial. Doctors were trying to determine his sanity. Several interviewed him. Half thought he was sane, half insane. Turns out he was perfectly normal ... except when someone mentioned politics.

A specific object or word that triggers the urge to kill. That's a form of delusional psychosis. Rare, but does exist.
