Each day included panel discussions, case presentations, and discussion groups addressing a range of topics related to serial murder.This monograph is a culmination of the input and discussion of the attendees on the major issues related to serial murder.
Each homicide case is tragic, but there are few cases more heartrending and more difficult to understand than serial murder.
The NCAVC also conducts research into violent crime from a law enforcement perspective.
NCAVC research is designed to gain insight into criminal thought processes, motivations, and behaviors.
For years, law enforcement investigators, academics, mental health experts, and the media have studied serial murder, from Jack the Ripper in the late 1800s to the sniper killings in 2002, and from the “Zodiac Killer” in California to the “BTK Killer” in Kansas.
These diverse groups have long attempted to understand the complex issues related to serial murder investigations.Until the Serial Murder Symposium, however, there had been few attempts to reach a consensus on some of these issues.This monograph presents the findings and collective wisdom of a multidisciplinary group of experts, who brought their individual experience and insights to the same table.I would like to thank all those who participated for their willingness to share their dedication, time and expertise.
