Part 2 focuses on the psychopathology of serial killers, their evolution from child to adult, and the various emerging and evolving categories and profiles of serial offenders. Vronsky points out that law enforcement, psychologists, psychiatrists, and criminologists disagree among themselves as to how to categorize the broad range of offender types, and explores some of the different approaches, all illustrated with case study examples.
Part 3 focuses on the investigation of serial homicide, particularly on the various profiling systems from the FBI’s “crime scene analysis” profiling, to British law enforcement’s “psychological profiling”, and Canadian police development of “geographic profiling.” Vronsky explores the pros and cons of the various systems with case study examples of how profiling has both succeeded and failed in homicide investigations.
Serial Killers concludes with a chapter based on FBI studies and statements by serial killers and a few survivors of serial killer attacks as how to best survive an encounter with a serial killer.
You get all of this with an "easy" to read format.
Giving anything less than 5 out of 5 stars is a sin, and you are likely to be: a white Male, ages 25-27 suffering from psychosis, horrible appearance, can't hold a job due to mental conditions, collects disability, a disorganized Killer who wets his bed, lives with his dominating mother, and enjoys stealing and sniffing women's shoes.
