Full Event Details:
The idea that criminals’ crime scene behaviours may contain clues to their identity is a fascinating idea, known as criminal, or behavioural profiling. Despite the FBI taking it seriously, and countless movies and TV shows dedicated to criminal profiling, there is very little scientific evidence to suggest that offender profiling ever leads to the identification and apprehension of offenders in serial murder cases. This talk will look at the case of the BTK serial murderer and you will see how FBI criminal profilers failed to identify this killer, several times, over a thirty year period.
Can be delivered in school.
