The cases that haunt us : from Jack the Ripper to JonBenet Ramsey, the FBI's legendary mindhunter sheds light on the mysteries that won't go away by John E Douglas( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 2,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America's foremost expert on criminal profiling provides his uniquely gripping analysis of seven of the most notorious murder cases in the history of crime -- from the Whitechapel murders to JonBenet Ramsey -- often contradicting conventional wisdom and legal decisions. Jack the Ripper. Lizzie Borden. The Zodiac Killer. Certain homicide cases maintain an undeniable, almost mystical hold on the public imagination. They touch a nerve deep within us because of the personalities involved, their senseless depravity, the nagging doubts about whether justice was done, or because, in some instances, no suspect has ever been identified or caught. In The Cases That Haunt Us, twenty-five-year-FBI-veteran John Douglas, profiling pioneer and master of modern criminal investigative analysis, and author and filmmaker Mark Olshaker, the team behind the best-selling Mindhunter series, explore the tantalizing mysteries that both their legions of fans and law enforcement professionals ask about most. Among the questions they tackle: Was Jack the Ripper actually the Duke of Clarence, eldest grandson of Queen Victoria, or perhaps a practicing medical doctor? And did highly placed individuals within Scotland Yard have a good idea of the Ripper's identity, which they never revealed? Douglas and Olshaker create a detailed profile of the killer, and reveal their chief suspect. Was Lizzie Borden truly innocent of the murder of her father and stepmother as the Fall River, Massachusetts, jury decided, or was she the one who took the ax and delivered those infamous "whacks"? Through a minute-by-minute behavioral analysis of the crime, the authors come to a convincing conclusion. Did Bruno Richard Hauptmann single-handedly kidnap the baby son of Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, the most famous couple in the world, or was he an innocent man caught up and ultimately executed in a relentless rush to judgment in the "crime of the century"? What kind of person could kill six-year-old JonBenet Ramsey on Christmas night in her own home? Douglas was called in on the case shortly after the horrifying murder, and his conclusions are hard-hitting and controversial. Why, in the face of the majority of public, media, and law enforcement opinion, including former FBI colleagues, does Douglas believe that John and Patricia Ramsey did not murder their daughter? And what is the forensic and behavioral evidence he brings to bear to make his claim? Taking a fresh and penetrating look at each case, the authors reexamine and reinterpret accepted facts and victimology using modern profiling and the techniques of criminal analysis developed by Douglas within the FBI. This book deconstructs the evidence and widely held beliefs surrounding each case and rebuilds them -- with fascinating and haunting results

Sexual homicide : patterns and motives by Robert K Ressler( Book )

20 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Who are the men committing the rising number of serial homicides in the U.S. - and why do they kill? The increase in these violent crimes over the past decade has created an urgent need for more and better information about these men: their crime scene patterns, violent acts, and above all, their motivations for committing these shocking and repetitive murders. This authoritative book represents the data, findings, and implications of a long-term F.B.I.-sponsored study of serial sex killers. Specially trained F.B.I. agents examined thirty-six convicted, incarcerated sexual murderers to build a valuable new bank of information which reveals the world of the serial sexual killer in both quantitative and qualitative detail. Data was obtained from official psychiatric and criminal records, court transcripts, and prison reports, as well as from extensive interviews with the offenders themselves. Featured in this book is detailed information on the F.B.I.'s recently developed Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (VICAP) and a sample of an actual VICAP Crime Analysis Report Form

Crime classification manual( Book )

19 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Violent crime is a growing concern in our society: the number of reported cases of murder, arson, and sexual assault climbs steadily every year. At the same time, there has been a decrease in the number of these crimes solved - in the past thirty years there has been a 25 percent drop in the solution rate for homicide alone. Law enforcement officials feel mounting public pressure to apprehend perpetrators as quickly as possible, yet their efforts are hampered by poor communication between police departments, a lack of common terminology, and the increased mobility of criminals. Each police department has traditionally operated independently, using its own investigative techniques and its own language and definitions, with limited interdepartmental training. The Crime Classification Manual is a diagnostic system that will standardize terminology and for the first time formally classify the critical characteristics of the perpetrators and victims of the three major violent crimes - murder, arson, and sexual assault. It is the result of nearly a decade of study of murderers, rapists, child molesters, abductors, and arsonists at the FBI's National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime in Quantico, Virginia. This new standard system will put into the hands of police officers - in any size community, in any size department - the same investigative techniques and definitions used by the FBI to coordinate their investigations and solve crimes. The Crime Classification Manual identifies for investigators the clues and crime scene indicators common to each type of crime, so they can begin piecing together a solution and establishing a motive as soon as they arrive at the crime scene. Once a general idea of the perpetrator and the motive has been established, investigators can use the CCM to identify the other aspects common to that type of crime: victimology, modus operandi, physical evidence, the weapon, autopsy results, etc. What's more, the CCM offers invaluable how-to advice on such topics as staging and personation, crime scene photography and the analysis of crime scene photos, prescriptive interviewing, guidelines on the use of search warrants, and more. And its unique and useful numbering system can be easily adopted and implemented in police departments and bureaus nationwide. The Pocket Guide to the Crime Classification Manual presents in handy outline form the data in the main volume and serves as a quick in-the-field reference tool for CCM users. The Crime Classification Manual will serve as an indispensable manual for investigators, prosecutors, mental health professionals, criminal justice and correctional institution personnel, as well as criminologists, policymakers, and anyone else whose work brings them into contact with either the offender or victim of violent crime
