Psychological Profiling – Inside the Mind of a Criminal

Psychological, or criminal, profiling was informally used as early as the 1880s, when two physicians attempted to determine who Jack the Ripper was using clues from the crime scene. Its first official use was during an investigation in the United States, which helped to capture ‘mad bomber’ George Metesky. The bomber had who had eluded… Continue reading Psychological Profiling – Inside the Mind of a Criminal
