Linville Explores Profiling Research for Serial Killers & Rapists

Criminal justice major Aimee Linville will give her URCA oral presentation titled "Profiling Serial Killers and Serial Rapists" on April 11 at the 10:30 a.m. session in the Convocation Center's Faculty Room. Under the guidance of her faculty sponsor, Professor Marc Hedrick, Aimee has found that "Research suggests that these types of offenders may share a similar set of characteristics ... (and) has shown that there are some similarities in offenders’ pasts, in their characteristics, and in their crimes." In her presentation, she "will examine the research that has been done to determine the usefulness of profiling theories, which include the classical and positive schools, rational choice theory, and routine activity theory."
