If you chose to post your responses to one of the options in the discussion group, you will receive 2 extra points.
Posts should be 1-2 paragraphs.
Instructions: Please respond to one of the options below and post your response in the Extra Credit discussion section. Please read some of your colleagues’ posts.
Option 1
You are called to a confusing case. An elderly man is found dead in a field near his home. He has a bullet wound to his chest. No weapon is found at the scene, although a pair of scissors is discovered near the body. Surveillance video shows the man walking toward the field and he has something that cannot be identified in his left hand.
How would you classify this case?
What evidence would you base this on?
What do you think happened?
What other investigative strategies would you use?
Option 2
Andrea Yates was found guilty in drowning of five of her young children in the bathtub. She was convicted of capital murder, but the jury refused the death penalty. Was sentenced to life imprisonment with the possibility of parole after 40 years.
A subsequent trial in 2006 found her not guilty by reason of insanity, as she was suffering from postpartum depression, had attempted to commit suicide before the murder of her children, and was under close supervision of her husband and mother-in-law.
Where do you believe she should be held? What do you think her punishment should be? How did religion influence her decision?
Option 3
Have you ever seen autoerotic asphyxiation portrayed in popular films, television shows, or news stories (please exclude pornographic/XXX /fetish films for this exercise)? If so, how was the case presented? Was it consistent with our profiling course materials?
Option 4
After reading the chapter on Jack the Ripper, what would your profile of Jack the Ripper include? Would your profile exclude anything from the profile in the text?
Why or why not?
