Looking Ahead: Final Project: Psychological Aspects of Offender Behavior
Not all mentally ill individuals exhibit violent behavior and commit violent crimes, and not all criminals are mentally ill. The mental health of the offender, however, does play a role in the execution, investigation, and prosecution of a crime.For your Final Project, you analyze a current or historical mass murder case. This could be any case involving killing three or more persons at a single location with no cooling-off period between murders; however, there must be enough information about the case for you to make an in-depth analysis.To prepare for this Assignment:
- Review pages 305–309 in the Bartol and Bartol course text.
- Select a current or historical mass murder case.
