Criminal Behavior Three Unsolved Murders Michelle England Three Unsolved Murders There is nothing more disturbing and frustrating than killers. They are all violent predators whose criminal offenses must be profiled. These people kill, which fills complex psychological requirements (Longo, 2018). Although their mission most of the time is to kill, sometimes they steal, but from experience of profiling serial killers and interviewing over hundreds of them, they are motivated in the minds and are not concerned with the money. Since they kill for psychological reasons, in most cases, they leave several clues for profilers. This is because several criminals always want their scenes of crime to appear in some way. This is usually followed by a lot of fantasy involvement regarding how they kill (Fox, Levin & Fridel, 2018). Therefore, there is a lot of their personality that is left at the scene of the crime. In the three unsolved murders, I have managed to identify and describe two profiling choices. These include DNA profiling and sexual orientation profiling (information science). DNA profiling- this profiling method involves the determination of unique characteristics from an individual's DNA, such as fingerprints (Fox, Levin & Fridel, 2018). This analysis is intended to identify DNA barcoding. Using DNA as a profiling choice would be useful especially when matching the victim’s DNA sample (for instance, semen stain or blood) from the scene of the crime of the offenders and this relies on DNA regions. The DNA profiling technique embroils cutting up the DNA by use of restriction endonucleases enzymes that are capable of cutting the DNA just when they arise through a specific sequence (Fox, Levin & Fridel, 2018). Suppose the DNA of everyone were similar, then the fragments left after the molecule turmoil slicing would all have the same length. However, specific repeated units of DNA vary significantly from one person to the other. This means the lengths of the offenders’ cut parts will not be similar to the other different offenders cut fragments (this is due to the varying number of repeats). Yes. The serial killer did murder the elderly victims according to the post mortem revelations. In the three unresolved murder cases, the post mortem examinations reveal that the elderly victims suffered sexual assaults, strangulation with broken hyoid bones, severed spinal cords and broken spines which suggest that the victims struggled with the killers before they succumbed. These are violent predators that kill people to fulfill their complex psychological requirements. In most identified cases, the key objective of the perpetrators is to kill. However, they sometimes end up stealing. References Fox, J. A., Levin, J., & Fridel, E. E. (2018). Extreme killing: Understanding serial and mass murder. Sage Publications. Longo, P. (2018).
