Abstract

Extract:

Crime scene analysis and criminal profiling methods are dependent upon a host of different variables that must be gathered, weighed, and interpreted. Chief among these are the characteristics evident in the crime scene. Hardly a text or a research paper on either subject can avoid them, and most rely heavily upon related factors as a basis for their utility or findings. It is the essence of criminological analysis: examination, interpretation, classification, and comparison of offenders, victims, and their characteristics.
