I am grateful for the partnerships that helped spur this symposium, and for the partnerships that were formed as a result.
The attendees also reflected the international nature of the serial murder problem, as there were attendees from ten different countries on five continents.
The agenda encompassed a variety of topics related to serial murder including common myths, definitions, typologies, pathology and causality, forensics, the role of the media, prosecution issues, investigative task force organization, and major case management issues.
Each day included panel discussions, case presentations, and discussion groups addressing a range of topics related to serial murder.
This monograph is a culmination of the input and discussion of the attendees on the major issues related to serial murder.
The contents are based upon the notes taken during the presentations, panel discussions, and break-out group sessions.
