Did you know: the US produces the most serial killers. Up to 85% of
the world’s serial killers are in America. According to an FBI Behavioral
Unit study serial killing has climbed to an almost “epidemic
proportion”. At any given time, there are an estimated 20-50 active serial
killers. Those who change their targets or methods are often never
identified. Experts speculate on what happens to serial killers. Some may
commit suicide, die, be incarcerated, in mental institutions,
relocate, or stop killing altogether.
Prostitutes or people who lead almost nonexistent
lives are usually not reported missing in a timely fashion and
receive little media or police attention.

Roy Hazelwood, member of the FBI’s Behavioral Sciences Unit, now
the Investigative Support Unit, studied crime perpetrated by repeat serial
sex offender killers. Hazelwood identifies Caucasian males of European
descent as the most likely perpetrator in these cases.
“Every single sexual deviation is overwhelmingly dominated by white
males. And most sexually related ritualistic crimes are committed by white
Hazelwood claims that there are two types of sexual predators:
organized and disorganized.
An unknown who rapes and murders children and woman in his own
neighborhood is known as “disorganized”.
A disorganized sexual predator will use whatever
weapons are available. Disorganized are opportunistic and don’t
plan their attack. They make no
effort to conceal their crime.
An “organized” predator will hunt victims away from their
hometown and victims that are strangers. The organized sexual predator is a
planner, bringing “tools” with him. He will conceal the body and remove
“Anger/Excitation Rapist” are methodical planners. They may
practice cruelty in relationships but their killings involve strangers.
Sadistic cruelty is fundamental to a serial sex offender killer.
Restraints, ritualism, fantasies, and hatred are common. Sadism and bondage
manifests as manipulation and mind control intensifies. Serial sex offender
killers often regularly act out the sadistic fantasies they experience.
A widely publicized personality profile in the Baton Rouge serial
killer case suggested that police expect their perp to be a white male. The
man currently in custody and that is being accused of the killings is a
black male. In the Washington,
DC sniper case they suspected a white loner male. Two black men were
arrested for these crimes.
In both cases, investigators juggled numbers. They also accepted the
myth that serial murder is an interracial event. As a result of these and
other miscues, recent news articles have questioned all criminal profiling.
No profile has ever caught a killer. The entertainment industry can
disregard this fact; law enforcement cannot.
