Cheri Jo Bates, a freshman in college, was found murdered without any evidence as to who did it. After the body was examined by the police, the station got a letter talking about a bunch of killings the sender did, one confirming Cheri Bates’ death (Olsen 3). This shows that the sender was very confident that he would not be caught any time soon, as he was perfectly fine with the police knowing that as well. Shortly after, two teenagers were killed, police investigation led to no motive or suspect. About a year later, the Zodiac shot two more teenagers, after which he called the cops mumbling, “I want to report a double murder.
These two men, Perry Smith and Dick Hickock, showed this family no remorse whatsoever that resulted in killings of Herbert, Bonnie, Nancy, and Kenyon Clutter. They had it all planned out I'm sure... go in, tie them up, find the money, and then take off. Flee the city or hell even the state. The killers were under the impression that there was a safe in the house and when they realized that it was not, they could have left. Nobody had to die that day, especially in a brutal way like

In this essay I will talk about the investigative techniques that was used to help identify the Zodiac killer. Out of the several eyewitness of the Zodiac killer, most described him as being around 5’8 and having a real beefy build, weighing around 200 pounds. The eyewitnesses say he had short brown curly hair, and that he looked about 26-30 years old in 1969. In the taxicab shooting there was three teenage eyewitnesses who watched the shooting happen from their bedroom.
At Ridgway’s sentencing he stated that he had picked prostitutes as his victims as he hated all of the prostitutes and did not want to have to pay them for sex (State of Washington v. Gary Leon Ridgway 2003). Ridgway also picked prostitutes as there was no aggravation in doing so and would not be noticed. Ridgway’s attitude was that a prostitute would not be missed or be reported missing, there for he could kill as many as he wanted and would never get caught (Missen, 2000). A third of Ridgway’s victims were from a minority backgrounds and most of them were younger that the 22 years old (Levi-Menzi & Shields, 2007). It is prostitutes that are more prevalent to becoming victims as they are already in harm’s way through the nature of their work and profession.
Chandler produces the classic detective novel through his use of conniving criminals, corrupt police, and characters that are slighted by the actions of those in their lives. The novels chief detective, Philip Marlowe, is unable to eliminate every criminal that crosses his path, much to his dismay. Although most of the offenders are apparent from the beginning of the novel, some are not revealed until towards the end. Consider mob boss Eddie Mars; well known by the police officers, along with his hitman Canino, yet no one seems to do anything about it. The absence of action is not a result of ineptitude; it is merely from the mob having control over everything, spanning from bootlegging to covering up murders.

Unlike ISIS, General Zaroff only hunts men of African, Chinese, Caucasian, and Sailor decent. If he does not find the person after one night, he gets the hounds. After the second night, Ivan and all of the hounds. If he does not find the person after three days, The hunted wins. For three days, Rainsford toughed out these conditions by setting elusive traps, schemes, and trails.
A serial killer can be defined as a person who murders 3 or more people with a significant cooling off period (a break) in between each one (FBI). Credit for coining the phrase “serial killer” is commonly given to former FBI Special Agent Robert Ressler, one of the founding members of the Bureau’s elite Behavioral Science Unit, now called the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU). Serial murder is a relatively rare event, estimated to compromise less than one percent of all murders in any given year. Though uncommon, serial killers do not limit public fascination; much like a car accident on the side of the road.
Accused Again – Steven Avery Steven Avery was accused of the ruthless murder of Teresa Halbach. She was on the Avery property to take photos of Steven’s van which he wanted to sell. Over the next few hours, she was ‘apparently’ murdered and her body burned. Only a few short days after this, the unreliable Manitowoc Police Department charged Steven Avery with Halbach’s murder. After following and studying the case, I am convinced that Steven is innocent, and has been framed for Halbach’s murder.
But Terence was able to walk back to his vehicle. And once he reached his car, he put down one of his hands, which gave off the illusion to the officers that he was reaching for something. At this moment one of the officers tased him, and officer Betty shot him. I do believe that shooting him was overreacting a bit, due to the fact that Terence was walking back to his vehicle calmly with no sudden movements. Tasing Terence was the right thing to do when he had gotten back to his vehicle, and when it looked like he was reaching in it.
