There are some serial killers who never get caught. Turn of the century killer Jack the Ripper is a famous example. Between 1888 and 1891 an unidentified man preyed on impoverished prostitutes in the East End of London; brutally killing them and butchering their bodies. There are dozens of theories about who he might have been but no-one was ever arrested for the murders.
Dupin proved that it wasn’t Le Bon who committed the murder as the 4,000 francs were still in the apartment after the murder happened. Another convention which is found in ‘The Murders of Rue Morgue’ is the process of mental reasoning. Throughout the whole investigation of the murder, Dupin is using his knowledge to think critically about how the murder was committed. He observed little things such as the one nail missing on the window, a ribbon knotted on a light pole outside the apartment, and that the hair on Madame L’Espanaye wasn’t actually human hair.
Mrs. Conwell did only find two strong pieces of evidence which were the DNA on the letters and watermarks, but that was a weak piece of evidence since it could have meant many things. Many people believe that he isn't the murder because he was never around when the murders were being prosecuted. Around the same time the murders were taking place Sickert would leave to France with his mother and his brothers. I believe that Ripper had an ally or partner to help him with all of these murders as well.

P2 members also called ‘frati neri’ or ‘black friars’, there was also speculation that he was hung from the Blackfriar Bridge to serve as a masonic warning. Despite the availability of motives, the court acquitted the defendants for lack of evidence on 6th June 2007.

Monroe was known as quite the promiscuous woman as well as a depressed train wreck who was destroying her career/life with drugs and other unhealthy substances. This lifestyle led her to make numerous reckless decisions such as getting involved with politicians which would eventually lead to her passing (Lindsey). Many are of the opinion that Marilyn Monroe committed suicide due to depression and anxiety; however, it can be proven that the “Blonde Bombshell” was murdered in order to prevent a political affair from reaching the ears of the public. Marilyn Monroe will go down in history as one of the most well-known and influential Hollywood stars in the world. The famous actress/model lived an audacious life having been involved in countless relationships and affairs.
Ted Bundy is another famous sociopath. He was executed in 1989, but before his execution he admitted to killing at least 30 young women. “From birth Bundy was already in a category in which the FBI survey found 43 percent of sexual and serial killers: he had only one parent” (twisted minds). His early years were a little complicated because he kept changing his story. His mother left him in behind after he was born and he fell in love with a woman who left him as well.
The theory used in this journal pertains to the race, age, and gender of a serial killer; how they kill, the race, age, and gender of the victim; and how the killer lived before and during the killings. Before beginning his own study, Pakhomou (2004) found that “Serial (sexual killers are believed to be mostly white males in their twenties and thirties (at the time of the crimes) with above-average intelligence who commit intra-racial (within the same racial group) murders of strangers” (p. 220). Approximately half of them never had consensual sex with another adult, some joining the military, about half did not finish high school, and they had a history of burglary and sexual offenses prior to murders. There is no set reason or evidence that explains why people commit sexual homicide; however, there are many theories. One set factor that all researchers agree on is that “the most monstrous and most perverse sexual acts are usually committed by persons of sound mind, who are functionally rigid (in terms of a number of activities that they carry on), obsessed with fantasy and who have a determination to do what they want” (Pakhomou, 2004, p. 221).
That’s what happens to Adnan Syed. Adnan was convicted of the murder of Hae Min Lee 6 weeks after she went missing.

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.
Shortly after researching the case, Hae’s ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, was accused, and convicted of the murder. Adnan was convicted because of one man’s story and one phone call from a phone log. Although this evidence could have been enough in another case, it proved nothing. Adnan is
This caused the consequences for the five officers much worse than what they would have been. Because Earl died, Payton(34), Thomas(38), Brian(31), Paul(31), and Andrew(31) will all face a 10 year sentence for covering up the incident (Boyd). In other cases many other officers were convicted and sentenced to hard time and parole for deprivation and with falsifying reports and lying to the FBI (Criminal Section Selected Case Summaries). This goes to show that the police can not be fully trusted during investigation because even they will go against the law to get a confession or information out of
