Abstract: While serial rape is a common theme in television crime dramas and in the popular media, few researchers have attempted to understand its nature, frequency, and distribution across time and space. In fact, almost everything that is known about serial rape was generated by researchers generalizing from small, cross-sectional, captive samples. Hazelwood and Warren’s (1990) classic essay on the behavior of the serial rapist, for example, was based on a sample of 41 convicted offenders. Furthermore, past scholars have drawn almost exclusively from Hazelwood and Warren’s style typology to summarize offender attack styles. We draw from serial rape newspaper accounts published between 1940 and 2010 to investigate the social distribution of attack styles. Our analysis developed a new category of attack—drugging—to extend Hazelwood and Warren’s original typology. Drugging involves the offender relying on a medication, sedative, or street drug to subdue the victim and render her vulnerable to sexual coercion. We identify and interpret the social structural correlates and victim counts associated with this attack style.

Abstract: The utility of a neurocriminological approach superimposing biological, psychological, and psychosocial developmental timelines has previously been demonstrated in the case of serial murderer Jeffrey Dahmer. Nonetheless, previous work using this novel approach is limited by the necessary use of published material—given that Dahmer is deceased. This study is the first to use an established paradigm to acquire meaningful and relevant data directly from an incarcerated serial killer, for the purpose of producing more accurate and comprehensive developmental timelines. The participant is an adult male convicted of eight homicides, currently serving multiple life sentences at a state prison in the western U.S. The participant was administered structured clinical interviews and self-report questionnaires as part of a larger neurocriminological testing protocol. He provided over 100 pages of hand-written material by mail, and participated in several telephone interviews and a testing session at the prison with the second author. Over 100 preliminary data points were coded chronologically into biological, psychological, and psychosocial, and homicide event timelines. Results indicated a developmental sequence of markers for biopsychosocial impairments which differed relative to homicide events from those in Dahmer’s case. Implications of these factors on the etiology of this individual’s homicidal behaviors are discussed, along with the methodological merits of this approach.

Abstract: Research shows that serial sexual murderers differ from non-serial sexual murderers on a variety of factors. Yet, little is known about the differences between serial and non-serial sex offenders. Using a sample of 616 male sex offenders, we examine the differences and similarities between serial and non-serial sex offenders on developmental, personality, and criminal career variables. Findings from bivariate and logistic regression analyses indicate significant differences between serial and non-serial sex offenders in multiple aspects. Findings and implications for future research are discussed.

Abstract: While news media, law enforcement, and other special interest groups have traditionally spent large amounts of time and money focusing on the crime of serial murder, there is a distinct lack of resources utilized in catching offenders of a much more prominent crime: serial rape. With multiple studies demonstrating that serial rapists have, on average, between seven and eleven victims and low reporting rates, spending the time and resources on solving these cases is crucial. The current study aims to provide evidence for creating a policy that would test all existing backlogged rape kits to help close previously unsolved cases.

Abstract: Serial homicide killings are a crime that captures the public’s fascination and which receive a disproportionate amount of media coverage. Detailed information on serial killers and their victims is now widespread due to the rise of the internet age of information. Further, the ability of people to get news on a global basis has begun to change how, when, and where people find their news and allows for an international view of these types of crimes. Despite the availability of accounts of serial killings, little research has yet to examine how media reports on these crimes differ when considering intersections of gender, culture, and relevant offender and victim characteristics. Recent studies such as Taylor et al. (2012) have explored the validity of serial killer classifications and typologies using a combination of case histories and news stories. Building upon this work and others, the present study explores online media accounts and gathers information from other scholarly sources to provide a comprehensive assessment of serial killings in the United States and abroad. Variables of interest include geographical location, incident-based data, victim and offender data, serial killer typologies, system processing data, post disposition data, and data pertaining to motives for the homicides.
