Marvin Wolfgang: Scientist or king?  This is an examination of one of the leaders of homicide research, a test of his theory that blacks have more "pro-violence" values than whites.

By Barrie J. Ritter, Ph.D. (c) 2013. Abstract: Unlike most crimes, serial murders were first empirically studied within the lifetimes of (at least) senior researchers. This topic, which is variously called the time spans or escalation in serial murder, was one of the author’s earliest findings. It was referred to as “sequential progression.” The exploratory research was undertaken for the L.A.P.D. Hillside Strangler Task Force. The next article discusses the dynamics of sequential…

Serial killer investigations (Part 21). There are two topics of interest in this article on the investigation of serial murder: One is that serial killers have long known how to elude police; specific murderers are cited to provide examples of this knowledge. The second is a major finding of the Ritter (1988) study of multiple murderers and their investigation. Namely, it is more often the multiple murderer who dictates the way an investigation proceeds than the police. by Barrie Ritter (c)…

By Barrie J. Ritter, Ph.D. (c) 2013. Intellectual thievery in the field of serial murder. (Photo by Jeff J Mitchell/Getty Images). Plagiarism in the field of serial murder is pervasive, according to the editors of an international collection of articles on the subject. Everyone claims to have been the first to have come up with most of the field's major ideas. But when you examine the ideas and those who claim them, few have done any research. So where did the ideas come from?

The dynamics of sequential progression in serial murders. May 4, 2013. By Barrie J. Ritter, Ph.D. (c) 2013. To repeat the question asked in the last article: How can we distinguish a pattern based on compulsion from one based on desire for fame? Here is the answer:  If we use the actual dates of the murders or discovery, we find that the Hillside Strangler(s) ramped up the body count in November, as well as the “overkill,” to 4 victims within 3 days, with 2 suffering from increased…

THE STUDY OF MURDER TO HELP POLICE. Of all crimes, murder has always had the highest solution (or “clearance”) rate. In 1960, the FBI reported (Uniform Crime Reports) that murder had a 92.3 percent clearance rate. Eighty percent of all 1960 murders were characterized as “crimes of passion” by the FBI. Between 70 and 80 percent of murder victims that year were killed by relatives, friends or acquaintances. (C) Barrie J. Ritter 2012
