Literature Review

After reading the required chapter and articles this week, you should have an understanding of the theories of criminal behavior and how biases and assumptions influence our assessment of individuals. These assumptions may have an impact in psychology profiling utilized in police investigations as well as stress induced and cultural–based behavior patterns that may be specific to certain segments of the population. As a foundation for your assignments in Weeks One through Five and your Final Research Paper review the Infamous Serial Killers (Links to an external site.)website and select from one of the following case:

Richard Ramirez (1960–2013) murdered 25 victims over a 13–year period in California

Jeffrey Dahmer (1960–1994) kidnapped, killed, and dismembered his victims in Milwaukee

Ted Bundy (1946–1989) committed murders from Washington state to Florida

David Berkowitz (1953– ) the Son of Sam killer who murdered six people in New York City

Peter Kurten (1883–1931) the Dusseldorf Vampire who murdered nine people in Germany

Joel Rifkin (1959– ) murdered 17 women in the 1990s

Charles Manson (1934– ) orchestrated the Manson Family spree killings in Los Angeles

You may also select a case you have identified, with instructor consent. Avoid using a suspect who committed suicide, was killed prior to any criminal charges filed, or in another way was not subject to the criminal justice system.

Reference the Ashford Writing’s Center sample literature review (Links to an external site.) and guidelines.

In your literature review

Identify the criminal case you have selected for your Final Research Paper.

Due to the nature of the assignments, your original search may include reliable sources, including reliable media, to enable you to identify areas for further scholarly research. For example, numerous scholarly publications, including Aggression and Violent Behaviorand Crime and Delinquency have published reports indicating that Ted Bundy suffered from narcissistic personality disorder. The scholarly source would then focus on the personality disorders diagnosis.
