The FBI agents will not ask allof the questions on the list below, but as the criminal profiler, youmust still find the answers to these questions.

You will write a paper including your first impressions of thesuspect. In this paper, be sure to answer the questions above, and thenprovide answers to five additional questions that are relevant to thesuspect. You must make connections and collaborate to obtain and verifythe information that you have been given. For example, if Ima Killer,the interviewee, states she was born in Boston, you will need to verifythat information. Once “verified” you can include in your report thatyou verified with Mass General Hospital that the individual was bornthere. The goal of this part of the assignment is to demonstrate thatyou are putting all the pieces together and making educated guesses asyou explore possible suspects. The educated guesses should be derivedfrom theory, so review some of the previous weeks’ theory or researchnew theories and connect them within your paper. Make at least twoscholarly connections to your suspect, the victim, or the crime scene.Each piece of the assignment, starting with analyzing the crime sceneleads us to this important interview. If you are looking for a serialarsonist and notice he or she happens to smoke the same brand ofcigarette found at the past three crime scenes, you have a lead. Not adefinitive lead, but a strong lead that can be corroborated.
