Episode 204: Mark Safarik - Spree Killers, Behavioral Analysis

FBI Retired Case File Review

Retired agent Mark Safarik served in the FBI for 23 years. He spent the last half of his career as a member of the elite Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) where he established himself as an internationally recognized expert in the analysis and interpretation of violent criminal behavior. In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, Mark Safarik discusses his analytical work on spree killings and the differences between spree, serial, and mass killings. He also talks about his time as a profiler in the BAU, his membership in the Vidocq Society, and the popularity of true crime TV shows, podcasts, and books. Mark’s new book, with co-author Katherine Ramsland, Spree Killers: Practical Classifications for Law Enforcement and Criminology has been hailed as the definitive textbook on this type of multicide. Spree killers are responsible for killing at least three persons at two or more locations due to a precipitating incident that fuels the urge to kill.

MARK SAFARIK -SPREE KILLERS CLASSIFICATIONS

House of Mystery Radio/Inside Writing

Practical Classifications for Law Enforcement and Criminologyis the only exhaustive, up-to-date analytical book on spree killers, standing apart from those dedicated to mass murderers and serial killers.Multicides have traditionally been categorized as double, triple, mass, serial and spree—while, mass and serial have been further divided into subcategories. Spree killing, which involves the killing of at least three persons at two or more locations due to a precipitating incident that fuels the urge to kill, remains a poorly defined concept. In the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) eliminated this term from its multicide nomenclature in 2005, but the authors examination of 359 cases involving 419 spree killers from 43 countries shows that not only is there enough diversity among spree killers to form classifications—similar to those devised for mass and serial—but also that subtypes offer distinct utility for identification, tracking, and warning potential targets.Spree Killers outline the designation of spree killer specifically and thoroughly. In addition to looking at existing literature, specific cases, and the behavioral patterns, it offers a fully worked up profile for the typology. The behaviors and motives for spree killers align in six categories, which are detailed in full. The book provides unique insight for police, forensic, and investigative personnel into what to look for to respond to, and—in some cases identify and stopping—certain types of spree killings.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/houseofmysteryradio.
