Episode 5: Criminal Profiling - Wrestlin' with Ressler

Informal criminal profiling can be traced as far back as the Middle Ages when inquisitors attempted profiling heretics. It has been officially traced to the 1880s during the Jack the Ripper case. Profiling is described as a method of suspect identification, which seeks to identify a person’s mental, emotional, and personality characteristics based on things done or left at the crime scene, or “Behavior reflects personality.” We cover: HistoryDevelopmentProcessUse in the BTK CaseJoin us on our website https://www.truecrimelabpod.com/ Connect with us on Social Media! - Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/truecrimelabpod/ - Twitter: https://twitter.com/thetclpodcast - Gmail: truecrimelabpod@gmail.comSources: (nd).

Episode 6 - Marlen Ochoa-Lopez

Stay tuned until the very end for True Crime Lab's very first criminal parody. A parody so funny ... it's criminal.When Facebook launched their pages and groups function, it was also meant to bring people with something in common together. In the case of Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, a 19-year-old pregnant with her second child, a Facebook group called Help a Sister Out was her saving grace. Clarisa Figueroa, a mom offering baby clothes to Marlen, was her saving grace. That blessing would turn into a nightmare. It would become a nightmare for Marlen, her baby, her boyfriend, and her family and friends. This is the case of the murder of Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, a 19-year-old mother who’s time was cut short in a vicious and brutal manner.

Episode 3: Charles Albright - Albright, Albright, Albright

Throughout his life, Charles Albright has been described by many as a portrait of happiness. He was known as untroubled and as someone who troubled no one. He was fluent in French and Spanish, a talented artist, and he was able to attract women with his playing of Chopin on the piano, or his knowledge of Keats. The bottom line? It was impossible for the community to believe he could have viciously murdered three Dallas sex workers in late-1990 and early-1991.Dive in with Jay and Rudeboy as we cover the case of The Eyeball Killer. Join us on our website https://www.truecrimelabpod.com/Connect with us on Social Media!Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/truecrimelabpod/Twitter: https://twitter.com/thetclpodcastGmail: truecrimelabpod@gmail.comSources for this episode: See No Evil - https://www.texasmonthly.com/articles/see-no-evil-3/Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_AlbrightRadford Department of Psychology - http://maamodt.asp.radford.edu/Psyc%20405/serial%20killers/Albright,%20Charles.htm--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app· Serial Killing: A Podcast: Serial Killing: A Podcast explores the motives behind serial killers and murders. https://open.spotify.com/show/10rYT5z4qY1CTFrQLIlKST?si=AeEMh2nfQIGxhGMdmrHRFASupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/truecrimelab/support
