Personal Quote:

[on interviewing criminals:] I'd let the guy talk, let him project the blame onto someone else, even the victims. Then I'd challenge him. I'd say, 'I know your case. I looked at the crime-scene photos. You cannibalized that woman.' What they like is when you tell them about themselves. Then they open up. [October 1997] See more »
