Incredibly informative....
31 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Anyone interested in true crime MUST see this series. It is normally on the ID channel (formerly Court TV) on Thursday evenings 10 P.M. EST.

Dr. Michael Stone and other physicians analyze what makes criminals and murderers do and think the way they do. CT scans, PET scans, and other medical research is also conducted. It is fascinating, in some instances, no biological reason is found, whereas in others (for example the 1969 Texas Tower killer, Charles Whitman, was found to actually have a brain tumor). One memorable quote from eminent psychiatrist Dr. Park S. Dietz states that people with pathology live life as THEY see it, not how it is. It truly is like a trip through the mind of the serial killer.

If you are interested in these facts, you may also be interested in the book "The Serial Killer Files" by NY professor and criminologist Harold Schecter. He delves into case studies in detail, from the middle ages, to today. Fasciniating subject matter. 9/10.
