    3. Deputy Marshal Samuel Gerard: Alright, listen up, people. Our fugitive has been on the run for ninety minutes. Average foot speed over uneven ground barring injuries is 4 miles-per-hour. That gives us a radius of six miles. What I want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up at fifteen miles. Your fugitive's name is Dr. Richard Kimble. Go get him. ..... From the movie "The Fugitive"

    6. The victim is anonymous. No one came forward to identify her body and she was buried in a grave marked "Jane Doe," another victim of an unsolved crime forgotten by most. Yet she had a life; she had a future that was brutally taken from her and as so many others like her, she deserves to be remembered, not for her death, but for her life.

    Murder in the murderer is no such ruinous thought as poets and romancers will have it; it does not unsettle him, or fright him from his ordinary notice of trifles; it is an act quite easy to be contemplated.

    2. Gearen, a legal secretary, and her 2-year-old daughter, Kyra, were staying with friends at a beach house on Crystal Beach on July 14 when Gearen walked outside a little more than a minute ahead of her friends at 11:56 p.m., Tuttoilmondo said. The friends heard a gate at the top of the stairs close and she was gone by the time they reached the bottom of the steps. "It happened in a minute and a half," Tuttoilmondo said. "She just vanished from this earth." Campers discovered Gearen's body in the surf about 6:30 a.m. The autopsy showed she had been raped, beaten and strangled, but investigators believe she put up a fight, said sheriff's Lt. Tommy Hansen, the lead investigator. TIPS: bridgettegearen2008@gmail .com

    6. He passed what he thought was a yellow truck. Then he heard Hammond scream again. "When she screamed at me out the window," he said, "I put it in reverse and started chasing him. " Shafer chased the truck about a mile, he said, racing south on Clinton's 2nd Street, then turning west on Culvert Drive. But his car's transmission failed, Shafer said, and the pickup - maybe a 1969 or 1970 Ford - sped away. The truck may have had a decal of a water scene on the back window. Hammond has not been seen since. Police found her car in the parking lot that night, said Clinton Detective Damon Parsons.

    6. The basic idea of a criminal profile was to acquire a body of information that revealed a common pattern for a general description of an UNSUB (unknown subject) in terms of habit, possible employment, martial status, mental state, and personality traits. Probing for an experiential assessment of a criminal from a series of crime scenes involved a detailed victimology — learning significant facts about the victim's life, especially in the days and hours leading up to his or her death. Their movements were mapped and investigators study all of their personal communications for signals to where they may have crossed paths with a viable suspect..........Hazelwood viewed sex offenders as either impulsive or ritualistic. Impulsive offenders were opportunistic and generally of lower intelligence and economic means, and their sexual behavior often served power or anger needs. Ritualistic offenders, on the other hand, indulged in paraphilias and compulsive behaviors that satisfied a specific psychological need. As they centered their lives around this activity, they learned to lie and manipulate in order to keep it hidden from others and secretly active ....FROM CRIMELIBRARY

    3. The distinction between MO and signature, is in the intent. Actions considered consistent with MO can be linked to one of three intended purposes; 1) to ensure the offender's success in committing the crime; 2) to obscure or otherwise protect the offender from being readily identified or; 3) to facilitate or effect the offender's escape. Actions discovered during an investigation which fall into one or more of these categories can be ascribed as MO.
