In an interview by Candace Braun with Dr. Katherine Ramsland, assistant professor of forensic psychology at DeSales and an expert on serial killers, Ramsland offers insight on why it is almost impossible to identify a serial killer. "One of the reasons we don't spot them is because we believe media myths," said Ramsland. Her latest book, The Human Predator: A Historical Chronicle of Serial Murder and Forensic Investigation, due out in October, describes the entire history of serial killers since ancient Rome. According to Ramsland, the real cases are better than what you see in fiction because in most cases, screenwriters don't do their research, or make composites of serial killers, rather than singling one out.
