DeSales Forensic Forum, Wed., Feb. 7, to Feature Talk by National Crime Scene Expert With FBI
Supervisory Special Agent Mary O'Toole, a senior member of the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the Critical Incident Response Group at the FBI, will speak on her experiences working with and studying dangerous criminals at 7 p.m., Wednesday, February 7, in the Harry C. Trexler Room of the DeSales University Center at DeSales. The presentation by O'Toole also will include a PowerPoint presentation. The program is open to the public free of charge. (PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature and subject matter of the program, children 16 and under should not attend.)
As one of the most senior members of the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit, O'Toole has worked both nationally and internationally with law enforcement organizations. She specializes in the analysis of criminals and crime scene behavior, and more recently, serial killers and psychopathy. She has educated law enforcement officers, judges, psychologists, crime analysts, and other professionals in the areas of crime scene analysis, criminal behavior and abnormal psychology.
A published author, O'Toole has been involved with research for several books, including "The School Shooter - A Threat Assessment Perspective," and "In Search of a Kidnapper - Through the Eyes of a Child," a synopsis of high profile child abductions in California.
The DeSales Forensic Forum, co-sponsored by the criminal justice and psychology departments at DeSales University, has been an ongoing community educational resource since 2001. Prominent scientists established the forum to provide students with exposure to diverse areas of forensics. It has featured speakers of international renown, such as forensic artist Frank Bender, former FBI profiler Gregg McCary, law professor James E. Stars, and forensic anthropologist Dr. Tom Crist.
