The intent of this paper is to explore serial murderers have been increasing over the years in the United States and across the country. I will discuss the mitigating issues of project designing an interview for violent offenders. I will compare murders in the United States to another country. I will analyze and describe Cohen and Felson’s activity theory, which provides a real-world example of a situation that can be used as a foundation to prevent crime.
I will discuss some of the perception and reality inconsistencies with serial numbers. I will conclude by discussing victim and offender relationships in violent crime that results in death of the victim that may help identify perpetrators, and the historical problems with interviewing violent offenders for research.
