Page under development

Important to solving these murders is the timeline below

The preperator visits the Jennings area occasionally either for work, to visit a family, or to see his girlfriend. This finding is reflected in the timeline death chart located be;pw. Clearly, this finding is supported by the fact that the killer visits the area and abducts his victims predominatly on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Sundays. It is the opioion of this examiner, based on previous dates of the abductions/murders, that the killer does not live in Jenning, LA. The time line also may indicate that the killer has a job route that takes him to Jennings several times a year. Determing who visits Jennings on the specific days the victims were abducted can play an important role in solving these murders. It is also important to point out that all the dates except one are in the spring or summer months. This may futher suggest seasonal work.

Outline of behavioral characteristics of an offender who would commit such murders. This is not a profile of a particular individual. This was submitted to Sheriff Edwards in 2008. Caveat: This report should not be considered a full or complete report. This report was developed after the 6th murder - Sept. 2008.

In this examiner’s opinion the preperator visits the Jennings area occasionally either for work, to visit a family, or to see his girlfriend. This finding is reflected in the timeline death chart. It is the opioion of this examiner, based on previous dates of the murders, that the killer will murder again soon. OFFENDER BEHAVIORAL PROFILE The purpose of this report is to outline the behavioral characteristics of an offender who would commit such murders. This is not a profile of a particular individual. There is one killer responsible for the five murders that comprise this report. The offender is classified as an affective/vehicle serial killer. Affective defines the level of aggression used during the crimes, while vehicle describes the way in which the killer views/treats his victims. In this examiner’s opinion the offender is unable to control his aggression resulting in sudden blitz attacks on the victims. Consequently, victims are used by the killer as a vehicle to act out his rage and anger on.


§ Sex - Male
§ Age - 28 - 34
§ Ethnicity – White (tan skin)
§ Employment - unskilled - (for example, truck driver, marine activities)
§ Education - High School Drop Out
§ Marriage Status - Single but Divorce
§ No military service


ARREST RECORD

The killer will have past convictions of burglary, DWI convictions, and drug convictions. These past criminal convictions do not reflect the complete criminal record of this killer. In the examiner’s opinion the killer will most likely have committed rapes and murders that have gone undetected for which no arrests have been made. The offender will continue to kill until arrested.


AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR


In the examiner’s opinion the killer has an explosive personality one who is impulsive, quick tempered and self centered. His social relationships are superficial and limited to drinking buddies and visiting prostitutes. In the examiner’s opinion the killer has conflicts over his relationships with women, he often feels dependent and aggressively resistant to them. While the killer is contested by women he uses various forms of aggression to get even and degrade them. Sexually, he is frustrated and may feel impotent. He links anger with sexual competence. In the opinion of this examiner, the murders were committed in a stylized violent outburst for the purposes of retaliation, or getting even and revenge on women. His victims were used as a vehicle to be exploited. The crimes are unplanned. The mildest reaction from the victim can lead to the murder. The crimes are emotional due to anger and often results in non-completed sexual acts. Although the killer is in an emotional state during and after the murders he is somewhat forensically aware. For example, it is likely that the victims dumped in the water were placed there to get rid of physical evidence. The killer is also growing more confident, which is reflected by him leaving a victim in plain view on an isolated dirt road. In this examiner’s opinion a local person would not dump a victim in areas near his home comfort zone. This would draw unnecessary attention to his area.

SHORT TERM INVESTIGATIVE CONSIDERATIONS

Detectives should interview people from companies located in or near the geographical profile predicted area. Inquires should be made to determine what type of service supplies or services would require a person to visit their company at least twice a month but only once a year. Using this acquired information investigators should obtain the names of the persons making the visits to determine if they were in Jennings on the dates any of the murders. Detectives should interview people from the marine industry in Jennings to determine if any of their workers have an association to the geographical profile predicted area. Determine who makes periodically trips out on boats then back to Jennings. Do any of these individuals use the services of prostitutes? Determine who has made these trips during the specific dates as shown in the chart above. It is unlikely that a local man who rarely leaves Jennings would have gaps between his killings as demonstrated in these murders.
