One evening a couple were watching tv when they heard a knock on their front door. On the doorstep was a shivering 10-year-old girl wearing only a t-shirt. She had been snatched from outside a community centre in town and raped. The following summer there were eight further rapes of girls and women around the M25, London’s orbital motorway, that police believed were committed by the same man. This film, talking to the leading profiler on the case, explains and illustrates the part played by geographical profiling in the arrest and conviction of the offender.
Please Note: Although this is a stand alone film, it can be used as an example of application to complement the film "Introducing Geographical Offender Profiling".
