Long Island Ripper Profile Report Organized Offender 3/13/2013 Dear Detective Jones, Thank you for allowing me the opportunity in reviewing the case of The Long Island Ripper. You have supplied me with a number of reports, including the crime scene photographs and locations.
According to my knowledge that I have gained in reviewing the Long Island Ripper case, I have supplied the following information. In my impression on the suspect that may be valuable to you in solving the case, please see the following details. AGE: I believe the suspect is in his mid thirties. Most serial killers are between the ages of 25 and 35. SEX/RACE: I believe the suspect is a white male. Serial killers are often white males. INTELLIGENCE: I believe the suspect is an organized killer of very high intelligence.The suspect doesn’t leave any evidence behind.
EDUCATION: I believe the suspect has a high degree of education in the criminal justice field. The suspect is very knowledgeable of law enforcement techniques which help him in covering up his moves every step of the way. FAMILY/MARITUAL STATUS: I believe the suspect has never been married and has no kids. I believe the suspect has gone through a traumatic experience during childhood. Most serial killers have had a troubled life at some point that triggered these acts.RESIDENCE/LIVING ARRANGEMENTS: I believe the suspect is a Long Island Resident or formal resident because he is very familiar with Long Island. I also believe the suspect lives alone. Serial killers usually aren’t people you know.
VEHICLE TYPE AND CONDITION: I believe the suspect drives a van that blends in and doesn’t stand out. Most serial killers capture their victims by pulling them into their vans. EMPLOYMENT/OCCUPATION: I believe the suspect works or have worked for the Long Island Police Department. The suspect has too much knowledge of this particular field.
Respectfully submitted, Rebecca Brehm
