Note: Finally, some decent journalism holding profilers accountable for their bogus statements to the press. With the arrest of Lucas John Helder, Van Zandt's profile is shown to be off on key points. Gregg O. McCrary steps in to defend Van Zandt's inaccurate profile, saying that anyone who claims to be 100% right all the time must be "smoking cigarettes without labels." We are reminded of McCrary's testimony in the Sheppard case where he states that he's "never been wrong yet." (see: McKnight, K., "Expert's Opinion Challenged," Ohio Beacon Journal, April 1, 2000)

"TV Show to Identify Alleged
County News Digest, February 13, 2001
Note: Pat Brown is a former student of mine who approached me years ago, after taking several courses, to get my assistance in naming a person that she was essentially stalking as a serial murderer. No evidence. No proof. Just her firm belief that she knew better than anyone else. I of course refused, told her to stop stalking the guy lest she find herself arrested, and this did not make her happy at all. Ignoring admonishments regarding this and other terribly unprofessional conduct, she continues to go her own way in her corner of the profiling community.
What is being done in this case is a similar farce. Apparently this person views profiling as somehow related to determining guilt and innocence, and sees it as her duty to harass local authorities and harass potentially innocent folk via the media when they don't see things her way. And she only takes on a case for a victim's family after she has done an investigation into their guilt or innocence? Very confusing. I always thought that the investigation came after you were provided with case information, not before. As most families do not have access to the investigative files in a case, I can see how this entanglement was likely avoided.
All in all, highly unethical conduct for a criminal profiler, let alone a forensic professional of any kind, in my view.
Kind of reminds me of....

J. "Retired cop fits profile," Ottowa Sun,
January 21, 2001
Note: The activity that is described in the article is actually threat assessment, not profiling. Note that his client list does not include law enforcement agencies, which I found an interesting omission. Subsequently, this reads pretty much like a press release intended to attract corporate clients. Not that there is anything wrong with this, only that there is no news provided and one begins to wonder why this was published in the newspaper. I question the journalism here, or rather the lack of it.
|Robert Ressler||Escaped TX prisoners||Kolker, C.

December 29, 2000
Note: I am confused as to why a profiler would be required by investigators in this case, other than to come in and state the obvious (the group has a strong leader, he seems to know what he is doing, etc...). Sounds to me like the investigators in this case would be better off talking to the Correction Officers in the prison or the detectives who originally worked the burglary cases referred to. That and reviewing available correspondence and taped phone calls relating to the escaped prisoners (phone calls made from prisons, as well as prison visits, are for the most part recorded in many states).
|Mary Ellen O'Toole||Columbine; School shootings||Kass, J.
"School shooters tip hands," Denver Rocky Mountain
News, October 28, 2000
Note: I think it is interesting that one of the FBI's findings is that "school shooters" all tend to have access to guns. I'm not sure that a government funded study is needed to discover this. Perhaps I am mistaken.
Furthermore, I am curious as to how the FBI was able to determine the common lack of empathy (a very subjective psychological determination) among "school shooters", as this is best done with a clinical interview. Many of the "school shooters" died during the incidents, and subsequently cannot be subjected to personality testing or clinical interviews. I also wonder seriously how any of the findings of the study are actually relevant to the investigation or even prevention of school shootings.

"FBI profilers help police narrow
list of suspects down to one," Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
September 28, 2000
Note: It needs to be noted that the body in this case was found on Monday, and the suspect, whose problematic statement is the only evidence in the case, was being interviewed by Pittsburgh PD on Tuesday (for one--- it is curious how a homeless guy was up on obscure crime elsewhere in the country and in Germany-- guess he keeps up with the news and has a TV or something-- homeless people in Pittsburgh must be different than those in the rest of the country -- couldn't be that the FBI let that info slip, I'm sure). The FBI profilers and their computer program, Rapid Start, were still on the plane to Pittsburgh on Tuesday. The profile came after the suspect was detained, and after the FBI interview with the suspect.
I did a media interview with the FBI's Pittsburgh Profile Coordinator, Dennis Lormel, who claimed, just before I joined in, that this was a success story for the FBI's profiling unit and Rapid Start--- which the press is promoting it as for some reason. When I pointed out on air that the suspect (who is not by any means even a good suspect) was basically found and in custody before the FBI profilers were even on scene, he began to back-peddle furiously.
There was a lot more to that interview which was both amusing and disappointing, like the FBI profiler coordinator claiming a 100% success rate with profiling and with Rapid Start. I mentioned Richard Jewell, the West Memphis case, and other FBI profiling blunders that apparently he was not aware of. I could go on, but I won't. The experience was nothing short of appalling.
This kind of blatant misrepresentation of fact by those within the FBI should not be tolerated, and is a slap in the face to the hard work of the actual investigators in charge of this case, who work for the Pittsburgh Police Department and have jurisdiction over all crimes of this nature (sex crimes and homicides).

"Unraveling Palo Alto homicide," San Jose Mercury News, Friday, May 19, 2000
Note: Not mentioned in the article is that Luminol is a presumptive test for blood, not a confirmatory test , which is why it is inadmissible as evidence in court. Also note that, contrary to testimony of her mentor Mike Prodan, Pagaling is apparently under the impression that she is a forensic scientist, qualified to perform blood pattern analysis and wound pattern analysis. She admits, however, that she and her team (which I believe is no more than two people) do not usually visit crime scenes. I would regard this as an oversight.
