Criminal Profilers Investigate Murderous Minds

To catch a killer, it can take a lot more than just dusting for fingerprints. Criminal profilers use psychological clues to figure out what motivates a murderer and anticipate the killer's next move. Author Malcolm Gladwell and former F.B.I. agent John Douglas explain how profilers get inside criminal minds.


Malcolm Gladwell, staff writer at The New Yorker and author of the article "Dangerous Minds: Criminal Profiling Made Easy"; also author of the books The Tipping Point and Blink

John Douglas, former FBI agent and one of the first criminal profilers; author of Mindhunter and Inside the Mind of BTK
