Digital Project Draft: Tracing the Tracks of Serial Killers

Here is a draft of my map of some the most infamous U.S. serial killers. Mainly using newspaper clips from each assault, I’ve been able to track where each killer was and when.

The few difficulties that I have run into, however, include having trouble finding images for a few of the victims, as well as having differing amounts of information on each crimes. However, I think this map does a good job of demonstrating the flaws of geographic profiling.

What remains to be done:

  • Place the page on a wordpress site. This would both support the map, as well as provide some definitions and analysis of geographic profiling.
  • If possible, given timing, I’d like to add one more serial killer to the map. I’m currently considering John Wayne Gacy
