John Jay professor of psychology Gabrielle Salfati along with other speakers gave a talk in Binghamton, NY at Binghamton University on sexual homicide and the offenders. Sexual homicide is the most common homicide in the United States and the purpose of this conference was to understand the mind of a sexual homicide offender. The purpose is not only to better understand the patterns and behaviors of these offenders but the hope is also to implement the research gathered from these experts and to distribute it to law enforcement. Salfati believes that law enforcements should work with researchers and psychologists to better understand these offenders and improve their tactics.
