9780124080843: Forensic Victimology, Second Edition: Examining Violent Crime Victims in Investigative and Legal Contexts

Published in 2009, the first edition of Forensic Victimology introduced criminologists and criminal investigators to the idea of systematically gathering and examining victim information for the purposes of addressing investigative and forensic issues. The concepts presented within immediately proved vital to social scientists researching victims-offender relationships; investigators and forensic scientists seeking to reconstruct events and establish the elements of a crime; and criminal profilers seeking to link pattern crimes. This is because the principles and guidelines in Forensic Victimology were written to serve criminal investigation and anticipate courtroom testimony.

As with the first, this second edition of Forensic Victimology is an applied presentation of a traditionally theoretical subject written by criminal justice practitioners with years of experience-both in the field and in the classroom. It distinguishes the investigative and forensic aspects of applied victim study as necessary adjuncts to what has often been considered a theoretical field. It then identifies the benefits of forensic victimology to casework, providing clearly defined methods and those standards of practice necessary for effectively serving the criminal justice system.

  • 30% new content, with new chapters on Emergency Services, False Confessions, and Human Trafficking
  • Use of up-to-date references and case examples to demonstrate the application of forensic victimology
  • Provides context and scope for both the investigative and forensic aspects of case examination and evidence interpretation
  • Approaches the study of victimology from a realistic standpoint, moving away from stereotypes and archetypes
  • Useful for students and professionals working in relation to behavioral science, criminology, criminal justice, forensic science, and criminal investigation

Product Description:

Forensic Victimology is the scientific study of victims for the purposes of addressing investigative and forensic issues. The social scientist researching victim-offender relationships; the investigator going through a victim's garbage or cell phone records; the criminal profiler reading a victim's diary or making a "friends and family" list; the forensic nurse taking a victim history or looking for evidence of injury; the reconstructionist examining a victim's toxicology or making a timeline of activities leading up to their demise; the psychiatrist or psychologist performing a mental health assessment; the medical examiner establishing a victim's place of employment or last meal each collects, examines, and interprets evidence related to forensic victimology. Their work serves criminal investigation and anticipates courtroom testimony.

The 2e of Forensic Victimology continues the applied presentation of a traditionally theoretical subject. It distinguishes the investigative and forensic aspects of applied victim study as a necessary adjunct to what is typically a theoretical field. It then identifies forensic victimologists and provides them with the methods and standards of practice needed to be of service.
