UNMASKING A MURDERER EPISODES

Welcome to UNMASKING A MURDERER, a show about true crimes and the psychology behind them.

 

I am a forensic and clinical psychologist, a private investigator, and a true-crime writer and have been interested in the dark side of human nature ever since I read Helter-skelter, at age 14.

 

The motive of my show is to help you understand what happened, how it happened, and how it can be prevented.

 

I hope to share my experience in prisons, jails, and forensic hospitals as well as the forensic psychology research, to talk about compelling criminal cases.
