Episode 023: Mutilation, Part 2on April 1, 2011 in Podcast Episodes, Serial Killers, Victimology by Brian Combs
Last week, we began exploring a question from Lalith about why serial killers mutilate their victims in different ways. We looked at a couple of psychological motivations, as well as mutilation for forensic countermeasures and trophy hunting.
This week, we continue (and conclude) this exploration. First up, cannibalism.
