Significant Event

This is where you would put other things that were going on at the time. Make sure you indicate the dates!!

Details of the Crime

Be specific in your details. This may be a good place to have pictures...

Victims

Give details about victims. Some killers choose their victims for a specific characteristic they have, such as the way they wear their hair. If your person has a large number of victims, you can list them. This is another good place for pictures...

Evidence

What evidence was there to point investigators to this person? Did the person confess? Was there particular forensic evidence? Serial killers often have a "signature" where they do a specific thing to each victim. For example, the Boston Strangler choked his victims to death and then tied pantyhose into a large bow around each victim's neck. Did your person do anything like this? If so, include it here. Again, this is another prime spot for pictures...

  • Was there a trial? If so, what was the outcome and the sentence?
  • Did the person commit suicide before his/her arrest?
  • Was the person killed by the police?

Whereabouts

  • Is this person still alive? Where is he/she?
  • Is this person dead? When and how did he/she die?
