    • Answer to Question h. • Serial Killers difficult to spot because they are masters of deception. • They have no compassion for human life and therefore observe what makes humans comfortable and lull them into a false sense of security only to gain their victims trust then they attack when their victim least suspects it.
    • Answers to Question i. and j. • I.) Organized crimes scenes, disorganized crime scenes, mixed crime scene, and atypical crime scene • J.) The most surprising pieces of information I learned doing this project was that Manson never murdered anyone. He brainwashed his family to do his dirty work. Also I learned that Manson worked with Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys and they actually wrote songs together.
