Former FBI Agent to Address Weber State

OGDEN, Utah – For those who love murder mystery novels or CBS's "CSI: Crime Scene Investigations," Weber State University will host criminal profiler Robert Ressler Oct. 27 at noon in the Shepherd Union Ballroom.

Ressler, who coined the term "serial killer," will speak concerning his career experiences. He served 20 years in the FBI, interviewing some of the most notorious serial killers in order to develop techniques and profiles to help law enforcement officers nab future sociopaths. Since retiring from the bureau in 1990, he has worked as director of Forensic Behavioral Services – a consulting organization for hostage negotiations, threat assessment, crime scene assessment and criminal personality profiling. Ressler has co-authored five books, including the best-seller "Whoever Fights Monsters." He has also written numerous articles for criminal justice journals.

The former FBI agent will speak as part of the Convocations series at WSU. The event is open to the public free of charge.
