Criminal Justice Quote: Opening a Serial Murder Case

A serial murder investigation is generally initiated by an agency or group of agencies following the identification of a series of related homicides….A serial murder investigation may be initiated as an extension of a current homicide investigation when a second unsolved murder or series of unsolved murders are linked to the original case. This linkage may be similarities in victims, crime scenes, attacks, geography, or any number of actions or situations which convince investigators that the homicides have been committed by a common killer.

Steven A. Egger, The Killers Among Us, 1998
