The fact is that most offenders do not travel very far to commit their crimes, says Professor David Canter. "Like you and me, their home is where their heart lies." In this program, Canter makes his point through the case of British TV personality Jill Dando, who was murdered on her doorstep by a man who lived just a few streets away; the Railway Rapists, a pair of men who raped and, in two cases, murdered their way up and down a rail line that passed by perpetrator John Duffy's dwelling; and Jack the Ripper, who terrorized London's East End and probably resided there. A look at the Soho cholera epidemic of 1854, which was brought under control through the geographical mapping of Dr. John Snow, is also included.
