Marauders and Commuters [electronic resource]

EMC Consulting PTY Ltd/ Flame
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
In the world of criminal investigation, a marauder is a serial predator who works from a centrally placed home base. A commuter, on the other hand, is one who travels to a locale in search of victims. What happens when commuting and marauding are combined? In this program, Professor David Canter compares and contrasts two commuter-marauders who perpetrated homicidal assaults on women: Frenchman Jacques Plumain (the Phantom), who marauded in Strasbourg, crossed the border into the German town of Kehl, and marauded some more, and Birmingham resident Adrian Babb, who crossed a highway into a different Birmingham neighborhood to commit his crimes.
