Summary
In the 21st century, "we are all becoming visible...in that other, parallel world of electronic records, databases, video films, and computer memories," says Professor David Canter. "Criminals who would've been hidden in the past are also becoming visible in this virtual world-provided we know how to look for them." In this program, Canter addresses the use of data mining to track the virtual and real-world movements of criminals. Case studies include the following: Simon Wadland of Northamptonshire, who, using only his telephone, terrified 11 women into mutilating themselves and was snared by his phone records; Londoner Edgar Pearce (the Mardi Gra Bomber), a terroristic extortionist who was tripped up through a sting involving a huge surveillance campaign; and Gary Ridgway (the Green River Killer)-convicted of murdering 49 women and girls in Washington State-who was apprehended with assistance from the HITS crime database.
