in about 50% of the cases a suspect is identified. If and when this happens, he/ she is interviewed and compared to the profile.

evidence is collected from the crime scene including photos, physical evidence, investigator notes and reports of witness interviews.
2. Decision Process Models-
The evidence is organized, studied and analyzed to look for patterns that can link to the crime and the unsub 3. Crime Assessment-
criminal profilers attempt to reconstruct the crime scene and put themselves in the shoes of the killer and they use a timeline of events 4. Criminal Profile-
steps 1-3 are combined to create a criminal profile including the intentions, physical qualities, personaltiy and behavior of the perpetrator. 5. Investigation-
the profile that was just made is given to the investigators that work where the crime happened who are helping with this case. if more leads turn up when investigating more, the profile may be changed to fit the unsub. Six Steps of Criminal Profiling psychology-
