Your assignment is to:

a) write your overall reaction to the case; and

b) develop an in-depth offender profile of the convicted suspect, Cleophus Prince Jr.

Tell me what made him tick and why you suspect he committed the crimes he did.

Note: Remember to take the following into account with your response:

Its unusual to have a black serial killer, let alone one who crosses racial lines to murder white women.

Those who knew Prince well said that he seemed to be obsessed with sex and often bragged about his relationships with white women. Yet, there was no evidence that hed had an altercation with a white woman that might have made him angry enough to kill.

Prince did not fit the psychological profile offered by the FBI when theyd examined the crime scenes.
