How to Get Beyond Loneliness: Larry Yeagley
The typical serial rapist leads a Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde life, undetected by neighbors, co-workers, even family. He may work his way through dozens or even hundreds of victims before he´s caught - assuming he ever is. Who are these men and what makes them tick? A small band of criminologists and psychologists make it their life´s work to find out, devising elaborate psychological profiles of specific rapists. They peruse crime scenes and query victims looking for clues to the rapists´ psyches - conversation, sexual performance, signs indicating they felt remorseful or proud of their crimes. And in their wake, the victims: those left behind to serve a life sentence of loneliness and shame. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Larry A. Brewer.
