Task #1

Video Link -> The Unsolved Murder of JonBenet Ramsey

Supplementary Link -> The JonBenet Ramsey Ransom Note

Today you will be doing a psychological evaluation on the killer involved in this case. I will be having you form into groups of four and answer the following information on a poster paper for presentation. The information each poster must contain is located below.

 

PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION

 

Name:                                     Name of the case

 

Referred by:                           Mr. Tyler

Psychologists:                           Your names

Place of Examination:            Cesar Chavez High School

Date of Examination:             5-9-2017

Date of Report:                        5-10-2017

 

Investigative Techniques:

 

List the methods you used to research and analyze this  killer in order. Feel free to use bullet format in this section.

 

Background Information:

 

Start with several important  facts of the case. Which of the seven key theories do you think explains why this killer murdered? What evidence do you have to support your belief? Do you think the killer served any jail/prison time before? Why? What is your evidence? What job do you think the killer had? Blue collar or white collar? Why?

 

Behavioral Observations:

 

Was the killer organized or disorganized? What evidence do you have to support your belief? Use your organized/disorganized killer chart. What signs of stalking do you think the killer had? In other words, how do you think the killer acted like a stalker? 

 

Cognitive Functioning:

 

What psychiatric (mental) disorders do you think the killer suffered from if any? What evidence do you have to support your belief?

 

Summary:

Briefly summarize the report as a whole.  Some audiences (judges, busy psychiatrists) read only the summary, so you must be succinct, clear, and direct. 

 

Recommendations:  Who specifically should law enforcement be looking for? Be descriptive as possible. What type of job? What type of personality? Make sure to explain your claims.

 

Respectfully submitted,
