This case examines the murder of Sandra Rozzo in 2003. She was shot 8 times at point blank range by Ashley Humphrey.

She was 20 years old at the time of the shooting and claimed he was abusive and controlling. Timothy was 16 years older than her when they married. Rozzo, Timothy Humphrey’s ex-girlfriend, was due to appear in court to testify against him on battery and sexual assault charges in Florida in 2003. However, she was murdered before she could testify. Although Ashley was the person who shot Sandra, she took a plea deal for a lesser sentence as long as she testified against her husband. Ashley Humphrey was sentenced to 25, while Timothy Humphrey is serving life.

Psychological analysis of Ted Bundy

Psychological analysis of Ted Bundy

Ted Bundy was an American serial killer who kidnapped, raped, and murdered numerous young women and girls during the 1970s and possibly earlier. After more than a decade of denials, he confessed to 30 homicides, committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978. His true victim total is unknown, and believed by some investigators to be higher.

There is a lot of information available on Ted Bundy, including a recent documentary which contained extracts from taped interviews he gave whilst on death row. These give us some insight into Bundy’s dark mind. Often when you closely examine their life before they killed there are often clues which may be the key to understanding why they killed.

Psychological analysis of the Moors murderers

Psychological analysis of the Moors murderers

The Moors murders were carried out by Ian Brady and Myra Hindley between 1963 and 1965, in and around Manchester, England. Their victims were five children aged between 10 and 17.

When Myra Hindley and Ian Brady were caught, they both pleaded not guilty and both gave evidence in their defence. This was a reflection of their arrogance and belief that they could actually get away with these crimes. Within just two hours a jury found Brady guilty of all three murders and Hindley guilty of two. As the death penalty for murder had been abolished while Brady and Hindley were held on remand, the judge passed the only sentence that the law allowed: life imprisonment. Brady was sentenced to three concurrent life sentences and Hindley was given two, plus a concurrent seven-year term for harbouring Brady in the knowledge that he had murdered John Kilbride.
