Additional topics included the relationship between cruel behavior towards animals during youth and adult violence, presented by Diane Balkin, attorney for the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s criminal justice program.
Other topics included a look at the sexual components of cults and past sexual homicide case studies seen inside the depths of our country’s homicide units.
