Cresson, Pa. – Mount Aloysius College’s Department of Justice, Law, and Society hosted a presentation on serial killers and criminal behavioral analysis thanks to a grant from the RASKOB Foundation. The presentation, called Homicidal Sexual Predators: Inside the Minds of Notorious Serial Killers, featured guest instruction from William Hagmaier, retired FBI agent.
This free training took place Friday, April 28 from 9am to 4pm in the Bertschi Center on the Mount Aloysius Campus.
William Hagmaier discussed the insight he gained through extensive personal interviews with notorious serial killers Ted Bundy and Danny Rolling (The Gainesville Ripper). His presentation provided insight on these violent serial criminals from a perspective that few can provide, allowing law enforcement, attorneys, psychological professionals, and Mount Aloysius students to peer into the minds of heinous serial offenders to prepare them for dealing with similar situations.
Hagmaier has dedicated his life to the investigation of violent, serial, and sexually motivated crimes. He served as one of the five original profilers in the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU), and has served as the chief of the FBI’s National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crimes, has testified before Congress numerous times, and has worked with support groups such as Parents of Murdered Children, Project Hope, Team Adam Advisory Board. He remains a consultant with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. In 2021, the movie ‘No Man of God’ starring Elijah Wood documented Hagmaier’s interviews with Ted Bundy in the years prior to his execution, wherein Hagmaier obtained Bundy’s confession.
This presentation and training offered continuing education credits for law enforcement, continuing legal education, and professional counselors and social workers and awarded attendees with a certificate of completion following the presentation.
