    Interview with Dr. Tristin Engels

    Interview with Dr. Tristin Engels

    Welcome back to Victimology!

    In this week's episode, I am joined by forensic psychologist, Dr. Tristin Engels. Join us as we discuss her career as well as her book, The Power of Truth: The Life of Louis R. Vitullo and the Legacy of the Rape Kit. In 2013, she completed graduate school, and now treats offenders with significantly long, violent, and sexually deviant histories with the hopes of addressing maladaptive behavioral patterns, identifying undiagnosed mental illnesses, and ultimately reducing their risk of re-offending.

    Here is her Amazon author page:
    https://www.amazon.com/Tristin-Engels/e/B08F2WXLYN%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt_scns_share

    You can purchase her book here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08F2TRHYL/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_hsch_vapi_tkin_p1_i0

    Live Q&A with True Crime Broads - Missy Bevers

    Welcome back to Victimology!

    In this week's episode, I am joined by the lovely ladies of the True Crime Broads podcast to talk about the Missy Bevers case on a live q&a event on Facebook. Missy was murdered early one morning while setting up for an early morning workout class. There are more questions than answers surrounding the case. Crystal and Renae have been covering Missy's case for a while now and actually funded a billboard asking for tips about Missy's murder.

That awful music

Good Lord the music is unbearable.

SSNDGM ,

Feeling her

Found Melissa Lee from True Crime Garage Delphi episode. Loved her insight and passion on that case (my passion case too!) and am now binging. She’s bright.

Love this podcast

I started listening with her Delphi interview and have been hooked ever since. This is a "don't miss" for any true crime fan.
