n Acta Criminologica: Southern African Journal of Criminology - An empirical evaluation of interactional analysis of serial murder

Volume 13, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1012-8093



In a previous article Labuschagne (2000:23-30) reviewed the criminological relevance of serial murder as well as some traditional viewpoints on crime. An interactional perspective on the phenomenon of serial murder, in which the contextual aspects based on an interview situation between researchers and the individuals in question, was also provided. This perspective represented a move away from traditional methods of focusing on the murders and the individuals in isolation with the inclusion of broader factors, such as the influence of other people. In this review the author follows through on his previous article and reports on empirically evaluated results of an interactional analysis of serial murder.
