She trained at the FBI Academy featured in Silence of the Lambs, but when it comes to depicting the work of criminal profilers, Kris Illingsworth says TV’s Mindhunter does it best – though real life is still nowhere near as glamorous. Instead it’s hours on end of studying the minute detail of a crime that has fuelled her insights into cases such as the Sydney Granny Killer, the Snowtown murders and the Norfolk Island killing of Janelle Patton. “You only get called to the cases that they can’t solve or that are particularly hard for some reason,” she says. “You never get the easy cases … which ..read more
