Abstract

The observation and description of 10 cases of sexual murderers of adult male victims lead to the identification of significant differences between this type of sexual murderer and sexual murderers of adult female victims. A classification is proposed based on the description of the entire criminal event. Three distinctive types are identified: (a) the avenger, (b) the sexual predator, and (c) the nonsexual predator. The motivation and the characteristics of the entire criminal event, which includes the study of the offender, the victim, and the context of the crime are discussed for the three types.
