Assignment: Investigating a Crime: Phase II – Concepts Related to the Offense

What does the analysis of evidence tell us about the general nature of the crime, the offender’s knowledge of the location of the crime, the risk level for the offender, the level of risk of the victim, and the relationship between the victim and offender? The analysis of the concepts related to the offense can help determine if the crime was organized or disorganized. It can also determine motive and intent.
