AbstractDr. Cultu is conducting a study of college student behavior, and spends quite a bit of time interviewing individuals who frequent the bars in the area. When a young woman student is murdered, he is asked by local police to have access to his research materials, as the physical and psychological profile the police have put together seems to be a close match to one of the individuals he interviewed. Should he work with the police on this? Includes expert commentary.
