Dr. Al Carlisle (1937- 2018), was a clinical psychologist who spent fifty years interviewing and studying serial killers. He was arguably one of the first "mind hunters."
He spent 20 years working in the psychology department of the Utah State Prison where he worked with serial killers and sex offenders like Arthur Gary Bishop and Ted Bundy.
He passed away suddenly early on the morning of May 29, 2018, after spending Memorial Day with family. His laughter and insight is greatly missed.
His books are a result of his decades of research, and explore what life choices cause good people to do bad things. If you're interested in learning about the development of a serial killer, check out his books.
