Criminal minds are both devious and fascinating. The television show, Criminal Minds, showed us the world of the criminal profiler and behavioral forensics. On Friday, April 15, you can listen to one of the countries leading experts tell you how they work.

I'm a long time fan of the TV show Criminal Minds. I will admit, though, that as the seasons rolled on, the gruesomeness of the crimes wore me down. The show became harder for me to watch because it became so apparent to me that the evil depicted was, sadly, not far fetched at all.

On Friday, April 15, you can listen to a master of solving crimes first hand. Head on down to New Haven and the Henry C.Lee Institute of Forensic Science at the University of New Haven.

Criminologist Dr. Henry Lee is part of a seminar Friday, April 15, on criminal profiling titled What the Body, Mind and Crime Scene Can Tell. The retired FBI profiler will be conducting the seminar with a retired FBI agent who is a contributing writer for the television show Criminal Minds. You can read more about the institute at

Best news of all, the seminar, which runs from 8:30 am - 4 pm, is open to the public and will only cost you $25.

Listen to Pam Brooks weekdays from 10-3PM on 95.1 FM, online at or by downloading the radioPup app for your mobile device.
