On the other hand, criminal investigative analysis, formerly known as criminal profiling, is an investigative tool that can link offenders to their crimes by analyzing their behavior.
Psychology profiling is used when the key factors of the crime scene all point to an illness or psychological disorder. For example they may be able to narrow down the suspects if at every crime scene everyone’s eyes are taped shut or pulled out; they could infer that the suspect may be autistic. Autistic people normally do not make eye contact with others.
