The Center for Excellence in Justice Administration (CEJA) funds Homicide and Cold Case seminars for both students and professionals. Some seminars are open to students and some seminars are restricted to professionals. The seminars take advantage of Methodist University's unique Applied Forensic Science program and a nation-wide network of renowned forensic and law enforcement professionals with decades of experience investigating homicide cases.
The first event of 2012 featured profiler Mark E. Safarik, M.S., V.S.M. (Supervisory Special Agent, FBI RET.) Mark (pictured above, center) served with the renowned Behavioral Analysis Unit of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Mark's television series Killer Instinct premiered in September 2011. Criminal justice professionals and MU students learned analysis and interpretation of behavior in serial murder and sexual homicide. Following Mark's presentation a police agency presented a cold case to criminal justice professionals for analysis and feedback.
One of CEJA's 2011 events included Michael Capuzzo, author of The Murder Room: The Heirs of Sherlock Holmes Gather to Solve the World's Most Perplexing Cold Cases.
Michael, along with Richard Walter, presented on their experiences with the Vidocq Society and various aspects of homicide cold case investigations.
Professor Dave Pauly (right) has brought these unique seminars to MU in order to both serve the profession and to provide unique learning experiences for students.
