False Allegations of Rape and the Criminal Profiler
by Michael McGrath, MD

Abstract: False allegations of rape are not rare and are problematic in law enforcement, diverting investigative resources from more appropriate uses, as well as possibly diluting the investigative vigor of true cases of rape. The criminal profiler must be well informed as to the signs of a false allegation of rape in order to avoid profiling such a "crime" or including it in a profile of a series of crimes. Red flags for false allegation of rape will be presented and discussed.

False Reports in Cases of Sexual Assault: Literature Review and Investigative Suggestions
by Det. John J. Baeza (ret.) & Brent E. Turvey, MS

Abstract: This article provides a detailed literature review of published studies and works that relate to false reports in cases of sexual assault. It also provides a detailed review and critique of several models that are intended to be of use to the sex crime investigator when presented with such cases. The authors conclude with the presentation of a general investigative strategy designed to help illuminate false report cases, the presentation of the Baeza False Report Index (BAFRI), and an overview of the specific motives associated with false reports.

Staged Crime Scenes: A preliminary study of 25 cases, Part 1 of 2
by Brent E. Turvey, MS

Abstract: This paper contains both a literature review of the subject of staged crime scenes and a study of 25 such cases. The purpose of the literature review is not only to assess the current state of the subject, and raise questions of it relevant to courtroom use, but to lay a practical foundation for the original research published within. This combination is intended to provide investigators and forensic scientists with some preliminary tools to assist in accurately recognizing, investigating, and reconstructing staged crime scenes, while preparing the ground for further and better research into this subject.
