Talk, Mon 29 Apr 2019

Hull City Hall

Hull City Hall


One of the first British policemen to work closely with the FBI Behavioural Science Unit in Quantico, Virginia, Paul Harrison has interviewed more than 70 of the world’s most notorious killers and mass murderers to gain insight into their psyche.

Now the former Leeds-based detective will be sharing his experiences with a talk at Hull City Hall when he will recount some of the more controversial conversations he has had with these terrifying killers.

Hear why the Yorkshire Ripper was ‘scared’ of him. Learn what drove Robert Maudsley, the UK’s real life Hannibal Lecter, to kill, and why he’s kept in an ‘all glass’ cell.

He also discusses the Amityville Murders of the 1970s when American Ronald DeFeo killed six members of his own family, and what DeFeo said to be fearful of when Paul spent the night at the house of horrors where it happened.

This is a truly eye-opening and entertaining talk that covers 12 stories and interviews, accompanied by a visual presentation covering the history of the individual crimes, and the killers’ stories in their own words.

Sad, frightening, and at times, funny, hear how serial killers perceive themselves, their victims, and their actions.

Paul is regarded as an expert on serial killer profiling. As a consultant on the subject, he regularly works with authors and film and television production companies. He is author of 34 books, mainly true crime.
