Dale Yeager, a veteran criminal behavior analyst, stopped by to promote his book “3 Myths About Bullying” and read the criminal profiles he’d assembled on a few staffers.

“Profiling is one thing I do. I teach for the justice department,” he said. “I train law enforcement in advanced interrogation.”

Dale said the key to any interrogation is befriending your subject. “You want to make them your friend. There is no good cop-bad cop,” he explained.

Dale said his most successful criminal profile was one of JonBenet Ramsey’s mother, Patsy. Investigators used his profile to interview Patsy. “I wrote questions to make her angry,” Dale told Howard, explaining he focused the questions on Jesus and forgiveness.

The gambit apparently paid off. “She threw a chair,” Dale said, adding, “In my personal opinion, the evidence is very clear that Patsy killed her daughter.”
