Back Story: Dr. Rothrock Calls Out a Killer

“Affiant [Sgt. Glenn Flothe] has consulted with Dr. Irvin Rothrock, a psychiatrist, regarding this case. It is Dr. Rothrock’s opinion, having reviewed all of the available materials, that Hansen fits the pattern of a person who might be involved with the missing dancers. Dr. Rothrock bases this opinion on the fact that:

  1. Hansen appears to be an impulsive actor as reflected in his shoplifting behavior.
  2. Hansen was involved in arson at an early age.
  3. Hansen seems to pick victims who he would view as inferior to himself.
  4. Serial murderers are often times avid hunters.

Dr. Rothrock added that often times in cases such as this mementos are kept and, due to Hansen having a family, he may well keep such mementos at his place of business.

Dr. Rothrock also stated that it is only a low percentage of people who continue on thorazine and lithium on a voluntary basis.”
