“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:
- Hansen appears to be an impulsive actor as reflected in his shoplifting behavior.
- Hansen was involved in arson at an early age.
- Hansen seems to pick victims who he would view as inferior to himself.
- 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.”
