Abstract

Despite being a critical examination in the process of crime analysis, the evolution of motive and its behavioral expression in a crime are poorly understood. Motive refers to the internal forces that activate and directs behavior, and many attempts have been made to understand motive in individual crime types and in regards to general criminal behavior. These include the Groth typology, the Massachusetts Treatment Center typology, and the typology of stalking by Mullen and colleagues. The pathways model for understanding the evolution of motivation is presented along with these other typologies before closing with some suggestions for determining the motive in a given case.
