Description

Cleveland Magazine reports on the story of Thomas McCarthy- an all-American fire fighter and family man who was secretly a sex criminal. After being caught in a woman's home and linked to an additional rape, police searches in McCarthy's home, van and work locker found "condoms, rope, binoculars, and the names of 1,266 women." Despite the allegations, friends and family were shocked. 'He was the nicest guy you'd ever want to meet in your life . . .There was never a doubt in my mind about Tommy.' Sex-crimes profiler Roy Hazelwood says that many serial rapists fit many common statistics. "About 70 percent are married . . . and most sexually related ritualistic crimes are committed by while males of European descent." Throughout the article, Hazelwood explains his findings on sex criminals and the motives of serial rapists. In addition, he links these conclusions to comments and questions raised by friends of McCarthy.
