NDVFRI Webinar Series 2020 - Intimate partner violence and mass/spree killing: The Case of Dwight Lamon Jones (REVISED)
Dr. Websdale will define mass and spree killing and explain the differences between familicidal, felonious, and non-felony related forms of these offenses. The Webinar will concentrate on "public" mass and spree killings, exploring any possible links with intimate partner violence. Websdale focuses on the case of Dwight Lamon Jones, a spree killing in Phoenix, Arizona, in summer 2018. He examines the involvement of both the criminal and civil justice systems and uses the case study to flesh out themes across case types, examining, for example, the gendering of these offenses, the signaling of offenses, histories of intimate terrorism, planning and preparation, the possible role of mental illness, the social isolation of offenders, fascination and proficiency with weaponry, threatening changes in the life circumstances of offenders, and the role of suicidal feelings, depression, rage, extreme hatred, and vengefulness.
