The Serial-Killer Detector

quote [ A former journalist, equipped with an algorithm and the largest collection of murder records in the country, finds patterns in crime.

Using computer code he wrote, he searches his archive for statistical anomalies among the more ordinary murders resulting from lovers’ triangles, gang fights, robberies, or brawls. Each year, about five thousand people kill someone and don’t get caught, and a percentage of these men and women have undoubtedly killed more than once. Hargrove intends to find them with his code, which he sometimes calls a serial-killer detector. ]

Hargrove thinks there are a couple of thousand serial killers at large in the US. Law enforcement hasn't been paying attention to the data.

This algorithm will disrupt the serial-killer industry! When is his IPO?

Still building userbase.

Maybe, but new jobs will be formed in the serial-killer detector detector field.

Has he sold the movie rights yet?

It's hard to sell movie rights when your part in "A True Story" is discovering the murderer's identity and being killed off before you can inform the hero.
