Leading criminal psychologist Tim Watson-Munro told Jim Wilson the alleged offender is likely someone with no remorse and no empathy, “which is the hallmark of a psychopath”.
“I’ve examined a lot of people like him.
“He’s very bad, he’s not mad – he’s capable of planning a crime.
“With crazy people, they’re very disorganised, they wouldn’t be able to do it.”
