Abstract
The purpose of this thesis is to examine the nature of murders and attempted murders in the City of Edmonton with a particular focus on the demographic and geographic distribution of these crimes across the city and its inhabitants. By examining violent crimes in a specific urban setting, this thesis explores the application of the well-established techniques of criminal profiling and its subset geographical profiling. Specifically, this research incorporates both statistical and spatial analysis techniques to the demographic and geographic attributes of murder and attempted murder victims and offenders in Edmonton between June 6, 2006 and December 31, 2012. The intention of this thesis is to identify exemplars and arrive at a comprehensive profile of murder and attempted murder.
