In Juvenile Sexual Homicide, Wade C. Myers,
MD, addresses, in matter-of-fact, clinical detail, the disturbing subject
of sexually motivated murder committed by a juvenile. He carefully delineates
the varieties of personality disorder, emotional disturbance, sadism, and
other perversions observed in cases culled from the literature as well as
his own work as a forensic psychiatrist and director of the Psychiatry and
the Law Clinic at the University of Florida. Readers are forewarned that his
185-page book is liberally illustrated with crime scene photographs and graphic
artwork by several offenders.
