The aim of this chapter is to compare rapists and sexual murderers on a set of variables encompassing developmental, psychological, criminological, and offense-related factors. It will be determined whether they should be considered as two separate groups of offenders or as representing individuals who display behavior that forms a continuum of sexual violence. Secondly, the chapter will investigate the specific pathways to offending in a UK sample of sexual aggressors against adult females.
