Robert talks with Jack Levin (LEH-vinn), a professor of sociology and criminology and the director of the Program for the Study of Violence at Northeastern University. They talk about the hunt for Andrew Cunanan that's gripped the national consciousness in the last week, culminating in last night's siege of a houseboat in Miami Beach. Levin says that this case is truly unique because police knew who the killer was, and because Cunanan had so many friends and contacts in so many different communities around the nation. Robert also talks with Levin about whether publicity helps or hurts police and FBI investigations.
