Title: On the Altar of Redoubt, a Coiled Dubiety…The linguistic nexus of Robert Browning (1869), H.L. Mencken (1951), and Assistant U.S. Attorney Sal Perricone (2012)


Presenter: James R. Fitzgerald, M.S.; Supervisory Special Agent (Ret.), Federal Bureau of Investigation; The Academy Group, Inc., Manassas, Virginia, U.S.A.


Venue: MB155, The Main Building, Aston University, Birmingham. B4 7ET


Date: Friday, 31 Oct 2014 12.00pm


A case study will be presented in which over 550 separate inappropriate and questionably ethical pseudonymous blog postings in a New Orleans, Louisiana, online news site, and the ensuing forensic linguistic comparison of them to a single 12-page legal brief, resulted in the eventual forced resignation of two Assistant U.S. Attorneys, and the firing of the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana.


Jim Fitzgerald remains an active criminal profiler and forensic linguist with The Academy Group, Inc., even after retiring with 20 years in the FBI, as well as 11 years before that as a police officer/detective/sergeant. During his law enforcement career he successfully investigated numerous homicides, sexual assaults, and other violent crimes, as well as matters of international notoriety to include the Unabom, Anthrax, and DC Sniper cases as profiler and/or linguist. Jim serves as adjunct professor at two U.S. universities, lectures at others both nationally and internationally, is one of two technical advisors for CBS-TV’s Criminal Minds, and is co-host and executive producer of A&E’s Killer Profile. Jim’s memoir of his early years, A Journey to the Center of the Mind, Book I, was published in September 2014 by Infinity Publishing, Inc.
