Today’s Guest: Pat Brown, criminal profiler, author, The Profiler
When my agent first told me about Pat Brown, who went from housewife and devoted homeschooler of her three children to one of America’s most recognized criminal profilers, I thought she was kidding.
Whose life is really like that?
But as Pat and I came to know and work together over the past 18 months, I realized how extraordinary her life has truly been—and how frustrating it must be to be her.
PAT BROWN podcast excerpt: “It is a sexual homicide, but maybe something went wrong… I think he might have tried to force her into an act of oral sex. The girl was on her period. If he was trying to get some other kind of sex, he might have been disgusted… Maybe she fought back; maybe she bit him and he got furious with her.”

Pat is the author of a new true crime book, The Profiler: My Life Hunting Serial Killers & Psychopaths. I could tell you what a wonderful and fascinating story it is, but that would be immodest: I helped Pat write the book.
You probably recognize Pat—and that beautiful, trademark blonde hair of hers—from thousands of appearances on NBC’s “Today” show, Nancy Grace and Jane Velez-Mitchell on HLN, Anderson Cooper on CNN and many, many more.
Her book, The Profiler, was a first-week bestseller on Amazon.com, and she’s been as busy as ever these last two weeks following the arrest of Joran van der Sloot in the rape and murder of a young woman in Peru. van der Sloot is also the primary suspect in the disappearance of missing teen Natalee Holloway.
