Juvenile Sexual Homicide relays the findings of Dr. Myers' ten-year study of juveniles convicted of committing or attempting murders that involved sexual acts. Sixteen incarcerated males aged 13 to 17 years at the time of their offenses completed psychological testing and rigorous interviews. Several chapters of the book are devoted to aggregated descriptions of the sample in areas spanning demographic characteristics, psychosocial histories, diagnoses, victims' characteristics, and crime-related motivation and decision making. The author educates the reader by including an overview of the available literature on sexual homicide among adults that reviews etiological theories and prognoses. Integrating his study with previous findings among adults, Myers concludes with a typology of juvenile sexual murderers that is based largely on perpetrators' personalities, motivations for crime, and other characteristics of crime.
