Christopher Berry Dee - Contributor on Murder by the Sea
By Dave Macleod, Tuesday 5th June 2018

Christopher Berry Dee is a former Royal Marine intelligence officer. He is now a criminologist who has interviewed over 30 serial killers. He says he gets inside their heads and forms a relationship with them to understand why they do what they do. Chris has been to four executions but says his work doesn't affect him emotionally: "I have to become as cold as the serial killers I'm working with. Serial killers are highly manipulative". He has had relationships with some killers over many years - to the point where they often open up to him and tell him things they don't tell police. Chris says some of the killers believe he is their friend.

He says that to do what he does, you almost have to have two personalities, a bit like Jekyll and Hyde: "At home I'm a family man, but at work I have to be cold and detached to be able to work in that dark and dangerous world. To understand a serial killer, you have to think like one – to show no emotion and get on their level".

Chris interviewed Peter Sutcliffe, A.K.A. "The Yorkshire Ripper", and also visited and exchanged letters with Joanna Dennehy, whom he described as being extremely manipulative.
