Ed Nordskog is an arson profiler, with 21 years experience in the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. He has investigated 2100 arson cases, and handled 600 bomb calls.
He will highlight two of his most celebrated cases from his Fireraisers book, about Mr. Henderson and Mr. Hough. But they are just the tip of the iceberg.
Over the years, he has interviewed 320 people for arson, including 25 serial arsonists. He has been involved in 48 serial arson investigations. He will help us understand what goes on in an arsonist’s mind - what makes them tick.
With California’s growing wildfire threats, and an uptick in arson cases in 2021, getting to understand their motivation is critical.
And of course, incendiary devices especially in our world of technology have the potential to become even more sophisticated and remote controlled. So make sure to listen in to the Thursday podcast to get a better sense of this growing threat in Northern California and beyond.
