Amatuzio, J., Delong, C., and Kellner, M. (2010). Deadly Women-Angels of Death, Black Widows, Female Sociopaths, and Predators. Deadly Women. Investigation Discovery. ID: Investigation Discovery : Hollywood Crimes, Forensics, Murderers. http://investigation.discovery.com.
Investigation Discovery has a series they air on their network called “Deadly Women”. They have many different episodes of “Deadly Women” as I listed above. All of the episodes have credible sources explaining significant details about each type of woman killer. Kellner, Delong, and Amatuzio all contributed significant information to the episodes regarding why and how women kill. Kellner is a crime writer, Delong is a criminal profiler, and Amatuzio is a forensic pathologist. All three of these sources seem to have significant ethos in each of their fields and logos when explaining their take and research done on women killers. I believe that this source is vital for my blog and has given me ample information to use when talking about women who kill. Investigation Discovery has given me the most credible information for my blog.
Kett, R. The Biggest Female 6 Serial Killers. Retrieved from http://hubpages.com/hub/The-5-Biggest-Female-Serial-Killers.
This article was one of the first that I came across when I was initially started to do my research. Although this article/ blog post is written by someone that does not have the ethos of some other experienced writers his information was backed up by his sources at the end of the article. The article was very use in finding research about serial killers specifically. The serial killers he listed were some of the more famous ones that I came across in other research I did. Kett used simple logos by stating the woman serial killer and explaining a bit about her life and why she was famous. I used some information from the article, but it did not play any role except in my blog post about serial killers.
Jensen, V. (2001). Why Women Kill: Homicide & Gender Equality. Boulder, CO: Lynne Rienner Publishers.
This book by Jensen gave me vital information for blog. I found great facts about the difference between male and female killers and gender in society. This book has great ethos because Jensen is a credible published author. The logos of the book was set up very well and was easy to follow when trying to find the information that pertinent to my blog. This book was exactly what I wanted to discuss in my blog and was very interesting to read. Although I only used specific quotes from this source a few times the information I found helped me to form opinions and state information that was necessary to help make my blog credible.
Macleod, M. Aileen Wuornos: Killer Who Preyed on Truck Drivers. Retrieved from http://www.trutv.com/library/crime/notorious_murders/women/wuornos/1.html.
TruTv.com has multiple articles about all different topics including female murderers. This specific article by Marlee Macleod was about prolific serial killer, Aileen Wuornos. The article talks about Wuornos childhood as well as the murders she committed and her conviction. I am not sure how credible Macleod is because the information I found on her did not describe particular ethos regarding her writing but mostly talked about her career as a singer/songwriter and showed some of her other articles. Although I could not find much about the author I was able to pull some information from this source that I thought was credible and was able to find in other outlets as well. TruTv.com displayed ethos through its website and most articles displayed.
Meyer, C., Oberman, M. (2001). Mothers Who Kill Their Children. New York, NY: New York University Press.
This book was interesting to read and it gave me great background information when I first began to research my topic. In the end I did not end up using information from this source. Nothing I found in this book would have enhanced my blog at all, but just got me thinking about topics for blog posts. I believe this source had great ethos and if I could have gone more in depth into I think I would have found something to use in my blog. The logos of the book threw me off a bit because the contents did not list anything that I was specifically looking for. This source is one that I did not use but did look into for information.
Schurman-Kauflin, M.D., D. (2000). The New Predator: Women Who Kill. New York, NY: Algora Publishing.
This book I used most out of all the other books I discussed. This source had great ethos and logos. The author of this book is a doctor and seemed to know a lot about women who kill. The way the book was set up was easy to follow along with and set out the information in an effective manner. This source was vital in my research and helped to write a lot of my blog posts. I also was able to quote this source quite a few times throughout my posts. The book explained how society explains women who kill and did a good job at also comparing men and women killers which was a component in my blog. This source was one of the first that I found which helped me to figure out other blog posts.
Sons, K. (2005, December 16). Why Some Mothers Kill Their Children. Retrieved from http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/14935/why_some_mothers_kill_their_children_pg2.html?cat=17.
This article used content from multiple other sources to try and explain why women murder their children. The article talked about what can cause women to commit such a horrific crime and some of the women who have done so. Associatedcontent.com has many articles about many different topics. They pay writers to contribute to their website so people can read about various things. Kelly Sons is a contributor for associatedcontent.com. She is described as a freelance journalist and nonfiction writer who has been working in this field for the past 12 years. Sons attended Kaplan University and Motlow State. I believe this source had good information for my topic and seems to be credible. Although the website pays their writers for their content, which leads me to believe that their work is researched and checked before being published, I am not sure how the writers are chosen to be contributors to the website so that lacks some credibility.
Walker, L. (1989). Terrifying Love. New York, NY: Harper & Row Publishers.
This book helped a lot with one specific post I had about why women kill and their backgrounds. I found that this book had great ethos and logos because it mixed actual stories of people lives as well as credible author’s comments. I found this book one of the most interesting to read and at the same time I found a lot of information. This book explained about the woman behind the murder and the batterer or victim of the murder behind the woman. It was interesting to read real life accounts of these woman’s lives and for them to explain why they did what they did.
