Through her personal research, she uncovers surprising motivations behind these heinous crimes and delves into why we, as human beings, are so captivated by such horrors.
Dr. Toles’ fascination with true crime began at a young age when she witnessed the violent death of a teenage girl. This experience ignited her curiosity about death and murder, leading her to write illustrated stories on the subject as a child. She aims to bring deeper insight to the topic of true crime through her social media channels. By connecting with online communities, she works to debunk myths and answer questions surrounding serial killers and criminal psychology. Her goal is to raise public awareness and promote safety in the face of society’s most disturbing individuals.
With extensive experience in both clinical and forensic evaluation settings, Dr. Toles has dedicated herself to understanding the motivations, behaviors, and patterns of dangerous criminals, particularly serial killers. Beyond her clinical practice, Dr. Toles has served as an expert witness in high-profile court cases, utilizing her criminal forensic expertise and psychological evaluation skills to help bring justice and understanding to these legal proceedings.
Additionally, she has worked intimately with numerous female murderers and inmates who suffer from acute mental illnesses at Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California, under the supervision of Dr. Michael Maloney, a forensic psychologist in the Menendez Brothers case. Dr. Toles is in high demand as a lecturer and speaker, sharing her knowledge on profiling and understanding the minds of serial offenders.
