I'm not sure who first used it to describe a researcher focused primarily on a suspect, or group of suspects, but I'm certain I didn't invent the word.



All the best,

JM,

There's probably someone out there cursing you for not giving them the credit for the term.

Yes I'm sure there is. Possibly someone who owns a copy of the old archived message boards on CD-ROM can dust it off and find the person we should congratulate.

The earliest use of the word that I'm aware of is in a post by Christer Holmgren on the forums, 20 February 2015.

Chris George used the term in a post in 2004, which is what makes me think we'd never know unless someone had a copy of the old disk casebook used to sell. There was a server crash in 2008 that permanently erased 10 years worth of posts on the message boards.

A simple search reveals the term being used on here and on JTRF in 2008. Perhaps Chris can remember whether he thought he was coining a new word in 2004.

There are echoes of the fascinating 'one-off' debate here.
