    I want to do an experiment. Using previous data, I'll find all the locations of sniper shootings by a single person and compare it to their dwelling(s).

    For example, this picture:



    is a map of all the sniper shooting by John Allen Muhammad.

    Does anyone know where he lived? By any research can some one please find his home location.
    if not, can someone please give me a different sniper case with multiple shootings and also the location of the shooter's home.

    I'm making a program in Java which should help find the shooter in future sniper cases.

    can this thread be moved to Criminology and Forensic Science ?
