This chapter would provide a critical and investigative outlook towards the victim–offender relationship as a penal couple. This chapter would address the investigative psychology issues faced in the study of victims of violent crimes. It would reflect forensic victimology as an applied discipline to examine, study, and interpret individual victim evidence in a scientific manner to address challenges in verification of facts presented in investigations and court proceedings. The chapter would talk about some of the theories and standard operating procedures that can be utilized by practitioners, experts and professionals towards victim profiling to facilitate crime investigation. The need for an informed perspective on forensic victimology would
also be reflected in the chapter. Structured studies of victims within an investigative and forensic context will assist in an inclusive and accurate understanding of the role of each participant in the criminal justice system.
