Although the Duncan opinion did not say so, analysis by two scholarly experts has come to precisely this conclusion about the Mother Jones material. Grant Duwe, a criminologist for the Minnesota Department of Corrections, is author of “Mass Murder in the United States: A History” (2007), a leading scholarly book on the subject. He wrote that Mother Jones missed more than 40 percent of the cases which met its selection criteria. James Fox is professor of criminology at Northeastern University, formerly the dean, and author of 15 books, including “Extreme Killing: Understanding Serial and Mass Murder” (2d ed. 2014). Fox pointed out that Mother Jones did not consistently follow its purported selection criteria.
