Based on the screenplay by Marla Young, "Profile For Murder" follows, Jackie, a female criminal profiler, who plans to spend her retirement enjoying her husband and children after a traumatic exit from her job.

Jackie finds herself in a precarious situation as she fights to protect herself and her family from a deranged killer. (Synopsis)
Though not advertised as a movie based on a true story, it does an excellent job of shining the spotlight on the work detail of real-life women who work as criminal profilers.
"Profile For Murder," not to be confused with the 1996 movie starring Lance Henriksen, currently airs on Lifetime Movie Network.
