The final chapter draws together the findings from the analysis and considers how the approach taken was useful in making sense of Mary Ann Cotton in ways that existing frameworks for understanding female serial killers are not. The authors argue that their approach – institutional mediation - has the potential to be a trailblazer for broader understandings of individual female serial killers. In addition, wider use of institutional mediation is also considered in relation to studies of homicide beyond serial killing.
