Deadwood Resident Gives Insight Into FBI Behavioral Science Unit

Victoria Wicks SDPB

The popular television drama Criminal Minds follows a team of FBI behavioral analysts from Quantico, Virginia as they assist in criminal investigations. Greg Vecchi was a member of the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit. He left Virginia for a job with the FBI in Rapid City before retiring earlier this year.

Vecchi now lives in Deadwood where he runs his business, Deadwood Guns. But he stays involved in behavioral analysis as a consultant and teacher. SDPB’s Victoria Wicks went to Deadwood and talked with Vecchi about his business while sitting in her car, one of the quieter places to talk in the town. She ended up talking with him for about an hour about other things as well, including his real-life work as a member of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit.
