Forensic Profile of a Female Serial Killer (Poison, Slit throat)

Setting: Science fiction. An alien colony of human-like individuals. Culture is somewhat British inspired.

I have a crime scene in my novel where someone has been paralysed with a poison and then had their throat slit. The murderer was a female, and I want my wunderkind forensic profiler to be able to tell that it was a female straight away.

Some of my google-fu has already uncovered this website at http://faculty.ncwc.edu/toconnor/428/428lect11.htm which has helped narrow down the most likely causes of murder (Poison! I added the slit throat myself), however I was wondering if there might be any other tell tale clues that he might pick up on. Is a female killer more likely to clean the body, or position it in a certain way? The victim was male but there was no sexual motive to the murder.

In addition, what might say about the murderesses lifestyle based on the modus operandi?

I've typed things like "Profile of female serial killers" and "Forensic profiling female serial killer" which is how I got the website. "profile slit throat" and "profile cut throat" got me deviant art and myspace accounts :-/ so that seems to be a dead end.

Cheers all.

EDIT:Thanks to everyone who answered my question. I now know what I am going to do. You have all been a tremendous help, I appreciate it ^_^
