Kansas City serial killer suspect: ‘Kill all white people’

An suspected serial killer eyed in the executions of five men along Kansas City hiking trails once threatened to “kill all white people.”

Fredrick Demond Scott, 22, who has been charged in two of the slayings and is the prime suspect in three others, allegedly carried a brutal grudge.

The Kansas City Star reports that according to court records, Scott, who is black, threatened three years ago to shoot up an area alternative school and “kill all white people.”

But his mom told the newspaper that her son — who suffers from paranoid schizophrenia — never displayed any sign of hatred towards whites.

“As far as I know, Fredrick never had a problem with white people,” his mother said. “He would do odd jobs for people and some of those people were white men.”

Police say they aren’t sure if the murders were racially motivated, but say the accused told detectives he was

The Limehouse Golem review – lurid but literate Victorian serial …

“Find out all you can about … George Gissing, Karl Marx and Dan Leno!” With these bizarre instructions to his uncomprehending sergeant, the dashing police inspector at the heart of an occult Victorian murder mystery introduces a startling list of celebrity suspects: a novelist, a revolutionary philosopher and a music hall megastar.

Bill Nighy takes a rare non-comic role as the dapper detective John Kildare in 19th-century London, on the trail of a pre-Ripper serial killer nicknamed the Limehouse Golem. Each of these famous figures could be the psychotic murderer, but Kildare’s fourth – and prime – suspect was a fictional failed playwright, one George Cree, who has just been found dead. Cree’s widow, former music hall turn Lizzie (Olivia Cooke), is now charged with his murder, but if Kildare can prove Lizzie knew Cree was the Golem, and killed him in self-defence and to

BBC’s new serial killer show looks really intense and addictive | JOE.ie




By Paul Moore

If you like Luther, The Missing and Line of Duty, this should grab you.

The last time we saw Richard Dormer tackle a villain was when his character in Game of Thrones, Lord Beric Dondarrion, was igniting his sword to take on the army of the dead, but in his new show, Dormer is using a different approach to confront evil.

The premise of the show sounds very interesting. Basically, the new BBC drama will tell the story of a serial killer in reverse.

If that’s not enough to pique your interest then you’ll be delighted to know that the creators of The Missing, Harry and Jack Williams, are the minds behind this one.

Rellik (killer spelled backwards) aims to flip the serial killer genre on its head. What makes a serial killer? Or the cop who is compelled to relentlessly track

Was It Really ‘America’s First Serial Killer’ H.H. Holmes Buried in a …

This summer’s great murder-mystery surrounding a man hanged in Philadelphia 121 years ago and known as “America’s first serial killer” has been solved.

We think.

An eight-part television show called “American Ripper” on the History Channel that examined the life, death and legends surrounding mass murderer Herman Mudgett, aka H.H. Holmes, concluded Tuesday night.

NBC10 Investigators were first to unearth the growing mystery in April of the Holmes conspiracy that he escaped death. Then, in July, NBC10 exclusively reported that a search for the truth was underway — with Holy Cross Cemetery in Delaware County as the epicenter.

The question all along, spurred on by the show’s co-host and Holmes’ great-great-grandson, Jeff Mudgett, was whether Holmes actually hanged at Moyamensing Prison in South Philadelphia in 1896 and was then buried at the Yeadon cemetery.

‘They didn’t see it coming’: ‘Boast’ of suspected black Missouri serial killer, 22, ‘who stalked and murdered middle …

A Missouri man has been arrested on suspicion of being the serial killer who stalked and murdered five middle-aged men in Kansas City.

Fredrick Demond Scott, 22, is believed to have shot dead the five men – three in the back of the head – between August 19, 2016, and August 13 this year.

The first four victims were killed in secluded areas, mostly on or near hiking and biking trails in the area.

But Scott became over-confident and was captured after claiming his fifth and final victim in broad daylight on a city street then getting on a bus, police told The Kansas City Star.

When being questioned, Scott – whose possible motive is unclear – allegedly boasted of his stealthiness, saying of the victims: ‘They didn’t see it coming.’
