Photos From the Grave of ‘America’s First Serial Killer’

Archaeologists at Penn Museum exhumed the body of 19th century mass murderer H.H. Holmes from Holy Cross Cemetery outside Philadelphia earlier this year. Cox and her team shared photographs with NBC10 taken inside the grave and throughout the excavation and research process. The pictures provide a fascinating look at what happens to a body after 121 years underground, and are the first glimpses of what remains of the man often described as America’s first serial killer.

He has stared into the eyes of evil and sat across from the world’s most depraved minds.

But FBI agent John E Douglas had no time for fear. He had to talk to serial killers and find out what makes them tick to crack other cases.

He has been face to face with the likes of Charles Manson , Ted Bundy and the Son of Sam.

Their sick insights helped him solve cases including the Atlanta Child Murders and Robert Hansen, the Alaska Butcher.

He has suffered post-traumatic stress disorder and still gets flashbacks.

Ross Lynch Teases ‘My Friend Dahmer,’ Breaking Away From Disney With ‘Darker, More Intense’ Role

Ross Lynch threw himself into exile.

To get in the headspace of notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, the Disney alum sought isolation in Akron, Ohio, where he would go on to film My Friend Dahmer. “There was not a lot going on in the area, to say the least,” the 21-year-old exclusively tells Us Weekly. “I was really to myself and alone, like Dahmer throughout his childhood.”

15 Movies to Fall For This Season: ‘Justice League,’ ‘Wonder’ and More!

Known as the Milwaukee Cannibal, Dahmer raped, killed and dismembered 17 boys and men over from 1978 to 1991. However, this psychological thriller, based on the graphic novel by Derf Backderf, deftly dives into his formative, high school days.

Inside the Life of River Phoenix, the Beloved Actor Who Died at 23

Tuesday marks the 24th anniversary of River Phoenix’s untimely death on Oct. 31, 1993.

The actor was just 23 when he died outside the Viper Room in West Hollywood due to a drug overdose, but made his mark on the world after starring in beloved films Stand By Me (1986), Running on Empty (1988) and My Own Private Idaho (1991). His final film, Dark Bloodwas completed in 2012.

In Phoenix’s honor, we’re taking a look back at his quick rise to fame and the best work of the gone-but-never-forgotten star.

An Unusual Childhood

Phoenix was born on August 23, 1970 in Madras, Oregon. His family moved around a bit when Phoenix was a child, living in places such as Texas, Mexico, and Venezuela as missionaries for the religious movement, the Children of God.

It was in Venezuela that River and his sister Rain formed a singing duet to help make ends meet. Sometimes they performed in talent shows and sometimes, as Read more at: http://people.com/movies/inside-the-life-of-river-phoenix-the-beloved-actor-who-died-at-23/

Flashback: See Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer’s Creepy Duet on Leon Payne’s ‘Psycho’

In the history of country music, where grisly murder ballads and laments to dead mothers, children and dogs are commonplace, every day carries a little bit of the ghoulish Halloween spirit with it. There is probably no more twisted, demented and just plain odd a country song than “Psycho,” a tune first recorded in the late Sixties but whose origins were, for a time, as curious as its deeply disturbing lyrics.

Written by Texan Leon Payne, whose songs had been recorded in the early half of the 20th century by Hank Williams (“Lost Highway”), Elvis Presley (“I Love You Because”) and Jim

Serial killer couldn’t figure out how to dispose of bodies without getting caught: cops

A Japanese sicko told cops he was living with the body parts of nine people he killed because he couldn’t simply throw out the remains “out of fear for being caught,” according to a report Tuesday.

Takahiro Shiraishi admitted to assaulting some of his victims and that he intended to rape them, Kyodo News reported.

“I killed nine people since I moved [into the apartment] on Aug. 22,” Shiraishi told police.

He said stealing money was a reason behind his murder spree and that he mutilated the bodies for a very pragmatic reason.

“I couldn’t throw away [the bodies] out of fear for being caught,” he told police.

Cops were investigating a missing 23-year-old woman when they discovered the dismembered bodies of eight women and one man stuffed inside cold-storage containers inside

Shiraishi’s home in Zama city. A saw believed to have been used in the killings was also found at the home.

Shiraishi admitted
