Sydney:  Australian police offered a record $4.75 million in rewards Saturday to catch the serial killer or killers behind the murders of six Melbourne women in the 1980s.

Ed Kemper Serial Killer in Real Life | POPSUGAR Entertainment

Despite its somewhat slow pace and gloomy cinematography, Mindhunter is a riveting and sometimes terrifying show. Much of that is owed to the fact that the stories explored in season one are very much rooted in reality, from the FBI agents we meet to the serial killers they interview. While Holden Ford, Dr. Wendy Carr, and Bill Tench are amalgamations of real-life figures, Edmund “The Co-Ed Killer” Kemper is a pitch-perfect onscreen re-creation of the murderer who took 10 lives in the 1960s and ’70s.

In season one of Mindhunter, Bill and Holden seek out a number of imprisoned serial killers to help inform their study. Sure, the scenes with murderers like Monte Rissell and Dennis Rader are chilling, but none hold a candle to the tense, disturbing interactions with Kemper (especially when he’s

Police and FBI hunting possible serial killer ‘terrorizing’ a Florida neighborhood

TAMPA — The third victim in a string of killings in Seminole Heights was a 20-year-old man shot dead after he got off the No. 9 bus, interim Police Chief Brian Dugan said Friday.

Anthony Naiboa, a graduate of Middleton High School, got off at the wrong bus stop after work and was walking north on 15th Street to another bus stop when he was shot, Dugan said. Officers on patrol in the area heard the shots and rushed to the area, but by then the shooter was gone. Naiboa died at North 15th and Conover streets, about 100 yards from one of the other shootings.

“You can imagine the frustration of these officers to hear gunshots and not be able to find this person,” Dugan said. “He was in the prime of his life and

‘The Snowman’: This Serial-Killer Thriller Is Even WTF Worse Than …

Dear Michael,

Can we call you Michael? Mike? No? Mr. Fassbender it is. So, we’ve seen your new movie The Snowman, and we should start off by saying we’re big fans of your work. The political prisoner on a hunger strike, the sex addict in a downward spiral, the slave owner that’s emblematic of a whole 360-degree dehumanizing institution, the mutant guy, the android guy, the guy who gets the shit kicked out of him by Gina Carano, the shirtless sword-and-sandal dude, the other shirtless sword-and-sandal dude – it’s a solid resumé, man. You’re so good you even made a musician who wears a giant paper mâché on his head for 99-percent of a film’s running time seem remarkably moving. We’re not acting coaches or anything, but that could not have been easy.

In a scene from the new Netflix series Mindhunter, an FBI agent asks, “How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?” It’s an apt summary of the project of criminal profiling: If cops could truly understand the twisted psychology of serial killers and psychopaths, they could catch

‘Hangman’ Trailer: Al Pacino Plays Deadly Game With Serial Killer …

“I don’t want to see them die for what I did,” growls Al Pacino as the grizzled homicide detective in Johnny Martin’s upcoming crime thriller Hangman. This new trailer doesn’t make clear exactly what Pacino did – whether he missed a vowel or consonant in the child’s game of the title, or maybe something worse – but victims are hanging around all over town.

Set to the tune of “House of the Rising Sun,” the trailer introduces us to Pacino’s homicide detective Ray Archer and his criminal-profiling partner Will Ruiney (Karl Urban). They’re trying to catch a notoriously vicious serial killer who is playing a twisted version of the kids’ game Hangman. Brittany Snow plays journalist Christi Davies, shadowing the detectives.

Martin, exec producing along with Jonathan Saba, directed from a script by Michael Caissie Charles Hutting, and Phil Hawkins.
