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
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.

“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.
