The real Mindhunter: inside the head of FBI ‘serial killer whisperer’ John E Douglas

Towards the end of his career with the FBI, celebrated serial killer “whisperer” John E Douglas arrived home from work to discover his wife had cut her knee. Rather than rush to help tend the injury he was instinctively drawn to the spattered blood – analysing the angle at which it had splashed on the carpet for evidence of foul play. Everywhere he looked, he saw dark deeds and twisted minds.

Douglas’s groundbreaking work profiling and consulting some of the most notorious serial killers of the past 40 years is the inspiration for Netflix’s absorbing new true crime drama, Mindhunter (loosely adapted from Douglas’s 1995 book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit).

As fresh-faced new kid on the block at the FBI Academy at Quantico, Virginia , the softly -spoken native of Brooklyn –renamed Holden Ford in the series – was instrumental in expanding our understanding of murderous

Harvey Weinstein says he’s ‘profoundly devastated’ in new interview

Harvey Weinstein said he’s “devastated” as allegations of sexual misconduct continue to mount against him, according to a new interview.

Less than a week after a New York Times exposé detailed “decades” of Weinstein’s alleged inappropriate behavior toward women, the movie mogul’s wife, Georgina Chapman, announced Tuesday that she has “chosen to leave” him. Shortly after the news broke, Weinstein talked with Page Six.

“I am profoundly devastated. I have lost my wife and kids, whom I love more than anything else,” he told Emily Smith. “I fully support her decision. I didn’t stand in Georgina’s way when we discussed a separation, I encouraged her to do what was in her heart. I know she has to do what is best for the children, for herself and her business, she employs 130 people. I don’t want her or my children to be hurt any more than they already

Freedom from religion important – The Register

Why do religious people think that non-religious people cannot be good citizens ?

Christians were backed by the church to invade, conquer and kill native people if they were unwilling to convert.

Non-religious people did not split into sects, then fight wars, for centuries.

The Green River killer attended church; the BTK (bind, torture and kill) serial killer held a position in his church. You have the Catholic Church protect child molesters and basically imprison unwed mothers in Ireland.

The Church of England, even as late as the 1950s, took children from unwed mothers and shipped them to Australia while telling the mothers the children died, then told the children they were unwanted. The list is endless. These are the organizations being promoted as the standard to live by.

Religious people think little of imposing their beliefs on people but take offense when these beliefs

–>Remember “Northwest noir”? If you’re old enough, you do; and if you’re not, you’ll become acquainted soon since it’s part of a trend in cultural recycling.

Seattle author and journalist Timothy Egan wrote the definitive piece, “Northwest Noir: An Art of the Seriously Goofy,” about the phenomenon for The New York Times back in 1991. The Northwest, known for deep forests and hard rain, had, he observed, a kind of darkness all its own: It often came with quirkiness and humor. Filmmakers like David Lynch and Gus Van Sant; cartoonists like Matt Groening, Lynda Barry and Gary “Far Side” Larson; TV shows like Twin Peaks and Northern Exposure. These, he

Serial killer or wannabe? Expert skeptical in Mobile case

Susan Mayo, right, disappeared in June. Her son Nathaniel Sebastian, 32 (left), has been charged with her murder. (MCSO)  

Since Nathaniel Sebastian was charged with killing his mother and burying her under a porch, the possibility has been raised that the Mobile-area man might have other victims in his past. But both a researcher specializing in serial killers and a local investigator say such speculation is very premature.

60-year-old Susan Mayo, who lived on Glenwood Way in the Wilmer area northwest of Mobile, was declared missing in June. Sebastian, 32, was charged with her murder and abuse of a corpse in early September, after a body presumed to be hers was found in a 55-gallon drum buried under a porch at the home.

At the time, Capt. Paul Burch of the Mobile

AROUND THE TOWN: There is a serial killer among us

There is a serial killer among us. The Federal Bureau of Investigation defines a serial killer as a someone who commits a series of two or more murders at separate times. Most serials have certain types of victims or kill in the same areas (think the I-5 killer or the Green River Killer) and often either leave something at the scene (such as smiley faces) or take something (an article of clothing or even a body part). Ted Bundy was one of the most notorious. He killed numerous women, all with similar physical attributes, before he was captured and ultimately sentenced to death row and executed in a Tallahassee prison.

This serial killer, however, doesn’t have a lot of commonalities with Bundy. This killer has no particular type. He/she is killing young and old, men and women, boys and girls, and people from all ethnicities and income levels. The
