S.C. man who serial killer Todd Kohlhepp said sold him guns …

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A man who serial killer Todd Kohlhepp told authorities helped him get guns because Kohlhepp was a convicted felon has been indicted on federal weapons charges. 

Dustan Lawson signed paperwork saying the 12 guns and five silencers were for himself when he bought them from 2012 to 2016, but instead gave them to a man only identified as “T.K.,” according to allegations in a 36-count federal indictment filed last week.

Prosecutors and investigators have refused to say who “T.K.” is. But the convicted killer of seven likely made it easier on investigators, saying in a taped interview shortly after his arrest last November that “you may want to seriously talk to Dustan Lawson and give him a heads up.”

Grand jury indicts man accused of arming serial killer Todd Kohlhepp

SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) –

The man accused of helping serial killer Todd Kohlhepp acquire some of the guns investigators found in his possession appeared in federal court Monday.

Dustan Lawson was indicted on 36 federal charges. The accusations include making false statements to the stores where he purchased the guns and knowingly transferring the guns to Kohlhepp, a felon who was not allowed to legally own a firearm.

Kohlhepp’s conviction for kidnapping a 14-year-old girl in Arizona in 1986 prevented him from legally owning a firearm.

How Michael Fassbender chased down serial killer-hunting …

“Well, it’s ‘Who-luh,’ but I call him ‘Hole’,” Michael Fassbender pronounces the name of his latest screen character, troubled Norwegian detective Harry Hole.

“The Snowman” is the first movie made from Jo Nesbo’s popular series of novels about Oslo’s premiere – and probably most screwed-up – police inspector. Huge bestsellers in not just Scandinavia but throughout Europe and the rest of the world, Nesbo’s 11 Hole thrillers (“Snowman,’ the seventh, was published 10 years ago) and other books are becoming as emblematic of Nordic Noir as neighboring Sweden’s “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” novels.

Directed in English by Swede Tomas Alfredson (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” the original “Let the Right One In”), “Snowman” teams a hungover Hole with a mysterious new cop from farther north, Katrine Bratt (Swedish/English actress Rebecca Ferguson), in pursuit of orderly Norway’s first serial killer.

You could say that Hole is dogged in his investigation. But the way Fassbender

With a little help from my fiends: A serial-killer cameo gives Mindhunter’s second episode a brutal boost

Edmund Kemper is not your average pop-culture serial killer. That’s the point. Mindhunter’s second episode may be dogged by many of the same problems as its premiere—we’ll get to that later—but its decision to cast “The Co-Ed Killer” at the Hannibal Lecter to restless FBI Agent Holden Ford’s Clarice Starling is as smart and sinister as the man himself. Played by actor Cameron Britton, whose performance is already one of the most chilling of its type, Kemper is the embodiment of Ford’s argument that this new breed of killer is too crazily complex for the existing rulebook to cover.

When the episode begins, Holden hasn’t even heard of the guy. Kemper hadn’t reached the mainstream celebrity of a Son of

Mindhunter, season 1 review: so much more than your average serial killer drama

Serial killers have never been out of fashion but from The Fall to Hannibal via season one of True Detective and bonkers BBC thriller Rellik television has lately done an especially roaring trade in manic murderers. Every modern example of the genre carries in its bloodstream the DNA of Se7en and Zodiac, David Fincher’s poised and masterful contributions to the canon. Adapted from the writings of a pioneering FBI serial killer profiler, Mindhunter, Fincher’s new Netflix collaboration would, it was generally assumed, see the director going back to the bloody well a third time. He is, after all, the laureate of the gruesome cutaway, a peerless conjurer of claustrophobic dread. 

But Mindhunter – Fincher is executive producer and directed four episodes –  quickly reveals itself to be something else entirely. The 10-part first season – a further four are reportedly planned – is a trenchant argument against the cult
