Parents of suspected Tampa serial killer won’t talk about son

TAMPA — The parents of the 24-year-old man suspected in a string of fatal shootings that terrorized a Tampa neighborhood will go before a judge Thursday after refusing to answer questions about their son.

Investigators wanted to question Howell Donaldson Jr. and Rosita Donaldson on Tuesday about Howell Emanuel Donaldson III’s background, developmental history, gun possession and state of mind. But they refused, revealing only the names, addresses and birth dates of family members.

Unlike some states, Florida has no law establishing “parent-child privilege,” which would keep communications between them confidential.

“This is a rarity,” said State Attorney Andrew Warren. “Because most people understand that they have a duty to answer questions. And when that duty is explained to them by a judge, they’re willing to provide us answers.”

Suspect was teased at work about resemblance to serial killer

The ex-St. John’s student now accused of slaying four people in Tampa was teased by unsuspecting co-workers about his resemblance to police “wanted” footage of the killer, according to a new report.

“We would tease him and say he was the killer, because he looked like the pictures,” Gail Rogers, a four-year employee at the Ybor City McDonald’s where suspected serial killer Howell Emanuel Donaldson III had worked as a shift leader, told the Tampa Bay Times.

“I called him the killer to his face,” Rogers told the news outlet. “He didn’t like that.”

Tampa cops had released surveillance footage in October showing a hoodie-wearing man walking in the area where one of the victims was killed.

The 24-year-old, who tried out for the famed basketball league at the Catholic college in Queens during the 2011-2012 year, was charged with four counts of murder Wednesday for fatally shooting four random people over

”My Friend Dahmer”: the film about the crazed high school serial killer

Okay, this film looks really good. Actor Ross Lynch does the trailer justice as he moves on from his Disney days.

Dahmer’s sexual focused on the mutilation of corpses and his ”fetish” lasted a total of 12 years.

Ross Lynch, however, is just your average Disney kid. And man has he changed.

Lynch, known for the Disney Channel series ”Austin Ally” dives into the role of a serial killer in this film and from what we have seen so far, he really pulls it off.

Box Office: What ‘The Snowman’ Bombing Says About Serial Killer Movies (And Michael Fassbender)

Universal

Michael Fassbender in ‘The Snowman’

Unless it goes absolutely bonkers overseas, and there is nothing thus far to suggest that it will, The Snowman is something of a dud for Universal/Comcast Corp. and Working Title. The $35 million production, helmed by Tomas Alfredson and starring the likes of Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson and Charlotte Gainsbourg, has earned just $22m worldwide since opening overseas two weeks ago. The film earned a painful $3.3m over its domestic debut on just 1,861 screens, meaning it will struggle to top $10m total in North America. Much of the conversation in the run-up to release concerned poor reviews, the fact that Alfredson was unable to shoot around 15% of the screenplay and Universal’s meme-friendly poster art. But even if the film had gone exactly according to plan, a movie like The Snowman was all-but preordained to fail here and abroad.

Serial Killer 101: Everything You Should Know About All the Killers in Netflix’s ‘Mindhunter’

Serial Killer 101: Everything You Should Know About All the Killers in Netflix's 'Mindhunter'

Netflix’s Mindhunter may be so jammed with drama, sex, and crime it feels like fiction, but the series’ characters are very real. We only have the term “serial killer” thanks to the experts the new show depicts. We only understand the complicated patterns of behavior and dark turns of psyche the story digs into because one man decided to get smart and break the mold. We’re only binging Mindhunter right now because of FBI agent John E. Douglas, whose life and studies are portrayed through series protagonist Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff). Most notably, though, there wouldn’t be a story in the first place without the sick murderers seen in Season 1.

Here’s everything you should know about the serial killers depicted in Mindhunter‘s first season.

Forget walking a mile in her shoes, what about running 26.2? Woman, 27, sets a world record after doing a whole …

Spending a day tottering on high heels in the office sounds like a spa treatment compared to what one young woman put her feet through this week.

Irene Sewell, 27, from Blacksburg, Virginia completed the Seven Bridges Marathon in Chattanooga, Tennessee on Sunday — an impressive feat in its own right, as most people spend months training to run those 26.2 miles in a comfy pair of sneakers.

Irene, however, turned up in a pair of three-inch stiletto heels, and stayed in heels until she crossed the finish line less than seven and a half hours later.
