Plumbing being explored at Leaside home connected to alleged …

Investigators did not find any remains or other evidence while digging up the backyard of a Leaside home connected to alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.

Police said that their search involved cadaver dogs, ground penetrating radar, heated up layers of frozen soil all under a large protective tent in the backyard.

But later on Tuesday, CP24 learned that police investigators may have located an item of interest inside the main drain connected to the home.

A dig to raise and expose the drain by city workers is scheduled for 4 p.m.

On Thursday, police said they had located the remains of Andrew Kinsman, 49, and five other people inside large planters removed from the property at 53 Mallory Crescent.

Bruce McArthur was arrested on Jan. 18 and has since been charged with five counts of first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of Kinsman, Selim Esen, Majeed Khayan, Soroush Mahmudi and Dean Lisowick.

A Serial Killer’s Signed Hand Tracing Was Being Sold as a Collectible

(SPARTANBURG, S.C.) — A listing purportedly selling a tracing of the hands of a South Carolina man convicted of killing seven people has been removed from a website and he has been placed in solitary confinement.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports that a signed pencil tracing of the hands of Todd Kohlhepp was listed for sale online at Supernaught.com for $89.

State law prohibits South Carolina inmates from profiting from their crimes.

Prisons spokesman Jeffrey Taillon says Kohlhepp’s mail has been stopped during an investigation and officials are seeing if he tried to sell anything else.

The tracing was removed Thursday after the Herald-Journal contacted the website. It wasn’t clear if the tracing had been sold.

Kohlhepp is serving life in prison after pleading guilty in May to seven counts of murder.

Before the infamy of being a serial killer

The new film “My Friend Dahmer” tells the story of Jeffrey Dahmer’s senior year at Revere High School in Bath, Ohio. All of its 147 minutes focus on his life before his infamous serial killings began.

Nonetheless, crafting a movie with such a notorious central character was never simple.

“It’s very much a tightrope,” said one of the film’s producers, Milan Chakraborty, a 39-year-old who grew up in Terre Haute and graduated from Terre Haute South High School in 1996.

“My Friend Dahmer,” which opened in select theaters around the country last week, was filmed in Bath, including in the house where Dahmer and his family once lived. The movie ends around graduation time for the Class of 1978 at Revere High. Two weeks later inside the Dahmer house, he took the life of a hitchhiker, the first of 17 victims. The rest of the killings happened years later in Wisconsin.

Fourth Shooting in Tampa Neighborhood Being Terrorized by Possible Serial Killer

There has been a fourth shooting in the Seminole Heights neighborhood of Tampa — but police cannot immediately confirm whether it’s part of a string of murders that may be the work of a serial killer.

The body of a man was found just after 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning, a Tampa Police Department spokesperson tells PEOPLE. The victim had been shot just blocks from where three other shootings have occurred since Oct. 11.  Police would not immediately confirm any further details of the victim’s age, race or injuries.

Residents have been asked not to leave their homes nor send their children to school until the scene is cleared by police. Several blocks have been closed off, and more than 50 police vehicles are on the scene.

There are no suspects at this time, the spokesperson tells PEOPLE.

For the past month, Seminole Heights has been terrorized by three killings of people who seem

Serial killer Rose West ‘could die in prison after being stricken with mystery illness’

Serial killer Rose West has been stricken with a serious illness which could be fatal, sources suggest.

The notorious murderer, who took the lives of 12 people, is said to be undergoing treatment in the medical centre at HMP Low Newton, Co Durham.

The Daily Star reports an unnamed source as saying: “She is very ill. Her medical records are closely guarded, and she has a very small circle of staff and fellow inmates in jail, so hardly anyone knows exactly what’s wrong with her.

“But the rumour is that it’s very serious, and could even finish her off.

“West’s life is planned to the letter, because her notoriety makes her very vulnerable to attacks from fellow inmates.

“It also means that when she requires medical attention or prescribed drugs, the

It sounds like a real life horror movie. Two college students with a blossoming relationship were studying at the University of Kentucky.

Chris Maier and Holly Dunn had their whole lives ahead of them but one evening turned into a nightmare that changed everything.
