Documentary examines crimes of pig farmer serial killer | Daily Mail …

A new documentary about one of the world’s most savage serial killers examines the grisly murders and resurfaces surveillance footage of his jail cell confession. 

Robert Pickton, a pig farmer from Canada, butchered 49 women on his property and ground their remains into mince which he then sold to customers, some of whom were local policemen, before he was arrested in February 2002.

Now 68, he remains behind bars in British Columbia. 

A new episode of Voice of A Serial Killer which aired on British network CBS Reality in the UK on Wednesday night, examined the killings and footage of Pickton confessing to them in his jail cell. 

He did not know that he was speaking to an undercover Royal Canadian Mounted Police Officer when he described his goal of wanting to murder 50 victims, and his disappointment that he had become ‘sloppy’ and missed the target by one.

Exclusive Video: Major Crimes Star Kearran Giovanni: No One is Safe from Phillip Stroh

Major Crimes airs its penultimate episode tonight as the team continues the hunt for serial killer Philip Stroh (Billy Burke). Not knowing why he has returned to Los Angeles has made the search more difficult, so Stroh and his computer genius accomplice (Will Attenborough) are getting closer and closer to their end game, which has yet to be revealed, as the body count mounts. But if you check out the excluisve video below, you will get a clue!

Needless to say, this is frustrating to Lt. Provenza (G.W. Bailey), who is in charge of the unit since the death of Commander Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell), and he has implored Asst. Chief Leo Mason (Leonard Roberts) to provide extra manpower in order to protect Rusty (Graham Patrick Martin), Gus (Rene Rosado) and others whose lives may be in jeopardy.

“We all have a huge something to do,” Kearran Giovanni, who plays Detective

Major Crimes’ Jessica Meraz on the ‘Exciting’ and ‘Scary’ Arc with Serial Killer Phillip Stroh

Camila Paige (Jessica Meraz) is the newest team member on Major Crimes. She was brought in because of her expertise in missing person cases to help with the disappearance of the St. Joseph’s Three, the first story arc of the final season of the TNT series.

But now that that mystery has been solved, Camila is staying around for more Major Crimes, including both episodes airing tonight.

At 9 p.m. ET/PT tonight, “Conspiracy Theory: Part 3” airs with the team working two seemingly connected murders, and uncovering a series of sexual assaults against servers from Tackles. A new theory about the killer gathers steam, an unexpected twist throws Major Crimes off course and Commander Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) off-balance.

That is followed at 10 p.m. by “Conspiracy Theory: Part 4” in which Sharon must make decisions related to her ongoing health problems while arriving at the solution of a series of murders

That’s way more than the previous decades, and it dropped below 200 by the ‘90s. Take a look at our list of 8 of the most lethal serial killings from the decade. Spoiler: Jeffrey Dahmer, the .22-Caliber Killer and the Night Stalker are made the list, but there’s a few that may surprise you—including a duo that claims they are responsible for killing hundreds.

Documenting the Heinous Crimes of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer

LOS ANGELES Abortionist Kermit Gosnell will spend the rest of his life behind bars for killing potentially hundreds of babies born alive at his Philadelphia clinic.

“You do the math,” said filmmaker Phelim McAleer.

“Detectives think he killed hundreds, perhaps thousands of babies over 30 years. So he’s America’s biggest killer.”

According to the grand jury report, Gosnell killed the babies by severing their spinal cords with scissors. Investigators discovered refrigerators full of aborted fetuses in his offices.

Jurors also convicted the 76-year-old of manslaughter after he botched an abortion and killed the 41-year-old patient.

In their bombshell new book, Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer, McAleer and his wife Ann McElhinney highlight in graphic detail the abuses that took place in Gosnell’s “Women’s Medical Society” clinic.

The couple told CBN News how they came to investigate the case, which was largely ignored by major media outlets.

Ipswich serial killer urged to confess crimes by his father

Ipswich serial killer Steve Wright has been urged to “stand up” and admit his crimes by his father.

During his trial at Ipswich Crown Court, Wright admitted having sex with the women but denied murdering them.

A&E tackling A.C. serial killer, one of N.J.’s most notorious unsolved crimes

Nearly 10 years after four bodies of prostitutes were discovered in a drainage ditch behind a strip of seedy motels outside Atlantic City, two documentarians are digging into the murders in a true-crime investigative series for AE.

The bodies of the women — Kim Raffo, 35, Molly Dilts, 20, Barbara Breidor, 42, and Tracy Roberts, 23 — were all barefoot and positioned with their heads facing east. Two were determined to have been strangled, although the two others were too badly decomposed to rule on a cause of death. Some labeled them victims of the “Eastbound Strangler.”

In “The Killing Season,” executive produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney of Summit, Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills attempt to link the so-called Golden Key murders – for the $15-a-night motel behind which the women were found — to the bodies of sex workers found in 2010 and 2011 on Long Island beaches. The Long Island prostitutes had all booked recent
