‘Just Why? Why?’ Parents of Suspected Serial Killer Say They Are ‘Devastated’

The parents of a Florida man accused of killing four people over the course of 36 days said in their first public interview Friday that they are “devastated” both for their son and for the families of his alleged victims.

Howell Emanuel Donaldson III, 24, was arrested on Nov. 29 for a string of killings in Tampa’s residential Seminole Heights neighborhood, after he asked a coworker at the McDonald’s where he was employed to hold on to a bag that contained the gun allegedly used in the killings. The coworker alerted a police officer who happened to be in the restaurant at the time, eventually leading to Donaldson’s arrest.

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.
