German serial killer nurse may have killed at least 106

Neils H in court in 2015 with his lawyer

As a reminder that you don’t need semi-automatic rifles to be a mass murderer, German prosecutors have raised the death toll at the hands of a male nurse to about 106. “Niels H”, 41, had already been convicted on two counts of murder and four of attempted murder in nursing homes in the northern German cities of Oldenburg and Delmenhorst between 1999 and 2005.

However, investigations have continued after his conviction and the total is rising. In August, police said that they suspected that he may have killed 90 people after exhuming the bodies of more patients. Now they have added another 16. New charges will be brought next year.

There is a good chance that more murders will be discovered.

Why did Mr H do it? Prosecutors said the he felt bored with his repetitive work. He would inject patients

Inside the mind of the Japanese serial killer who killed 9 people

In June, one month after he was given a suspended prison term for being a scout for a prostitution ring, Takahiro Shiraishi told his father that he saw no meaning in life.

Jobless, the 27-year-old cocooned himself further in the dark recesses of social media. He used Twitter, a medium he once used to lure girls into the sex trade, to meet people with suicidal thoughts.

The gruesome Halloween find of nine human heads and 240 bones in his studio apartment in Zama city, an hour and a half from central Tokyo, has spooked Japan and again shone a light on suicide and mental health issues in a country that even has a “suicide forest”.

Japan has the sixth highest suicide rate in the world. Some 21,897 killed themselves last year – a 22-year low, while there were 257 reports filed with the Internet Hotline Centre about suicide attempts.

Inside the Hunt for the Golden State Serial Killer Who Killed 12 and Raped 45 in California

It was around 6:30 a.m., on October 5, 1976, when Jane Sandler heard footsteps running toward her bedroom in her ranch style house in Citrus Heights, California, a middle class suburb of Sacramento.

Thinking it was her husband, who had just left for work for the day, Sandler, a 30-year-old Air Force reserve captain, said, “What did you forget?”

That’s when she looked up and saw an intruder wearing a black ski mask shining a flashlight in her face. As she clutched her 3-year-old son next to her, he put a large knife to her chest and muttered, “Shut up, I will kill you.”

The intruder quickly tied their hands, blindfolded them, and tied her feet using sheets from her bed.

“He had this ritual of ripping and tearing these sheets,” Sandler, now 71 and the author of Frozen in Fear: A True Story

Woman allegedly killed by suspected Indian Creek Trail serial killer was homeless

It’s been nearly three months since Karen Harmeyer was found dead in a patch of Grandview woods, but her body remains unclaimed at the county morgue.

Harmeyer was the victim of an alleged serial killer, a 22-year-old Kansas City man charged with two other murders and suspected in three more, four near Indian Creek Trail in south Kansas City.

The 64-year-old Harmeyer lived in a tent in a wooded area behind a church in the 12200 block of Blue Ridge Boulevard.

Her body was found July 19 with her feet protruding from the tent by several people who checked on her regularly, according to a Grandview police report.

The report does not state how she died.

But last week, Jackson County prosecutors announced that they had charged Fredrick Scott with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in Harmeyer’s death.

Scott was previously charged with killing two men
