The True Stories Behind The Serial Killers Mentioned In Mindhunter

Edmund Kemper

Kemper, also known as the “Co-ed Killer,” makes an appearance in the first episode of Mindhunter. Groff’s character interviews Kemper in order to create a behavior profile. The 6’9” Kemper was arrested in April of 1973, only after committing eight truly horrific crimes. Seriously: you might want to turn back here.

Between May 1972 and April 1973, Kemper picked up six hitchhiking female students, and brought them to isolated rural areas. He killed and decapitated these women, and then had sex with their corpses. Afterwards, Kemper stored their heads in his apartment, and had sex with those, too.

In April 1973, he killed his mother and strangled her friend. Then, he called the police and confessed to what he’d done.

Sociopathic behaviors were in Kemper’s background. At the age of 15, Kember fatally shot his paternal grandmother and grandfather. He spent five years at the Atascadero State Hospital, and

What is the website behind the fake stories about serial killers in SC, NC?

The website react365.com recently posted stories about serial killers in Spartanburg, South Carolina and Shelby, North Carolina.

The fake stories quickly made their way onto Facebook and are being shared numerous times.

Spartanburg Police and Cleveland County deputies quickly posted messages on Facebook telling their followers that the stories were not true.

The first story was posted Thursday about a serial killer in the Spartanburg area.

“7 dead bodies were found laying in various places scattered around Cowpens, Gaffney and Spartanburg, SC in the last 2 months,” the story said. “The most recent one found was exactly 3 days ago laying in a field off of Wofford Street in Spartanburg ,SC.

16 Seriously Fucked Up Facts About Serial Killers That Will Horrify You

“Her flesh was fat and white,” Cuanciulli wrote in her memoir. “When it had melted, I added a bottle of cologne, and after a long time on the boil I was able to make some most acceptable creamy soap. I gave bars to neighbors and acquaintances.”

A real dead body was found on the set of a new show about serial killers


Any TV thriller about a serial killer is obviously going to be
telling some dark stories, but one would hope that such stories
would remain solely on the script pages. That’s apparently not
the case when it comes to the BBC’s new thriller “Rellik,” which
had to halt production when an actual corpse was found on the
location that was to serve as the set for an in-production

East London’s Cambridge Heath Park was to be

David Fincher and Netflix Take On Serial Killers Together in the ‘Mindhunter’ Trailer

The director of ‘Zodiac’ and the distributor of ‘Making a Murderer’ look like a perfect match.

David Fincher, a director known for psychological thrillers, has a new Netflix series dealing with how the FBI studies serial killers. The 1970s-set show, titled Mindhunter, is based on the nonfiction book “Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit” and focuses on the techniques of two fictional agents (Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany) who interview convicted mass murderers one-on-one in order to stop future crimes.

Fincher’s history with television is short but messy. Back in 2014, he signed a three-series deal with HBO, starting with the remake of the British drama Utopia. The company and Fincher had budget disputes that put a halt on that show’s production and led to a cancellation of his deal. However, Fincher has had an Executive Producer credit on Netflix’s House of Cards since its start, and he even directed the first two

The Most Famous Serial Killers in Miami History

Miami resident and prolific serial killer Dexter Morgan, of TV's Dexter

So, uh, there might be bodies buried inside a historic pump house on Miami’s Upper East Side. The building, which dates from the 1920s, was formerly the home of serial killer Robert Bowman, and a New Times feature story published this week detailed that when cops were questioning Bowman in 1982 over the rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl from Ohio, Bowman said he’d killed someone else and buried the body in the pump house.

That same building now houses Café Roval, a classy Mediterranean-style restaurant from veteran Miami restauranteur Mark Soyka.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Soyka hasn’t let New Times poke around the place to investigate. But, since the story adds yet another creepy murder to the mile-long list of weird deaths in Miami history, we figured we’d take a walk through some of the most famous serial-murder cases

The gruesome truth behind four of Britain’s most notorious serial killers

Serial killers are among the toughest criminals for cops to catch – yet sometimes a simple slip-up can be enough to unlock a case.

Dedicated teams of officers can be chasing a killer for months or even years with no clues to go on.

Then out of nowhere, they get a stroke of luck – be it a slip-up by the killer or an unrelated brush with the law – which leads to an arrest.

Since Jack the Ripper stalked the shadowy streets of Victorian East London, there have been at least 34 serial killers in Britain.

But top criminologist Professor David Wilson has even warned there could be TWO active serial killers on the loose in the Britain at any one time, based on his detailed analysis of previous murders and unsolved killings.

To mark the launch of Serial Killer Season on Really at 9pm tonight (Monday, July 10), below we’ve profiled several of

Why Americans Are So Fascinated by Serial Killers

NOTE: The views expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily represent or reflect the views of A+E Networks.

At the 1992 Academy Awards, The Silence of the Lambs achieved something only previously accomplished by It Happened One Night in 1934 and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest in 1975; it won Oscars in all five major categories: best adapted screenplay, best director, best actor, best actress and best film.

An adaptation of Thomas Harris’ best-selling 1988 novel directed by Jonathan Demme, Silence tells the story of the FBI’s search for one serial killer, Buffalo Bill, by using information provided to them by another serial killer, Hannibal “the Cannibal” Lecter.
