‘The Snowman’ Isn’t A Real Serial Killer, But He’s Still Pretty Terrifying

The Snowman may sound like a fun new holiday movie, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The film is a Norwegian-set thriller about a vicious serial killer, nicknamed “The Snowman,” who commits his crimes during snow storms, mutilating his victims and leaving clues for the authorities in the form of grotesque snowman. It’s pretty nasty stuff, but does it have a basis in reality? Is The Snowman a real serial killer?

Thankfully, he’s not. The movie is a complete work of fiction, based upon the novel of the same name by Norwegian author Jo Nesbø. The book is part of Nesbø’s Harry Hole (pronounced “Who-luh”) series of novels, which feature the protagonist detective Harry Hole — played by Michael Fassbender in the film — investigating different crimes. The Snowman is actually the seventh entry in the book series, as it was preceded by The Bat,

Nine women found dead, two still missing: Nearly 30 years later, the mystery of the New Bedford Highway Serial …

The first body turned up in July of 1988, about 30 feet from the road on northbound Route 140 in Freetown, Massachusetts. A motorist who had stopped to relieve herself on the Sunday of the July Fourth weekend came upon the partially clothed, unrecognizable corpse, a bra around its neck – and investigators who soon arrived on the scene could tell the body had been there for months.

What they couldn’t have guessed, however, was just how frequent such grisly discoveries were about to become.

That body, identified five months later in December 1988 as Debra Medeiros, marked the first in a series of killings that would come to be attributed to the New Bedford Highway Serial Killer. Nine women were found, two remain missing to this day – and the murderer has never been caught.

The deaths are the subject of a new book by journalist Maureen Boyle

Everyone’s Heard Of Jack The Ripper – But How About The Still On The Loose ‘Craigslist Killer’?

Over a period of 20 years, the bodies of 10 women were dumped along Ocean Parkway, a remote strip of beach in Long Island.

All had been strangled and wrapped in burlap sacks before being discarded. So who dunnit?

Dubbed the Long Island Serial Killer, or the “Craigslist Ripper”, by the media, little is known about whoever is responsible.

And while no suspects have ever been identified, the victims’ friends and family do know this: the killer – or killers – liked to taunt them, contacting them in real life, over the Internet and on the phone, to pursue their services.

You see, the women, who each worked through Craigslist, shared more than just a resting place:

Melissa and Brainard-Barnes were two of four escorts found buried in the same marshy, desolate area in Gilgo Beach in December 2010, all

"At least I’m still alive” says serial killer Cameron Wilson

Cape Town – “At least I’m still alive,” these are the words sarcastically uttered by serial murderer Cameron Wilson, seconds after he applauded Western Cape High Court Judge Chantel Fortuin’s ruling.

Fortuin handed down four life terms plus 71 years, which would run concurrently, to Wilson.

As he heard his fate the 20-year-old serial killer appeared unfazed by all the strong media presence and crowded gallery. Dressed in his navy Nike track top, Wilson often smiled, giggled and slouched in the dock as Fortuin read out his sentence.

Wilson was found guilty of 13 charges including five murders, one rape and three attempted murder charges.

Fortuin said she based her sentence on three major factors; socio-economic, the seriousness of the crime and possible rehabilitation.  

She said the three life terms derived from three murders including that of 18-year-old Lekita Moore, 16-year-old Stacey Lee Mohale and Toyher Stober.
 
Lekita was stabbed 98

Who would you trust more, a person who says they’re religious or someone who identifies as atheist?

The answer it appears, according a study published in the journal Nature Human Behaviour, is that even though we live in an age of terrorism

Grieving mum of woman, 20, murdered by serial killer still waiting for remains from police

The grieving mum of a young woman murdered by a serial killer is still waiting to lay her daughter’s remains “to rest” – months after police promised to release them.

Taxi driver Christopher Halliwell was convicted last year of the murder of Becky Gooden-Edwards, 20, who vanished in 2003.

Becky’s remains were eventually found during a search for another of Halliwell’s victims, Sian O’Callaghan, in 2011, who vanished after visiting a nightclub.

They were found in a field in Eastleach, Glos, although her skull has still not been discovered.

Her mum Karen Edwards, 56, has lodged a complaint with the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) about the way the investigation was handled.
