Terrifying Jeffrey Dahmer Documentaries & Movies That True Crime …

If you’re hoping to delve deeper into one of the darkest serial killer stories that has ever taken place in the United States, you’ll want to watch not just one, but all of the terrifying Jeffrey Dahmer documentaries and movies. But be warned: you’ll need a strong stomach. According to the TV channel Oxygen, the Milwaukee Cannibal “raped, killed and dismembered 17 men and boys” over the course of 13 years. According to The Guardian, the serial killer had sex with many of his victims after killing them and also “ate some [of them].” But, despite the horror of Dahmer’s story, there seems to be an appetite for material that might lead audiences to understand what caused a person to commit such repugnant crimes.

Even 25 years after the cannibalistic killer was brought to trial, a new “two-night special” of

Kenneka Jenkins’ family on ‘The Dr. Oz Show’ again raises doubts about death

Speculation again swirled about the death of Kenneka Jenkins, the young Chicago woman found in a Rosemont hotel freezer, during Tuesday’s episode of the “The Dr. Oz Show,” which featured her mother and sister as guests.

Despite a news release sent by the nationally syndicated show that cited “explosive new details” and posed the question, “Was there a cover-up?” the show mostly recounted what has already been reported about the case. But Dr. Oz and fellow presenter Nancy Grace, who also appeared on the show’s “True Crime Tuesday” segment, questioned the police investigation, offering theories that Jenkins could have been drugged or kidnapped.

After a synopsis of the case, a graphic to explain hypothermia and discussion of different theories, Jenkins’ mother, Tereasa Martin, and sister Leonore Harris joined the show. The two sat on a couch — later accompanied by their attorney, Larry Rogers Jr. — and described how hotel staff refused

Edie Falco talks ‘Law & Order True Crime: Menendez Murders’ and …

Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actor Edie Falco doesn’t just take roles on a whim.

Like her compelling take as mob wife Carmela Soprano on The Sopranos or her drug-addicted E.R. nurse Jackie Peyton in Nurse Jackie, Falco invests herself in the heaviest, meatiest roles possible.

Playing prosecutor Leslie Abramson on miniseries Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, Falco is back playing another powerful female character. Though the 1994 high-profile Menendez trial didn’t resonate as widely as the O.J. Simpson murder trial — even though they took place around the same time — there was certainly intrigue, and it played like a soap opera.

Lawyer Kevin Davis received an urgent call Wednesday from one of his clients, an inmate at the South Central Regional Jail in Charleston, W.Va. There was a “life-or-death situation” that couldn’t be discussed on a recorded phone call.

Davis arrived at the jail that afternoon. His client, who wishes to remain anonymous for fear of his safety, told Davis that a fellow inmate had escaped. He said he’d seen the man shave his face, put on civilian clothing and walk out of his section of cells. The client told Davis to tell a corrections officer but to make sure the information didn’t circle back to him.

Davis scribbled a note and left the interview room. He walked up to a corrections
