A look at the new season of ‘American Crime Story’ – The Boston Globe




There are a number of interesting TV series on their way in 2018, including Netflix’s “Maniac” from Cary Fukunaga and Hulu’s Stephen King mashup “Castle Rock.” I’m particularly eager to get a load of the second season of “American Crime Story,” called “The Assassination of Gianni Versace.” Ryan Murphy did a strong job of adding context to “The People vs. O.J. Simpson,” and I’m hoping he’ll come through on this 1990s-set series, too. It premieres on FX on Jan. 17.

The 10-episode show will begin with the murder of fashion’s Gianni Versace, played by Edgar Ramirez, who was compelling in the 2010 SundanceTV miniseries “Carlos.” Then it will go back and cover the events that led up to the murder of Versace and a string of

Reimagining Lizzie Borden and her mysteries – The Boston Globe



AP

Lizzie Borden (in an undated photo) is the subject of Sarah Schmidt’s novel “See What I Have Done.”

In the 125 years since Lizzie Borden was tried and acquitted of murdering her father, Andrew, and stepmother, Abby, with a hatchet, her story has been retold in countless true-crime books, novels, short stories, television series, movies, even an opera and a musical. There’s an enduring fascination to the case in which, as Victoria Lincoln put it in her 1967 work “A Private Disgrace,’’ “the factual evidence of her sole opportunity and her guilt is so overwhelming, yet the bare idea of her guilt is so humanly incredible.” Lincoln’s solution to the crime — involving temporal lobe epilepsy — has since been

Man Accused of Slitting Boston Doctors’ Throats Worked Briefly As a Concierge in Their Building

Bampumim Teixeira, the man accused of slitting the throats of two engaged Boston doctors on Friday in their penthouse, had briefly worked at the luxury building where the couple died, PEOPLE has learned.

Teixeira is accused of killing Dr. Lina Bolanos, 38, and her 49-year-old fiancé, Dr. Richard Field. Their throats were slashed and a “message of retribution” was allegedly written in blood on the walls of their home, according to police.

PEOPLE has obtained an email that was sent from management to residents on Monday night in which they acknowledge that Teixeira, 30, once provided concierge services in the building.

“The suspect … did serve our community as a concierge before leaving the building on his own terms after a few short weeks,” the email states.

Teixeira formerly worked for Palladion Services, the building’s concierge and security company until February, sources

Boston Doctor Sent Frantic Text Message Before He and His Fiancée Were Killed in Their Luxury Penthouse

In the last moments of his life, Dr. Richard Field managed to send a text message to a friend, pleading for help, PEOPLE has confirmed. Alarmed, the friend contacted police, who rushed to Field’s luxury penthouse in Boston.

But they were too late. By the time police arrived, Field and his fiancée, Dr. Lina Bolanos, were dead. Police say that both doctors’ hands were bound  and there was blood everywhere. The couple’s throats had been slit, and the killer allegedly wrote “a message of retribution” on the wall.

Police encountered the suspect at the scene, and a brief gunfight ensued, with the suspect shooting at officers, according to a police statement. The suspect, later identified as Bampumim Teixeira, was injured. “The suspect was struck by the officers and after a violent struggle, placed in custody and transported to an area hospital for treatment of non-life threatening

James Patterson plans true crime book on Aaron Hernandez – The Boston Globe

Kyle Kennedy speaks out.

As we’ve reported, Aaron Hernandez‘s lawyers have made it clear that rumors of the NFL star having a prison lover are nothing more than a malicious lie to “tarnish” the convict’s reputation.

But regardless of the speculation, it is clear the late athlete did have a very close relationship with the 22-year-old, who he spent the past four years with behind bars at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.

Kennedy, who is no longer on suicide watch and is reported to be the last person to see Hernandez before he hung himself in his cell, reacted to the death of his pal in a statement to RadarOnline.com, saying:

Retired Boston Police Superintendent Releases Thrilling Book on 1874 Halifax Triple Murder

News Image
Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB)
January 11, 2017

After spending 29 years with the Boston Police Department working his way up the ranks from sergeant to lieutenant detective and eventually superintendent, John F. Gallagher is excited to announce the release of his third true crime book, titled A Monument to Her Grief: The Sturtevant Murders of Halifax, Massachusetts.

A tragic incident that has become local lore, the book recounts the brutal triple murder of three elderly people at their rural farmhouse in Halifax, Massachusetts in 1874. Gallagher used his many years of investigative experience to research the holdings of the Halifax Historical Society and Museum, contemporaneous news accounts, court and prison records, archival manuscripts, case law and other documentary evidence to offer the first in-depth look at murders that forever changed the small town.

The goal for this book, like others written by Gallagher,

Boston Strangler murders get ‘Serial’ treatment in new true-crime series – WGBA

Thirteen women dead. Most of them raped. Many of them had the life choked out of them. Their bodies often left nude inside their homes for family members or friends to discover. Their ages, races and occupations varied but all were single women in eastern Massachusetts and each was united in how normal their life seemed to be.

It’s been nearly 50 years since Albert DeSalvo was sentenced to life in prison. His alleged role as the Boston Strangler continues to fascinate and terrify people half a century after a killing spree that stretched from June 1962 to January 1964.

A new true-crime podcast is diving deep into the case, which is still officially classified as unsolved. “Stranglers,” hosted by Boston-based journalist Portland Helmich, will be a 12-part look into the Boston Strangler murders, featuring interviews and a fresh look at the evidence.
