How Netflix’s Serial Killer Drama ‘Mindhunter’ Draws From Real Life

“And that’s exactly what these agents were able to do. They would go in, look at a scene, and come up with the basic categories,” Burgess recalled. “They would have their whole team there, and sometimes people would disagree, which was great! Because by disagreeing, they could say, ‘Well, I see this.’ Or, ‘I don’t see that. How do you see that?’”

How the ‘Killer Clown’ Suspect Was Caught 27 Years Later

Police were able to catch an alleged killer who police say dressed as a clown and killed a woman in Florida nearly 30 years ago by setting a trap for her, ABC’s 20/20 reports in an episode airing Friday night.

In May 1990, when Marlene Warren, 40, opened the door of her luxurious Palm Beach County home, she was fatally shot in the face by someone dressed as a clown who then slid into a white convertible and calmly drove away.

The case went cold for years until Palm Beach County authorities reopened it — and discovered new DNA evidence allegedly linking a woman named Sheila Keen Warren, 54, to the crime, say police.

Did a Convicted Texas Murderer Reveal He Was a Serial Killer?

Nearly 20 years ago, in letters he wrote to local prosecutors, Texas murderer Edward Harold Bell claimed the Marine he’d shot and killed in 1978 was not his only victim.

In fact, he said, there were seven others, all girls.

Years later, in a series of prison interviews with the Houston Chronicle in 2011, Bell revised that number of purported victims. It wasn’t seven, he said — it was 11.

The “11 that went to Heaven,” he called them, according to the Chronicle. Along with his supposed confessions, Bell, now 78, provided names for some of the girls he said he killed. He claimed he’d been brainwashed into violence.

But was he telling the truth?

Six years after the Chronicle‘s investigation of Bell, first published in 2011, comes AE’s new six-part docuseries The Eleven, which premieres on Thursday and

Mindhunter: Who is the Mysterious Killer Glimpsed Throughout the Series?

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

This article contains spoilers for the first season of Mindhunter, and Zodiac.

It’s as though director and executive producer David Fincher posed us a very simple question: “what do you want?” And we replied “10 hours of Zodiac, please.” To which, in his wisdom, he cheerfully responded “say no more fam.”

Yes, ’70s-set binge-fodder Mindhunter arrived on Netflix this past Friday and ended up monopolizing our entire weekend – we tore through all 10 episodes of the relentlessly creepy (and unexpectedly funny) FBI drama, based on the legendary book Mind Hunter: Inside The FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker.

After the final credits rolled, we were left with a few tantalizing threads still dangling. What happened to that cat? Has Holden finally opened an emotional floodgate within himself that he’ll struggle to shut? What happened to that cat?

Who Is the ‘Golden State Killer’ and Will They Be Caught? People Magazine Investigates Will Explore the Case in …

A suspected serial killer still at-large, a toddler who disappeared in the woods and a Connecticut family held hostage in their home: These will be three of the 12 cases spotlighted when People Magazine Investigates returns next month for its second season, on Investigation Discovery.

David Fincher makes Netflix’s serial-killer thriller Mindhunter worth the wait

Cameron Britton (left), Jonathan Groff (Photo: Merrick Morton/Netflix)

Special agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) are two instructors at the FBI Training Academy in Quantico, Virginia. They’re seated across from one another, in a symmetrically framed, hazily lit cafeteria, discussing Holden’s extracurricular studies in psychology and their applications to his course on hostage negotiation. Ford is young and neatly quaffed, instantly fingered as a G-man by his University Of Virginia classmates and instructors (and shunned for it); Tench has a crew cut left over from J. Edgar Hoover’s tenure at the bureau, but keeps his wide neckties loosened at the knot. Ford’s talk of criminal psychology is rubbing his colleagues the wrong way, and he’s eager for the FBI to move beyond classifying pathological cases as thrill killers and lust murderers. It’s earning him a

Evil serial killer known as the Brooklyn Vampire who kidnapped children and cut them up and ATE them

He is arguably the most depraved serial killer in the annals of American crime, a sadist, paedophile, and cannibal who by his own estimation killed as many as 100 children over a murderous career spanning more than two decades.

He was also a reprobate of quite staggering proportions, who practiced so many perversions that his court-appointed psychiatrist called him “the most polymorphous pervert I have ever known.”

The newspapers of the day called him the Gray Man, the Brooklyn Vampire, or the Werewolf of Wisteria.

His real name was Albert Fish.

On Monday, May 28, 1928, Delia Budd answered a knock on her apartment door and found a frail old man standing on the threshold.
