Been reading a lot about the Robert Pickton murders. Vancouver BC.
A sick dude.

Watched True Crime with Aphrodite Jones as the subject was none other than OJ Simpson. It's absurd how he got away with the murder case at first. They had so much evidence, that I'm sure that if he wouldn't have been a famous person like he was, he would've gotten a death penalty or at least been sentenced to life in prison.

Got the the green light from the mod to bump this so lets get this thread back on track.

anyone have any stories about the lesser known serial killers?

edit:

I'm guessing that at least some of the Aussies in here have heard about Martha Rendell. Talk about an evil mother-in-law. I mean if swabbing a childs throat with hydrochloric acid isn't considered sick, then I don't know what is.

Never heard of this one but definitely sounds sick.

On a related note, I just watched Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer on Netflix.

Saw it years ago but wanted my girlfriend to see old school Michael Rooker lol.

Okay to bump this old thread? I don't know if we don't bump old threads because they aren't relevant or something to do with the age and the servers or whatever, but if it's relevance I thought it worth to get this one back as it has a lot of good stuff for new readers.

Just to get the ball rolling again;

I was in WH Smith before, a shop that has probably the best collection of magazines in the UK, and seen there are quite a few mags on Serial killers and such like. Wondering if anyone has ever bought any of these? I have seen them for a long time, at least 20 years as my Mum used to buy them.

How do you go about buying them? Up until recently I was embarrassed to buy a wrestling mag - is this embarrassing or what? I know buying porn has the stigma but surely buying that type of mag is even worse. Porn is bad but it's there, murder is just a bit odd to be buying stuff about for some people.

Carrying on with that and saying my Mum used to read them, (Her friend ran the shop over the road that stocked them and they both had an interest so it wasn't really strange,) how did you go about getting interested in True Crime? For me it was watching Channel 5 documentaries about this stuff, and a couple of things that happened about 100 yards from where I lived, one which is one of the most brutal in British history, sparked something. I have an interest, but more of a marcabre fascination as there is still some I can't delve too far into.

So what's everyone's story? What sparked the interest? Ever bought magazines, how did you handle that stigma attached?

You could've made another thread, but it's fine. This is one of the better threads in Anything.

It'll probably die again. Zodiac keeps killing it.
Yeah, I was thinking of a new thread to just ask my question but didn't think it was thread-worthy, so thought I'd ask in this thread whether it was okay to bring it back. I tried to use common sense rather than just another thread asking a subjective question.

Good man, thanks for the feedback.

I'm going to try keep it up for a little while as we managed a good while with it and it's something a few of us seem open to discussing, however strange it is.

This is scary. I never realized there were so many!

John Douglas, a former chief of the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit and author of "Mind Hunter," says, "A very conservative estimate is that there are between 35 and 50 active serial killers in the United States" at any given time. Often, Douglas told me, they will, "kill two to three victims and then have a 'cooling-off' period between kills."

Bumping this thread because of the recent court appearance of Joseph James DeAngelo, aka the Golden State Killer.

Has anyone heard of this guy? He was known as the East Area Rapist and Original Night Stalker, or EAR/ONS until he was given the GSK moniker in 2016. He was active in the 70's and early 80s in different parts of California. Throughout his different crime sprees he broke into over 200 homes, committed 50 rapes and killed 13 people. I remember seeing this case on Unsolved Mysteries and Cold Case Files and for the longest time I wanted this dirt bag to be caught, but I truly never believed he would be identified. In 2018 he was tracked down using a genealogy website, and turns out he was a police officer during most of his crimes.

They're now saying the preliminary hearings will happen in May.
