    Guys. Forget fucking Mr. Cruel.

    The EAR has (purportedly) been matched 100% to a DNA sample of somebody arrested. That's it.

    Might be good idea to split out this arrest to a new thread. Pretty huge story.

    On page one right now, but odd to "fear" that serial killers are going to get caught before they can "amount a large body count"

    EDIT ...anddddd others have pointed this out

    It’s been a few years since I’ve read some serial killer books. What are some of the best ones that have been released in the past few years?

    Realize these posts are years old and you’ve probably learned more since then, but Bundy was someone I learned a lot about over the course of this past semester while teaching a forensic science class.

    This interview, like many he did with both police and press over the course of his time on death row, was imo carefully constructed to buy him time or clemency from his execution. With the cops and feds, it was his “Bones-for-time” scheme, where he offered or vaguely hinted at locations of bodies in exchange for delays of his execution. The interviewer in question here, James Dobson, was the founder of Focus on the Family and had been on a decades-long crusade against pornography. LEOs who had interviewed Bundy in the decades prior state that he never even intimated many of the points he made in the Dobson interview prior to it.

    You can see his exceptional talent for playing people throughout the course of the interview; Dobson is practically eating out of his hand five minutes in, and there are several moments when Bundy pauses to look over to his left; that’s where the phone line from the governor, symbolizing a stay of execution, was sitting. Even in the 11th hour, he was still trying to get out of it.

    At the end of the day, I think Dorothy Lewis, a psychiatry professor at the New York University School of Medicine, said it best:

    "I always tell my graduate students that if they can find me a real, true psychopath, I'll buy them dinner. I never thought they existed ... but I think Ted may have been one, a true psychopath, without any remorse or empathy at all."

    always found it satisfying that Bundy at least went out as a sniveling little bitch:

    "Bundy, whom Blair termed "an emotional basket case" in the days prior to his execution, had spent his final hours praying with a Methodist minister, Frederic Lawrence of the Southwest Methodist Church in Gainesville.

    "He didn't want to die," Lawrence said. 'But he knew he had to. He cried, sure. We both cried. You have to cry for his victims, too."

    Bundy refused a last meal of steak and eggs and cried as prison officials shaved his right leg and head prior to leading him into the freshly painted gray death chamber at 7:01 a.m."

    Also, somebody earlier ITT asked about a big Bundy movie being made; idk how big it will be, but Zac Efron is filming one called Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. It focuses on Bundy from the perspective of his long-term girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, who will be played by Lily Collins.

    I started listening to a Serial Killer podcast and the first one was HH Holmes. It led me to wonder how many additional serial killers there were back then because it was so easy to explain why someone disappeared? The poscasr isn't great, but it provides some insight as to what happened.

    On Aug. 10, 2017, the co-worker watched Bass toss out a plastic cup and a Coke can.......... On Dec. 12, 2017, Bass was arrested

    no hurry, apparently. Imagine being around this guy and knowing that police suspect him as the killer.

    "I have a feeling you're the killer. Pay me $5k and I won't tell the cops to get your DNA."

    using a citizen is interesting (no s/w needed for discarded trash though fwiw). How many ppl are going to bring in DNA now that they want uploaded into CODIS of suspicious ppl they personally know.

    Not a lawyer but the cops asking someone who seems willing to help with the case if the dude eats or drinks anything at work seems like kind of an obvious ploy to get DNA evidence

    Seems like the judge knows this dude did it and found a loophole to make sure that the evidence was admissible.

    wes tegg thoughts?

    Wouldn't the defense argue that the police gave her the idea even if she technically proposed it?

    And would it be inadmissible if a judge agreed that was the case?

    I haven't read the whole thing, so I'm not sure what exactly happened. But, what the admissibility would come down to is whether she acted as an agent of the cops -- i.e., someone doing something for them -- or, if she brought them evidence a la a whistleblower. It may not seem like it, but that's a pretty important difference.

    It’s not like they can’t get his DNA (legally) at any point now. They can drop the case and re-file, among other methods. In other words, he is screwed.

    Preview Oxygen's New Series 'Mark Of A Killer'

    "Mark of a Killer" examines the disturbing behaviors of serial killers.

    Oxygen Media, the destination for high-quality crime programming, examines the disturbing behaviors of serial killers in“Mark of a Killer,” premiering Sunday, January 20 at 7PM ET/PT. Some killers are collectors who obtain perverse gratification by habitually stealing mementos from murder scenes, from jewelry to shoes, keys to even body parts. These clues are left to taunt law enforcement and investigators while simultaneously building up their notoriety. Whether it’s text scrawled onto the victim’s body, a cryptic note or a way of positioning the deceased, what is left behind is a trademark clue that ultimately aids the investigation in stopping these murders and bringing the killer to justice.

    Each hour-long episode of “Mark of a Killer” follows the story of an investigation guided by the killer’s postmortem signature and features first-hand accounts fromdetectives who worked on the cases, interviews with criminal psychology experts and with family members and friends of the victims. The premiere episode dives into the infamous Gainesville Ripper who helped ring in a new school year at the University of Florida in 1990 with a string of murders, posing his victims in grotesque ways and cutting their clothes from their bodies. These trademarks are at the center of each tale, and prove to be crucial factors in identifying the killers and ending their reign of terror.

    “Mark of a Killer” is produced by Motiv8 Media and Jarrett Creative with Kara Kurcz serving as Executive Producer for Motiv8 Media. Seth Jarrett and Julie Insogna Jarrett serve as Executive Producers for Jarrett Creative. Brian Lee & Wendy Greene also serve as Executive Producer.
